Television

I am a huge fan of Heroes, Lost, Battlestar Galactica, The Office and a few other finely written shows. I was bemoaning the possibility that there will be no winter episodes to watch because of the writers strike. Then this morning I was reading this article when it came to me: (as I am sure it has to many people) maybe the best thing to come out this would that I watch LESS TV. Don't get me wrong, I support the writers but it wouldn't be so bad if we turned the TV off more. That's my thought for the day.....

What a way to start the holidays

Gretchen's foray into the hospital sent me into a bit of a tailspin. I was all ready for Christmas then her week long hospital stay threw me out of the holiday mood. However I learned a lot from our mini-crisis. I learned (though begrudingly) not to take my child's feelings personally. I learned Steve and I handle stress differently. I knew that before but I really know that now and I'm thankful for it. I got calls from people I haven't talked to in some time (maybe it will open the lines of communication for us). Some of my friends were really there for us and they made me feel thankful. The gratitude I feel for them and for the help and support they gave us has put me back in the holiday spirit! So let the holidays come! I am ready again.
