A Great Day with Family

Today was a really good day. Unlike my 4th. I ended up getting sick yesterday so no Independence Day fun for Julie. Wah!  It was spent drinking gallons of Sprite and stuffing my face with crackers.  I was in my jammies all day, didn't brush my teeth, take a bath or put on my contacts. I was miserable.  I have no idea what made me sick.  All I know is that I wouldn't wish it on my worst enemy. Now this morning I felt like a human again.  Not 100% but at least I wasn't dizzy or nauseated.  That was a huge step for me.

As I mentioned, it was a good day.  I spent the day with my youngest niece, Gabble.  That is one of many nicknames that I call her. We had lunch at our favorite place, Pei Wei then headed to Target for a little shopping and then a spur of the moment movie "Madea's Witness Protection".  (Don't judge us).  We had a great conversation and she always surprises me with her wisdom.  

Spending the day with her made me kinda wonder what would happen if my life would have been different. You know - marriage, kids, carpools, the whole enchilada. Then I realized that I am so not a grown up yet.  I don't feel like one. I might not even act like one.  I'm a great faker. I could win an Oscar for the role of a lifetime.  All in all a good day.  Today's soundtrack theme is family. Enjoy!

Summer TV - Turn It On Again

I loves summer TV. I remember being a kid during the summer and there was nothing but reruns on prime-time TV.  It was okay for awhile but then it got SO boring. But I don't count the daytime reruns because I loved me Addams Family, Father Knows Best, Good Times and Happy Days.  Those were our go to shows. 

It's taken awhile, then huzzah! Some of the cable stations realized the good scripted shows still matter during the summer.  And who does it best?  Well in my opinion, it's USA Network. I am such a huge fan of their line up. Here are my favorites and why.

1. Royal Pains -Hot, smart Dr. working in The Hamptons.

2. Common Law - Two hot cops in L.A.

3. Necessary Roughness - Beautiful, smart psychiatrist treats hot athletes.

If you're not watching these, give them a shot. Each of the shows is funny and smart. Go on, what more do you have to do?  Loved to hear what you think of them.  So for today's soundtrack, our theme is TV. Enjoy!
