I never watch network TV, I only get hooked on shows when they have a marathon on USA or TBS. I didn't start watching House until it was on USA. Recently I have been watching reruns of NCIS and Bones. How could I have not been watching Bones???? Now I have to get all caught up.

And since my husband had to extend our HBO suscription so that he could watch True Blood, I have been watching past episodes of Big Love. I thought that it would squick me with the whole polygamy thing, but I am totally intrigued by the whole thing. They have been running marathons of it as the new season is starting. I am just going to have to give up sode pop or corn chex or something so that we can just always have HBO now.

Anyway, here are some things that I have been thinking about with the whole start of the new year.

1. I want to keep better track of the books I read this year, and I am not going to be snobby and edit out the trashy romance novels either. I have a word document on my desk top and I will do my best to just jot down the title and author for each book when I finish it. I think that I will also include books that I am re-reading as well.

I would also like to post about what I am reading here as well. Maybe monthly or just when I finish something that I really would like to recommend.

ETA: Books that have cardboard pages or are mostly pictures will most likely not be included, unless they are fabulous new finds that I want to share with the other moms on my flist.

2. I want to post more on LJ in general and not just pictures of Max, as nice as those are for everyone. I really want this journal to be a reflection of my interests so that my online friends can get to know me better and I can get to know them better as well.

Being a stay at home mom/elder care giver out here in the middle of the country and small town America can be pretty isolated most times. For my personal sanity I need to invest more of my energy into adult relationships.

3. I need to write more. Now don't go getting all excited, I don't necessarily mean fan fiction. I really think that I need to put my energies into original work. I don't think that I would be comfortable posting that here, we shall see.

4. I need to be more active. I am not going to say that I am going to diet or lose 50 pounds or anything like that. I just want to be more active and feel better. Max is getting faster every day and I need to keep up!

That is it for now. :)

Big Love is intriguing. Hubby and I watch it sometimes. I can imagine it becoming fairly addictive once you know all the characters.
