TV night...

Okay, I am boycotting American Idol but I did watch it last night with my husband (that's an hour of my life I won't get back). But I tell him that I am not 'invested' anymore. Just don't care who wins. I honestly think that America should not be able to vote. It isn't a talent contest when they do. Case in point: Chris Daughtry. I should let this go - I am sure he has. :) Case in point #2: Jason Castro is still on there. What a train wreck that was last night. He is becoming a joke in our house (can you say Sanjaya?). And he always says "I don't know many of _______'s songs" Tonight it was the whole bloomin' rock'n roll category. What, I ask, does he know?? I saw Carly clapping for him last night and I know she was thinking 'I should be up there instead of you buddy'. I know I was thinking that. I thought the others were pretty good last night. We had some kind of audio problem though - you really couldn't hear the music, just the vocals. Wierd.




On to something slightly more important. I got a new skillet. I have been looking for a new one for a while. This is the 4th one I have had since we got married (10 years). I think that's alot. Shouldn't they last a LONG time? Especially given what the cost. All my others have been non-stick and the coating just doesn't last. It might just be me but I decided to try a stainless one and see if it helps. So we were in CA last weekend and I spotted the 'Summer cookware sale' sign at Sur la table and figured it wouldn't hurt to look there. Right there at the front door was this beauty. I got the 12 inch one so the lid I already have will fit. Plus it's a good size for us. I haven't used it yet but plan to use it tonight. I hope
I can keep it looking pretty. But most of all I hope that I can cook with it!
I got a call from one of the moms in my daugther's class asking if I had an idea for a group gift for the teacher for the end of the year. Something the kids could all sign or something. So I am brainstorming today since I really had nothing for her last night. I am doing a small scrapbook for the teacher so I don't think we can use that idea again. I have seen these pictures at Staples that have a photo in the middle and then a border where you can sign around the edge. I thought that might be good. I know she has more 'tchochke' than she needs. Don't all teachers??Only 2 weeks left of school so I need to get on it. I can't believe how fast this year has gone by. I guess they all do.
I just got an email from a good friend who's father-in-law has had a stroke and 2 heart attacks since Friday. He is in ICU now & I should have a report later today. She is having a hard time keeping her girls on a schedule (one is in school) and spending the time she feels she needs to at the hospital. That is such a hard thing as the kids can't just sit in a hospital all day but it's important for them to see their grandpa. I feel that there is illness all around. I guess there are times in life where that is the case for all of us. And I know that with our parents & grandparents aging it is just inevitable.
I am off to Walmart today - UGH! I try to go early before it gets too busy. I just don't have the patience to maneuver the cart all over the store when it is busy. I often find that other shoppers are extremely rude and totally unaware that they aren't the only ones in the store. I try to be considerate and kind but it is sometimes difficult. I buy what I can from Drugstore.com but I can't get everything there. After that I am off to scrapbook at a friend's house for a while so I have someting fun to look forward to....
