Saturday Randomness

Here are just some random thoughts to close out the week…

  • I am oh-so-glad that it’s January, and TV goodness has begun once again. Between the Bachelor, 24, the Biggest Loser, etc. my social calendar is filled, my friends.
  • Speaking of television, two weeks into a Paula-free American Idol, and I haven’t missed her. At all.
  • One more TV bit, I am once again sucked into Celebrity Rehab. If you need another reason to say no to drugs or just need a reminder that folks still need Jesus, you should really check that show out.
  • Three weeks into the new year and I’m still on the exercise bandwagon. And, hold on to your hats, I’m not hating it!
  • Also, I tried out the Biggest Loser Cardio Max DVD this week, and apparently I have not grown any coordination in the last 20 years.
  • I started reading Charlie and the Chocolate Factory to Abby this week. Pure torture for someone on a diet. Pure. Torture.
  • My son, who just began speaking a language that we can understand a few months ago, can count and recognize his numbers from 1 to 6. When did this happen? For all those “experts” who say kids can’t learn from watching television, I have a 2 year old that can recognize his numbers that can prove you wrong. (And just so you don’t think I am against trying to teach my kids stuff at home, I’m not. I just generally think it’s a good idea that they first have a good grasp of the English language, which Grayson has not quite mastered yet.)
  • has forever changed the way I shop at Wal-Mart (which is not very often anymore). It has helped with impulse buying though, because I am constantly looking for strange looking people. And, incidently, YOU DON’T HAVE TO LOOK FAR.

Hope you all have a great Saturday! I plan to spend the majority of mine in my pajamas.

  1. I can totally relate to the 2 year old counting! I also have a 2 year old. Much of what she says is still foreign to us. For awhile, she would "count" and say, "Wah, dee, wah, dee." (one, two, one, two) so I assumed that was all she knew. Not long ago, we sat down and read a counting book and she went to 10! Most of the words didn't sound like the actual number, but they had the same beginning sound and the right number of syllables so she clearly knew what she was saying. I felt the same way...when, where and how did she learn it? A combination of us playing/teaching her, books, and yes TV. In moderation and with the right programs, it's not the monster some make it out to be!


Tell me what you think...go on, I can take it!
