Michigan Girl is back

I'm back from a wonderful two-week vacation with our family in Charlotte, North Carolina. I expected to post a bit more than I did while on vacation, but I'll get back on track now. Two weeks away from work and major responsibilities was so great. Now it's back to reality, hopefully a bit more refreshed.

I think I've reached about 20 blogs in a little over a month with a little over 600 views. I'm happy with the feedback on Twitter, Facebook, and through emails. Please feel free to post responses, comments, questions right on the site. I look forward to more interaction with my readers and more feedback.

I have many topics that cross my mind each day, unfortunately, I don't get the time to write them all down. Many come to me in the morning when I'm getting ready for work. I'm not sure about everyone else, but I do some of my best thinking in the shower. I never have the ability to get those thoughts or ideas documented though, so I have to rely on my memory most of the time.

My husband and I are pretty excited this week as we are TV junkies and it's fall premiere week. We are looking forward to the return of some of our favorite shows as well as the premieres of many new shows.

I was watching the Emmy's and I love the skit where the host is so overwhelmed with all the TV shows that he starts doing nothing but watching TV, even struggling to keep up with his hygiene in order to catch up on TV. I feel like that sometimes. Someday, we plan to watch Sons of Anarchy, Breaking Bad, and catch up on shows that I've fell off track on and never got back to like Nip Tuck and Awkward. The list is so long but luckily we have options to catch up now through On Demand, Streaming, or Netflix DVD rentals when we are ready.

I think the surge of great TV shows expanding to all the cable channels has added significantly to the amount of shows out there. making it difficult to keep up. With so many successful shows, the networks are so quick to cut a show with sub-par or dropping ratings. So many great shows with potential have gotten the axe too quickly.

I'm not home for daytime TV, but I'm even starting to get hooked on a daytime show. The talk show The Real is one of my favorite shows. I love the ladies of The Real. I have 28 episodes saved on the DVR - ridiculous. I thought I'd have a chance to catch up on a little more of them over the summer while the show was on a break, but I didn't.

Good luck to those trying to keep up and kudos to those that rarely watch tv and spend their time doing much more productive activities!
