I've always been a straight shooter with you folks, and you're surprisingly still around. So now would not be a time to wax poetically about all the things I've been busy doing, as if I'm saving the world like the Jolie-Pitts. No friends, I have been busy with laundry and stuff. Don't get me wrong, I could come up with some mighty fine reasons for not blogging, but because I love you, I will spare you the b.s. Yes, you are welcome.
Here is the real reason. I was forced to get a land line, you know a phone besides my cell phone....I know. Well since I already have the Internets, it's almost cheaper to get the triple threat and get cable too. For those of you who may not know, I have not had cable for some time. And yes, my children and I have survived. We have gone idol-less, debate-less, reality show-less and Sponge Bob-less for many moons. I wish we were still Sponge Bob-less.
Honestly, there is some weird crap on television, and I have been watching all of it. Babies Behind Bars, My Strange Addiction, Dance Moms, you name it, I'm like a deer in the headlights, mouthing the words, "really?” I have thought about canceling several times, but I think my kids would now go through withdrawals and there are some things I just choose not to deal with in this lifetime, and right now that is one of them.
Now, I don't watch the entire freak show, just bits and pieces and go about my business, however, there is one show I cannot turn away from...Hoarders. If you're not familiar with this show, there are about eleventy different versions on television and all of them reel me in and I'm mesmerized. I don't know why, but it's like crack. The first hit gives you a buzz and you're chasing it thereafter.
|This is nothing people|
Now my point, Hoarders isn't just on for an hour, no, no, friends. Hoarders is shown in blocks, that is, 4-99 episodes in a ROW!!! So you can see why I haven't blogged, because I'm basically watching Hoarders. I am not a hoarder, nor am I a clean freak. I'm your mediocre, almost-middle-aged-smokin'-hot-Mama looking into the secret life of another person.
So stay tuned, I have some fun things coming up....including a twist on the A-Z Challenge. If you were in my A-Z posse last year, I'm calling you back.
I might have been watching Downton Abbey too.
