i thought i would take this opportunity to talk about several things fresh on my mind at the moment.
training a husband- is this something you believe in? i was recently watching a movie in which they talked about "training" a husband to be a way in which is favorable to the wife. it definitely wasn't the first time that i had heard of this. my question to you is do you think you have done this? do you think this is possible? my initial thought would be no. no because i live with a man who after 7 years of marriage still does not put dirty clothes in the laundry, rather on the floor. i have said to him more than once that i will not do his laundry if the clothes are not put in the laundry. sadly, my tolerance for clothes on the floor is so short that i just can't follow through on my threat to him. he is not trained in the ways of smelly-stinky-clothes-that-drive-wife-to-mental-breakdown. nor is he trained to throw away his sweet n low papers that he on a daily basis prefers to leave on the microwave oven. i have begged and pleaded with this man to appease his kitchen-crazy-clean wife and just throw these tiny papers away but once again, it doesn't happen. he is not trained in the way of throw-tiny-pink-papers-that-annoy-wonderful-wife away! my final thought is no, he's not trained. maybe in the next 7 years.
reality tv- have you had enough of it yet? when will it go away? in a world in which we are all sadly entertained by the crazy realities of others, just what will make us realize we have had enough. i think it started with the reality tv show the real world. it 100% sucked you in from the get go. at first, just watching how people reacted not only to the mundane day to day but also to real life emotions of sad, mad, confused, and betrayed. eric nies only helped the show to be a success. it then progressed to the things that could make us puke- thank you fear factor! eating chocolate covered ants was high on someone's list of things to do but not mine. next enter the world of the bachelor/bachelorette. many (sadly, myself included) watched to see if total strangers, when in the 25:1 ratio, could fall in love. I knew Trista and Ryan would make it! We move into the shows like "making the band" and "american idol" when an ordinary person, who didn't get their big break on the mickey mouse club, has the chance to becoming a music superstar. finally, we enter the world of talent and dance competitions- ahhhh... 'dancing with the stars" "america's next big thing "(probably a hit thanks to the Hoff!) and "so you think you can dance." were does it end or in the words of early 90's hairband Queensryche, "or have we just begun?" where does it go from here?
and finally...why, why, why is the high waisted pant in style? i agree that i, like most other moms, are over the real low waisted jean but can't we find a happy medium somewhere between my crotch and my boobs!!
