I am not watching the Superbowl due to my football “boycott”. This is the first time in over a decade I won’t be watching the big game. I can’t believe I actually didn’t watch football all season! There were some college football games I REALLY wanted to watch. My football boycott will continue next season. Nothing has changed. Players are still getting hurt for entertainment purposes. I’m not talking about just broken legs. I’m talking about broken minds also. Eventually more people may quit watching. Boxing, anyone?
I have hot water as of right now. I don’t think the cold water is working yet…Woot! Woot! 😉
Music for the week: A Great Big World, Jillette Johnson, Jennifer Nettles, Britney Spears, Julie Roberts, Nelly Furtado, Beyonce, Elle Varner
Ugh. My music listening has been stagnant as of late. I’ve been listening to the same music for the past month. I do love A Great Big World though…I need to switch it up a little
TV for the week: basketball, Sister Wives (I shouldn’t have gone to the message boards but I was curious about what people thought of the show. Only one thing worth mentioning stood out: people were saying how unhappy/depressed the wives seemed. My thought is, how are they any different from a monogamous couple? Do these people know a bunch of happy married people? The wives seem pretty normal to me. Marriage is hard – polygamous or monogamous. Life is hard. Blah. I love how well adjusted the kids seem).
Edited to add: Just in case it isn’t obvious, I’m only talking about the women on the TV show “Sister Wives”, NOT any kind of abusive polygamy. (Warren Jeffs etc.)
Movies of the week: Mitt (I’m not sure why this documentary wasn’t better. Is it because Mitt Romney isn’t charismatic? Or was it the director? It was semi-interesting). First Comes Love (The birthing scene was beyond too graphic. I tried to watch but had to turn away. TMI! But otherwise it was a good documentary. I know it was good because I could have read it and enjoyed it just as much. I love Amy and Nina).
Book of the week: The Witness Wore Red: The 19th Wife Who Brought Polygamous Cult Leaders to Justice by Rebecca Musser Money: A Love Story: Untangle Your Financial Woes and Create the Life You Really Want by Kate Northrup
Goals for next week: I’m focusing on school and studying for the boards. I’m now thinking about taking the boards in June or July just to get a feel for it. School will be done May 4th. Is June too soon? I have no idea. I just don’t like the thought of waiting to take it until September. With too much time, I might get antsy. Then I can take it again a few months later. (I get two chances for one payment).
I have my first one on one with my manager. I’m not looking forward to talking. (wow, really?) We have never spoken. And I have nothing to say or ask. That shouldn’t be awkward.
I need to clean the kitchen….and the whole house. It is chaotic. Books are everywhere!
My mom gave me her old printer. Yay!! She has a much cooler, new one. I have never had a wireless printer before. I hope setting it up won’t be a bitch. I shall attempt to set it up now…….
