Why My Friends Call Me Weird

I have a confession to make. I am EXTREMELY stressed out! Why, you ask? Is it because I am moving very soon and have not started packing? Nope. Is it because my last day of work is tomorrow, and I have to leave the best job EVER? Nope.

Ya'll, fall TV starts very soon, and I have not made my schedule yet. How will I function if I do not make sure that my shows do not overlap and if I do not double check to make sure everything is being appropriately recorded by the DVR?

Sigh. It keeps me up at night really. Am I the only person who does this? Usually, I start by visiting all of the network websites. Frankly, since cable shows have started getting better, it's a little hard to balance it all, but I manage. I make a list of everything I want to continue watching from previous seasons, as well as anything new that looks promising. Then, I make a weekly chart and plug everything in to make sure it's all going to work.

The DVR will record two things at once, but occasionally three things come on at the same time. I promise you I don't watch that much TV, but I guarantee you that if I only watched three shows, they would all come on the exact night and time as each other. So, really, the weekly chart is the most important step. If you mess this up, you'll regret it all the way until sweeps week.

Finally, I look up all the season premiere dates and times of things I watch and write them on my calendar. Then, I just sit back and wait for the fun to start.

Anyways, I am sure you can relate, and now that you have read this you are off to start your show chart. Anyone? Seriously, anyone?

I love the new blog! If you want to take a break from show charts you are more than welcome to update mine!

You should get ATT Uverse b/c you can record up to 3 shows at a time plus watch one. It's amazing and saves me from having a nervous breakdown b/c I might miss one of my gazillion shows that I watch. :)

The worst part of all this? You won't be able to record shows while you are moving...AND you will probably lose all the recorded shows during the move. Just thought I would give you something else to stress about!
