Make-Do Mondays is a carnival dedicated to sharing the creative, frugal or even humble ways we’re making-do.And please forgive me for running late today.To participate, simply explain some way that you’re making do. Join in the discussion via the comments or Mr. Linky. The Mr. Linky for WordPress.com is pretty lame, but I’m using it anyway. Here’s how it works:Click on the Mr. Linky icon, and a separate page will pop up where you type in your name and paste in the url of your new Make-Do Mondays post. Click enter and it should be live. If it doesn’t work, just include the link in the comments.To visit people’s posts, click on Mr. Linky and when the page comes up, click on a name. You should be taken right to the page that they provided.Make-Do Monday Participants

Make-Do Mondays with the KroekersRemember the video cassette recorder?Visitors to our home marvel that we still use a VCR in an age of TiVo and DVRs.Don’t get me wrong — They sound like an efficient way to manage commercials and control what you want to watch (and when). We’d love to have one of the new recording devices.But we don’t.What’s more, we only have bare minimum cable (basically just our local channels and major networks) because our antennae reception was so terrible (I confess, however, that we do have a high-speed Internet access; I’m not making do with dial-up). We have very few channels — which means we watch very few shows.So we record the few that interest us on the major networks and don’t really worry about what we’re missing.On occasion, we’ve asked my parents to record a special show that we can’t get.Otherwise, we’re just making do.How about you?
