Refreshed for Monday

Have you ever had one of those weekends that when you start your day on Monday, you really can’t pin point what you did over the weekend?  That’s how I would describe mine.  I can’t complain because that means it wasn’t filled with any birthday parties, places to be or sickness.  It was just a good weekend.
I did successfully paint Reese’s finger nails for the first time and it lasted less than 6 hours because it came off in the bath that night, but still… super cute.

This lil’ sweetie just cracks me up! Her facial expressions are priceless.
Erik took on a project to make a magnetic chalk board for the kiddo’s to play on in their playroom!! 
Ryan was so sweet to draw a picture of his Daddy.. With what appears to be whiskers are actually his hands.

Hanging will commence once we get the playroom mapped out with where everything should go!  Stay tuned.

WorkMonday I arrive to work on today and am ready to tackle whatever comes across my desk and am hit with some crushing news.  Apparently while I was having a relaxed weekend, the networks for TV were having a pow-wow which I was totally excluded from to discuss the fate of my future time in front of the television. 

According to the World Wide Web, they are canceling 31 shows.  That is a LOT!! Not one of them was a reality show, except I think ‘America’s Next Great Restaurant’… go figure.  Of course they won’t cancel any of them because at this point, its all that is left to watch!!  I know I saw previews for the premier of Paul Riser’s new show but apparently that made the list too! Poor guy.

So, how did these 31 shows effect me you ask?  Well, for starters, I only had a total of 5 shows that I recorded on my DVR to watch:  Monday nights were filled with “THE EVENT” <—CANCELED.  Also Harry’s Law which THANK GOODNESS was not included.  I have nothing happening Tuesday or Wednesday nights other than I might catch a Law n’ Order SVU but thankfully that wasn’t snatched either.  Thursdays were also spared for Grey’s Anatomy made the cut… but now Sunday nights are 1 show short of great.  They canceled my 5th favorite show: Brother’s & Sister’s.  I am not sure if this is because Rob Lowe left to go work with Parks & Recreation which I have yet to get into.  Poor Sally Fields… I really was enjoying that.

Just breaks my heart that my 5 hours of tv which really isnt much has been reduced to 3 and Harry’s Law isn’t even on right now, so its really 2. 

This seems to be a common occurrence… just when Erik and I find a few shows that we like…. GONE.  DONE.  CANCELED!  They really should put a poll out there for people to vote instead of going off of ratings.  Its like the Gallop Poll.. WHO THE HECK are they calling? I’ve never been called or asked how I feel about things or canceling shows. 

So I’ve said goodbye to some goodies.. LipStick Jungle.. Terminator…The Event and now Brother’s & Sisters.

The only thing I have going for me is that I saw they are accepting applications for Big Brother which is my only favorite summer reality show.  BRING IT ON!

big broAnd here is my plan… I haven’t been keeping up with Two & Half Men.. but have watched it….. I plan to be a die hard fan when Ashton Kutcher starts in the new season… and its not because I LOVE ASHTON, its because I want to help prove dinglehootie Charlie Sheen that the world does continue to turn without him! 
ashton  Happy Monday!

Pin It

Your kiddo pictures are so cute! My kids would love a magnetic chalk board.

Sorry about your shows. I understand the need to escaped from reality for a few hours a week. Lucky for me I mostly watch American Idol and The Apprentice.

I am so in for 2 1/2 Men now that Ashton's on it!! I've watched nearly everything he's ever done! Hope he does well for Chuck Lorre!!

P.S. I get depressed when they cancel my fav shows, too. Then I find new ones and all is right in the world. :o)

Sorry to hear about your TV shows. I am not really a reality TV type gal but if they took off my Housewives of Orange County, I'd go into a state of depression.

Im kinda getting into Shania's show too. Have ya seen it??

I am so jealous Reese is standing like that already!! I so wanted Addison to toddle around in her tutu I made her on her birthday! Maybe I'll get lucky and she'll just take off one day soon. Not really sure why I want her to walk.. I know what happens when the walk! Guess I'm crazy : )

I was just talking to Casey about this!!! I'm so sad. I tend to like the less popular shows so it comes with the territory.

Your kids are adorable! Precious pictures!

I had no idea that so many shows were being cancelled! I may have to check to make sure the ones I want are still around. I totally agree with you on Charlie Sheen! Nothing special :)

dinglehootie - Love it! I can't stand Charlie Sheen. I don't like Ashton either so I won't be tuning in. Not that I ever have though.

My shows that got cancelled - Better With You, Law & Order LA, & Lie To Me. Sucks!! Get rid of American Idol or something!

Reese is such a cutie!!

My husband says we are the kiss of death for TV. Every time we get good and into a show, it gets cancelled!
