I fell asleep on the couch last night and told Amanda when she was going upstairs to bed that I’d likely be up there in a few hours. Instead I ended up waking up at 6:00 and decided to go ahead and start working.
When I got Milly up a couple hours later one of the first things she told me was, “Your hair’s a mess.” Nice of her to let me know.
Karen had to do some running around, so she got here a little later than usual. In that time I was pulling up Netflix for Milly to watching something. I figured she’d pick Backyardigans or Wonder Pets or Yo Gabba Gabba. Instead, she saw a picture and said, “Want blue dog.” And that’s how Milly discovered Blue’s Clues.
Milly and Karen did go out after Karen got here. I think they went to Brilliant Sky and a few other places. Karen let Milly pick an ornament out for the Christmas tree and she got a sparkly silver bird. It doesn’t hang on the tree; instead if uses a clip so it looks like it’s sitting on a branch.
Amanda and I watched American Horror Story tonight. When that show first started coming on I was a little ho-hum about it. It had some cool, gross, shocking things, but it seemed to drag on a bit. I feel like it’s really picked up lately. SPOILER ALERT. STOP READING IF YOU DON’T WANT TO SEE THE SPOILER.
I was really surprised by the surprise ending in the episode we watched tonight. Amanda and I discussed the possibility that Violet had already died when she tried to kill herself with an overdose, but it looked like she survived. Nope. She died. I just didn’t think they’d do that to a teenager on a cable TV show.
