Sorry I've not posted much this week. I was sick on Tuesday and Wednesday (sick being completely relative to always being sick). Now I'm stressin' out over everything that has to happen this weekend: packing, moving out, painting, carpet steaming, moving back in, and getting everyone settled. It's been on the agenda for six or seven months now and the house is in chaos. But, it will all be for the best when P1 has a bed her feet don't hang off of (she's getting tall!). And, when the boys are in one room, it's my hope that the Legos won't commence a mass migration through the laundry room and into the livingroom. If I take one more 1x1 piece on a bare foot I'm going to strangle someone. I am, however, kind of curious to see how Lightning McQueen, Mater, and Doc Hudson mesh with Harry Potter, Pirates, and Star Wars?
!!I got to go out of the house last night!! P1 had a high school, GATE/AP orientation. All I have to say is, I'm so glad I am not a high school student. But, I think P1 is going to have a great, great time.
And...that leaves me with my rant for the day: reality shows. I'm tired of them. My disgust reached full tilt when I saw the preview for "Your Mama Can't Dance." The premise of the show is finding dancers and then surprising them by making them dance with their non-dancing parents. Because, "Dancing With the Stars", "America's Best Dance Crew", and "America's Got Talent" weren't enough dancing reality for one generation to suffer through? And, let's just forget that the whole formula is contrived as hell. I just have no real desire to see Mario Lopez (Slater from "Saved By The Bell") and Ian Zeiring (Steve Sanders from "90210") faux judge a dance contest. It's like someone took The Gong Show and loaded it with steroids. Or, what was that show where Adrien Zmed pranced around...*thinks*. Was that Dance Fever? I guess every generation has to have it's lame dance off show, but...one is enough. Seriously.
OH! Here is the response to the article in the Kansas City paper. Enjoy. I'll be doing a rebuttal later.
