Well, I've got three episodes of DownTON Abbey under my belt... or maybe it's four. They are all starting to blend together. Interesting soap. I think what holds my attention is that nothing really happens in each episode. Nothing climatic anyway. It's like the first chapter of a Stephen King novel in each episode. Lots going on, but no punch (yet), so I watch the next episode waiting...
So that's what I've been doing today. I can probably squeeze in another episode before the game comes on

Lol Pac! We cancelled our Dish so we've been downloading things to watch.
I just finished Smalville, Dexter and Hells Kitchen. Still patiently waiting for the next episode of Vampire Diaries. I get so hooked, how sad am I?!

I'm sitting here feeling a little mad at myself, but in a way it is all for good. I was very bad on my allergy diet the last couple of days, eating fish and chips, tacos, swiss cheese, dried fruit, a lot of beef, etc. It is bad because I feel pretty yucky, and it is good because it proves to me the diet is on the right track and I need to stick to it. The good news is I weighed myself today (supposed to be tomorrow but I got mixed up) and I haven't gained or lost since the added 3 pounds last week. I was afraid I had gained more so to stay even is good.

I have piles of laundry to fold from yesterday and more to wash today. I also need to do some shopping but it is supposed to rain and we still didn't get my windshield wiper arm fixed. They had to order in the part and it won't arrive until Wednesday. It is on the driver's side so even though the arm is removed and wouldn't harm the window, I won't be able to see.

I still haven't watched any of Downton Abbey. Will have to get to it one of these days.

Don't start. Not until you've finished your laundry anyway
The only reason I got my dishwasher ran is because I can pause the show
OK, back to football. I need to cleanse my mind from all the drama.

I was thinking of trying Downton Abbey but maybe I shouldn't. I get way to hooked! I have things to do, like bath, eat, sleep

It's like Dynasty without the cat fights... well, I think we may have a cat fight coming up here shortly...
But that's a topic for the DA thread
