You Are My Passion for Life

Ah yesterday was nice. Joe and I went out and had dinner at Chili's. I love Chili's, seems like we never go. Plus I got my blog look updated! I will say, doing the blog update made me realize I need to scrap more, I'm getting rusty. That is definitely something I will be working on. And a big THANK YOU to everyone those who commented and let me know it looks ok with different screens. Anyone noticing a problem, a comment would be mucho appreciated.

Tonight we are driving to visit my younger sister Kelley in her new rent house. Her and her husband David just got settled and we're driving the almost 3 hours to housewarm their house :) We'll get back to town late, but I get to see my too-adorable niece Caitlyn (she's 21 months) and her big brother Jacob. Jake is a hoot, he's three and a half and I love that (as the oldest) he's the first of my sisters' offspring to call me "Aunt Randi" and that is sweet to hear :)

And now about the freebie: Yesterday I touched on my past Days of Our Lives addiction - and I learned I wasn't the only one staying up to watch videotaped episodes! :)
Now onward to adulthood!

The summer before my senior year of high school, a new soap was launched that followed Days. It was called Passions and at first I thought it was SUPER lame, I was still a Days fan. I caught a few episodes of Passions while I lived at home, but it wasn't until I was moved out and married that I really caught the bug.

And all the while I would watch it, I would make fun of it. Of the plots, characters, and of myself for sitting there drinking it in. My best friend Stephanie was also a fan and my cousin-in-law Allison as well. Lots of days would see me (at 1:00pm on the dot) on the couch with my phone pressed to my ear talking to one or the other while I watched. I was all about Luis, what was he doing with Sheridan? Oh and Theresa and Ethan! That monkey-nurse Precious! And that witch Tabatha and her little Timmy! I continued to watch Days most days (hehe), but Passions had a real hold on me.

So after yesterday's post, I just had to offer this one. The fonts aren't right, but if you were a fan you get the gist. And even if you weren't, it's still a lovely sentiment:


These days I don't watch soaps. I went through a brief Dr. Phil phase (LOL), but mostly I don't watch daytime TV anymore. I actually went to high school with a guy who is on As the World Turns, he plays Zac Finn. But if I picked up a soap, I know it would be Days again, I feel like the characters are old acquaintances (dare I say friends? LOL). And after all this talk about it, I have a feeling I might just find myself sucked back in! :)
