A quick list of fairly random things from the week. Today's includes 3 things on my mind, in my shopping cart & on my screen.
On My Screen:
This is Us. Did you watch last week's episode? The mother/daughter one? It stopped me in my tracks as I could recognize some similarities in my relationship with my own mom, but moreso in my relationship with this girl. Why is the mother/daughter relationship so complicated? Is it because we are so similar to each other? Not sure, but I've spent more time this week praising instead of scolding. I wish I could tell you I have this one figured out, but nope, not at all.
Survivor. I realize I might still be the only one watching this, but its a show all my kids enjoy as well & I don't worry too much about the plot line going astray and having to explain things I don't want to explain right now. I don't have any favorites yet, but I can tell you that Alan has got to go. What is with the crazy eyes?!? I don't think I could sleep on that island with that guy near about. And Patrick. He had no idea that was going down and the shift in his demeanor had us all laughing.
American Housewife. My friend told me about this one a couple months ago & I finally got it recording, It's a quick 20 minutes and always has both me and my husband rolling. I think we've all had the same thoughts as her and sometimes I wish I had the guts to say them out load more often.
On My Mind:
Three thoughts I saved from the good ol' gram this week.
1. "There is no need to be perfect to inspire others...let people get inspired by how you deal with your imperfections." -- Robert Tew
2. "The people that are crazy enough to thing they can change the world are the ones who do." -- Steve Jobs
3. "Whatever you can do, or dream you can do, begin it. Boldness has genius, power, and magic in it. Begin it now." -- Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe
In My Shopping Cart:
I'm so ready for this baby to get here. Did you hear that he is already weighing in at a whopping 8lbs and I've supposedly got another 2 weeks to go before my scheduled c-section? Ugh. I'm hoping to get that moved up a week, otherwise I might be bringing home a 10lb baby. For the record, the bigger the baby the rougher that surgery becomes & I've got my fingers and toes crossed that they take that into consideration. But until then, I'm looking forward to comfy sleeps & active sneaks.
Hi, I'm Amy. When I'm not scouring the valley for the perfect new house, you can usually find me in the kitchen with a gaggle of kids. Chips, salsa and a Diet Coke are usually in hand.
