Judge Judy is the enemy.  Every day, when I come home from work, I turn on the TV, prop myself up on the couch and watch Judge Judy.  For an hour and a half.  Then it’s on to Judge Millian with the People’s Court.  Her show airs during the day but my handy, dandy TiVo makes sure she’s waiting for me after Judge Judy.  By the time I’ve passed judgement on any number of litigants, it time to move on to American Idol, or the First 48 or a whole bunch of other shows that will keep me tuned in until I’m ready for bed.  Obviously, this pattern of behavior is not conductive to evening workouts and exercise sessions.  I’ve gotta get rid of Judy……

– Wednesday update – Acckk!  See what happens when I try to be good?  I told myself I wouldn’t watch any TV except for American Idol and Glee.  Then I set to work helping Andrew with his senior project, called it a day at 8:45 and turned on the TV to find that TiVo betrayed me and didn’t record American Idol!  At least I got to see the last ten minutes with Big Mike and Krystal.  Krystal was probably the best of the evening anyway.

Kind of in a panic today.  A friend of DS’s that we’ve known since he was twelve years old has been living with his girlfriend for the past five years and they’ve decided to get married.  He came over and told DH and I that we’re the closest thing they have to parents (both raised in foster care) and they want to get married at our house.  In two weeks…Crap!  This place is a mess.  He said, and I quote, “We want someplace nice and were hoping you would let us get married here.”

Are you kidding me????  Someplace nice???  I mean, open your eyes.  This place is a wreck!  Don’t know how much blogging I’ll be doing for the next couple of weeks.  We’ve got to get the house clean, open the pool, clean and plant all the flower beds in the back yard, etc. etc. 

On the one hand, I was going to have to do all that anyway for DGS, Andrew’s graduation party but that’s not until the first of June.  This is going to force me to get on it a whole lot sooner and work a whole lot harder than I’d planned.

Housework and gardening burns tons of calories. Think of it as your exercise. Keep watching your food/diet and you’ll still be workin’ it! 😀

Here’s a suggestion for the “Judge Judy” situation…keep your remote on the treadmill. That way you have to face it if you want to watch tv. Or hide it in your workout shoes–something that makes you actively choose to watch tv instead of working out.

How neat that the kids want to get married @ your place. Yes, it will mean more work but it’s obvious that you touch people deeply. You are a special woman 🙂

Oh you are too nice- I would have either said no OR asked him to pay for you to have someone come and clean the house! lol.

Love The Judge ~ it’s the only place justice seems to be done any more.
