Six






man, the things we sacrifice when we get married. i mean i knew we would have to compromise and sacrifice some things, but i didn't realize it would be the one thing that i was really good at. life is so hard sometimes. 


today is our 6 month mark of being married. it also marks 6 months since i broke up with most of my TV shows. it's a bittersweet time for me. 

sigh. does anyone else out there, ever get overwhelmed with TV shows? i feel like i have to base my whole life around them. i feel like every season a million new more TV shows come out, and i am still trying to catch up on old ones. i feel like i can't choose. i feel like i am trying to date multiple people or something. what if two shows are on at the same time? i feel like a cheating, two-timing tramp. when watching one show, i am thinking about the other one. what if i can't watch it online later? what if everyone else in the world wants to talk about it the next day, and i haven't seen it yet? i have to shield myself from the media until i find out what happened. what do you do when you don't live at home anymore and don't have DVR? sigh. i miss DVR.
 

i used to watch SO many shows. when i started dating Sean, it got hard. trying to catch someone up on 6 season's of Grey's Anatomy is like pulling teeth. he probably wouldn't like One Tree Hill either. we only got him through one episode of Lost and he slept through half of it. i think he might be okay with Arrested Development, but not as in love with it as i am. the only 2 shows that i have seemed to be able to convert him to are The Office, and The Bachelor. i guess that is pretty good though. The Office is the most important. The Biggest Loser starts this week, and he says he likes that one, so we will see how it goes. i am really looking forward to it.

next week is a big week in TV people. 


if anyone wants some advice, here it is:


don't get behind on things (your TV shows)


count your many blessings (TIVO/DVR)


be diligent (about making your husband watch your shows, even if you have to bribe him)


be smart (about what shows you choose to watch and not watch)


don't sweat the small stuff (like American Idol. there will always be another season. if you miss Grey's, you are screwed)


exercise daily (your channel changing finger)


take out the trash (the bumpit infomercials)


read daily (your TV guide)






okay, now don't get me wrong. these last 6 months have been the best of my life. i know i joke around a lot on here. i tease Sean way too much. it's only because i love him to pieces though. i'm like that kid in elementary school who used to pull my hair and make me cry. he only did it because he had a crush on me right? at least thats what i have to tell myself. Sean is amazing though. i would be completely lost without him. "he is the bread to my butter, and the breath to my life." i will give a free hair flower to anyone who can tell me what movie that is from. 

anyway. i just want Sean to know that he is my better half. even though i am a mess, look like Medusa, have a big personality, suck at being a housewife, and that my idea of cooking is making rice krispy treats or ordering a pizza, that i don't exactly love cleaning, or taking care of my car, or being productive, that i love TV a little bit more than being physically fit, drove away from the gas station with the pump still in my car, have more cavities than the average person, have peed all over myself in my car, ran over a dog, eat captain crunch in bed, and sleep with the box, drool, take my baby blanket with me in the car, ramble a lot about stupid things, am obsessed with baby elephants, and don't like to hang up my clothes or clean out my suitcase for at least 3 weeks, blame everything on PMS (there is such thing as Post and Present Menstrual Syndrome, right?) and like to sleep more than be awake... 

that i still love him more than anything in this world. that he makes me feel perfect, even though i am clearly not. that he loves me when i'm sobbing on the floor, and loves me when i am bouncing off the walls. i love that he is always there.. even if we are trying to have a serious conversation and he is jiggling my relief society arms, i still know he cares. 

i'm crazy about you Sean. thanks for saving me. as cheesy as that is. it's the truth. here's to another million months!






love, your chlobowshki

Diana said...

congrats!

as for the musicals, i don't know any guy unless he is like 2 years old, that likes musicals. That is a tough one! Hmmm, i know a lot of guys like bollywood movies. maybe that'll help?
the only reason my husb likes it is because he is not a typical straight guy...LOL

You should write a letter to ABC and NBC and ask why Grey's needs to be on at the same time as The Office, and have commercials at the same time. At least you got your husband into The Office though, he'll understand someday how important tv shows are. =]

kayla & tyler said...

you guys are soo cute!! happy 6 months. just wait in no time, you'll be at one year. it's crazy how fast time goes!!! by the way, i'm so proud of you that you got Sean to like the Batchelor. that show is amazing, i have tried to make tyler love it. but he think it's ridiculous. dang dang dang. haha

kayla & tyler said...

ps. pretty sure I didn't spell that right. my bad.

Rachel Leigh said...

You are so cute! I love that you guys are crazy together. My husband and I have been married 3 years and I used to be the TV QUEEN.. I totally mean it too. But now, sadly, I don't watch hardly any TV. I am glad you have your priorities straight. Work out the TV schedule now or you will end up like me! And I am guessing that the quote is from Julie and Julia!
Oh and you should come see the puppies when they are a little older so you can hold them. You live in Provo right?

arrested development is the funniest show ever. you should really try harder to convert him to that. cause even though it might take a bit to catch on to the humor... that is how the office was right? well, have you ever seen flight of the conchords? i love how i just added another one to the list for you. we are excited for biggest loser too. yay. you should find people with a dvr. like us! and we shall make parties! all for the purpose of tv! congrats on 6 months!

i laughed so much at this paragraph. you are me. i am you.

"even though i am a mess, look like Medusa, have a big personality, suck at being a housewife, and that my idea of cooking is making rice krispy treats or ordering a pizza, that i don't exactly love cleaning, or taking care of my car, or being productive, that i love TV a little bit more than being physically fit, drove away from the gas station with the pump still in my car, have more cavities than the average person, have peed all over myself in my car, ran over a dog, eat captain crunch in bed, and sleep with the box, drool, take my baby blanket with me in the car, ramble a lot about stupid things, am obsessed with baby elephants, and don't like to hang up my clothes or clean out my suitcase for at least 3 weeks, blame everything on PMS (there is such thing as Post and Present Menstrual Syndrome, right?) and like to sleep more than be awake... "

i am a mess. feel like i suck at being a housewife, have a huge personality, hate being productive, ran over a dog, drool, ramble a lot about stupid things, don't like to hang up my clothes or clean out my suitcase for at least 3 weeks (try unpacking 4 months of life...ewwww), blame EVERYTHING on pms AND finally like to sleep more than be awake.

thanks for making me feel more normal.

grant + brittany said...

Of course you can come see the puppies! Whenever you want, seriously, just let me know. You can come and hold a puppy while you watch one of your shows. it serves two purposes: 1: you get to hold a puppy and snuggle and 2: I get to watch some TV... see it all works out.

Michele said...

You guys are too cute! Congrats, heres to another million more:)

Michael & Mindy said...

I love that you celebrate every month. We totally did the same thing. After our one year anniversary I said, "Happy 13 months!" And we laughed. When I tried it with 14 months my husband told me it was time to cut it out. What a party-pooper.

Matt said...

the quote sounds like something from Step Brothers, but I'm not sure. I can just see Will Farrell saying it.

Staci T said...

Believe me, I know TV stress. And I have 2 DVR'S. This is madness. Great post. You and Sean are so cute. Don't worry, in a hundred years no one will care if you made rice crispy treats for dinner. It just really won't matter. Popcorn works too!

samnhal said...

I'm pretty sure that quote is from Juno, only the most amazing movie ever.

jasmine said...

hahahaha! oh my gosh, we're practically the same person...especially with the not unpacking for 3 weeks thing. happy 6 months (almost 7 months, i'm a little late) of marriage!
