What I did with my two days on the couch

Written by
Since I hurt my ankle Sunday and missed work Monday & Tuesday, I had some time to watch a few things on TV while I iced my foot. Several years ago I began watching different TV series start to finish in the order the episodes aired. I started with Doogie Howser and have since watched shows like Friends, Frasier, Schitt's Creek and Dawson's Creek among others. Quite a long time ago, I started The Bob…

I had a nice trip this weekend

Written by
I am such a klutz! Sunday afternoon, I went to the grocery store for the week and everything went very well. I got what I needed (except I forgot batteries) and then was going out to dinner with my mom. I got home and took my bag of stuff inside. I only had one bag. GREAT!!! Then, it was time to go back out to the car to get the milk. So I have the…

Thank you, see you next year

Even before the playoffs started I had a feeling this would be the outcome. I just didn't want to say anything and possibly jinx it. The Cavs season is over. They were eliminated from the playoffs by the New York Knicks Wednesday night with a 106-95 loss. The Knicks won the series 4 games to 1. New York will go on to play either Miami or Milwaukee in round 2. JB Bickerstaff did a good…

I am not the only I?

Written by
When I get home from work, I eat breakfast (after hopefully going to the gym) and then get ready to go to bed after a little TV. Sometimes after eating breakfast and getting interested in what I'm watching, I get quite comfortable. So much so that I will often say "screw it! I'm sleeping here on the couch!" lol. It happens more than I'd like to admit. It just feels like it's so many stairs…

Say goodbye to Netflix by mail :(

Written by
After 25 years and 5.2 billion discs later, Netflix will end its DVD movie by mail service September 29th. I have mixed feelings about this. I understand why they are making this move - most of their business is streaming and there just isn't a demand for DVDs as there once was. However, my mom was a longtime subscriber to this service only cancelling her subscription in the last couple years. Her and I used…
