A Couch With A View

ImageI am really NOT holding up on my promises to blog more, and I am sorry.  This household has been plagued with illness for the last two weeks.  First P got hit with the flu, then he had a nasty toothache which turned into two root canals and a wisdom tooth being pulled.  I was playing nurse for P for a week (and trust me it wasn’t the fun kind of playing “nurse” *wink*) when I then got hit with the worst sore throat followed by an even worse cold…ugh.  So with all of the aforementioned excuses, I just have not been writing, nor have I really had much to write about.  The majority of time spent by me (especially this week) has been spent in bed (again, not the fun kind of time in bed *wink*) or on the couch watching a crap ton of television.

I have come to one conclusion spending so much time on my back lately (for the last time, NOT the fun kind of time on my back *double wink*):  Daytime TV is AWFUL!!!  I channel surfed for a majority of my time.  Side note:  Does anyone know how many calories this kind of surfing burns?

A quick recap of my time spent vegging out:

There are so many shows that just focus on the foolish and the ignorant.  It is astonishing to me how many women don’t know who their “baby daddy” is.

Then there are channels like HGTV and the Food Network which make me feel like an inferior housewife who can’t decorate or cook.

Don’t even get me started on the History Channel.  Or rather, the “History” Channel (yep, that’s right I just pulled out the old writer’s trick of bitchy air quotes).  My attention must have been elsewhere in my history classes when all of the lessons regarding men wielding axes and people living in swamps were taught.

Lastly, this girl loves her Bravo but even this channel is lackluster during the daytime.  An example, the movie “Crossroads” was on yesterday.  THE “Crossroads” with Britney Spears in it.  Double Ugh.

So instead of watching television all week, which I thought would be fun, I slept (which was actually pretty fun). Tried to do a couple of chores around the house but got super tired and promptly slept some more.

Other random notes that I will likely tweet later to my 15 followers:

Had a dream about getting some amazing deals at an unadvertised Victoria’s Secret clearance sale.  Not sure what this type of dream means.

My guesses:

A)  I am officially old.

B) Fantasizing about a good deal.

C)  In desperate need of new underwear.

D)  All of the above.

If you have Netflix instant streaming I highly recommend the documentary “The Woman Who Wasn’t There: The True Story Of An Incredible Deception”.  I don’t want to give anything away but I was fascinated by this story.

Your house really does pay you to clean.  Feeling better today so decided to do some spring cleaning and I am now $0.30 richer.  Truly feel like a baller…or maybe a shot caller?  Haven’t decided yet.

Happy Wife = Happy Life Tip of the Day:  Husbands, if you tell your wives “You look so beautiful”, just end the statement there.  Don’t say “You look so beautiful.  The light is hitting you just right”.  I’m not going to name any names, or initials, but a certain someone said that to this blogger recently, and let’s just say the light wasn’t the only thing that was “hitting” just right.

Yowzas!  That was a very random blog, but at least I blogged!
