my so called health

You know, sometimes no matter how hard you work to be healthy, the outside factor of stress can take you down like a 12 year old girl in one of those sumo wrestler suits.  After 2 weeks of the kids passing a mystery virus back and forth, I finally succumbed.  You know, on mother's day weekend.  We have termed it the mystery virus because it's a mish-mash of all of these symptoms that shouldn't go together.  At one moment you feel normal, and then the next minute you're passing out at the town festival.  A mystery I tell ya.
But, through it all, I was able to set a goal for myself- you know, being the over-achiever that I am.  My
goal?

To watch the entire series of "My So-called Life" on Netflix instant.  And not to brag, but I totally did it.  At the end of episode 19 I was left feeling just like I did as a 17 year old- what happened?  It was such a good show (besides that weird homeless girl/angel episode), had so much potential and some major unresolved issues.  I declare a need for all of the actors to re-assemble and make a movie.  To wrap it all up for me.  Do Angela and Jordan Catallano end up being together, or does she go the better route with Brian.  Come on!  These are important issues that must be resolved.

It was so much fun to watch again.  To see my entire wardrobe from high school (brown corduroy over-alls from Urban Outfitters?  Umm, yeah, of course.)  The funniest part to me was that I had no recollection of the parent story-line at all.  I was so wrapped up in the drama of teenage politics.

Well- I suppose that's enough talk about how I spent my entire mother's day weekend.  You know how when you're feeling healthy, a day in bed watching movies sounds like a dream?  That you couldn't even  imagine the luxury of that?  Yeah, didn't enjoy it one bit!  I wanted to be out at the parade with my people so bad!  Eating yummy food.  Playing board games.  Just...being mama.

Lucky for me, that isn't relegated to just one day a year.

i LOVED that show! and i must admit, i've been waiting for the red bean to be old enough so we can tuck in and watch it ;-) sorry to hear you weren't feeling well this weekend but hope MSCL helped with the recovery!

I'm sorry you are sick. The kids and I have been sick for a week now, and it has been a long week. I hope you get better soon! I rocked brown corduroy overalls with my doc martin boots, too.

LOL. Oh, wait, I shouldn't be laughing when you're sick...

I hope you feel better quickly! I'm craving some ancient TV myself right now. I never watched My So-Called Life. Life Goes On was my high school favorite. (I'm not older than you, am I?!)

Did you really pass out at the town festival? Ugh. I've done that so many times...

I just fell upon your blog today while I was watching My So called Life on Netflix! I totally agree with the parents storyline and how oblivious I was about it as a teen! Love, love love the show.. and your blog!

Honestly, the best shows get cancelled. Why is that? I loved that show, but I don't think I watched all of it. I should queue it!
