My husband feeling the pain purchased both an external hard drive and a memory card reader. We are praying every day that one of the junky image recall discs can get back anything from the memory card we used. Apparently to get back the image off the hard drive cost hundreds. All of this happening right after the Holidays. So keep your prayers with us! Snapfish seems to be my only Godsend at the moment because I remembered I uploaded alot there. (Yes, I have hard copies of alot of photos, but it's the videos I miss the most).......sigh
Who Decides Which Episodes They Will Show?
I have received a few e-mails about how the episode guide changes weekly. Next week we were supposed to see "A Walk In The Woods", and now were seeing ANOTHER trip to the dentist. Now I have to be honest and say I wasn't thrilled with the first time they went. Only because it hit too close to home after my eldest child refused to go and had a temper tantrum right there in the office. It took 4 yes FOUR tries before she actually went and sat down, after I had to bribe her with a trip to TOYSRUS. So since I'm so against bribery and I had to succumb to it, another trip kinda sounds like they are fishing for things to film the kids doing. I would be interested mainly in seeing if Cara & Mady needed braces, because I will know what I'm going to be in for! So who at TLC decides on which shows to air? Does this mean that they are extra episodes we've never seen before? And why didn't they show them? Last year they're were at lease 5 that I counted that we never saw. Why couldn't we see them in the woods, wouldn't we have enjoyed that more than the dentist? lol I smell a "Never before seen episodes DVD!"
The Soup And The Not So Surprise
Before I get into my own review, I must say that theres something therapeutic about watching another family on TV go through the same issues as me. Granted they are more wealthy now, and a new stove to replace isn't as big of a deal, but watching last night took my mind off all the crying I had done. I really enjoyed last nights episode. I loved watching the children play and interact. And Alexis wiping her mouth before asking a question was the cutest thing ever. I also liked how Kate joked with the guy installing her stove. I also loved when Jon played with the kids and the play dough. I was told there was a comment on GWOP about someone even snarking about that! I must agree that when you mix the colors they are no longer desirable and get hard quicker, so Im totally in with him on that one.
The snarking trolls (which couldn't have anything bad to say since the episode was good but searched hard anyway) ran in numbers to complain and nitpick about dumb things. Kate's hair, Kate looks bored, Kate used filtered water. yawn people, that's the best you can do this week? Yes, Kate's hair is starting to bother me a bit, and I love that woman. I know shes got s look everyones talking about. And no one else has it. But its at that in between what is she going to do" stage. I hope she figures it out (lol). I agree with some that the couch scenes were filmed earlier because her hair looked really good in the kitchen. And if you had to do those those re-caps at all different times and for HOURS you would be bored too! (lol) And those on the East Coast LIVE with our filtered water. Its being used right now as we speak. So this episode was supposed to be what everyone wanted: getting back ot the everyday activites. Making soup was as everyday as you can get. So why is that still not good enough for everyone? I liked this good everyday episode. Did you?
