The Season has begun

I’m not talking about Thanksgiving/Christmas we all know that is upon us, unless you’ve been hiding under a rock. We have 34 days until Christmas. I’m not complaining this year because both my kids are done and I’m well on the way to being done with EVERYONE.

I was specifically referring to the commercials geared for full on ugly cry sobs. It’s come to me having to get up and walk out of the room. It’s terrible. Because I don’t like to suffer alone (no one does) here’s a few just for you. Grab your kleenex….

Here’s the worst one this year… just makes me crumble.

Hallmark is always the big winner – they get me every time but Folgers is a close second. This is a classic, doesn’t really choke me up anymore but it’s still a goodie but cheesy. When the mom walks down the steps and exclaims… OH PETER!!

That’s all I can come up with… I know there a few others that have choked me up this year so far and I can’t remember what they are…. oh well. I did find this one…. Okay I’m just warning you… this one is the best of the worst. SO incredibly sad and it’s not holiday.

 

I’ll leave you with a nice friendly one that evokes happiness… and a catchy song

TV Tonight

Of course we watched the Jim/Pam/Baby episode of the Office tonight… who didn’t?! I thought it was hilarious. SPOILERS!!

-She didn’t want to go to the hospital, that was funny. How many out there went into the labor for the first time and didn’t want to go to the hospital? That would be me. When I had L, my water broke and I sat on the toliet saying “it’ll stop, don’t worry, my water didn’t break, I just wet my pants”. She was born 6 hours later.

-Um…. Dwight… he escorted them to the hospital, threw weapons out the window as he was being pulled over, signed a contract to have a baby with Angela, broke into Jim and Pam’s house, slept in their bed naked and destroyed their kitchen. He had a very busy night.

-Did you happen to see the cringe scene where Pam breastfed the other ladies baby? Yikes. Yeah it was bad.

OMG the whole show was hilarious.

Now we are watching the Marriage Ref. Love this new show. People are so weird. Did you see the freak last week with the stuffed dog?

The metrosexual guy, that was a little creepy. I’m with the wife. I’m not a fan of a man that gets manis and pedis. I think Eva Longoria Parker said it best, “he’s on the path of mani, pedi, tannie, trannie”. Thank god my man is exactly that… a man. My friend and I joke about her hubby being metro, I will never say that again after seeing that guy. Friend if you read this, your hubby is far from metro 😉

The second couple… she’s crazy. First with the table, not using a dining room table? Correct me if I’m wrong but aren’t tables supposed to be used. Second with the porch, my man is not a handy man but it doesn’t mean he’s not a good man and thank you Natalie Morales for saying that women are actually better at following directions and assembling items. Yes, yes we are.

Third couple, ewwww!!! I’m with Jerry on this one. Separation of church and state. You’d have to watch to get it.

Fourth couple, the ring issue. Ok fine take it off to play basketball but then put it back on stupid.

BTW I won’t do this every week. I just felt like blogging tonight and it’s all I could think of to blog about.

Am I the only that can’t wait to see minute to win it?! I wanna see if the guy gets all the tissues out of the box in a minute. 🙂

Are you watching???

Big Brother is in full swing. Lord have mercy. This show is crazy. I watch every year and some years I can’t stand to watch but this one, man oh man. They are playing in cliques. Yeah, high school cliques. I HATED high school mainly because my school was full of cliques. But that a whole other post. Here’s what I think of the schemers and players…

Lydia is a snake.

Kevin needs to shut his mouth. Quit putting yourself in the middle of everything.

Natalie is like that little dog that follows around the bulldog in the sylvester cartoons. All she does is follow around Jessie and Russell.

Russell is the worst!!! He is like the house bully.

Ronnie needs to watch his step. He may be Head of Household this week but he needs to stop promising everything to both sides because he’s going to get caught, hopefully.

Well, can you tell which side I would be on, the underdogs. I do not like people who bully others. This is definitely like watching high school. Okay I had to speak my peace because the show is really starting to bug me.

I Could Get Use to This

Since I have been nothing but sick this week this means I have been laying on the couch all week. Occasionally I get up and assist my children with meals or whatever they may need, but they have been so good this week. Today was actually the first day where I had had enough of the attitudes and fights, so that’s pretty good. We made it Thursday. Tomorrow I am not going to venture out because I am still suffering from a really BAD ear infection in my right ear (nope have been to the dr yet) but I will at least get the kids outside to break up the monotony.

Anyway, the whole reason I am blogging tonight is to tell you about what I am currently addicted to… House Hunters and House Hunters International. I did go through this faze last year but after I had seen all of the episodes it wasn’t as much fun to watch anymore.

I love to sit and look through the three houses that they show and then try to guess which one they are going to choose (we also make fun of the couples… shhh don’t tell). I have recently started putting myself in the houses too. For instance when they show the bedrooms, I’ll say “ooh that’s a good one for J or for L” etc. I also have strong opinions on the kitchens and backyards and bathrooms. Basically everything. I get really excited when JT sits down with me to watch (it’s on at night for an hour) because then we have a discussion about the houses and which one we would choose.

Yeah TV has been an important family member this week. I even watched Little House on the Prarie this week. Is it just me or do you prefer the earlier ones better too?? This week it didn’t matter I watched it anyway. I have to get outside tomorrow, if I’m not rushing to the doc for an insane ear infection that is killing me. Similasan isn’t working either, does anyone use this? It doesn’t seem to be working for me.

