A Little Bit of Sanity and A Lot of Chaos: Mom Ramblings #28

Mom Ramblings #28

1. I've been getting up in the morning and running. It's just easier on my day....although harder on my sleep schedule!

2. I've been watching movies on my iPhone while running. I will tell you which ones you should watch. If you want my opinion at all read on....

Country Strong - great movie. Loved it. I thought G.P. was great. And Tim McGraw, well, he's dreamy. And so was the other singer, his name was Beau in the movie.

Morning Glory. Fun movie. Entertaining.

How Do You Know - with Reese Witherspoon and Paul Rudd - TERRIBLE. Seriously. I was so disappointed. There was absolutely no story. And with such a great cast it should have been better.

The Switch - I thought it was cute. Kind of fun. But, I like like those kinds of movies.

The Social Network - Good. That's all I'm going to say, because I have some other opinions, and I'm sensitive to people's feelings.....hmmmm...

Love and Other Drugs - Loved. Loved. Loved. This was a great movie.

That's it. For what it's worth!

3. More crap you probably don't need to know - my foot hurts. And it makes me feel old.

4. I still have baby fever.

5. The neighbors gave us their swing set. Now I don't have to put money in an envelope to save for a swing set, so I changed that envelope to a water softener. That's right. Saving for a swing set came before a water softener. Priorities people!

6. My craft closet is only slightly messier than my living room right now. I have 4 loads of unfolded laundry that needs to be folded. One of the loads sat in the washing machine for a full day, and it really needed to be rewashed but I decided to try and dry it anyway, it didn't work, and it smells musty, so now I have 4 loads of clean laundry and 1 of those needs to be rewashed....crap.

7. It's 9:00 and I've had 2 Diet Cokes. Judge all you want. I don't care.

8. Anyone know where I can get a jute/fake jute runner for under $50?

9. Yesterday was 72. Today I'm wearing a wool sweater. Yuck.

10. Anyone want to come and put a swing set together?

11. I haven't even thought about Easter candy and egg hunts.

12. We can park in our garage. That's big. Did you see the post the other day about not being able to see our garage floor?

13. My fingernails still have stain on them from a piece I did yesterday. May be one of my most favorite pieces I've done. I'll show you tomorrow.

14. Happy Thirsty Thursday. Nickle taps at the DownUnder, a bar in the town where I went to college. I didn't go once....

How do you watch movies while you're running?? I'd kill myself! I had to stop listening to podcasts while I was jogging because I was listening to Ricky Gervais and I would get to laughing so hard I couldn't jog anymore. Counterproductive. ;)

1. It's 10 a.m. and I'm on my second Mountain Dew, so no judgement here.

2. I just "Red Boxed" Morning Glory and How Do You Know this past weekend and I agree with your assessments. Watched Love and Other Drugs a few weeks ago and liked it, although was kind of surprised by Anne Hathaway's constant nudity. It was weird and not altogether necessary to the storyline, in my opinion. Not against nudity in films, but it struck me as odd in this one.

Oh course you didn't go once. So, how many times did you really go to
the DownUnder?

I haven't seen any of those movie. I'm am so behind.

Wish my son would go for that cinnamon color in his room. 17 yr olds can be so fussy.

Ohh I just saw a jute runner at Meijer by Katie Brown. So cute - but it did have some stenciling on it and I'm not sure if you were looking for plain or not. Oh and just found out if you look online at Meijer the price of things are way less! I was also looking at this twig runner by her and in the store it was $18 - online $13.
