Busy Doing Nothing

I always feel like I have so much going on, but I'm never getting anything done.  I overwhelm myself.

I currently have two knitting projects going at once.  Which by itself is probably a bad idea because I've barely begun knitting.  Plus the local library is getting yarn bombed this month and I'd like to contribute.  I posted a photo to Instagram yesterday with some of the bombing evidence.  It's actually pretty awesome.

Year book sales are going strong, not to mention school fundraisers (clubs, classes, and a basic school one), and school photo orders are also due.  Shoo.  Plus we are now making trips to Elizabethtown (75 miles one way) every 6-8 weeks. Shoo.  Basketball practice, book club, band practice...  SHOO!!

Do you know what started this post?  TV.

I remember it wasn't too long ago that there didn't seem to be anything decent to watch.  A billion channels and nothing to watch.  Now we've got some choices.  Television is finally coming back to us.  I was already playing a Tetris like game with the shows I want to watch, but now there are more.

Tuesday nights have become family TV night.  ABC's line up is what we were looking for on Tuesday's.  Previously, we just wandered around the channel menu, playing roulette with the remote.  Now we've got these gems...

Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.
The Goldbergs
Trophy Wife
I already had Agents of SHIELD on my To Watch list.  I hadn't honestly planned on watching the other two at all.  ABC has a bad habit of cancelling shows on me.  I'm still a little weary.

HOWEVER!!!  I'm telling you now... if you need a kick of nostalgia and laughter, watch The Goldbergs.  I feel like I "grew up" in the 90's, but I have significant memories of the 80's in all it's glory and this show is great.  During the ending credits, they play some home movies of the real Goldbergs.  The actors seriously nail their real life counterparts.

I expected to not like Trophy Wife.  I was completely wrong.  It's like Modern Family with a twist.  Funny, funny, funny.  The cast is wonderful and accomplished.  Clearly I already have a favorite character, Michaela Watkins.  She reminds me of my friend Cam.  Except Cam isn't quite as Jackie as Jackie is... not yet anyway!   P.S.  She's just returned from a two year blog hiatus so stop by, pay her a visit, and say hello!

Now I never, ever, ever, ever, watch the Lifetime Channel.  That's all about to change with Witches of East End.  I hope it's like, the long cancelled, Eastwick, the ABC series based on the Witches of Eastwick.  Except I don't want it to get cancelled!

Have you watched any new shows that you were "iffy" about and discovered that you enjoyed them?


  1. Thanks for the linky love!

    I clicked on the character bio...um, are you trying to tell me I have boundaries issues? Haha! When have I ever just swam in your pool? Haha!

    1. Haha! No, no! You have to watch it! She's all yoga-y, crunchy, organic, and the like. She is a little flighty though. I said that you weren't as Jackie as she is! :)

    2. Well, we both know I can be flighty... I'm probably a flighty risk, haha! I'll give it a peek this weekend. I think the actress played the sister-in-law on Wanderlust, didn't she?

    3. Did she?! That would be awesome. She's just her own little free spirit, that's what it is. :)

  2. We are watching the Goldberg's and Trophy Wife (which we hadn't even planned to watch that one) - enjoying both quite a bit. like you I hope they don't cancel them!

    There have been several that I fell in love with and shortly after got canceled - but the one that pops in my head right now is Jane by Design, I loved that show so much and don't see why it called pulled!

    1. I've been so afraid to become invested in new shows because they cancel them before the first season is over! Sometimes I feel like they just don't give them a chance.

  3. I am really enjoying Agents of SHIELD. Haven't watched The Goldbergs, though, because I love New Girl and it's on at the same time.

    1. It's so cute and funny! If I didn't have a DVR, I'd be so lost watching some shows.
