Over the past month or so I’ve settled into a new routine for getting chores done around the house, keeping up with my school work and running household errands such as getting money from the ATM and grocery shopping. One thing that I’ve fallen in the habit of doing is watching television while working around the house. I have a set television schedule that I’m adhering to:

8:00 a.m. to 9:00 a.m. “The Nanny” on Lifetime (if I’m awake)
9:00 a.m. to 10:00 a.m. “The Golden Girls” on Lifetime (it’s a must in order to retain gay card)
10:00 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. “Leave It To Beaver” on TVland. Is it me or was Tony Dow quite hot in the later years of this show?
10:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. “I Love Lucy” on TVland.
11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. “Green Acres” on TVland. I think this is one of my favorite shows of all time.

Naturally I’m keeping very busy with my chores and I just keep the television on for some noise in the house. I would never sit down just to watch television. No siree, I’d never do that. Especially when we’re running so low on bon bons.

Actually, I would, bon bons aside.. I’m loving “Green Acres” all over again and it’s my “musn’t miss” show of the day. The only vexing thing about it is that it’s during one of my classes on Tuesday and Thursday. I’ll have to remember that when I schedule my classes next semester. I’ve always loved the show and have always considered it to be one of my favorites, but there are so many subtle quirks of the show that I enjoy. How many other shows were there where they stopped dialog to let the credits roll? The little gags in the show are priceless. I just love it.

Thank goodness TVland hasn’t added “Bewitched” back to the schedule, I’d never get anything done.

It’s officially my first snow day. They didn’t close school until 20 minutes into my first class of the day, so I was able to get through one math test before packing up and heading home. There’s no classes tonight. It’ll be a good night to snuggle up and drink hot chocolate and eat leftover Superbowl food.

Snow Day?

I haven’t felt like this in a couple of decades. The weather is nasty right now. Snow is falling like crazy (we are expecting close to a foot of snow by tonight), the wind is whipping about and it is very cold, with the wind chill down around -20ºF. Most of the schools didn’t bother opening and those that did are dismissing early and canceling after school activities.

I keep checking websites to see if the college is closed today. I’m doing my “Snow Day Dance”, which I haven’t done since 1986.
