In the Meantime & HURT LOCKER

July 31st, 2010 >> Educational, Movie Mania

Since my last post I have been really busy with a number of things.  I have been working more hours at work to earn some extra money to play and trying to keep afloat with my school work.  I am making an A in both of my classes and I am very excited I only have two more weeks left in the summer session.  Then, one more class to take in the Fall and I will have earned a Bachelor’s in Allied Health from Widener University.

I have been playing catch up with the chores around the house, brushing and bathing my three dogs, and buying a few new pieces of clothing and jewelry to add to my collection.   I needed some fashion updating, but just a hint of it.

In addition, I have been trying to narrow down the junk accumulating in my house and get rid of a bunch of unnecessary things.  So far I have a pretty big stack of belongings to hopefully sell in a future garage sale.

I have also watched a few movies, one in particular is Hurt Locker.  I really enjoyed this movie.  It was very predictable in my opinion, but it was incredibly well done.  It makes you feel like you are actually there and I love movies that suck you in like that.

Howe Reunion at Tanglewood Resort

This last weekend Matt and I went to the Tanglewood Resort north of Dallas, TX for my family reunion.  It was with the Howe Family on my mothers side.  We had a really great time even though we were only there for a day and a half.  It was nice to see everyone and wish we could see each other more often.  They are a fun bunch of people and even better because I am apart of it.  I am very grateful we were all able to come together this weekend and hang out.  Pictures to come…

Sherlock Holmes

So, it took Matt and I three times to finally watch Sherlock Holmes.  The first time we saw an hour and was exhausted, then watched the first hour again the next night and was exhausted.  Finally, we watched the entire movie.  I have to say it was a good movie, but unusual.  I found it hard to follow exactly what was going on at first, but then all came together.  I loved the mystery in it and the clues.
