TiVo and trying to figure out Y&R

I got back on Thursday night from my trip, and I had over 40 hours of television to catch up on, including 20 hours of Young and the Restless. Yes, I love my favorite soap opera. On Monday night, I finished watching all my shows! I am excited to see what will happen on Desperate Housewives, Private Practice, Grey's Anatomy, Bones, The Closer and V (March baby!).

Tonight I watched Young and the Restless, and I have to say that the show is definitely going nuts! I have been a fan for over 20 years, and this last year has really got me puzzled. I know that they are trying to keep us entertained, but I'm seriously at a loss for words. The current storyline that is driving me insane. Sharon, Nick, Phylis and Adam. Adam caused Ashley to lose her baby months ago, and he made her believe that she was still pregnant. The night that Sharon went into labor in the psych hospital, he took her healthy baby into Ashley's room saying it was hers. The doctor, whom Adam hired, was furious with his actions, but he couldn't do anything because Adam had information to get him disbarred from being a doctor.

So, Sharon and Nick think that Hope (their daughter is dead), but Ashley has a baby, which isn't hers, and she named her Hope! Adam started to befriend Sharon to get revenge on Nick, and now he is "in love" with her. You can tell that he is upset about what he has done about Sharon's baby, but he continues to lie to everyone around him. In tonight's episode, Adam tells Sharon that he loves her and proposes. Tomorrow's episode shows them heading to the Bahamas for a trip, and they are probably getting married. Really? Adam, who is going blind, was able to switch the babies and continue crazy storyline? I was hoping that he would get caught!! I swear! I'm still glued to watching the show, but I'm really starting to get annoyed with this storyline. Sharon is falling too hard for Adam, and he knew that he could play with her emotions.

The show has a couple of other stories that I'm very excited about, but I seriously hope that Adam's gig is almost up! He needs to get a good kick in the rear!! I just had to write a quick blog about today's episode.

I saw Desperate Housewives last episode, and I'm trying to decide on who died. I'm sure that it isn't one of the main women because they are still on contract for another year. But, if it turns out to be Brie, then that would be a complete shocker! I love Brie! Anyways, I'm totally in love with Lie to Me, and I can't wait until the show returns! 24 is starting its last season in January, and I'm sure it will be fantastic! Let's see how Jack will save the day!

Hope everyone has a great holiday!

It's been a long time since....

Over the last year or so, I've been very busy with a variety of things and I haven't been writing in my blog. I'm hoping that over the next year that I can update it on a more regular basis. I just got back from a three-week vacation overseas seeing family! It was a great time, and I got to reconnect with some cousins that I haven't seen in 13 years!

The food was great and I drank lots of chai and went shopping! I got some great things, and I can't wait to wear everything! I got back on Thursday night, and I've been working on getting rest and recovering my trip! This weekend was extra special because it snowed over 17 inches here in Alexandria! I made snow angels and played some football yesterday!

Right now, I'm trying to catch up on my Tivo for four weeks, and I'm making great progress! One of my favorite shows is Young and the Restless, and the show is driving me crazy with some of the story lines, but I'm still watching it! I must be crazy!

I'm trying to develop a bucket list over the next few weeks, and I'm hoping to work on accomplishing some of them next year! Let's see what the new year will bring for me! Have a great night!
