Is Lost Really Over?

Thursday, January 27, 2011
We finished Season 6 of Lost. The SERIES Finale. I cried like a baby. In part because it was a REALLY good episode and partly because the end of Lost is the end of an era. David and I started watching this show right after we were married.

I remember the first Season, First episode. We borrowed Bad and Janells house. They must've been out of town cause it was just David, Jacob, Hannah and I. We had our own little marathon right in their living room (Thanks guys!). This was back when we lived in a house on wheels.

How can you not love that show? Some might call it risque. Wait. No. They don't. Cause there's nothing risque about it. It's all about love, jungles, others and the occasional bikini scene. Even those are scarce. I can't even remember there being any. But then again, I have that gift. The one of not being able to remember sex scenes or eff words. Maybe it's that, or quoting my friend,"I don't have a soul." (She wasn't saying that in reference to me, she was saying it in reference to herself. lol)

I asked David who his favorite character is. He couldn't say. He had a top 5. He returned the question and I thought for sure I could answer. It is Hurley. But then again who doesn't love Sayid? Even if he does kill people. Ooooh, murder. Yes that makes it risque I guess. And then there's Kate, and Charlie, and Sayer. I love them all. There's no playing favorites here. Who is your favorite character?

Funny scene from The Show (it deserves caps lock). So they end up going back in time. Hugo and Miles are hanging out. Hurley has a notebook he's writing in that Miles steals from him.

"Lost: Some Like It Hoth (#5.13)" (2009)

Miles Straume: [referring to Hugo's movie script] What the hell is this?
Hugo 'Hurley' Reyes: I'm writing "Empire Strikes Back."
Miles Straume: Uh, I'm sorry. What?
Hugo 'Hurley' Reyes: It's 1977, right? So "Star Wars" just came out. And pretty soon, George Lucas is gonna look for a sequel. I've seen "Empire" like 200 times, so I figured I'd made life easier and send him the script... with a couple improvements.
Hugo 'Hurley' Reyes: [to Miles] In "Empire", Luke found out Vader was his father, but instead of putting away his lightsaber and talking about it, he overreacted and got his hand cut off. I mean, they worked it out eventually, but at what cost? Another Death Star was destroyed, Boba Fett got eaten by the Sarlacc, and we got the Ewoks. It all could've been avoided if they just, you know, communicated. And let's face it, the Ewoks sucked, dude.

So funny. You have to watch the show to really understand why Hurley is so freakin' funny.

I guess it's back to Heros for us. When we were first married we watched Alias, and then 24 and then Lost. Thank goodness we still have 24.

The Place I'm In

It's hard to be happy for someone when I can't be happy with myself. I've been on sabbatical. I'm behind on reading (and writing) blogs because I don't want to read about people and their awesomeness. It's selfish I know.

Why do we all pretend everything is okay when it's not?

David and I are finishing up Season 6 of Lost (the tv show). They throw Desmond into a well. It's not deep so that any one who peers over the edge can see him. He can't get out though.

Thats how I feel.

I realize that I am experiencing some anxiety/depression with the new changes in my life (staying home, working less). I also realize that what I am feeling is what I feel when I am depressed. It's hard to explain when you haven't experienced it yourself. They are feelings of doom, and sadness, and tiredness.

It's like I'm 2 different people. Not crazy-style multiple personalities type, but there is depression-me and then there is me me. I don't know if I need more medication or if I just need to snap out of it and I think that's where my problem is.

For Christmas I got a gym membership. But guess what? I don't have it! It was implied that I didn't get anything for Christmas because that's what I wanted. Well, it's January 18th and its still not here. I blame circumstances, and my husband. It was his job! (He knows that by the way). Also, why am I the only one that ever mentions even slight irritation towards my husband? Weird.

Well, I think I'll go now. I'm probably gonna mope. Or watch TV. Or play trains with the kids.

It's a new year, a time to start fresh. To renew our spirits and our minds. Bleh... I don't believe in that crap. I totally get it, but I don't believe in it. I DO get the feeling of freshness and what-not. But resolutions? Who keeps them... ALL YEAR?

I am feeling a little anxious this week. Today David started school/Army (again) at the rich kid school. Gone at 5 a.m. home... sometime in the evening. It's the first time I've been a sort-of real stay at home mom in a long time. I've gone down to working only 1 day a week. It's really intense. The homeyness of it all.

Today was successful. We only had one crappy pull-up. It makes me sad that Jackson is not yet poopy trained. We've resorted back to pull-up panties since I got tired of cleaning shiv off the floor, my hands and clothes. Ew. It's not even baby poo, it's big kid poop. And that's gross.

My kids are better for me than they are for David. It's incredibly weird to have him come home and see my little angels turn into monsters right before my eyes. Weird. BUT this is not true all the time. I think God blessed me with a great day today because if I started these next 4 months off with a bad bad time, I probably would have run away. For real.

Today was successful. I am thankful. I don't think they even cried. Okay fine, maybe a little. But that's only because Sadie destroyed Jackson's tracks (on purpose with a sly sassy smile). And so Sadie went to time out ensuing more crying. "Mommy, me me have ta put some pieces tracks" said Jackson. Me me is his word for "I".

I have so many ideas for this here blog. It's gonna be a good time.
