Tuesday thoughts!

Here’s what’s in my little noggin this Tuesday:

1. My Mom had to take my Granny to the emergency room yesterday. As I have shared she was diagnosed with lung cancer a little over a month ago. Still nothing has yet to be done. It’s been quite the process of getting the clearance and the tests she needs before they do the surgery to remove part of her lung. And she battles with very bad vertigo which makes you really sick and dizzy and she did not feel good at all over the weekend and she attempted to walk during one of her dizzy spells and hurt herself. So my Mom took her to the ER yesterday to get her admitted and said she was not leaving until she felt better and gets the tests ran that she needs. Please keep her in your prayers.

2. Lady Gaga is coming to our area in April. I’ll be honest; I’d love to score tickets to this concert, don't listen to a whole lot of her music, but just so I can see her costumes. She is so bizarre but unique in her own right and I think that’s what draws people to her.

3. I ordered from Netflix for the first time yesterday. I feel like I need to dress in my Jasmine costume and start singing “A Whole new world”.

4. I set up Pandora on my computer and set up Glee music on there…. Ekkkkkk!!!! I think this now officially makes me a Glee lover.

5. These are some shows I’m into this fall: DWTS, Modern Family, Parenthood, Biggest Loser (this is my first season watching), Glee (Duh), Better with you, and Law & Order: SVU.

I’ve wanted to try out Mad Men, and I’ve heard a lot about Teen Mom on MTV. And of course, all the Bravo TV shows. There are not enough hours in the day.

I am so glad the networks air these shows online so for those of us without DVR, we can catch the shows. Makes me happy!

What are you watching right now? Any good shows I’m missing out on?

6. I came home last night to find an unexpected check waiting for me in the mailbox. PTL. That pretty much made my day.

7. This is a deep thought, but why do we have a tendency to hold on to relationships when we know it’s time to just let go?

8. Over the weekend I had someone come out on Saturday to check out and fix the internet at the house. I greeted him in my pajamas with an over-sized shirt that I got from the blood bank that says “What is your blood type?” (You know, because I was just curious as to what his blood type was, ha) and pajama pants that did not match. And he had to leave and come back. He was old and in no way trying to impress. I then changed while he was gone and he came back and was like, you changed, hope it wasn’t for me. Ummmmmm, NO!!!

9. Our Fed Ex guy at our office creeps me out.

Me: Hi, how are you doing?
Fed Ex Guy: Better now that I saw you.

10. I was on my way to school yesterday to Orlando, and my car was very tempted to makes its way over to Disney World and just skip school, ha. There’s so many times on my way home at night if I time it just right I can catch the fireworks from Disney in my rearview mirror as I’m driving away. I live a little north of Disney.

11. All day yesterday I had the song, “Don’t Stop Believin’ by Journey stuck in my head. One word, Glee!

Anywho, there’s my brain dump for you today!! :)

I don't have DVR either so I have to catch my missed shows on the internet. Castle comes on Monday nights and I love it. You should check it out. :)

Aishlea and Brandon said...

Hope your Granny is feeling better today!

The Fed Ex Guy would creep me out too....

and PTL for unexpected checks!!!!!

His Doorkeeper said...

Lauren, So sorry about your Grandma. Hope they can find some help and relief for her. Saying a prayer for her and your Mom today.

I'm old but I would pass on GaGa. She is someone who is leading this culture down the wrong path (but who ask me, right?)

Stick to serving the Lord and spreading your sweet sunshiny- self to others and God will direct your life to true happiness! End of sermon for today! I love you!
You are a terrific young lady!

DaisyJo said...

1. Praying for your granny.
2. I was belting out Don't Stop Believing with my dad yesterday.

Melissa said...

Girl, I would be at Disney all the time! I love that place!

And, guys like your Fed Ex dude really gross me out. Why do they think that's appropriate? Ugh!

Jessica @ Acting Adult said...

If I was that close to WDW, I'm not sure I'd ever get anything done. You have more will power than I.

THE Stephanie said...

Ok, I'm worried. You just said "dress in my Jasmine costume". Please tell me you don't actually have a Jasmine costume. Bwahahaha!!!

And girl, you must checkout The Good Wife! The.best.show.ever. Oh, and I love Chuck, too. I'm also jumping in with a few new ones - Chase and Undercovers.

My DVR is on overload, for sure. :)

Whitney said...

Love random lists!
Will be praying for your Granny!
Love Modern Family!
Totally jealous you might see Lady Gaga!

Jacquie said...

Boy that was a random list. I just prayed for your grandmother and her medical team.

Angie said...

Oh...I love your brain dump. Nice tidbits. Seriously though, I am praying for you and your Granny. I saw your tweets yesterday. I'm liftin' y'all up.

We recently got Netfix too, and the kids use it more than Gary and I do...ha!

We like most of the same shows...yay us! Have a great afternoon girly!

Jordan said...

Ugh, did you seriously have to post about Disney, Lauren??? I want to go SO bad!! LOL ;-)

a boy a girl and a pug said...

In this wonderful life... said...

I've been wanting to do Netflix again!!! I hope your granny is doing okay!

amy (metz) walker said...

Glad your Granny is going ok...

...I saw on Twitter that you're now watching Modern Family, I think. That is my FAV show right now. Also, if you've never watched Dexter and you can handle a bit of a "dark" show...it's a must see. I'm obsessed with it.

Jenni said...

Enjoyed reading your tuesday thoughts!! The Jasmine and "a whole new world" comment made me laugh. :) Have a great rest-of-your-week!

BARBIE said...

I'll say a pray for your Granny. I have had a couple of bouts of very bad vertigo. It is not fun. I have Biggest Loser recorded, but have yet to watch it. Right now my son and I are watching Season 2 of 24 on DVR, and we love the new show "The Event". Too creepy about the Fed Ex guy. Hope you're having a great week.

Dark Glass said...

This is coming from a guy’s prospective, so there is definitely a chance that you would hate it, but there is a show on AMC called Rubicon and it is awesome!! I just started watching and I'm hooked! Just sayin!!

Perfectly Imperfect said...

Hope your Granny is feeling better. Keep us updated girl.

I've got Glee on my Netflix and am currently dvr'ing this second season. I officially have to see what the fuss is all about!

You must check out Teen Mom. Brilliant television!

Heather Bug said...

I'm so sorry about your grandmother. :( I had vertigo for 3 months after I had Macy and it was the most miserable I have ever been in my life. I feel so bad for her. :( I hope she feels better soon!!!
