Just random things we have been doing or I've been thinking-hopefully I'll just stop thinking about the books I've read now that I've written it down.
**I just finished a book. I didn't realize it was going to be a sad book when I started reading it. Everything was going really well (too well apparently). A good woman, married to a good man (they both have their flaws) but a good marriage. It wasn't until like page 100 that you find out that she had beat cancer 4 years before. I should have put it down there. She gets cancer again and dies. I wept and wept for a fictional family.
**On the Today Show, I saw they were going to be making a movie of a book I read recently, Sarah's Key. There is no way I will watch that movie. It was sad enough to read it in a book there is NO way that I could watch it played out on the movie screen. It takes place during the Jewish Roundup in France. A little girl locks her brother in a cupboard to keep him safe. She takes the key with her but she didn't return that night....or anytime soon. So you watch her go through that pain of trying to get back and how it haunts her. SOOOO sad. I don't want to make you not want to watch it or read it but just know its sad.
*We're enjoying watching the Marriage Ref online. It's pretty funny. And I love that it doesn't degrade marriage either. Couples share their argument and then three comedians decide who's right. Check it out.
*Boo has come to love Blue's Clues. She asks for it a couple of times daily. She has a notebook and crayon that she pulls out when its time to draw Blue's clues in the notebook. It is so funny. And she sits in her little yellow "thinking chair". She'll try to dance to the songs. I LOVE it.
*I got 6 t-shirts for $10 at Younkers the other day! Score! I love good deals combined with associate discounts and coupons! One of the shirts is oranged striped. I told GG that I feel like Steve's counsin (from Blue's clues, he wears an green striped shirt, if you don't know). Haha. But its cute and it was only $1.90.
Just a few more weeks of Summer...well one really. GG starts football stuff up beginning of August. :( It's been a pretty good summer. Boo and I will have to come up with some fun activities and crafts (for me) to keep us busy this fall.
