On Monday nights there are three shows I enjoy, but two of them wrapped up this week. As corny as it is, our whole family really enjoys watching American Gladiators (and Hubby and I remember the original show!). My favorite Gladiator is Wolf.
We also watch Nashville Star on Mondays, and it, too, had its season finale this week. We were so happy when Melissa won!!The other Monday night show, Saving Grace, is not for kids - we DVR it and Hubby and I watch it after they go to bed. But it's a great show - gritty, but great storylines and characters. We really enjoy it. Holly Hunter does an excellent job (and I love to hear her talk!).
Tuesday is Little Son's favorite show - Wipeout. When I first saw this I thought it was going to be so stupid, but I cracked up the whole time and now I don't miss an episode! Little Son loves it so much that he even built a working Sweeper out of Legos (I was impressed!). Daughter hates the show, but the rest of us laugh our heads off every time we watch it. And laughter is good, even if it's at someone else's expense sometimes. Ha
Wednesdays bring Greatest American Dog. I LOVE dogs, and I love this show! It's another show the whole family watches together, and we're rooting for Bill and Star.
I cried this week when Brandy and Beacon went home.
Also on Wednesdays is So You Think You Can Dance - with results on Thursdays. Tonight was the finale, and I couldn't be happier with the winner - congratulations to fellow Texan Joshua! For a mostly untrained street dancer, you stepped up to the challenges thrown at you and you were amazing! You deserve the top spot!
Watching the dancing has made me realize how much I miss it. It's so much a part of who I am. I don't miss teaching it, but I miss doing it. Perhaps this fall I'll look into taking a class - maybe something I've never tried, like ballroom dancing. That would be so fun! Then maybe someday I can be on my other favorite show that starts back up September 22 - Dancing With the Stars!
