I've got 2/3 of round five behind me. As far as my *treasure hunt* goes, it's been a pretty good week. It helped that the American Idol finale was last night. Crazy storms swept through Dayton and happily for me, we were on the north side of the storms. We had a bit of rain and thunder but that was about it. Sadly, two of my fun friends who text with me through the show lost power. Can you even imagine? Hmph.
Back in January when the season started, I didn't know if I would be able to watch the season with out my mom. And then cancer struck. And then the judges disappointed me, as did all of the inappropriateness on the results nights. But I'm nothing if not faithful. And in the end, I have to say that I'm happy to call Scotty my new American Idol. I hope he has a better career than my past three Idols. In fact, I'm not sure we even heard from Lee this season on the show (can anyone confirm that for me?) It's weird how being the Idol doesn't mean much.
But I did appreciate how gracious of a winner he was last night. I hope *fame* doesn't turn his path. Time will tell.
I'm not much of a sport fan. But I think this is what it must feel like the Monday after the Super Bowl. Now what to do? What to watch? What to talk about? (Because a girl can not live on cancer posts alone!) I am ashamed to say I did tune in to the Bachelorette on Monday. I said I wouldn't. Ashley isn't too interesting to me, but some friends watch... so I will too. (Oh the peer pressure.) Last summer I got into Big Brother (can you even believe I admit to this trash?) Does anyone else have another show that I can get into? In summers past I've tried "I'm a Celebrity, Get Me Outta Here" and "Japanese Game Show." So, as you can see, I'm willing to try anything. Except a dance show. I just can't seem to get into the dance shows.
I'm looking forward to Memorial Day weekend. Maybe a cookout? Maybe the outdoor pool? I love the *unofficial kickoff to summer.* Chemo is delayed until Tuesday because of the holiday. After Tuesday there's ONE MORE ROUND. Thanks for praying me to this end. It's so close I can almost taste it! One day at a time, kids, one day at a time.
