You know what, I love my hubby, I really do, I mean, I love him so much, I would give him one of my lungs if I had to…. erm well you know, eventually…. erm, if there were no other choices….and if his family were unavailable for a REALLY good reason… and if I didn’t actually have to experience any pain…. lungs… hmmm, ok maybe not my lungs, but certainly a vital part of my body, maybe a kidney…? Erm how many of those do we have…? Anyway, I digress, my whole point is, I would be willing to give up one of my vital organs for him, but when it comes to the channel changer? Are you kidding me? Seemingly I would rather gnaw off my own arm than give that baby up to him!

I can see ya thinking, ‘Hello, give it up already for the sake of world peace’, but the words, hell, freeze, and over, instantly spring to mind, when I think about giving up the power button!
Is this a power thing, or did something go wrong in the womb, that led me to this very point in my life. I can assure you, I was breast fed, so it’s not that. It is definitely puzzling.

Wednesday nights are my best TV nights, what with the fantastically trashy TV offerings such as, Desperate Housewives, The Apprentice (The English Version, which is where I believe the Donald got the initial idea from) America’s Next Top Model (shallow I know, but I still love it) and Will and Grace! Hubby wanted to watch Discovery Wings, I mean, not even just the Discovery Channel, HE WANTED TO WATCH DISCOVERY WINGS! What’s that about? He expected moi to give up DH and Will and Grace, in order to watch flying planes? Ooookay, you know that that wasn’t gonna happen right?

Well folks, you’ll be pleased to know, we came to a compromise. I mean, I would really hate for my marriage to dissolve just because we have different taste in TV, so ya know what, we’re getting Sky Plus! We will now be able to watch Satellite TV upstairs and downstairs, so if there’s something on TV that he really wants to watch, that conflicts with what I want to watch, he now has the option of going upstairs! Talk about compromise huh, now that’s what I’m talkin’ about!
So is it just me, or do you go through this very emotional upheaval too?

    We don’t have to argue about the remote control, as there are 3 TVs in the house AND we have Sky+ as well.

    DH can watch the soaps and I can watch Stargate SG-1, the Apprentice (wasn’t last night’s great?), DH and CSI. DD can watch the kids’ channels.

    Except of course, that I seem to spend most of my time in the kitchen and when the other TVs go on I get a crap picture. Bummer.

    Dawn, we also have three TV’s in the house, but only one TV that’s connected to Sky, hence the arguments!!

    Sarah, that was certainly to the point!! LOL!!

    LOL! I’m glad I don’t have to worry about that. As Sarah wrote, “THE REMOTE IS MINE!” 😉

    The remote has never been mine, but I get to have it more often these days cos baby does nothing but cry, so Mark goes upstairs to escape. At least I don’t have to put up with 168 hours of football each week now, lol