Recent Reality TV

I swear I am going to post pictures of our playdate on Thursday but I had to get this off my chest.

Do you watch the reality show on Bravo called The Real Housewives of Orange County? I used to watch this show consistently but now that the 4th season is over I am a little behind. What I do know is that I cannot stand Vicki or Tamra. Vicki cannot own a single issue she has, she is not to blame for a single dang thing. She drives me to insanity. I watched the final episode and the reunion show and just shook my head the entire time. I told JT it’s like a trainwreck, you can’t seem to look away. The only one on the show that I like is Jeana. She seems more down to earth than the rest. Or at least she is nicer than the rest.

On last night’s reunion show they showed these t-shirts and I really want one. They are hysterical. It’s not a shot at real boobs it’s just a shot at the women.

real-oranges-shirt

At $29.95 a piece I probably will resist the urge but I think they are funny.

Have you seen the New York version? Wow they are even crazier. I have to admit that Simon and Alex are huge weirdos but I don’t watch this show too often. So I don’t really have a lot of opinions on it.

I have to admit I am looking forward to watching the season finale for The Girls Next Door. I am addicted to this crazy show. But I guess I just don’t get it. This is also like watching a show full of crazy things I would never do. Like flashing the captain of a boat or flashing Britain’s Parliment. It’s just not in me. They did a final Playboy cover shoot and inside I guess there’s an article on the girls. I have to admit I am tempted to purchase my first Playboy magazine just to read the articles (how many times have we all heard that).

More people than I knew

There are more people out there that I run across that watch Jon & Kate Plus 8 than I thought. It’s a guilty pleasure of mine. I’ve talked about it several times on here but lately I’ve been thinking about them more, with them moving into their new house and my friend and I talking about them the other night. In fact she just sent me this link http://sixgosselins.blogspot.com/2008/09/how-much-do-jon-and-kate-gosselin-make.html. It basically breaks down how much they probably make in one year. YIKES!!! My friend also reminded me that in this last episode (did you see it) where they moved into their house… she read him the riot act for not using a coupon on some item. Poor Jon. I can be tough on my husband but he has assured me I have never been that tough on him. 

Now with all that said what about the single mom that recently had 8 babies but already had 6 at home including twins. That’s a lot of kids… 14 to be exact. They say that she wasn’t after money but instead “one more girl”?????? The mother says that “her daughter isn’t evil, she’s just obsessed with kids.” I really don’t even know where to go with this… really obsessed with kids?! Is that for real? Some days I can barely take my two let alone 12 more. I’ll leave it at that. It’s a touchy subject but if you want to leave a comment with your opinion please feel free.

Thanks for all the well wishes from all of our family and friends. We will keep you updated…

Would you???

If you were given the opportunity would you become a pageant mom? Have your child compete in pageants? I’m not in the mood to do much today so I am camped out on the couch watching TV. I ran across two shows. The first one is called Toddlers and Tiaras, I have to admit I DVR’d this one. I was compelled to see what it was really like, the pageant life especially from the eyes of a toddler. My daughter being super girly was told to play in her room. I really did not want her to watch the show. What if she became interested and wanted to wear the fancy dresses and have bouffant hair and caked on makeup, spray on tans… etc. What I got from the show, nothing. I understood that it’s probably expensive and they can win money for coming in “first” but the moms were a little more pushy than I would like to be with my own daughter. L did appear about halfway through the show and she didn’t really take an interest (whew). The older girls were pretty, the toddlers looked like dolls and the moms, yes the moms looked very nice. There you go, not so bad and truth be told I will probably catch it again.

The second show is Little Miss Perfect. I haven’t seen this show yet but I will watch possibly one episode to see what it’s all about. Here’s a clip from YouTube.

I would love to hear what you think. I don’t think badly of these parents, they are just doing what they know and what they want for their own kids and trust me I’ve thought about it a couple of times, I just don’t have the money or energy. Plus, I just don’t want to.

Oh and for you Jon & Kate Plus 8 fans… they move into their new, big, beautiful house tonight.

Ellen DeGeneres Cracks Me Up

I don’t usually sit down and watch the Ellen DeGeneres show but today since we just came in from the snow and we are just relaxing I decided to turn it on. It’s not because I dislike the show, I love the show!!! I am usually at this time getting J ready for a nap and it’s just usually a busy time in my day. Anyway today she had me cracking up. She did her whole monologue on Facebook (which I love by the way). Did you see it? She is hilarious. If you become her fan on Facebook today you could be entered to win a flat screen TV. Easy choice for me. Just make sure you choose the show one, her actual one because there are a ton of fake ones.

Fingers crossed…

I hope Korto is the winner of Project Runway. I’ll update.

Ah man, it was Leanne. I thought her line was okay, too much of the wave thing but I think Korto’s was better. My simple opinion. Maybe now she’ll start styling her hair.

This morning I was getting the kids ready for school and we had Playhouse Disney on… what else! The Happy Monster Band came on and sometimes they have cute songs but so far this is my favorite… follow this link http://atv.disney.go.com/playhouse/happymonsterband/worldtour/videos/index.html and click on Japan. Sorry I couldn’t find it anywhere else.
