Lost - 01/28

So some thoughts on last night's episode. I knew that Widmore was one of the guys that Juliet and Sawyer caught. I thought last night's episode was good. It answered some questions but it did raise some as well.
Desmond is trying to find Daniel's mother. He told him to go to Oxford to find her. I was a little confused as to why he would tell him that. Was he supposed to find his mother there or just information on how to reach her. Maybe she was a professor at Oxford too. I'm thinking she's that Hawkins lady that we saw at the end of last week talking to Ben. I think she we also saw her when Desmond was time traveling. Was she ever on the island? Anyhow Desmond goes to Oxford asking for Faraday. But he finds out that Faraday's research and himself were basically erased from Oxford. He finds the old lab, since he had been there before and finds out that something happened to some girl and that Daniel was responsible. Whatever happened to that girl, …

My favorite

People who have known me for a while know that seahorses are my favorite animal. But actually I have another favorite animal, the polar bear. Every time I go to Como Zoo I look forward to seeing the polar bears. I don't know what it is about them but they are so cute! They are really cool looking. Their paws are humongous and their fur pretty much repels water. I went to the zoo in Duluth and they also have a polar bear. He was playing catch with a big red ball. Here are some pictures I had from Como Zoo. Now you can see what a magnificent creature polar bears are.

So what is your favorite animal?

It's Monday :(

My weekend was good. Friday I went to my employee party. We got home around 11pm. The kids spent the night at in-laws. Saturday morning I went grocery shopping and then we went to pick the kids up. O really wanted to come home, while X was perfectly happy staying at grandma & grandpa's. Then Saturday night my dad came over for dinner and we watched The Mummy with him. Yesterday we went to Lowe's and I got a big palm tree for my house. I have to repot it because the pot it's in is too small. The palm is about as tall as me if not taller. Other than that I didn't do much. I watched Someone Like You on Hulu. I love that website! I can watch cheesy movies that Dan will never watch with me. Then I made pizza for dinner. Now it's back to work, although I haven't done too much of that. Heroes, Chuck and Medium start a week from tonight.


That's when Heroes starts. Also I heard Chuck will be 3-D, where do I get my glasses? I must investigate this.

No plans for the weekend. Tonight is my employee party and so the kids are spending the night at my in-laws. Other than that we have laundry (like always), clean the house and what not. It's supposed to cool down again this weekend so I don't really plan on going out. Well except for grocery shopping.

Lost - 01/21

The season premiere was last night and it was 2 hours long. It still left many unanswered questions and it had me trying to figure out some logic. My best way to recap this episode is to go by each character or group of characters.

Daniel Faraday - He was on the island before. Back when the Dharma Initiative was starting up and building all their stations. They come across a wall they can't dig through and they get a print out of what behind it and it looks like the lever that Ben turned to move the island. Plus all the workers can drill there and it melts the drill and one of the workers passes or dies with his nose bleeding. I'm assuming this is important. So I'm assuming that Daniel has time traveled somehow since he was on the island that long ago. We are then back to the present and he's on the boat going back to the island. He makes a comment about how they were inside the radius. So he knows that the island has moved. He gets back to the beach and trie…


Lost is on tonight! There's a recap show on before the 2 hour premiere. It recaps all the seasons so far. So I'm planning to watch that too.

First Time

First I'd like to thank everyone for the kind words about my grandma. I'm doing a lot better with it today.

I was going to post about my weekend (the good things) but I was too upset yesterday. We went sledding on Sunday. First time every for me, X and O. We went to park near Dan's parent's house, I can't remember the name of it. Anyhow we stayed for about an hour. We only have two sleds, a saucer sled and a long torpedo sled. We took turn going down with the kids. X when down by himself once but he kind of flipped of when he stopped and he didn't want to do it by himself. We played at the playground for a little bit and then did more sledding. By the time we were done it was lunch time. The kids had so much fun that they were crying when we left. Hopefully we get a chance to go again.

Bad News

First X's goldfish died. He was really sad about it on Sunday and cried. We flushed him down the toilet and X and O said goodbye to him. That fish was about 4-5 inches long and almost 2 years old. Then this morning I got a phone call from my mom that my grandma died. This is the grandma that lives in Guatemala, the one that raised me until I was nine and I called her Mama. She had been sick for a while so we knew it was coming but it still hurts. I really wish I could have been there to see her one last time, but I don't think I could have seen her so sick. I want to remember her how she was when I was younger. I remember her giving me baths when I was really little and making me food. Sending me out to the store to get eggs or things we needed. Giving me extra money so I could get some candy. I remember when she came to visit me here when I was 11. She got to see snow for the first time. She's very old-fashioned and refused to wear pants. So she had stockin…

5 Days

Only five days until Lost is back. It's been so long I've nearly forgotten what happened last season. So let's see if I remember correctly. Sayid, Sun, Jack, Kate, Hurley and Aaron all got off the island. Also Desmond but he went with Penny. The media were calling them "The Oceanic Six" and they get free flying privileges for life. Kate said that Aaron was her son and that she gave birth on the island. She also went to court for what she was arrested for and Jack testified for her and she got off. So now she's living in a nice house with Aaron. Jack proposed to her but he screwed things up when he found out she was doing something that she promised Sawyer she would do. Then at the end we see that Locke died and Ben tells Jack that they all have to go back. We assume that Jin died on the boat, I don't think he really died. Sun had her baby and I forget what she named her. She stood up to her father and basically became his boss. Hee, hee. Sh…

Is it cold enough?

With temps in the last few days being below 0F, many people I know that don't live here have asked me how I can live here. I was wondering that myself this morning when I put gas in my car. I was a big wimp though and payed outside at the pump and got in the car while the gas was pumping. But it's kind of sad that it's been so cold that I haven't let the kids play outside. Even with snowpants, boots, hats and mittens I still think they'll be too cold. X has been asking to play outside and my response is always "It's too cold" but he just thinks I'm being mean. Maybe next week will be warmer and the kids can play outside.

Last night we had Kindergarten Open House. X is very excited to be starting Kindergarten next year and I'm a little sad to see that he is so grown up. In 3 years O will be starting Kindergarten too. Kids do grow up way too fast.

Oh and check it out, I've already read 4 books this year! At this rate I'll probabl…

New Series for me

Last year I read 52 books. It was the first time where I actually kept track of what books I have read and today I counted them. I put them on google docs. So far this year I have finished 1 book. The new book series I am reading is The Southern Vampire Series by Charlaine Harris. She has 8 books with a new one coming out in May. So far I have read 2 of the books, I'm waiting for the 3rd book from the library. I usually don't buy books I just go online to the library and reserved them. Then I pick them up when they're ready. If it an author I already love or a book I really love (such as the Twilight Series) I will purchase the books. So last year HBO turned the first book in the Vampire Series into a show called True Blood. I don't have cable so I was not able to watch it. Plus I hadn't read the book yet. So I finally read the first book and then searched online and found the show online. They have 12 episodes from the first season and I have watche…
