The View Recap: Week March 8 -12

Monday March 8th:  Ok, this week on the view they started without Whoopi and I was of course dissapointed since she makes the show funner, but it was still a good start.  Well Vanessa Williams joined the gang and I always feel sorry for the guest host because they don't get to talk and of course it happended again.  They talked about the confession that could free Amanda Knox and the Jaycee Dugard tape that was realease to the media asking for privacy.  They also discussed the teenager who went missing Chelsea King and how her body was located after mising for almost two weeks.  Also Sherri joined them via skype to talk about her time on the red carpet. 
Tuesday March 9th:  Whoopi and Sherri were both back and i really enjoyed the show.  Andy Garcia and his daughter Dominik Garcia-Lorido were on the show to talk about thier new movie City Island. I enjoyed seeing a non dysfunctional family who can work together.  I wish the interview had been longer.  The also had some authors on to discuss their book, Flow: The Cultural Story of Menstruation.  I have to tell you that was a very intersting segment and I have decided that it is on my list of books to read. 
Wednesday March 10th:  All the co host were on this episode and one of my favorite actors Forest Whitaker came to discuss his new movie, Our Family Wedding.  He also taked about his movie with Jude Law, Repo Men.  I have to admit that I would like to go see the family movie and my son wants to see Repo Men.  It was a good interview.  Last but not least former governor Jesse Ventura was there with his new book, American Conspiracies, it will not be on my list of  must reads but he is alway very entertaining. 
Thursday March 11th:  Sir Elton John was there and it was just more then I could handle.  I was looking forward to this episode all week, and as usually he did not dissapoint.  Eric McCormack was there to discuss his new Lifetime movie, Who is Clark Rockefeller?  I am looking forward to watching that its recording right now.  I have missed him and was sad to see that his last show was not continued.  National Enquirer's Barry Levine was also there to talk abou the fact that they have been on the front of a lot of breaking news stories lately which is not how things were previously.  I still wont read it but it is intersting to know that they do actually have real journalist working there. 
Friday March 12th:  Sad to say that I was unable to see this one because it was not recorded. Christopher Walken, Carolina Herrera, Carol Leifer were on and I will be watching it in the moring after the kids go down for a nap on the internet.

Reflections


This week was to say the least one of the most interesting of the month for me. I turned 37 on March 10and I have to tell you it was not scary at all. I found out on Tuesday that we are expecting a little boy in July, my husband is beside himself with joy. It was a week full of reflecting on where I have been and focusing on where I need to go. I finished another set of classes and I actually found the time to fit in study time and class time. I have a planned strategy for myself and my children when it comes to my school time and it might actually work. My girls started a new playgroup that is twice a week and I have committed to getting them there both days regardless of how I feel. Its good to let them have some free range time, plus it allows me some gossip time. I look forward to next week bringing new surprises and new challenges. Here's to being one year older and just a little bit wiser.

General Hospital in Review March 1-5

Well with Elizabeth trying to take control of her future I have hope for her, but not for Nikolas who still has hope for a future with her. Has he not seen the look in her eyes when Lucky walks into a room. Sonny is still walking a fine line with Dante and Micheal and I can not wait for the truth to come out. I am sick of Sonny and Carly holding on to this secret for all the wrong reasons. Alexis would do double time to help out Micheal and so would Jacks. Not sure if I like the story line with Johnny and Ethan, still a little annoyed with him being such a jackass.

the View Week in Review March 1-5

Well lets start with The View, Whoopi was missing in action most of the week and I have to admit that its just not as funny when she is not there. I will say that my favorite interview of the week was with Don Cheadle and Wesley Snipes, I wished it had been longer. I liked having Valerie Bertinelli on, but she did not really get a chance to talk. What was up with Robert Pattinson's hair on all the interviews he had this week. I am not a big fan of his and that hair really annoyed me. I will be watching Monday for the Oscar recap with Sherri Sherphard. Oh and I could not believe that Barbara got the guest confused on Thursday.

Weekly update for Feb 28- March 6

This past week was crazy and I am glad its over. I have fallen off of the wagon when it comes to being prepared for dinner every night. I have given up on being able to go to my classes on Thursday evening because my kids are just too wild. This week it was cold, wet and just insanity everyday and it felt like no matter what I tried to do it just didn't work. I have decided to change the way I deal with each issue. Meal planning must be done on Sunday if I am to survive the week without going on a bender. Thursday is now craft night for the kids, they will have pages to color, Playdoh, construction paper art, and anything else that I can think of to keep them busy. I am working with my oldest daughter to set up the art center weekly so we can both stop all the yelling that happens and cut down on the stress. My older kids have actually kept up with their chores except on Fridays because my son never comes home on Friday. As we jump into the weekend we hope that next week will be less stress and more productive then last and I hope that I will become a better parent and wife.

General Hospital

I have to admit that I have been a long time fan of GH and I love the fact that most of the characters have not changed over the year. I also have to admit that I am a bit disappointed in the story line with Lucky, Nicolas and Elizabeth. I was sure they would go a different route when it came to the paternity test for Elizabeth, but as soon as the showed Helena in the lab paying off the tech I turned it off (just for a minute). I can not have another baby switching incident l just cant (dramatic pause). I was really hoping we would go a new and interesting way with this but alas its not the case. I will still watch and support GH, but really could we have not come up with something better. What do you think?
