Thursdays are one of my favorite days of the week. It's almost the end of the week, there's anticipation of Friday and the coming weekend, and there's awesome tv on Thursday nights. Oh, and it's our more casual dress day at work...that helps too.
Speaking of tv, I have a confession to make...I don't watch American Idol or Lost. Like, not at all, ever. My top Thursday night shows are Bones, Grey's Anatomy, and The Office (which I usually watch online over the weekend). But, yeah, I'm missing out on those two pop-culture phenomenons. AI just isn't my thing...I don't care for reality tv in general. I hear good things about Lost, and I know it has quite a following. I didn't watch it when it first came on, then I felt like it was too much trouble to try and catch up. Once this last season is over, I'm thinking I might watch the entire series from the beginning on DVD. Of course, that means I will have to avoid spoiler-type talk about the ending, but I think I can do it. Do you watch Lost? Would you recommend it for my summertime tv-on-DVD obsession?
We don't have any big plans for the weekend, other than to continue getting things in order around the house. I'm looking forward to making some progress while Jeremy is home to entertain the babies. So far, I'm doing better at keeping the house picked up and keeping up with the laundry, dishes, etc. It's a job just to keep up with that during the week though, so I haven't gotten a whole lot of organizing/unpacking done. Instead of letting our laundry pile up until I have nothing left to wear and then having a massive washing/drying/folding party, I've come to the realization that if I just do one load of laundry each weeknight I can stay caught up. Imagine that! ONE load is not overwhelming, I can easily toss it in before I fix my supper, then fold and put away right before bed. Now, if I can just make myself stick with it...
For the last bit of randomness on this Thursday night, I wanted to pass along two posts that have made me both laugh and cry this week. This one, from one of my favorite blogs, made me a little-misty-eyed, but in a good way. This post is of a different variety than the first, but it is absolutely one of the most beautiful, heartbreaking, and emotional stories I have ever read. Don't forget the kleenex.
