Just as I suspected, there were no earthquakes of magnitude, the sky did not fall and the world did not come to an end yesterday–not even for the non-believers. How could the world come to an end before the basketball playoffs are over? Or before America decides between Scotty and Lauren. Who WILL be the next American Idol? What about Apprentice tonight? How can the world possibly come to the end in the midst of the television season ending? Really? If there is a g-d, wouldn’t she (or he) give Oprah a chance to air her final 3 shows? I mean, we are talking Oprah. She certainly believes. Would g-d have taken her off the face of this earth without finishing her work?
And above and beyond everything else, it would have been really sad if we never got to see who takes the title of Season 11 Biggest Loser. Let’s face it, I have priorities and when it comes to TV finales, this one is it. I will be watching it on DVR after classes Tuesday night. Looking at about 9pm. I think the regulars will be joining me for our ritual, and another season of “guess his or her weight now.” Lots of tears will be shed. I can hardly wait. While Olivia has been my pick since week 1, I think I would rather see her sister, Hannah, take the whole thing. Somehow I feel that Hannah has walked in Olivia’s shadow (a once very big shadow!) and would benefit most from the big win. Now that we know the world ISN’T ready to come to an end, I can rest knowing we WILL see who stands beneath the falling confetti!!
Before I sign off for a relaxing Sunday with Mitch, I just wanted to say thanks again to all my SilverSneakers students for your ability to roll with the punches and be so supportive during our move to Tamarac. The first 2 weeks went really well and I am very grateful to you for your support and proud of you for caring so much about your health and wellness. Thanks to Rita for thinking of me while cruising. You do know what I love…coffee and collecting peace 🙂 I look forward to hearing about your trip, seeing your pictures and checking out the food at The Green Wave later this week! And thanks to Erica and Jeff for also bringing more peace into our life, this weekend.
Have a great Sunday. Much love…
