Gossip Girl

Like I said, Devin's watching the game so I'm not doing much other than posting random things that come to my mind. So, I was watching the season premier of Gossip Girl last night and I didn't like it very much. I have been watching the show since it started last season with a couple girl friends of mine. I know, it's not the best quality show on television, but us girls have a good time watching it together. Anyway, this week there was so much backstabbing girl drama that I didn't really enjoy watching it.

Plus, it's ridiculous how much money these kids have and what they spend it on. So much worldly priorities and it doesn't have good consequences for them. This isn't the case for all the characters, it's just hard to watch the ones where it this is the case. At the end of the show, there is a good lesson and there are good people doing good things too...but I don't know if that outweighs it enough. Since I'm not in school anymore, I have more time in the evenings and therefore, have gotten into a few shows (The Office, American Idol). Gossip Girl was one of them on the list, but I don't know if it will be for much longer...

This is a different topic, but to avoid posting 3 times in 1 night, I'll just add it here:

I've started going on morning walks usually everyday. Normally I would run, but the little baby growing inside me makes it tough to do that. So, to get at least some exercise, I have been walking. Jaxon loves riding in the stroller and if we go close enough to his nap time, he'll fall asleep! Almost every time he sees a car go by he makes his car noise and wants me to name it car or truck. So, we were on a walk last Friday when the garbage man was picking up the trash. Jaxon LOVED the garbage truck! The whole rest of the day he wanted to go outside and see the garbage truck and he told Daddy about it when he came home from work. It was really cute. He is even still talking about it!

Today, Jaxon got his first helium balloon. He played with it in the car and when we got home, I opened the door to take him out, and it flew out of the car and away into the sky. He watched it disappear and then cried about it for 20 minutes! I felt so bad he was devastated! Of course, he told Daddy about his balloon when he came home from work and kept talking about it until he went to bed.

From these 2 events, I can see he is growing and getting excited about a lot of things. His little personality is really shinning. He is such a sweet spirit in our home. We love him so much and are so blessed to have him as our son.

Okay Ruthann... I have left you like a million comments saying the same thing but I cannot figure out why it is not posting. I think it is because you have to approve them. Just so you know.. .haha I'm not the brightest.
