We have been without cable for a few years now.  I miss being able to watch football.  A lot.  With the Saints preseason starting in just one week, I’ve been smoozing my husband in an attempt to sign up for Direct TV while they have a special for a free NFL Ticket.  I *think* it might be working.  Funny how it is somehow easier for him to say yes to things when I’m in the 3rd trimester in miserable Texas heat.  Unfortunately for Ty, my yes mechanism seems to be broken.

Ty:  Can I have a cable box in my room?
Me:  NO.  NO.  Uh, NO.  Not on your life.  The first time you will have cable in your room is when you move out.
Jase:  Mom doesn’t sound very flexible on this.
Ty:  Ya think?
