I did not do a recap last week - too busy. But let me just say that it was billed as a “shocking elimination” and when we saw Carla running around Target dazed and confused, we were both very worried that she would leave. And, talented as Angelo is, I was not sad to see him leave. It was very clear he screwed up - and well, I have a hard time rooting for him. But it was awesome to see a grilled cheese and tomato soup win the day. We eat that constantly over here, although I’m sure it’s not nearly as tasty as Dale’s.
Speaking of Dale….we move on to this week’s episode. (more…)
Here’s a question for y’all. Do you think there is a level of privacy inherently expected within marriage, ie, you shouldn’t read your spouse’s email, or journal, or whatever, or do you think that if you’re married to somebody, it means that everything is open? I don’t have a dog in this fight, I’m just curious what others think. I’ve known of marriages that have suffered because one spouse read another’s “personal and private” communications, and I’m wondering how people feel about keeping certain things private from a spouse. And if so, what kinds of things do you keep private? Like I said, I don’t have a point, necessarily, just pondering.
Also, is there a level of privacy inherently implied within a family, i.e., you shouldn’t read your child’s journal, read texts, etc? Are there lines that shouldn’t be crossed unless there is a problem, and if so, when does that line get nullified?
Kids and spouses. How much can/should we know. Discuss.
Well, I’m doing it again. Here goes nothing. Again. Last time I did it, I lasted all of what, four days? I think I’m at about that now. I learned a few things before- and this time I jumped the gun and laid down not only very specific perameters that locked out the octogenarians, but I’m also skipping the LDS sites and going traditional. I know, I know. but hear me out… (more…)
I can either clean my house or exercise my body. Somehow, I don’t have the emotional energy to do both. And seeing as most of my workouts are 20-30 minutes long, (well, yoga is longer) that does seem slightly pathetic.
Did you know that Natalie from the 30 day shred has her own workout video? True story - it was on my Comcast On Demand Exercise TV. Now we can hear her speak!
Why is the worst part of exercising the changing of the bra?
OK, I have to go do my windows now. My in-laws are coming. Wish me luck.
Okay, I know it’s rated R. I went to it anyway, because I’m a speech therapist, stuttering is flippin’ hard to treat, Colin Firth and Geoffrey Rush are two of my favs, and I had some time to kill. (I was in Boston, getting a check up, alone, and I had 7 hours with nothing to do, and it was Feb. in New England. Like I said, time to kill.)
I highly recommend this movie, and I don’t care who you are, you are going to love it. (more…)
(I was sick this week, so I missed a few days. Sue me.)
You’re a big fat liar. Okay, maybe you’re not fat, but you ARE a liar. You made me think that Level 1 is the easy level, and that Level 3 is of the devil. Now that I’ve done all three levels, and went back to Level 1 again today, I’m here to tell you that ALL of your levels are of the devil. (more…)
I do remember, though, when I was nursing a newborn, I felt that this movie WAS my life. Every day, all day, the only thing I did was sit and nurse. And then nurse some more. And then - OH YEAH - she’s hungry! How silly of me to put a shirt on! Fortunately, and unfortunately, those days are over.
And remember - don’t drive angry! Good advice, always.
