Our favorite show

B and I love the show the Voice.  We plan our Mondays and Tuesdays around it and make sure that it gets DVR'd just in case something makes us miss it and for the nights that B is working.  Of course, when he misses it for work, he has to watch it the next morning before he goes to sleep!

It's probably one of the few shows on TV that we both love.  Baseball season started today and he'll be holed up in his man cave most evenings watching games.  But when the Voice is on, we share the couch and watch together.

I found myself giving singing advice to one of my nieces this weekend.  And I wasn't even sure were the advice had come from.  B piped up from across the room, "you heard that on the Voice."  So, I guess this makes us super fans.  We plan our evenings around the show, quote it, DVR it.  Sad to say, neither of us can really carry a tune in a bucket, but we always have something to say about the contestants!

It's almost time for the tonight;s show and both of us have been rushing around trying to get everything done so we can just relax and enjoy!

Where is Spring?

Last week, on the first day of Spring, we shoveled snow.  Over a month ago, a great friend of mine and I planned a shopping trip to a local outlet mall.  It should have been in the 40's/50's because it normally is this time of year.  It wasn't.  Oh no, we had low 30's and snow and we went anyway, because this is the winter that isn't going to quit.  And I know it's not going to quit, because we are expecting...you guessed it...more snow this week! 

I'm trying everything I know to get myself in a Spring frame of mind.  I've put away every snowman or winter type of decoration.  I wore a mint green sweater today and tried to look springy.  I made my desktop background on my work computer a lovely photo of a warm tropical place.  I'm going to go eat an ice cream in a minute.

I don't think any one of these things is going to make a difference - in the weather  or my state of mind!  So old man winter, keep giving me what you got.  I can take it.  It will just make me appreciate those 2 weeks of summer we'll have in mid-July!

Sitting in the Dark

I'm sitting here in the dark, watching Survivor and listening to the freezing rain hit the windows.  Yes, it is another stormy night and I'm about done with this winter.  B is in Florida visiting with his mom and enjoying the sunshine and a few spring training baseball games.  He's heading back on Friday, just in time for the sleet, freezing rain, and snow to be done. 

We were sent home early today, so I used my time wisely and cleaned a bathroom, ha ha.  We were told to bring work home, so I'm hoping for a day of working in my pjs from the couch.  Whether I have to go in to work or not, at some point I'm going to have to go out and clean off the deck, steps and around my vehicle.  Not really looking forward to that part - but a girl's got to do, what a girl's got to do!

Hoping that this is the last snow of the season, but something tells me old man winter isn't done with us yet.

Where did that come from?

So, I was just checking my stats for this blog and there were 130 hits yesterday.  What???  The most I've ever had is 20.  Who knows who you are or how you found this, but welcome and thanks for checking this little blog out. 

Writing on here helps me clear my head, it's like a road map of my life for the past few years.  Nothing too exciting, but it's my reality.  I'm a simple gal, not a lot of wants or needs (ok, B may not agree with that statement!).  Love my husband and the life we live.  Moved away from everything I'd known at the age of 40 and miss my mom and family every day.

Gotta go, Criminal Minds is on and I can't seem to stop watching!

What I love about Sundays

Today has been a wonderful, restful day.  We slept in, had breakfast in bed and caught up on the 2 episodes of the Voice that we missed last week. I'm still in my pjs, watching a Hallmark Channel movie. I've eaten chips and an ice cream sandwich and B is taking me to supper when I say the word.  He's been doing laundry and I've been playing Candy Crush.   Yes, it's been a great day so far.

My only regret is not getting to church.  It's one of those things I'm going to add to yesterday's post's list, a better church life.

Other than that, Sunday has been a fun day!

It's March 1st already!  This year is flying by and I'm not sure what I've been doing?  Working, sleeping, eating.  But I've been trying to think if I've done anything else.  I've read 2 books and I'm starting a 3rd.  I've been snowshoeing twice.  I helped friends paint today.  I've visited my family.

I don't want to waste my 50th year.  I need to do stuff and I need to get moving on it. I have less than 7 months left in this big year to accomplish this stuff.  If you have any ideas, please let me know.  In the meantime I'm going to work on a list that's going to include hiking and biking and getting healthier.  Painting a couple rooms, planting flowers in the spring and visiting some new spots in Maine are also going to be must-dos.
