I am a medical marvel. Not only did I play tennis on Saturday, but I hit the courts again on Sunday for a 2.5 hour, 3 set win! The fact that I am still walking is probably a miracle. Or I’m hopped up on screwdrivers and ibuprofen, whichever. Normally I’d be complaining to JD until he broke down and massaged my neck and shoulders, but he decided to one-up me by helping my brother move three truck loads of furniture, blah, blah, blah! Doesn’t anyone care about MY needs?

Besides playing tennis, I spent the weekend cleaning my house. I didn’t spend a LOT of time, why bother when I’ll just have to do it again, but I did make a gesture. My mom and Aunt Fay are coming on Wednesday and I didn’t want them to be bored so I left them a few things to do. Number one is: CLEAN THE HOUSE. The second one is WORK IN THE YARD. They have years of experience between them so I’m expecting big things.

March has been a busy month and as it comes to an end, I have big decisions to make. Mainly whether to keep cable, go to Direct TV, or just chuck the whole thing and get an antenna. That last one makes me feel a little bit like the Amish except that I think they forgo electricity completely so never mind. Still, an antenna? Why don’t we just throw away the remote and start getting up to turn the TV channel like pioneers? The thought of not having access to On Demand is a little bit terrifying. What if I get behind and I don’t know what’s happening on Duck Dynasty or Dancing with the Stars?

Speaking of Dancing with the Stars, I watched it for the first time in forever and one of the couples danced to Timber and now I can’t get it out of my head. Then I read this:

There are few things more frustrating than being unable to dislodge a catchy tune from your head all day.

But now psychologists have come up with an explanation for why certain songs can get stuck in your brain like a broken record.

Word memory association, situations of stress, a wandering mind and altered emotional states can all be blamed for the phenomenon, psychologist Dr Lauren Stewart said.

Yeah, that sounds about right. Just as I got the tune from Dancing with the Stars out of my mind, I find this:

My worlds have collided! What’s next, a song featuring the cast of Scandal with the cast of Being Human? Dallas and Revenge? Once Upon a Time and Grey’s Anatomy?

I’m going to go ahead and take antenna off the table.

One thought on “Timber

  1. I think that I have a lot more hours in yard sales and watching TV than I have in yard work and house cleaning so don’t be disappointed when you return, just saying.
