Last night was my last night of extended overpriced cable. I told you guys my cable plan, right? I ordered the extended overpriced cable package for the month of December, that way I could watch all the cheesy ABC Family and Lifetime Christmas movies. Then after Christmas I was going to downgrade to the unexcited 24 channel package. Don’t laugh! I’m saving $34 a month by downgrading and I was able to see all my Christmas movies. I watched two super cute Christmas movies on Lifetime, and no one was anorexic or a teenage mother in either movie. I honestly didn’t know Lifetime made movies without those storylines.
So how did I spend my last night with the overpriced cable? I watched a marathon of Jon & Kate Plus 8 on TLC. Have you guys seen this show? It’s about Jon and Kate who have eight kids. Yes, you read right eight kids. They have a set of twins (the oldest) and then they have sextuplets- which brings their child count to eight. Before the overpriced cable was installed I had only seen the show a few times. However, last night’s marathon caught me up on the whole season. I cannot imagine having eight kids. Oh.My.Word! I mean, my grandma had seven kids but they were different ages. I don’t know about having two the same age and six the same age. Also, how do they tell the kids apart? Ok, so they look different now, but when they were babies I’m sure they didn’t. I would have to label them for the first few months so I could tell them apart.
I suppose watching four hours of Jon & Kate Plus 8 reaffirmed that I do not want eight kids. I didn’t ever want eight kids, but now I know for sure I don’t want eight kids. Unless TLC is going to do a show about my family and pay for us to go to Disney World, Hawaii, fly me to NYC for a make-over, and give us lots of free toys. Now if that’s the case I might be willing to pop out eight kids. But only if I get my own show!
