The View from the Couch

I had a very exciting day today, and by “exciting”, I mean the opposite of that. I woke up, got Moon off to school, then shivered on the couch for an hour listening to it rain outside. I was trying to work up a good excuse for skipping my Monday morning prayer group. You know that saying, “the spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak”? That pretty much sums up my life. Luckily, the women I meet with came up with an excuse FIRST, so I was off the hook.

I spent the next two hours working on my laptop while watching Pride and Prejudice. Again. I may have seen it a few dozen times, but what can I say? Mr. Darcy has bewitched me body and soul, and I…love him and wish never to be parted from him from this day on.

I may have a problem.

After I finished my work, and my movie, I decided to brave the rain and do a little shopping. I bought three Christmas gifts for about 8 dollars total, but it’s the thought that counts, right? I’m pretty sure the gifts will go over well, despite the cheap price tag. Two words – Star. Wars. If you think I’ve seen P & P a bunch, it pales in comparison to how many times JD has seen ALL SIX Star Wars movies.

My husband may have a problem.

I was in my fourth store when I began to think, “I wonder if anyone realizes I’m shopping in my pj’s?” When you’re wearing a heavy coat, you don’t really NEED to wear a bra, amiright? And who can tell the difference between fleece pajama pants, and plain fleece pants? No one!

I came home just in time to help Moon with her schoolwork, tell JD what to cook for dinner, and settle back down on the couch for a few more hours on the laptop. It’s nice to sit and work, while the family watches television together. Moon is on episode 228 of the Andy Griffith Show. Another week or so and she will have seen them all.

My daughter may have a problem.

Let’s see, I’ve watched approximately 78 hours of Pride and Prejudice, JD has seen at LEAST 120 hours of Star Wars, and Moon has logged 114 hours of Andy Griffith. That is AWESOME. Team Tyre loves the classics!

I’ve got no problem with that.

  1. I once spent 8 hours watching the movie “The Blues Brothers”. Of course, that was at a theater, and the 8 hours were all in a row as we sat through 4 consecutive showings.

    I may have had some problems…
