I've been noticing some things lately, and maybe you have, too.
Have you noticed that everyone in the world is pregnant right now? Really. It seems like 75% of the blogs I look at have a strange floating baby in the corner announcing how many days (roughly) until the impending arrival of their newborn. Don't get me wrong; I'm a proud owner of that floating baby ticker. I'm just saying...
It must be my age.
Lucky for me, it just gives me more things to be excited about- because nothing is more exciting than a baby.
Also- have you noticed that the majority of shows on TV these days are reality based? Between The Bachelor, Jon and Kate Plus Eight, American Idol, and The Biggest Loser, I'm wondering if the sitcom hasn't already given up the ghost.
And what is the deal with the sheer amount of pharmaceutical commercials?! Have you noticed this?! I can't help but thing about how much money these drugs rake in.
Besides that, what has happened to good summer movies? Star Trek? Is that my only option? 'Nuff said.
And why, WHY?!, do schedules go out the window in the summertime? I'll tell you why- It's hard to convince a little boy that it is night time when there is still enough light outside for kids to be riding bikes and throwing balls around on the lawn. I remember feeling cheated as a kid when my Mom made me go inside to go to bed when Brandon Wilson (the neighbor, not the cousin) was outside lighting bottle rockets. Now I know why she did it- she needed a break. (Or maybe it could have been because bottle rockets are against the law. Either way, it's understandable).
This post was not meant to be a rant (although it seems to be taking shape as one, doesn't it?).
I've also noticed that people are friendlier when it's nice outside. If it's a really nice day, you might even get lucky enough to have a bagger at Smith's take your groceries out for you.
Music also sounds better with the windows in the car rolled down and the door to the house open.
It is also worth it to live in the mountains just so you can have the summer nights that we do.
Lastly, there's ladybugs. Ladybugs love my bushes in my backyard. I love ladybugs. Don't you?
