Hey, I've Got Nothing to Do Today but Smile

You'll all be happy to know that I finally had that date with my couch tonight, and it was well worth the wait. It wasn't like I didn't want to spend time with him, it was just all that other stuff that had to come first. It finally meant taking a half day off of work, to make it happen.

Normally, I get home from work at five, get a run in, make dinner, drive girls places, help with homework, and by the time I look at the clock it's almost ten. Today, I got home around 12:30, ran my eight mile route, putzed and cleaned, picked girls up, picked up dinner, dropped off girls, talked to my friend who came to get Coadster to babysit for her and looked up and it was 6:30. It was a strange feeling. The first thing I thought was, "Hellooooooo, couch."

I decided to finally catch up on my Sopranos watching, since Mr. Dateman looked kind of incredulous when I told him I hadn't seen the last couple of episodes yet. I rectified that tonight, and now all I can think is, "Jaysus!" One of the last scenes was a doozey. I am very thankful for my teeth. That's all I'm going to say. Oh, I lied. I'm also going to say that it sounded like a great idea when I told my friend to stay out as late as she wanted, and I'd pick up Coadster whenever she was ready, but now I'm tired and I may just have to lie down and wait for that call.

I'm worried about your relationship with that couch. You better slow it down before you smother it.

Sounds like a good night was had. Couch, Sopranos, and some chilling....

Unfortunately I don't have HBO anymore so I lost contact with the show. Don't tell me anything.

What a great day you had!! Here's hoping the friend found a way to return Coadster to you without dragging you from your cocoon.

Couches are surprisingly loyal. You can go for weeks, ignoring them and still they welcome you back and make you feel all sleepy and super comfortable.

I still can't believe you run eight miles before dinner. You're my hero.

I'm sooooo jealous that you're watching the Sopranos. I have to wait til DVD.

The anticipation! The agony!

The couch sounds like a good place to be.. Taoday is that day.. I did so much walking yesterday,I need new feet..

I cut off cable so my Sopranos watching of this season will be on the future via DVD, as I have caught up the last couple as well.

But so many of my fellow bloggers were freaking out after a recent episode (without spoiling it doing so), my sorry ass had to go cheat and read a recap of the episode. So I spoiled that for myself, though it will still be good to watch the episode when I get around to that one, hopefully.

Ah, a lady of leisure! Well for a few hours at least. ;-)

I know, in the words of 38 Special - hold on loosely.


I tried to be very careful not to give anything away.

Not Faint Hearted,

Thank you.

Booda Baby,

I try really hard not to take my couch for granted.


Thanks. All it means is that I have an addiction and I feed it.


If you still lived here, you could come over and watch them with me.


Can we order new feet? That would be awesome.


I knew something before it happened too. It didn't take away from the shock of seeing it happen though.


I think leisure suits me.
