I will not be revealing any sort of exciting news in this entry. I don't have any.
Phew. Now that your hopes are dashed, I can continue. News. More specifically, the news. I don't watch it. I hate it. Sometimes I read it. I have a handy dandy ABC News app on my phone that sometimes I'll glance at. I did yesterday. And I learned that a 9 year old in Mexico gave birth to her first baby, fathered by a 17 year old. I got sick to my stomach and lost even more faith in humanity. This is the kind of thing that's news. I'm tired of tragedy. While I get that life can't always be sunshine and roses, couldn't there be something good worth reporting out there? Like even one story a day? Or even one newscast a day?
There's this lady in my life (I'm not mentioning any names, here, but she gave birth to my husband) who spends her days watching CBS news. Morning. Noon. 4:00. 5:00. 10:00. She doesn't miss it. And then she watches other informative shows like Dr. Oz and The Doctors. And life is one big conspiracy theory in her eyes. We're all going to die. There's arsenic in brown rice. When you surround yourself with negativity, it's all you begin to believe. Again, I'm not asking for puppies and rainbows all day every day, but how about some good stuff?
I prefer TMZ to the real stuff. At least celebrities and their gossip are entertaining. Does this make me ignorant? Maybe. I can research anything that I really need to know.
So...what do I watch you might ask? Well...between the hours of 6 a.m. and 8 p.m., the answer is not much. H enjoys a little Full House, and old school cartoons from the 30s. (Check them out on Netflix - Cartoons That Time Forgot. They're awesome.) L doesn't watch much t.v., as she'd rather play, but when she sits down, it's for Cookie Monster, Elmo, Mickey, and any princess she can recognize.

But he's wearing a cardigan. And I LOVE a cardigan.
