Yesterday, I was paying DD13 to "babysit" the twins for me while I worked on this week's eBay listings. I heard the twins in the kitchen, and it sounded like they were fighting. They had the remote to our Sony TV, and they were playing tug of war with it. I took it away from them and noticed a red light flashing inside it (I'd never noticed this light before). Some of the buttons had big chunks bitten out of them I was confused how they had even gotten the remote in the first place because I thought DD13 had super-glued it to her hand the day school let out for summer. Yep, DD13 was asleep on the couch (just napping for a second . Long story made short, the remote doesn't work now. Last night after we were in bed, I kept hearing noises down in the living room. I got my baseball bat (I was home alone, Dh was working) and crept down the stairs. I had put the broken remote on the end table and it was turning the TV off an on rapidly! I put it in a drawer in the kitchen. Dh looked at it this morning and it is definitely broken. I bought a new one on a Buy It Now listing for about $5 cheaper than the other internet sources.
