Maybe I'm Driving the Right Car

Okay, so I've never been a night owl.
I was the child that my parents tried to keep up till my bedtime.  I was ALWAYS the first to fall asleep at slumber parties, I knew that they there going to do things to me when I fell asleep, but I just couldn't stop myself. I think I was the only one in college that enjoyed taking the early classes, because I was wide awake.
Side Note: I married a HUGE night owl!


So, I go to bed early, so what....
Last night I was all geared up to watch the opening ceremonies of the 2010 Winter Olympics, had the kids in bed, and myself with a hot cup of tea all ready to watch.  Next thing I know, Beau is waking me up at midnight telling me to go to bed.  Yep, I missed the whole thing, it started at like 8:45 and I was sound asleep on the couch before it even began...I saw NOTHING...it started at 8:45 and I missed the WHOLE thing...and I really wanted to see it!
Okay, so I might not be a night owl...does that matter?

I have another confession to make...
I'm going to put it in type, out on the world wide web...
Here it goes...
Beau and I like to watch Murder She Wrote...
Yep, the show that retirees in the 80's loved...that's the one.
and we discovered the NetFlix has it online so we can stream it...and we did just that and just finished the first season...it was great!
And most nights as we sat watching Angela solving those crazy murders I sat crocheting away.  Yes, I'm 32 years old and I spend my nights watching Murder She Wrote and crocheting.  Well, as long as it's not too late that is, I need to be in bed by 9!

Okay, one more confession...
now this is a biggie!

I LOVE Diagnosis Murder.  I've been a closet watcher from way back in the day.  Not sure why I love it so much.  Okay, that's I lie...
since I'm on a confession role this morning I might was well tell you that I have a major crush on Dick Van Dyke.  But it's a slightly weird crush...
it's not a crush on this Dick

my crush is way more serious, it's on this guy


Seriously!  I have a crush on him...but it's not a normal crush, I call it my "Grandpa Crush!"  I love Dick Van Dyke and I want him to be my grandpa...I never had a grandpa so I have visions of visiting my grandparents house and Dick Van Dyke opening up the door and giving me a great big hug!  I have visions of the wonderfully funny times we'd have over the Thanksgiving table, the laughs and tears we'd share.  He'd be a grandpa that I could call up and talk to about stuff...okay so I know it's a little weird.

So lets sum up my confessions...I go to bed WAY early, I love to watch Murder She Wrote and Diagnosis Murder, I crochet, I have a crush on Dick Van Dyke...

oh, and I drive a Buick LaSabre...I've been complaining about my car, but now that I see it all in print I'm pretty sure that I'm driving the right car, maybe I'm in the wrong body?  I need to find a body about 40 years older than the one I got!

Didn't Beau play that Dick Van Dyke part in Mary Poppins in the 5th grade ? Maybe you need a copy of our video to watch some night when you can stay up late (-:

I love Diagnosis Murder too! But I like to stay up late, so it all evens out for me in the end. :)

So, I've picked up crocheting, too :) What do you make? I've been making headbands for my nieces and hacky sacks for my boys. I even made a "Bob the Tomato" for Zac. :)

I'll admit I have a crush on Sean Connery, but not the young version either. There I said it!

Seriously, folks, she was the 'Kid Who Never Missed Bedtime". I didn't know there was such a thing untill Kiera came along. We'd have company over with kids playing all over outside and along about 8pm...wait a minute, where's Kiera? I'd find her curled up asleep on her bed.
