By the end of the day, in fact once I've cooked and eaten dinner, I'm not good for much of anything except relaxing in front of the TV.
I'm delighted my reality shows are back especially Dancing with the Stars. My daughter-in-law always comes to watch with us, and hubby is much better at seeing the missteps than either of us. We're always enthralled with the great costumes. It's also fun to watch the chubby ones shed the pounds.It doesn't take us long to choose our favorites either. I'm rooting for Kristi Alley.
That's not the only one I watch, Amazing Race is well...amazing. I can't believe what those people have to do. They'd all do better if they took the time to read the directions through before dashing off through the foreign city they've found themselves in. I have a granddaughter and her husband who are determined to do the Amazing Race. She's a speech therapist in a public school, her hubby a deputy sheriff. They have two young kids. They are grooming the grandparents (my daughter and son-in-law) to be ready to take over if and when they get to go.
Oh, and there's also Survivor. Now this one I can't watch when it's on because I have my writers' group to go to on Wendnesday nights, but I can watch it on my computer the next day.
I try to watch Celebrity Apprentice (can't believe how rude and obnoxious all those so-called celebs are) but I usually fall asleep before it's over.
My sister (she's old like me but tapes everything and watches the next day) and my eldest daughter are also addicted--and I can count on them to tell me the outcome in case I don't stay awake until the end of any of these shows.
My excuse? Where else can you observe such interesting characters?
