Kristin did a bad, bad thing

I get NOTHING done on Monday nights thanks to Kristin. It's completly her fault, and none of my own. At all. I am obsessed with THE BACHELOR.... how embarrassing.

I have never had a reason to be excited for Mondays before, but now I literally count down the days until the next episode. I don't watch much tv, but I'm sad to report I plan my life around it. K talked me into watching a few episodes, and now I am caught in their web. I heard the girls on the "Good Things Utah" morning show commenting that married women seem obsessed with it. It's true! Why is that? Please tell me! I have the most fabulous husband on the planet, and all I say to him on Mondays betgween 7 and 9 is, "Can it wait until a commercial?" There is no hope for me is there?!

On to better topics... Don't you just love the Olympics! I like to watch to athletes compete, see the excited fans etc. But, the thing I turn up the volume for, are the stories of people's lives. I like to hear the story of the figure skaters that were partners, and fell in love and are now married. I like to watch Apollo Anton Ohno interact with his father- who is also his coach. I like to hear about the obstacles overcome, and watch the impossible become history. When I watch the stories and the athletes I want to get out and RUN like crazy. I find that challenging myself- in my sport of running, seems to fulfill the same need I see in those faces on tv. (Not the bachelor, the Olympics. ha ha) I believe we all have an innate need to continually challenge ourselves. Look at how you feel after you complete a run when you didn't feel like even getting up. It's good for our self esteem. Keep running, keep getting up, keep challenging yourself, keep dreaming. We may not end up in the olympics, or on the bachelor, but then again, didn't we just say how great it is when the impossible happens?

Waa haa haa! I know, it's hard to peel oneself away from the TWO HOUR episodes. Sheesh!

LOL I had to give up on the Bachelor. Too much yelling at the TV. "Stop fighting over a guy you just met" The Olympics...yep, more yelling! Love it!

So glad you stopped by my blog so I could become your newest follower. Love it!

I watched LOST on ABC.com yesterday so I could catch up for the new episode last night. Then, it brought up The Bachelor afterward, so I thought I'd give it a whirl. Then, halfway through, I realized that I didn't want to be addicted to another show, ha ha! So I stopped watching.

I have to admit to getting updates on the show from my wife and The Soup. I think this show is a good concept, but stop already with all the "I think I am falling in love" with all four girls. To me that points to the guy being disingenuous.

Great blog by the way...

I am not such a fan of the Bachelor...but admit you can get sucked in and then I think "Why the heck am I watching this crap?!" Running is going well for me...slow but well 7 miles this Saturday is the goal!

So thank goodness for DVRs--you can catch both the Bachelor and the Olympics!
