Hooray! It’s Friday; the most deliciously awesome day of the week! Almost all of my immediate family will be here for this three-day weekend and I’m super excited. Tonight, friends are coming over for a game night and we’ll most likely laugh ourselves silly playing Cards Against Humanity, The Game of Things, and Quelf. (These are quite possibly the three best games ever invented if you’re looking for some game night fun for the adult crowd).
We’re ordering pizza for tonight (now a rarity in our home) and I’ve saved up calories to get a child-sized pizza, with very little cheese, just for me. (Woo Hoo!) We’ll have other healthy snacks; veggies, fruit, popcorn, and plenty of flavored seltzer water. It’s going to be a great evening!
In other rambling news, a huge tree fell on my husband’s car while he was driving home from work yesterday. Thankfully, he was thinking fast and was able to gun the gas pedal and get out from under it before it made full impact. Unfortunately, it made enough impact to dent the frame by the driver’s side and scratch things up here and there. I could absolutely care less about the car and was just so thankful that my husband arrived home safely. I couldn’t stop hugging him last night and can’t wait for him to get home this evening safely.
Speaking of last night… I was exhausted from my week of exercise, so I spent the evening resting
my screamingly tight muscles and catching up on my trash television. I’m not as much of a TV watcher as I used to be, but when I watch I like to fill my brain with the worst garbage out there. (Better than filling my stomach with garbage like I used to!) Right now, my number one guilty trash TV pleasure is TLC’s Gypsy Sisters. This show has it all; a family of wild, Romanichal (Rumney [sic]) Gypsy women who sometimes drink, have crazy fights, and get into all kinds of mischief that I’d never dream of getting into. The most appealing part of this show is that it’s filmed all around the area that I live in. It’s pretty wild to turn on a major cable network and see all of your own familiar places. We occasionally see these women when we’re out shopping. I even got to witness them going off on the manager at our local Michael’s Arts and Crafts store, because he wouldn’t give them cash for a “return (?)” that they brought in without a receipt. I’ve never approached them. Remember that girl in school who would kick your ass if you looked at her funny? I’m pretty sure these women were that girl! I don’t know what it is about my own personal make up that makes trash television so appealing to me. Perhaps it’s watching people do things that I’d never do, but I sure do love it, and Gypsy Sisters totally meets all of my trash TV needs!
That’s what’s been going on in my world; what are your weekend plans? I hope you have a great one! 🙂
