The Secret Life of the American Teenager


This is what I did all day yesterday; watched almost the whole
thing.  We're so tired from all the store moving that my husband
watched football all day; Kendall read a book all day (yes!); and I,
well, I watched The Secret Life of the American Teenager...all
day.  from 2 pm to 9 pm.  7 hours of watching tv.  Can
you believe that?  And I kinda liked it, too.  Although if I
hear the 15 year old boy tell the 15 year old girl how much he loves her
one more time....ugh (he's NOT the father of her baby).  Kendall
told me she'd been watching it & I thought I should know what was
going on.  Good thing, too.  It's about a 15 year old who gets
pregnant the first time she has sex, if you can call it that, &
what it does to her life & her family & friends.  It
certainly doesn't glorify it.  As a matter of fact, it shows the
consequences of their actions.  Gives you a different perspective
on teenagers.  Actually, it made me realize that teenagers today
are no different than we were...which kinda scares me.  Don't get
me wrong.  I was a good kid.  But I did some things my parents
still don't know about...nor will they.  I just have to hope that
Kendall has a good head on her shoulders & will make good
choices.  Anyway, now that I'm sucked in, you'll know where to find
me tonight....sitting in front of the tv watching the season
premiere...of a teenager show.  Nice.

And before I forget, this is what my husband did Saturday (an early birthday present from my brother)

Great present!  They love the Cardinal's, win or lose, but they
love them even more because they won!  My husband said that the
crowd at the stadium was unbelievable!  So fun! 

And this is where they sat:

  1. Hey Kirsten,
    I took a picture of Don and your brother from where I was sitting to
    give to you. The picture...Well to be honest...The picture looks like
    looking at a picture book called "Where is Waldo" Except its more like
    "Where is Don!" (Makes for a great page)
    I will give it to you as soon as I get my pictures developed.
    Go Cards!!
