What I've Been....


I am discovering that I've got to be better about my time management. I realize how many hours go by in the day where I don't accomplish anything or not much of anything at least. I'm trying to get better about getting up earlier and not "lolly-gaggin'" around! Lol! I get up and get focused and I accomplish so much more. Not to mention I just feel like I've got so much going lately that if I don't learn to manage my time better I'm always going to feel like I'm behind!


I am currently listening to two amazing by Elbow and one by Jars of Clay. The songs from Jars of Clay feature a lot of artists, some I know of like Mac Powell from Third Day, others I'm not sure who they are. But it's another great album from JOC. They have a new sound for every album and this one does not disappoint!
The album by Elbow I've been raving about for several weeks now! I just love it....pretty much every song has become a "favorite"!


I am desperately trying to finish up Frankenstein: City of Night by Dean Koontz. I've read the first one and loved it and Beej found me the third book in the series at a thrift store so I had to go get this one from the library. I'm about half way through and it's another great book! I just haven't been taking the time to read like I should so I'm getting through it slowly.


I've been watching a lot of great movies lately. My mother in law and I went and saw Beastly the other night and it was so so good! I wasn't sure to be honest, I loved the previews but I wasn't sure if it would be cheesy or not. And it wasn't. At all. I want to see it again! The story was adorable, the love was beautiful, etc. It was just a great movie all around. Not to mention the soundtrack was great too - I really want to get it!

I mentioned a week or so ago that I saw Red Riding Hood with my sister and it too was super good! I was really pleased with it. The director of Twilight directed this one too and alot of the lighting and angles were similar and I really liked it alot. The plot was great and my sis and I had NO clue until the end who was who! Great movie, great actors, great story!

I have really been excited about seeing Hereafter with Matt Damon. He's always such a great actor and this movie looked deep and moving. So last night we rented it and watched it. First of all, it's long. Second of all, it's slow. Third, it's confusing. Four, it just ends. Not good, not bad really. It just ends. I was disappointed. Really disappointed. Not nearly as good as I hoped or thought. I wouldn't recommend it to be honest. Blah.

Tonight we are going to watch Gladiator. I've never seen it although I've heard it's a great movie. Our pastor actually played a song from the movie this morning. It has a great story behind it and it really intrigued me and made me want to see the movie so we ran by the movie store after church and lunch and grabbed it to watch tonight. So in about thirty minutes I'm putting my rowdy four year old to bed and curling up on the couch to watch it!

  1. I can't wait to hear how you like "Gladiator." It is definitely one of my all time fave movies!! I am desperate to go see "Beastly!!" My sis just came in my room and handed me a $25 iTunes card that she didn't want, so maybe, just maybe that new Elbow album will be playing in my room soon!
