I think it is obvious my family loves birthdays. We have one all the time, and it is safe to say the store Party City loves us.
Sometimes we have family parties, then the kids will have a friend party, and the younger ones have school parties so we always call it our birthday week rather than just a day. This week has definitely been my birthday week. My birthday was Tuesday and we celebrated it early on Superbowl Sunday. The real birthday I feel like celebrating was also this week. I started this blog a year ago this week. My first post was on the 9th, with the second on the 11th, today.
I was scared to death to start posting. I didn't know if anyone would like it or if people would think I was crazy, I live in a small town and news travels fast, and everyone has the fear of making a fool of him/herself. I have called it cheap therapy because it is a place I can use for venting, but I also like to write about reality shows and current events. But my favorite posts are those about my family. I didn't know exactly where I going with this when I started, but it has turned out to be a great journal for my kids and nieces and nephews. I wanted a place for single moms and it has been that at times, but talking about my family is always easy.
Just as I was starting to write this, my nephew Timothy came in and asked me what I was doing. My kids and nieces and nephews get excited about seeing themselves on posts and seeing what I say about them. He saw a couple of old pictures on posts and that led us to looking at my old picture albums of relatives still with us and some who are in Heaven watching over us. Times like that are so special and it means a lot to me that he was interested in looking at them.
Times are not always easy and trying to adjust to being a single mom and all the good and bad things that go with it, I am really thankful I have this blog to get things out. Although I haven't written as many posts lately, I am anxious to get back to writing and sharing the funny, and not so funny, things that go on.
I am still watching The Bachelor, but haven't said a lot about it. I love watching it, but think it isn't there for the right purpose at all anymore. I still hope he ends up with Lindzi, he seems really protective of her, but if he keeps "skinny dipping" with Courtney I don't know if any of the other girls are going to want him. I loved how Ellen Degeneres called him out for giving her a rose when she played him.
She manipulated you to try and get that rose. She said, 'Oh, I don't know how I feel.' Then you went and got the rose and gave it to her. That was not right," DeGeneres fumed.
I also loved how Barbara Walter's talked about the show on The View. She said she knows it is an ABC show and she may get fired, but she called it "stupid". She went on to say that all these girls are after a guy that is, in her words, "less than gorgeous."
I just don't really care for the way he talks to the girls sometimes. It makes me wonder if he would be somewhat controlling and demanding.
He can be almost cruel to some of the girls and talk down to them like he is lecturing them, but then acts like a total fool when it comes to Courtney. I get it, I know he is in lust, but am I the only one who thinks of Glenn Close in Fatal Attraction when she manipulates him?
episodes and reels
I know the producers are keeping Courtney for drama reasons, but they might want to be careful.
If the other girls REALLY want to warn Ben maybe they should send him this clip from the movie Play Misty for Me.
It's just a thought.
I have this weird thing where some people look like animals to me. I know it is strange, but some, not all, people remind me of animals.
Is it just me, or does anyone else think Ben looks like a beaver?
I guess we will just have to see how it goes tomorrow! (I can't wait for the Girls Tell All episode!)
