Why is it every day I have plans to do stuff, but by the end of the day, that stuff still isn't done? 

Hey, you there in the back!  I hear you calling me lazy.  I am not lazy.  I recently diagnosed myself with the dread disorder: Couchevisionesia.  So, I can't help myself.  Cuz like it's a real disorder.  It's the reason that every time I sit on the couch in front of the TV I can't remember everything else I have to do.

Like today... I was supposed to clean the kitchen when I got back from errands.  I sat down - just for a minute - and before I realized what was happening my husband was home for lunch.  Then when he went back to work, I thought I could just rest for a second...  and he was home again from work. 

Frasier, Will & Grace, and Old Christine in the morning... According to Jim, that other sitcom I can never remember the name of, and two hours of Grey's Anatomy.  After Grey's, I managed to shake myself out of my stupor and get some photo work done.  Still, if I couldn't remember what I watched, the whole day would be a blur.

Couchevisionesia - it's a killer.  One of these days, they're going to find a big puddle of me melded with the cushions, clutching the remote.

I don't know if there's a cure, but it seems like preventative medicine would be just not to turn the damn thing on.  But then how would I get my Grey's fix???  I can stop watching everything else any time I want, but not that.  Please.

Couchevisionesia.  Ever had it?  How did you get over it?  Or is it like malaria and you never really get over it so much as hope it stays in remission?


  1. We had this dreaded disease. Our only cure was to get rid of our cable TV. The disease got so bad that instead of talking to each other, we'd stare at hours of television episodes and movies we've seen countless times.

    Good luck fighting the good fight!

  2. I do love sitting on my butt more than anything. My weakness is Netflix because of all the movies I've been wanting to see. Sigh!

  3. I suffer from this disease every Sunday. Literally I can't move all day long. It passes on Monday morning, though I sometimes wish it wouldn't. :)

  4. I strictly limit shows I fall in love with. I allow myself Desperate HW, Castle, True Blood and now Game of Thrones. Luckily, some of the HBO ones come on in the summer when the others aren't airing. When I hear other people talk about new TV they love, I try to ignore it and don't let myself get started!
