Scatterbrained and bored

It's been a pretty boring weekend so far so I don't have much to blog about. The weather today was horrible with snow and some super strong wind. Even Tank didn't want to be out any longer than he had to be. I spent my day sewing and playing with Oliver which wasn't all that much fun because he was in a bad mood. And now... now I sit here involuntarily watching baseball which is one of my least favorite things to do. It's the lead up to the world series so I won't make too much of a fuss. It's almost over. Nick just said Game 7 of the World Series is scheduled for November 7th. I can last that long I think.

On a totally unrelated note.....There was some very disturbing stories on the news about children lately. There was that 6 year old who was in the hot air balloon that got loose and flew 50 miles. They are saying now that it was a hoax but I was still very upset for that family when heard it. Then there is the horrible story of a mother who lost her baby stroller on a train platform. The 6 month old baby ended up run over by the train and was dragged for several meters and it was all caught on security video. Luckily the 6 month old was fine except a bump on it's head (a miracle) but the video was enough to make me sick to my stomach. At the risk of of sounding like Brian on that episode of 'Family Guy', now that I'm a mom things like that really affect me in a way they never did before. I feel literal panic when I think of O being in the same situations. Kids really do change your life.

Again unrelated.... Have you heard that ABC is bringing back the series 'V'? I'm so excited. I loved it when I was a kid (miniseries 1983 and 84 and the show 1984-85) and I'm looking forward to watching the remake. I don't think it will live up to my memory of it but I'm hoping for the best. It premiers November 3rd if you're interested.

So this ends an extremely incoherent and scattered post. Thanks for sticking with me and I hope that I'm back up to par in the next one. I hope everyone is having a good weekend.

V? really? i remember that from when i was a kid too but perhaps my memories are not as positive as yours...i definitely wasn't old enough and i walked into the room when the scene on the screen was a guy pulling off his face. imagine the nightmares for a 6 year old! i must say, though, i am excited to hear about a re-make...these days it seems to be more up-my-alley!

Yeah, I can see that being pretty tramatic for a 6 year old. And the eating mice thing too. I was 12 I think when I first saw it... I never saw the original miniseries till I was a little older but I loved the tv show.

When I was on holidays this year I purchased the origional mini-series. Haven't watched it yet but maybe that will happen this week.

Well I have never heard of that show at all!

You are right about having kids changing your view. Most news stories involving kids I pass up on reading. I get so emotional about that stuff now!
