11/15/15 library movies…

Choosing movies for the kids has become much more difficult since the kids are older. When they were young, they hadn’t seen any movies, so any Walt Disney type movie that I brought home was a good choice according to the kids. The kids also got library cards and sometimes we would go to four libraries and check out movies at each one. We only did this on weekends when the weather was really bad and we couldn’t go out to play. Now that the kids are older they don’t like any of my choices. My solutions has been to always take one of the kids with me when we get movies. I do like to get a PBS type movie or two, but the kids pick out the rest of them. They choose the movies and I OK the movies. It has worked out well. The kids are watching the movies again. Sometimes we do get a movie that is different than how it is described on the back of the movie and I take it out of the VCR as soon as I figure this out, but mostly we get to watch all of the movies that we bring home.
What do you watch with your kids? How do you choose?
I need help in making my blog better. What are two things that you would like to see changed on my blog and how should it be changed? What are two things that you like about my blog. Thanks for the feedback!!



11/14/15 the TV…

We love library movies. When the kids were little they used to watch PBS and library movies, the other stations had shows that were sometimes OK, but the commercials could be for shows that came on later in the day or even in the evening. It became such a problem that eventually I said they could watch PBS or movies. They whimpered for a short while, but we have some movies and we go to the library for more a lot, so they eventually found that their choices were not that limited. When we all had to get the box for the TV a couple of years ago to keep the TVs working, we got one for each TV. Ours never worked right. We couldn’t get the five stations that we used to get and the ones that we did get faded in and out. We watched PBS now and then, they have some really good shows, but eventually the box died. I thought about not replacing it, but I didn’t want our family to be completely disconnected from the world. I also thought about buying a new TV. The new ones have this new technology, but I decided that just on principal I wouldn’t buy a new TV. If they came up with another new technology that we all had to buy next year, I wasn’t going to buy a new TV next year too. I often wondered if the kids felt like outsiders at school because they couldn’t talk about the latest shows with their friends. They said no, it hadn’t effected them much. They just said to their friends that they don’t watch TV but we watch a lot of library movies, then they go on with their conversation. We do turn on the TV for New Years Eve and sometimes for the Country Music Awards and if there is a large natural disaster on the world, but mostly we just watch movies.

How do you choose what your kids watch?

blog income
I have been looking for a way to bring extra cash into my family without getting a second job. I just want enough extra income to be able to pay the bills but still be able to have time to enjoy my kids. I tried a lot of web sites that offered envelope stuffing, they were all dead ends. Then I tried blogging. I figured that if enough people visited my blog then I could add advertisements and get paid. If I monetized my blog I could take the profit to help my family. I have found Blogsvertise. With them I can have advertisements on my blog, or have guest posts or have banner ads. I am still new to this.
