She had to work today, so I spent the day at home.  I watched Chopped and Wicked Tuna, but the dvr messed up, so some of my other shows didn't record.

In the afternoon, I watched the rest of Iron Man 3, Thor 2 and Captain America 2.  When she got home, we stopped by the comic book store, but there was no parking, so we got some dinner at Perkins, did a little shopping at Trader Joe's, then came home and watched a little tv before bed.  Not sure what we're going to do tomorrow. Probably laundry and grocery shopping.

No trip to the doctor at least.  I did take her to work so she wouldn't have to walk much.  Hopefully she can either get in to the doctor or something to make her better.

We watched Person of Interest after ordering pizza for dinner, then we watched The Avengers, and I started Iron Man 3.  I'm catching up on all the movies so we can see the Avengers 2 in May. :)

Marathon meeting day over.

Not sure what tomorrow holds.  She hurt her knee climbing the stairs, so I don't know if I'm taking her to the dr in the morning or what.  Kind of frustrating because she's been complaining about it hurting, but wouldn't do anything about it, and now that it's in bad shape...

Guess that's what I get for marrying a stubborn woman.

The first of two days full of meetings.  I was in one meeting or another till 645 today, so dinner was just soup.  Tomorrow is another meet through lunch day, so I'll take a couple of pb&j sandwiches and let everyone watch me eat.

We just had soup for dinner, and caught up with the Duggars.  Afterwards, I watched Storage Wars and Triple D in the study.

Then it was bedtime.

Nothing exciting happened today.  We caught the season finale of Agent Carter, I watched Star Wars Rebels, and I did go to work, but it was a pretty normal day.

Sometimes normal is good.

Stayed home sick today.  Watched a few movies, but basically sat on the couch.  When she got home, we ran to the grocery store and picked up a few things, then watched Gotham and Sleepy Hollow.

Still kind of queasy, but I'll head in to work tomorrow and hopefully just take it easy.

Another stay at home day.  Although I did start the day by logging in to work and dealing with a few website upgrades.  After that was done, we pretty much watched TV and did laundry.  Much too cold to go out and do anything, so we'll have to do our shopping tomorrow and go to the movies next weekend.

It is nice to have all the laundry done, tho :)

Saturday, February 21, 2015


It was pretty much a lazy day today - she spent most of the day sleeping on the couch, so I spent the day in the office, playing on the computer and catching up on my shows.  I watched Storage Wars, Heat Seekers, Restaurant Impossible, and about a dozen episodes of Chopped.

Well, it wasn't a completely lazy day.  I did do several loads of laundry too :)

Friday, February 20, 2015


Made it up to about 20 today, although we had snow in the morning which made the drive in difficult.

The drive home after work was easy.  Stopped by Popeye's for some chicken and fixings, and watched Gotham, Sleepy Hollow, NCIS: NOLA, and Person of Interest.

That was it.

You would think that starting the day at -7 and ending at +4, it would have felt warm.  It didn't.

After work we ran to the comic book store and picked up a few things, then Arby's for dinner.

We came home and watched Building Wild, Bringing Up Bates and Cutthroat Kitchen.

Tomorrow's Friday!

Wednesday, February 18, 2015


It was -9 when I left for work, and -1 when I came home.  I thought we were done with the deep freeze, but I guess not.

I had just a simple salad for dinner, since the pizza they brought in for lunch for us didn't sit well with me.  I didn't know they were going to bring in pizza, or I wouldn't have taken a lunch.  Guess what I'm having for lunch tomorrow, though :)

We watched 3 hours of Duggars tonight.  It was a little much, but I could be distracted by playing on the laptop.  After that I watched the finale of Worst Cooks in America and went to bed.

Tuesday, February 17, 2015


It's getting colder, bleh.

We watched two episodes of CSI (Hate cliffhangers), Agent Carter, and then after she went to bed I watched NCIS LA.

Tomorrow the high is supposed to be 0.  I have to take my lunch because I have a meeting bonanza tomorrow, including the lunch hour. Not looking forward to a freezing car after work!

Monday, February 16, 2015


After work, we had to do all the shopping we didn't do over the weekend.  Trader Joe's, Target, and CVS.  When we got home, we just had soup, since I was still not feeling the greatest.  We watched two episodes of Sister Wives (well, I played around on the laptop while she watched them), then went to bed.

Tomorrow's going to be a colder day than today.  When does spring come again?

Sunday, February 15, 2015


Stayed home again today.  She hurt her knee and was having trouble walking.  I played on the computer in the morning and caught up on all my back episodes of Chopped.  Something in lunch bothered me, so I wasn't up to going anywhere the rest of the day.  We watched a couple episodes of Sex sent me to the ER, she watched Ghost Adventures, and then we watched another episode of Shield.

After that she laid down on the couch, and I went into to study to watch Wicked Tuna and rip some CDs we bought on Friday.

Hopefully I'll feel better tomorrow.  Most of my day is meetings anyway, and I'm hoping non-stress-filled.

Saturday, February 14, 2015


Today was an indoor day.  I played on the computer and watched several episodes of Chopped and Restarant Impossible.  We had chinese takeout for dinner and watched Treehouse Masters, Pioneer Woman, Sex Sent me to the ER, Hawaii 5-0, and another episode of Agents of Shield.

After she went to bed, I started watching The Special Edition of The Return of the King.  I didn't like the treatment of Saruman.  I like the book version better.

