TV Land

It’s been 47 days basically in bed. Only about 15 days until my next doctor visit and finding out what my next step in recovery will be. I am ready to start living my life again soon!

It’s amazing how one can spend an entire day doing nothing productive at all. It is hard to believe that my TV has been my link to sanity. Seriously, it has been turned on for at least 18 hours a day. In the beginning I just slept to the noise then slowly began watching prime time in the evenings. After I stopped taking pain RX then I started watching daytime TV which mostly consisted of HGTV. After a couple of weeks I had seen every single show at least two times then moved on over to DIY to see all those shows. Next, I pretty much saw every food show available along with most TLC shows. Throw in “American Pickers”, “Storage Wars” and “Pawn Stars” and I have been pretty much entertained. I also have seen every single show on the “Travel Channel” but had to turn that off because for a person trapped in bed viewing the top 20 beaches was not helping my mental attitude. “Diners, Dives and Drive-Ins” just serves to make me hungry. I mean, how many calories can I burn in bed???

This week my boredom is at an all-time high.  I have resorted to some really “out there” programming.

  • “Dr. G: Medical Examiner”- Provides autopsies on unexplained deaths.
  • “I Was Pregnant and Didn’t Know It”- Really quite amusing!
  • “Swamp Wars”- No words to describe, but it makes me laugh.
  • “Toddlers and Tiaras”- Don’t even get me started. I have time on my hands and would love to “talk” to these moms.

The one show I wanted to watch was “Hoarders”, however it only took about 15 minutes and I could not stand watching them sift through the filth so that was a quick no-go!

I have learned that the “Proactive” ads for a better skin advertise on every single channel at every hour of the day.  A few more days and I might even cave and place my order!

I have luckily watched lots of great movies friends have loaned me which helps break up the insanity of all this TV viewing.

I am thinking I am going to start some good books next week. I cannot live by TV alone. When I get to the walking part I pretty much am sure I will not ever have the TV on again.

This is my funny kitty who has become really good friends with my boot cast while we all watch TV!

  1. Oh. My. Goodness! I know I’m behind on things with all the graduation prep – but I can’t believe I missed the fact that you have 2 broken legs! Bless your heart sweet girl! 47 days in bed?! It’s a wonder you are still sane! I’ll be praying for a good report from the doctor!

  2. I am soooooooooooooo sorry to hear about your injury!!! That is terrible:( You are dealing with even worse with me than my arms. Prayers going out!!!! My computer ate your blog:( I will have to catch up!

  3. You haven’t lost your sense of humor! Keep going little one. . .we have the same taste in TV it appears, at least when I turn it on. Lots of rubbish on there – sadly. Just stopping by to wish you well on your road to recovery!

  4. I hope the next 15 (14 now?) days go by QUICKLY! I know you must be sick of staying in bed! I usually don’t watch a lot of tv, but lately I’ve gotten sucked into a few shows: The Bachelorette, Trisha’s Southern Kitchen, Guiliana & Bill. Just a few ideas if you’re getting sick of Proactiv commercials! 🙂 Feel better soon!

  5. Keep the kitty near you! Did you know that the purring of a cat is supposedly the best thing to mend bones? Something about the frequency of vibrations speeds bone injuries. Great company AND making you better, faster (hopefully)! Hang in there!

    Isn’t it sad that our most accessible form of entertainment is so pitiful? I can remember when it was really fun to watch TV. Now if you don’t like Reality shows or the NEWS you are just up a creek. And if you do find something that you like, they take it off the air just when you were getting settled in!

  7. I’m so glad you’re doing better … I think I’d be completely insane by now — although I watch Pawn Stars and Swamp People and every once in awhile Hoarders. So what’s that say about my state of mind?! Wishing you quick healing 🙂

  8. Oh my goodness … that’s a long time to be stuck in bed. I’d probably go completely stir crazy and watch Food Network all day long.
