Another drive-by post to wish you a Happy Saturday!
My friend and I both enjoyed the movie The Help
very much. Although they tweaked a bit and left out a few things due to time constraints, I thought that it was a pretty great adaptation of an enthralling book, especially for a novice screenwriter/director. I laughed and I cried, and I was mesmerized by the amazing performances of these powerhouse women. And as the icing on the proverbial cake.....the Breaking Dawn Part 1 trailer was the first preview shown!!!
Robward (and his beautiful back) looked glorious on the big screen, and the wedding scenes, and Robward and Krisella canoodling on the streets of Brazil, and Robward throwing Jacob across the room....
I'm not sure we'll survive this movie, ladies.
You all would be very impressed at how I kept the bouncing in my seat and whimpering to a minimum when that Summit logo first appeared onscreen.
My friend and I didn't want to draw undue attention to ourselves in the middle of a packed theater full of of people who are pretty much indifferent to the Twilight phenomenon.Newjen~
Loved your Robdream, your lucky girl! Thanks for sharing. I'm sure you definitely tried to go back to sleep to finish off that
particular dream. Missp
~ Glad to hear your officially survived the first week of school with your wonderful 5th graders. Hope you do find time to get some rest this weekend, in between all your social events and obligations. Amy~
Enjoy the rest of your camping vacation with your family. How's the weather, and how do you guys stay cool and comfortable while you camp?Susie~
I'm glad you (mostly) finished your online course. I'm sorry to hear your friend was sort of unaffected by reading Twilight
. It's not for everybody, and at least she gave it a try, although I understand you would like to be able to share with her your unabashed love for this series. What a great and practical gift for SonnyBoy from his workmates! I'm sure he'll put that gift certificate to good use as well, with school supplies and/or dorm room stuff. I loved The Help
(as I mentioned above) and look forward to discussing it in greater detail. It kind of made me want to read the book again, just to see exactly where and how the movie deviated from the book. As far as homework and time management skills go, my daughter is already pretty good with that as you mentioned (better than my son for sure). She's working on her homework this morning for Monday, and will work tomorrow on some homework for later in the week to try and get ahead a little. Now with my son.....that's another story, and is a little more like pulling teeth.
I'm glad to hear you'lll have your FIL's car soon, even though you enjoyed renting the Cube. Yes, Divergent
is geared toward a young adult audience, but might be enjoyed by a more widespread audience. I think Hubs is even going to give it a try, as he actually enjoyed reading The Hunger Games series.Rachel
~ I don't blame you for waiting a bit to share the exciting news about the baby with your kiddos (well... your oldest, as Baby Boy really won't know the difference as you said
). We waited until after the first trimester to generally spread the good news around, as well. You asked about "The Talk". We've discussed all this with my 11-year old daughter, but not yet with my 9-year old son. He seems pretty clueless and unaware of any of it just yet, and I'm okay with that.
The research you've been pursuing about your family and their history sounds very interesting and insightful, and I can imagine that it would make you a bit emotional, especially with those pregnancy hormones raging.
Hello to Ginnie, Ann Marie, Marielle, Caryn