Friday, February 13, 2015



We went to the bookstore after work, and picked up a couple cds and a couple movies.  We stopped by White Castle for dinner -that was a fiasco.

We caught up on quite a few of our shows during and after dinner - Bringing Up Bates, NCIS: NOLA, Person of Interest, Elementary.

Tomorrow we were talking about going to the movies, but with it being so cold, we may just stay home, catch up on more tv, do some chores.    We'll see.  We definitely aren't going out to eat or anything like that - we'd never find a place!

Thursday, February 12, 2015


After work, guess what we did - off to the dealer to pick up my car.  Only 135, so I'm not going to complain.  Got the recall taken care of, and should be good for another few thousand miles.

We had leftovers for dinner and watched Gotham and Sleepy Hollow.  I then switched computers and watched Wicked Tuna (well, it was a clip show) and Storage Wars.

One more day of carpooling, and then a hopefully quiet weekend.  Hoping to maybe go see a couple more movies, but it's supposed to be cold again, so we may just stay inside.

We'll see.

Wednesday, February 11, 2015


After work, we went to the dealer and picked up the Element and dropped off the Insight, so they could do a recall fix, oil change, and other stuffs.  Hopefully it won't cost as much as all the repairs to the Element!

We ordered pizza for dinner because we were both tired and didn't want to cook.  We watched Agent Carter, then I watched Cutthroat Kitchen and last week's NCIS:LA.

With all the carpooling, I'm having to get up earlier than normal, which means bed earlier than normal...and I'm still drained at the end of the day.  Hopefully, I'll find some balance somewhere.

Maybe I'll win the Powerball :)

No blog update - just a comment.  I am SO tired of winter and snow.

Monday, February 9, 2015


After a pretty stressful day at work, we came right home, had a baked sweet potato for dinner and watched yesterday's recording of the Grammy's.  After that, it was right to bed.

Hopefully tomorrow won't be as stressful.

Slept in a little bit today, and played DDO after I got up and got moving.  After that I played LOTRO for a bit, till it was time to go to the movies.

We went to the Bistro theater, so we got a little dinner before the movie.  I kind of like that idea.  They come right to your seat and take your order and then bring your order to you.  The movie itself was pretty fun.  Lots of explosions tho.  Seems to be a theme these days.

After we got home we watched the last Librarians episode then headed to bed.  Have to carpool for the next couple of days, till the Element is fixed.

Saturday, February 7, 2015


The most exciting/depressing part of the day today was when the dealership called with the price tag for the repairs/

We did step out and get some groceries, and a few things from Menards.  We caught up on more tv when we got home.

But it's still annoying about the bill.  We won't get the car back till Tuesday. :(

Friday, February 6, 2015


Went to the dealership to drop off the car, and decided to go to Red Robin for dinner.  The parking lot was full.  Went to a mexican place we like.  The parking lot was full.  Tried Snuffy's Malt shop. The parking lot was full.  Drove down the street a ways to a pub we've wanted to try the food at.  The parking lot was full.  Tried Chili's.  The parking lot was full.  Tried Applebee's. Found some parking.

So, since that took so much time, we got home rather late.  We watched Treehouse Masters and Elementary, and then I just flipped channels till bedtime.

And I'm still bummed about the $245 hotel room cost.  It would have been a nice night out, but no way am I spending that much on a single night!

Thursday, February 5, 2015


Was twice as warm today when I left work.  We went to the comic book store, and then we went to Perkins for dinner (I had breakfast).  When we got home we watched Bringing up Bates and Sleepy Hollow.  Then it was pretty much bedtime.

Tomorrow we have to take the Element back to the dealer to fix an oil leak.  They're going to work on it saturday. Fun stuff.

Wednesday, February 4, 2015


Somebody left the freezer door open.  It was 8 when I left work tonight at around 6.  That's cold.  I know it's winter, but still. That's cold.

We made a pasta dish from a place we saw on Triple D, and then we watched Agent Carter, Worst Cooks, and Cutthroat Kitchen.  We watched the last little bit of the Lone Ranger before going to bed.  It's one of those movies you can jump in anywhere and know what's going on.

I'd really like it to warm up now...

Tuesday, February 3, 2015


Not much excitement today.  It snowed, we stopped by CVS for prescriptions, and Culver's for dinner.  Watched Gotham and then it was time for bed (more or less).  Ended up watching The Wolverine, even though we had intended to to go bed :)

Monday, February 2, 2015


Ended the day with a headache.  I think I'm getting what everyone else has, which is not something to look forward to.

We watched Hawaii 5-0 during dinner, then I watched Star Wars Rebels, and a couple Sex Sent me to the E.R.

I really don't want to be sick, especially since I got introduced to the next big project today, which is going to take a lot of my time and attention.

Super Sunday

Slept in a little bit, but ended up with a headache.  That's never fun.  It was cold outside today - around 15 degrees, so we stayed in.

While waiting for my friend to play DDO, i watched tv - Taco Trip, Restaurant Impossible, Chopped Canada.

After we played DDO, we worked on cleaning out the pantry a little bit.  We had some stuff from 2006 shoved way in the back.  We took a break from that and watched Daphne Dishes America Unearthed, and Elementary.  At that point it was time to start watching the game, so we did.  A couple funny commercials (the Liam Neeson one), but mostly forgettable.

After that, she went to bed, and I watched one more episode of Chopped, and called it a night.
