I don’t care how you serve it up – I just need it! Downtime is really hard to come by at my house these days. My four-month-old boy, Baby B, has been so cranky lately! It’s nice to know that he’s a happy baby during the day, but he is such a different child when we get home from work. Nothing seems to make this boy happy. And someone please explain to me – how do babies seem to know when the person carrying them has sat down? The WHAAAAAs begin within seconds of hitting the couch. Unbelieveable! Baby B (as cute as he is) is a 4-month hefty weighing 18 pounds. It’s nearly impossible to carry him for long stretches of time. Lordy Lord, please calm this child! (And pass a cup ‘o joe while you’re at it.)
I’m keeping my fingers crossed for a quiet night tonight. Tuesday is the best TV night at my house. Starting with my DVRd Oprah (yes, I love her show – no comments, Peanut Gallery) then Biggest Loser, Glee, and Parenthood. All quality shows. Ooh, and the OWN network is premiering Lisa Ling’s Our America tonight. Can’t wait to watch. I love her journalistic style and the topics she covers are fascinating.
On second thought, after re-reading that last paragraph, I just realized how awful that sounds. All those shows add up to 6 HOURS of television in ONE night. Just a tad bit excessive, don’t ‘cha think? Maybe I won’t sit through a TV marathon tonight.
New challenge: Only watch one hour of TV a day this week. My DVR may go on overload, but I think I can do it. What to pick this evening? Parenthood. Definitely. I can relate to so many characters on this show. My least-favorite is Kristina Braverman (Monica Potter). She’s married to Adam Braverman (Peter Krause) on the show. She’s just…annoying. Yeah, that’s a good word for her. I just love to hate her. I cringe at some of the things she says or does, then I realize that I am so much like her. It’s pretty scary. It doesn’t help that she’s my husband’s least favorite character too. Think he’s trying to tell me something? I hope not.
