Writings of a teachermom, choosing to stay home with her kids, while loathing all domestic responsibilities! In late Aug. 2008, I was diagnosed with Triple Negative breast cancer. After surgery, chemo and radiation, I was given theall clear. However, in the late summer of 2008, I was diagnosed with a brain tumor, which metasticized to other areas.

Boredom Buster

I’ve confessed before that although I am a Reading/Writing teacher, I do love my TV. After my Desperate Housewives, Grey’s Anatomy and Apprentice ended, I felt a strange void. The kids would be in bed, and I found myself so bored, that I even resorted to cleaning up the kitchen. I know I should have taken advantage of the forced cease of my addiction by actually reading some of the book son my Want to Read shelf, or finish some of the educational journals I had started, or logging in some extra miles on the treadmill. Should is the key word here.

But I can now say with enthusiasm that I have a new show to look forward to. Fellow blogger A little leeway has tried to encourage me to watch Project Runway, but I never could remember which station was Bravo. But while on vacation, I happened upon a marathon of last season’s Project Runway. Now there’s how to watch a show…all in one day. I only picked up on the last three, but it was enough to get me hooked. Fashion, drama, odd individuals, beautiful clothes, unique challenges, deadlines, etc. And following the repeat of last year’s episodes was the beginning of this new season. What an assortment of individuals.

Wednesday evenings I now have a date with the TV. It’s not too late to join me on this mindless pursuit of entertainment.

Oh, sorry! kc also encouraged me to watch!!!!

I almost cried with Milan when he was kicked off last night. Sure his dress was UGLY, but still. With the story of his mom throwing his sketches on the ground....how could one reject him again! I fear he'll commit suicide or something!

I'm right there with you!! My DVR tapes every new episode of the show so I can enjoy it at MY leisure, since my kids aren't always cooperative at bedtime. *lol*

Another absolute fav of mine is Miami Ink...hot men, hot tattoos, heart-warming stories behind those tattoos, and a little bit of drama to boot!! Gotta love it! It's on Tuesdays at 9pm on TLC.
