Good Monday morning ya'll!
It's good to be back at the computer - I am starting to feel much better. Still have the "fog horn" cough and the masculine voice, but it is getting better everyday. Pretty soon Dan will stop asking me "What did you say?" Well, at least not every time I say something.
I hope you all had a fabulous weekend - but to tell you the truth I'm getting a little depressed. Why? Well, yesterday was the Pro Bowl, which means - there is only ONE more football game this season. That is such a bummer for me! I don't know what I'll do on Saturday's and Sunday's - much less Monday night and Thursday night.
Seriously, our whole TV schedule is skewed around football. This is (or was) our TV watching schedule:
Monday - Monday Night Football
Tuesday - NCIS (only show we watch every week)
Wednesday - anything that I've TiVo'ed (Castle usually)
Thursday - Thursday Night Football
Friday - nothing (this is usually when we watch a rented movie)
Saturday - College ball
Sunday - Pro ball starting with pre-game stuff until the late game
Pretty lame, huh?
Really - this is our TV viewing schedule.
So, as you can see, we have a problem Houston.
There is nothing to watch anymore -
we are not Basketball fans, racing fans, or hockey fans.
Now, I will watch golf (yep, golf) IF Tiger is playing.
Now, before anyone jumps on my case - I don't agree with what Tiger did in his personal life - but that was in the past and he has paid dearly for his major screw up. I still like to see him play golf - and when he is on - NO ONE can come close to him.
Anyway, I have ordered some books for my Kindle so it looks like Dan and I will spend a lot more time with the TV off and the Kindle's on.
Not, necessarily a bad thing.
Boy, am I completely off topic.
So, let's get back to the program.
I'm sure that many of you (if there are people out there that do actually read this) have this problem - but we aren't use to this anymore. I'm a little OCD - okay, a lot OCD - so, this is something that I'm getting used to again.
What am I talking about?
Take a look
You see, when my oldest daughter was a baby, her dad and I rented a nice little house in Thomasville, GA. In the family room was a wall of wonderful bookcases - with cabinets on the bottom. Wonderful storage! In the middle was an open area for the TV and underneath was a big cabinet with no shelves. So, I put a big round laundry basket, and at the end of the day all the toys went in the basket - close the door and all was clean again.
This is really pretty tame -
but you know what -
I don't care.
Let her make a mess - it takes about two minutes to pick it up and put it in her toy basket. She is only going to be a baby for such a short period of time. Such a small price to pay for being able to take care of her every day.
She certainly pays for any mess she makes with her smiles, and her hugs, and her little kisses.
So, where was she when I took this picture this morning?
