I Got Nuthin', So Thank God For Fall TV

Have you ever had one of those weeks where you just cant get your shit together?

I am SO in the throes of one of those weeks, and I am not sure why. I have a laundry list of things to do (Oh crap...the laundry!), and I am feeling so overwhelmed, I don't know where to start.

Maybe I should watch an episode of Hoarders. There's nothing like seeing a person so overwhelmed with OCD and perfectionism that they will live in mounds of trash & cat feces, because they can't figure out where to begin, so they just don't. Oh great, I'm going to start hoarding now.

Enough.

I need to snap out of it. Slap! Slap!

I have learned that it is always good to bring yourself back to the present, and focus on the here and now. Look at me...I am writing my blog. Good. I started a day later than usual. Bad. But I am doing it.

Baby steps.

So, what else do I know? Television. (Sending up prayers of thanks to the DVR creator).

I was disappointed in the new show 'Revolution'. As a huge 'Lost' fan, and a fan of the post-apocalyptic genre, I was very hopeful. Nope. Why are all of these worlds filled with militia? Evil, tyrannical overlords and seedy people always controlling the population? When the world ends, does humanity too? And all this spiral downwards into anarchy was the result of the power going out? Really? I give it one more chance for the sake of its 'Lost' creators, (but enough of the sword fights and needless violence), then I am done.

I did really like The Mindy Project, with the girl from 'The Office'. She grew up watching rom-coms and believes that her love life should be the same way. It isn't. The characters were interesting, and I will watch again. 'Go On' was the other hit for me. Matthew Perry lost his wife and has to attend group sessions for grievers. He's snarky and an ass, but lovable too. I also like 'The New Normal' by the creators of Glee. I love the couple in this show, and the racist, anti-gay, conservative mother from hell played perfectly by Ellen Barkin.

As I sit mulling over my inability to do diddly squat, I am realizing that, Duh! It's fall. I just didn't face it before, mainly because I still have t-shirts and shorts in my drawers. (Crap! Yet another thing on the list- changing out all our summer clothes!) I always get kinda mopey this time of year. I hate watching my plants I tended all season wither and die, and I know cold & snow are just around the corner. That pisses me off. I need to embrace the winter, I know this, I just don't wanna!

Perhaps, I should be more mature about it all.

Ay, Mama!
