Glazed Over

May 19, 2009

So I have been watching a lot of TV lately. Like, a lot. Usually we watch The Office, 30 Rock, occasionally we throw in a How I Met Your Mother, and I love Bones (will Booth and Brennan ever declare their love for each other?). So, some TV, but not tons. In the last week, Hulu has become my close friend. So far, I have watched the Bones finale, then my mom said Castle was pretty good, so I watched 5 episodes, then Richard told me he started huluing Lie to Me, so I watched 5 episodes of that, this is on top of 3 episodes of Chuck (I still have one to go). I can’t stop. I have seen the same commercial for Intel fifty hundred million times. It doesn’t even make me smile anymore. But still, I press on.

I think I am bored. Not bored like I-don’t-have-anything-to-do bored, but like I-have-tons-of-stuff-to-do-don’t-want-to-do-it bored. The kind of blah where I feel myself slouching and think to myself, “I need to seriously work on my posture…oh well, I will start tomorrow.” Laundry-bleh. Cooking-ugh. Budget-don’t get me started. I don’t even feel like making my green smoothies (this is serious people). I think if I had a job that actually had vacation days, I would totally cash some in.

The weird part is, I totally don’t feel guilty. It has been great. My house is kinda gross, our laundry is done enough, I don’t plan on cooking this week (check out my menu plan monday- HA!). Mike keeps trying to pawn off these annoying little chores on me and I have started saying, “Um, no, can’t, don’t have time.” I am taking a time out. (I will continue to green smoothie, I do feel guilty about that.) I am enjoying cookie dough. Hanging with the kids. And that is about it.

I am sure in the next week or so, I will snap out of it, but until then, I am making sure my laptop is charged.

(As I re read this, I think it sounds like I am depressed, I promise I am not. We all know who depression hurts.)

(Also, if anyone has any show suggestions for me…bring it on.)

    I like all those shows except for Bones, I probably would like that one but I think it was not on a good night for me so I never got into it, here are some of my favorites some of them are some of my guilty little pleasures…Nip/Tuck, Dexter, Rescue Me, Burn Notice, Trust Me, Leverage, I like the new is taped kind of like the office and parks and recreations except for not funny..I also like Big Bang Theory, How I met your Mother, and surprisingly Better off Ted was pretty funny, as was In the motherhood..which you can watch on Yeah I know I watch way to much tv. but if you aren’t going to feel guilty about it neither am I. Oh and don’t even get me started on Reality Tv..

    I have only been a “stay-at-home” mom for 1 1/2 weeks now with 2 kids and have been in that funk from day one. I will never understand how moms at home stay motivated every day to get up and be productive. I have enjoyed brownies and every show I can possibly DVR, my house is filthy, I barely got the baby room done, my mom is doing my laundry… I am hanging on to the excuse that I have a newborn and will be back at work soon. But I know if never went back to work, I would have little improvement in my productivity. You are allowed to have a bad week every once in a while!!

    You gotta throw some reality shows in there….So You Think You Can Dance is about to start and it is AWESOME! 🙂

      Ugh, I can’t handle reality tv. It is so repetitious! They are always, reviewing what just happened before the commercial break and talking about what will happen in the next episode.

      • Martha Says:

        Yeah that drives me crazy I won’t watch it unless its on the forward baby

    It sounds like you have a case of summer-itis. Nothing wrong with that! Seriously, what’s so wrong with sitting around with your kids doing nothing? As long as everybody is alive, fed and (mostly) clean, eat it up while you can!
