More shows gone!

And now Dirty Sexy Money, Pushing Daisies, and (my new favorite) Eli Stone!  Maybe the universe is telling me to stop watching so much TV!

Another One Bites the Dust...

Okay, so I am officially the Kiss of Death for TV shows... As soon as I like one, it usually gets cancelled.  Here is a list of shows I love that have been cut short in their prime...Lipstick JungleMy Own Worst EnemyBig ShotsOctober RoadJourneymanCrownedMiami InkMiss GuidedTeachersStudio 60Friday Night LightsThe Singing BeeThe ClassTravelerWhat About Brian?Commander in ChiefIn JusticeGood Morning MiamiReunionSo sad, so sad...

It's been FOREVER since I posted, but reading the blog of a mom from school made me want to start blogging again.... Plus, I have some exciting news:

So I am taking charge of my Singleness! I recently read a book I bought at a Christian bookstore called Table for One about enjoying being single and not putting your life on hold, so last week I went to dinner by myself! This may not be a huge deal to you, but it is to me. I even sat without my back to everyone (which was my initial instinct) and NO ONE looked like they felt sorry for me! I feel like I am living, not waiting for life to begin.

I also decided that with my 30th birthday around the corner, I would try to come up with a list of 30 reasons it's great to be single. I have 28 currently, and the funny thing is, I came up with four and the other 24 were given to me by my married friends! There are things to be thankful for that I never even thought to be thankful for! I'll post the list when it's completed!
