The Biggest Disappointment

Jonathon and I love to watch "The Biggest Loser" on NBC on Tuesday nights. We always record it because I have mutual and then watch it as soon as I get home and after the kids are in bed. It's something I really look forward to. Yes, call me a nerd. But I just love being able to follow their stories and see them transform. It's really inspiring.
Before I get all comfy and sit down to watch I actually enjoy it more if the house in clean. I know, weird. But it's true, it makes a difference to me. So I made a special effort to clean the house. At least just the downstairs, so I could really enjoy myself tonight.

Well, (you may have to sit down for this) we didn't record it.

So Jonathon swoops in to save the day and find it on-line so he can download it, put it on a dvd and then enjoy our little dose of inspiration.

It took an hour and a half to download so I busied myself with finishing some other task that have needed to be done for a while. i.e. catch up on e-mails, surf the web for pictures of my dream house etc. You know the really important stuff.

It's finally done downloading. I'm so excited. (Yes, I know this is so trivial but it really doesn't take much to make me happy these days.)

Well, blow #2...whoever he downloaded it from labeled the episode wrong and we actually just downloaded LAST WEEKS EPISODE!! Ugh. Blast. Darn. Shoot. (I'm really mad it you can't tell.)

So here I sit, my house is clean (well, except for the upstairs but there's no way I have motivation to start on that!), I'm sick of looking on the internet, Jonathon is working, I just finished the book I was reading this afternoon. I'm bored. What should I do, what should I do?

I'm going to Taco Bell.

But before I go...I have to throw it a few weird random pictures because a blog post never feels complete until it's accompanied by photos. All of these pictures make me chuckle for different reasons...

Maddie took this picture. I'm lovin' my expression and how I am trying to force Lynson t take a sweet picture with his Mommy.

Again this is Maddie's doing. I let her take 3 pictures of what she thought was most important. All three pictures were of her shoes just at different angles. :)

I was trying to do a little photo shoot with Lyndon at the park a few months ago and this is what he thought about it... Yes, he's laying on the ground.

I'm not sure why I even took this picture but I found it to be a good representation of what a day in the life of the Evan's is really all about...Kids with only a diaper on and really grimy glass doors. What can I say?

Okay, that's it, wish me luck with my crunchy tacos and cheesy bean and rice burrito! :)

I am soooo sorry! I know how it feels! Last Monday we went camping and for some weird reason (I think some power outage) Chuck and Heroes didn't record! Ahhhh! I was sooo mad. I love the internet though. We were able to watch them on the computer, but it still wasn't the same as our big screen and HD! (I think I have gotten so spoiled!) Also, Mom always says that smudgy kid prints on the window mean love. I try and remember that. She didn't wash a handprint of Quincy's off her window for like a year once! Love you!

I hear ya! Somtimes (well most the time) my TV shows are all I look forward to. And if that Tevo is on the fritz...look out! I hope the video I emailed you helped to ease the pain, along with some good ol Bell. I usually load up on good snacks while watching Biggest Loser. But I'll tell you, I've been giving the rowing machine a chance since the last winner said that is what gives her awesome arms!

Don't feel too bad it was a really annoying episode - I don't want to spill anything in case you haven't watched it yet, but that Vicki lady sure drives me nuts - she is so mean! It's like her meanness has taken over the whole point of the show. Last season our dvr decided not to record the finale, I guess it was named differently - I was livid! I guess technology isn't perfect yet. :) Love your glasses!
