My kids and I came down with a nasty cold this weekend. I was able to catch up on some blogging (after almost 3 WEEKS! of not having time to think clearly, let alone blog), reading, television, etc. My husband worked on our backyard, fixing the mud problem we have, that usually helps my yellow lab disguise himself as a chocolate lab after a rain storm. It was awesome to just be able to sit down for more than 15 minutes.
It seems like the older my kids get, the more hectic our lives get. I feel like I am constantly on the go. When I get home, my house looks neglected, so I clean. Then I’ll look at the clock and realize that we’re late for something or that I didn’t even think about taking something out of the freezer for dinner and now it’s too late.
Next month is going to be even crazier. Then, summer will be here and with everything we have planned for summer, I foresee needing extra sleep now to catch up on the sleep I have yet to lose.
But for today, I am not thinking about everything that I need to do and I’m linking up with Nicole at Moments that Define Life for her Listable Life link up.
5 Reality Shows I Could (or Could Not) Be On!
I could be on:
1. The Amazing Race
I’d choose my husband to be my partner, only because I think it would make for entertaining TV. I’d probably loose my passport, my bag and about a zillion other things, but I’m sure we’d have a blast.
2. Hell’s Kitchen
It would be a guarantee that I’d get yelled at, then I’d cry. Gordon Ramsey would tell me that my Risotto is *beep* and I would loose it. I think it would be a great experience though.
3. Wife Swap.
Who wouldn’t want to swap lives with me?! I’m a Military Spouse. This life is glamourous. haha. Of course, I’d only swap when my husband was deployed, so they could get the full effect.
4. The Real World
I’d be the token crazy person complaining about the dishes. I’d be in bed by 8:30 and probably the most boring person in the history of the show.
5. Extreme Makeover: Home Edition
I would not cry if ABC wanted to build me a beautiful house. I have not been through any kind of hardship or natural disaster, so I don’t think I would quality, but still…
Reality T.V. shows I could NOT be on:
I think I’m super tough, because when my husband is away I can hold down the ‘fort’ and do it with a smile on my face, but the reality of that is, I have a phone and frequently order take-out. Take those two things away and a mental breakdown is sure to ensue.
I’ve been stranded on O’ahu before and I learned that I really don’t like being stuck on an island. I also don’t like bugs. Lose-lose for me.
2. American Idol
I’m not sure I could put myself out there like that. I can sing (granted not as well as the contestants on the show can sing), but I don’t want to be judged.
How do these people not break their necks?! Or their spines?!
It’s entertaining to watch. I would hit my head once and cry.
4. The Kardashians
I would for sure smack someone. Except Khloe, I like her.
5. The Real Housewives
I would like to go on this show as the voice of reason, but I’m sure by the end of it, it would just make me crazy.
Since nothing goes with reality TV like junk food:
Peanut Butter Crispy Bars
These were incredible and had my husband not taken them to work, I would have eaten the entire pan (because I have no self control when it comes to this stuff).
