  • That used to drive me crazy, I didn't realize how crazy until we had our satellite service shut off 2 years ago. Last Christmas my kids were completely different, they only asked for things they actually wanted, not what the tv told them they wanted. They don't know what the latest and greatest new toy is and they don't care. Getting rid of the tv was the best decision I've ever made. :)

  • It makes me crazy to think that he wants it all. To bad I have been done shopping for about a month and do not plan on going into a store for anything else .
