three cheers for monday
this is going to make me sound like a pathetic loser, but I am so excited for Prison Break to start back up. Now of course it goes without saying that Michael Schofield (Wentworth Miller) is one smokin' hot ex-con, but the show is also quite good. I think even if it were him just reading the yellow pages I would tune in every single stinking week. anyway, I just saw that commercial and I had to mention his hotness. We are going out with Liz & Justin tonight, but Matt wanted to play in a basketball game, so we're doing the late show instead, which is actually good, becaue that way I can put Sawyer down instead of the babysitter. I hope Sawyer sleeps okay, she's had croup and bless her heart she's hardly let it slow her down, but I worry leaving her when she isn't feeling 100% good. I think we're seeing Casino Royale, which Matt & I saw in Hawaii, but we loved it, so we do not mind seeing it again. But the main thing I wanted to get off my chest is the fact that I am considering entering the...please do not laugh...Mrs. Utah United States pageant. Seriously. How did I go from thinking pageants and those who would enter them are totally dumb to considering doing one myself? It's Kirsten's fault. She has been talking about this particular pageant since she saw her friend Alicia win it last year; how it's so different and not at all like a typical pageant. (oh my hell, my dog's farts are so disgusting, I'm going to die) Anyway, it's for married women, and I guess there are alot of people who have never done pageants that do it. The whole point of it for me would be to just get outside of my comfort zone, and stretch a little. I don't want to get stagnant as a mother, and have that be the only thing that defines me. I hate asking people for money, so I'm going to get all the sponsors I need to not have to pay a dime into this thing. I hate interviews, but I need to be more articulate and confident in front of strangers, so I'm going to do it. I am not naturally a very outgoing person, but I'm going to do my best to make as many new friends as I possibly can because I want to be better at that. So although it's totally not what I naturally would do, I think that's exactly why I should do it. I guess I've reached that point where my parents can't force anymore character into me, so I've got to start doing it myself. How weird. I feel so old.
