I am out for awhile...

As much as I love my blog and as much as I love my blogger peeps, I need another break.  I am having a difficult time these days and I need to step back and get my shit together.  I am not being a very good mom and when it comes right down to it, that is the most important thing that I do.  I love you all and hope that I will be back very soon....

My Work and Week

As many of you know I am a preschool teacher.  I used to teach Elementary school but when the children came along the hours of preschool worked better with their schedule.  Plus, I brought much less work home.  This year I am working 5 days a week with 2 different two year old classes.  I have a Monday/Wednesday/Friday class and a Tuesday/Thursday class.  For most this is their first school experience and the last week has been a little stressful, to say the least.  I have a few screamers who literally cry the entire 4 hours (9-1) that they are with me.  I am trying to laugh and trying to stay positive but it has been a hard start to the school year. 

Then to top everything off, I got my bridesmaids dress yesterday in the mail (oh yeah my husband's sister is getting married in 2 weeks).  It's a size 16!  A size 16!  Now on a big day I am an 8.  I know I bitch about my weight (a lot) but this is only because I was a size 2 (or 0) in college (don't ask) and I miss that body sometimes.  But I am not a 16!  The problem I have with this is that I have to get this dress altered before the wedding and it is falling off of me.  So the dress is enormous and I look like a gold tomato. 

Yeah I might start drinking on Tuesdays.  

"Maybe its a Spaceship" on The Bachelor Pad

OK, I know I laugh at this show every week, yet I continue to watch.  Deal with it!  The stupidity of the show takes me away from life's little realities.  The Bachelor Pad has become a joke and I cannot turn away.  So this week the group was narrowed down to the final 3 couples but before this happened, here are the high points.
  •  Chris Harrison walks in and says that 3 girls are going home immediately.  After a stupid game of spin the bottle, we say farewell to Nikki, Gwen and the other girl.  Did anyone actually think that Kiptyn or Kovacs had the balls to not pick Tenley or Elizabeth?  
  • Next up a super fun (so much sarcasm here) game of catch with water balloons.  The minute that Jesse and Peyton lost we all knew that they were going home.  They were not part of the cool kids and should have known that this was the end.  But, ABC had to fill another hour so...
  • Natalie and Dave won the balloon toss and got the date.  When the clue came and it said a "night under the stars" no lie one of the brilliant girls stated, "maybe you are going on a spaceship". Well sweetie with ABC anything is possible.  
  • No spaceship, just a Lamborghini and a night at a house with a hot tub for Natalie and Dave.  Wow that's different.  
  • To get some alone time Elizabeth and Kovacs snuck into the fantasy suite.  They did the deed, and then Elizabeth got the guilts.  So a fight ensued about how Kovacs made no effort with her.  Now I am just guessing but if the guy gets what he wants in the fantasy suite without much efforts, why is that going to change?  
  • Meanwhile Jesse and Peyton are trying to save themselves.  Talking with Natalie and Tenley we are led to believe that there might be a chance but no ABC is just filling space.  
  • After the rose ceremony we say so long to Jesse and Peyton.  Our final 3 couples are Elizabeth and Kovacs, Tenley and Kiptyn and Natalie and Dave.  Wow the cool kids win again.  
The sheer stupidity of the girls on this show is unbelievable.  Not only that but can someone please inform these girls that sex and hooking up does not equal a relationship.  Oh its fun but it is not going to be long-term.  Next week is the finale' and it will be interesting to see who wins the money.  We all know that no love connection has been made, right?

Project Runway - Is anyone else feeling used...

After watching Project Runway last night, I was left with this floopy feeling.  Maybe it was manipulation, maybe it was lies or maybe, just maybe it was fancy editing and a wish that all people watching the show are just that gullible.  We have established that Gretchen is a bitch (and if Tim Gunn says it, it must be true).  We have also established that Ivy is the flying monkey to her wicked witch.  However, when did Michael C become the underdog (or the sentimental favorite).  Don't get me wrong, I like the guy (much more so than Gretchen and Ivy for sure) but he is no Suede or Kayne.  I will say that after all the smack talk about him last night, it was nice to see everyone's faces when he announced he won.  Gretchen looked like she swallowed a fish head.  I just have to wonder about the judges and their over exuberance for Michael C.  Gotta admit, I liked Mondo's dress better (or do I just like saying his name).  This season seems to be heading into a tailspin and I am not sure what happens next.  Maybe that was the plan all along.  Something to ponder for sure.  On another note, I was sad to see Peach go.  I think that she and I could be friends, she reminded me of many of my old sorority sisters.

At least Project Runway is holding my attention which is more than I can say for Top Chef right now.  So the producers are smart and I am gullible.....later all.

Top Chef - a little surprising

I was not expecting Tiffany to get sent home last night.  She has been so strong, especially in the last few weeks, and I felt like they would have taken that into consideration before sending her home.  And to see how shocked everyone was, was a testament to how good she was.  This entire season has been a little dull admittedly and now without the hope of Tiffany winning (and we long ago lost the showdown between Kenny and Angelo) I am pulling for Kevin (of course).  I know this is a longshot because based on everything I have read, he will be the next to leave.  But if Angelo wins (and he will) I will be disappointed.  Did anyone else hear him discuss how he made love to his dish last night.  Just a weirdo people, just a weirdo....
