A Day Like Many Others

Over at this blog, she shares her day's events. In lieu of my planned post for today which declares how judgmental I'm feeling lately about almost everything, I offer instead, a boring recount of my day.

6:30 p.m.: Babygirl gets a bath.
7:00 p.m.: Sit with Babygirl while she watches video. Read book, fall asleep.
8:00 p.m.: Babygirl goes to bed. Watch "Survivor."
9:00 p.m.: Watch "Apprentice."
10:00 p.m.: Write this lame blog post.
11:00 p.m.: Go to bed.

Tomorrow: Lather, rinse, repeat.

Actually, tomorrow I'm taking my mother out for dinner. My husband gave me $100 cash to spend on it, but my mother and I agreed: let's have a reasonably priced dinner, then go shopping with the rest of the money! So, that's what we'll do. We plan to have dinner at a waterfront seafood restaurant that serves the best clam chowder and fish and chips.

Boring. I warned you.

Geez! Did you even get out of bed today? It's like you didn't do anything!

My hubby called me from work the other day, and I had taken the morning to myself to play on the computer b/c my kid was at his grandma's. He had been there for two days so far. My hubby asked me what I had done so far that day, and I told him. He said, "So you've done nothing now for three days, huh?" I had worked my butt off the prior two days, and was taking advantage of my first chance to sit down! It bugs me sometimes to know that people think that if you don't get up and go away from your home for a job, then you've done nothing all day. Harrumph!

Wow!! You lead two lives for every one I lead.

I'm the one who leads a BORING LIFE. Not you :)

Ok I'm no math genius, but, um, I don't think you're getting the recommended eight hours of sleep per night. ;-)

I LOVE "The Apprentice." Who are you rooting for? I want Tana to win.

I hope Tana wins. I think it will be close. . . and last night, I got a full 8 hours of sleep. Glory be!

Okay, I'm trying my best to emulate my friend Mel -- one of these mornings I'm gonna rise up singing -- no, I mean, I'm gonna rise up and go walking. 4 miles in an hour? Isn't that pretty long and pretty fast? I'm tired just thinking about it!

Oh, and Tana - never misses a beat. But Kendra is young and has no strings attached. It's gonna be an interesting showdown.
