Life and television catch up...

I know, I know. Bad blogger!

Life has just been crazy and my mind is somewhere else. Hopefully I can get back in the swing of things soon... hopefully.

Yesterday was a good day though. My bestest (guy) friend and I went for a walk and let me tell you, it took its toll on me! Because of my back I have been so out of shape. So after our 6 mile walk - which turned into a hike at one point - I woke up this morning barely able to move my back, hips, and knees. The downside of being a 23 year old in a 50 year old's body!

We walked down next to the bridge to enjoy the moment.
Well, enjoy it as good as I could since he was jokingly going to push me in the river!

Even though I've been mentally somewhere else, I've still been enjoying my trash TV though!

It was a good season premier but I was a little disappointed. So much happened in just one episode! A hurricane came and left, Denise went into a coma and came out of it, Fort Marshall isn't closing anymore... I just thought it was a little much. Then again, it was a 2-hour premier so I suppose they did what they had to.

Maybe it's just me but I am SO tired of one new episode then reruns for 3 weeks. It's quite annoying wanting to see what happens next and having to wait weeks to know.

This is one new show that I am highly addicted to. If you haven't seen it, I recommend you do. Here is the plot via IMDb:

"For the longest time, ever since the prison facility closed down and the remaining hard-core loner prisoners had been evacuated in a final transport, none of the visitors of the small island of Alcatraz seemed to give a thought to their common final fate.

Suddenly, the fog around these criminals is being pierced. One by one, another specialized law-violator with a purpose is being seen in present-day San Francisco, where the newly recruited partnership of a dedicated law officer with an unusually skilled Alcatraz savant faces a plate full of secrets, violence, previously unknown scientific occurrences and interrelated, deep-rooted grudges by police, guards & criminals alike."

The show keeps you on the edge of your seat the whole time and keeps you interested. Plus, it makes me want to fly to SF to visit The Rock!

What the heck?! Abby barely yelled at them this week. You know that's why people watch the show... who wouldn't want to see her yell at little kids and make them cry? I was shocked at the costume choice this week which made me think that they wouldn't win. And guess what, they didn't. That's going a little too far, Abby!

Um, holy crapola! I don't want to give away too much since a lot of you may have DVR'd it and will watch it tonight but oh my gosh. And the ending - what happened with Clay and with Brooke - killed me!

Sons of Guns was also on last night but I didn't have a chance to watch the whole thing... I have to finish it tonight so I can see the integrally suppressed .50 cal completed. 

Tonight I am finally - after 7 months of having to do laundry at my parents house - getting a new washer and dryer! The ones we had broke last August when our basement flooded from the hurricane. It will be so nice to not have to lug our laundry here and there!

So that's been my life, for the most part, this week. Today I am stuck at work but I have the windows open enjoying the 60-degree weather (with a high of 70 today!!!!)

Hello, spring!

Alcatraz is our new favorite show this season! We are totally addicted, but it is driving me crazy like LOST did!

Omg OTH is the only show I really watch. I can't believe it's almost over :( Last night was crazyyyyyyy!

I am totally obsessed with Dance Moms! You're right about their costumes. The dance was good but the costumes, totally inappropriate.

OTH Is the only one of those shows I watch too. But I DVR'ed it- can't wait to catch up tonight- hear it was ridiculous!!

Hope you feel better soon! Hopefully this warm weather will at least help keep your spirit up!

I've been kind of sick of Army Wives the last couple seasons, but I still can't stop watching a show I've been watching since the beginning. But I have to say I was surprised. A lot DID happen, but I loved all the Jeremy stuff. But it made me sad at the same time!

I wanted to watch Alcatraz but we were in the middle of moving so I didn't get to see the beginning episodes. I'll look online and see if I can find them.

Have you started watching Awake? I really like that show so far!

My fave of these is Two Broke Girls. It should be called Two Hilarious Girls.

We love watching Alcatraz! We always have such a hard time waiting the whole week till the next episode. It's sooo good! I've been been to Alcatraz but it definitely makes me want to go again. I've seen Sons of Guns once and it was pretty good.
