Some things to talk about

Good Morning. It's a cloudy cool morning here. Which is fine with me. I like mornings like this. Miller and I are the only ones still here. Scott and Madison have already left. We were up late last night as Madison cheered at 8:30...so we didn't get home until 10pm. I was tired...she still needed to shower and I had to wash her Cheer uniform as she is cheering again tonight at 8pm. Yes I know it's late and she brought home every school book in her locker last night. Crazy. And we have 3 tests this week. Middle School is much more demanding than Elementary school was.

Today is a new day though...right? I enjoy my schedules...my routines. I enjoy having something to work for or do all the time. Today Miller has a music class and we have one errand to run. Then we are coming home to make frosted brownies and prepare dinner for tonight and then Miller will nap. While he naps.....I will mop the hardwood finally. Laundry is caught up. I need to start going over some lists for Christmas....I know it sounds crazy. But...i need to make some lists and start getting ready so I don't fall behind. Does anyone else do this?

Tonight's dinner is Poppyseed Chicken, green beans, corn and Texas toast...brownies for dessert.
Madison has gymnastics and then studying and then a game to cheer at.....but that is how we live our life...going from one experience to another....we love it.

The new fall shows are coming out which ones are you looking forward to? We are excited about several...The Biggest Loser, The Amazing Race, Survivor, The Office, Brothers and Sisters, Desperate Housewives....you name it and I'm ready.

Have a great Tuesday everyone....enjoy.

I am such a TV buff. I can't wait until Survivor. It is my favorite show of all. I also want to see a new batchelor show. I know that sounds cheezy but I like it. And can't forget about Desperate Housewives.......my favorite show for sure. Is it really going to be 5 yrs later on that one?

I like my life busy too. As long as Madison enjoys cheering so much why not let her do it. I figure you can always catch up on sleep on the weekend. You are right, Middle school is much more demanding and High school takes it up another notch, but I am guessing it is great preparation for college. It seems by mid year the kids get into a pretty good routing and know which day's homework will be heavier so it all works out.

Can you believe I watch every show you do. I heard this is survivors last season. I really love Brothers and Sisters. The chemistry between Calista Flockhart and Rob Lowe (pardon my spelling if it's not correct) is amazing. I wonder what will happen with Justin and Rebecca, this is going to be a touchy storyline.

I love Brothers and Sisters and can't wait to start seeing the new season. We just saw the season opener for Sarah Chronciles on Fox last night (we're huge sci-fi buffs) and it was great.

Your dinner sounds great!

Yum, poppyseed chicken is so good.
I'm looking forward to Amazing Race, Survivor, Dancing with the Stars and Lost if it ever comes back on! Love me some reality tv!

I remember the days when we were busy, like that. Seems like yesterday.

I'm looking forward to Dancing With the Stars and NCIS.

Have a great rest of the week.

I understand getting in bed too late. The last 2 nights I've been helping my Kindergartener with his "homework" at 10:00. I felt like such a failure. He was fine, but I meant to get him in bed much earlier than that.

Tonight is church so it won't be an early, lazy evening.

We really like to watch Survivor but didn't get to watch every episode last season, even when I recorded it. We've cut way back on watching tv, but I look forward to the new season.

I had to work this week for one of the docotrs...so that is putting me working 10 days strait. I got sick last week and I have struggled every day. Danny says I am a wimp. lol. BUT when your doing it for those kids...it doesnt seem like work does it. Your a good Mama. The only tv shows I really like to watch is Scrubs and the Closer. Danny hates tv shows because of commercials.
