drive: not really a movie review

October 5, 2011

This past weekend my husband and I went on an Actual Date to the movies, just the two of us. When deciding what to see, we went strictly by the description on my Flixster app, since neither of us get out enough to have heard anything about the current movies out. We chose to see Drive, with Ryan Gosling and Carey Mulligan. It seemed like it’d be a fun action flick, had an 8.4 rating on, and over 90% on Rotten Tomatoes. Sounds promising, right? The reason this isn’t really a movie review is because I don’t deny that it was very well made, and I’m sure many people will love it and even rave about it. (My brother,…

For about a week now I’ve been meaning to get a post up about the front room of our house that I’ve been working on in my spare time. It’s in the middle of its transformation & I thought it would be fun to show you some pictures and ask for advice. I started working on it today, but I’m having a lot of trouble uploading the photos. Since I have a million other (probably more important) things to do today and not much time to do them, I gave up. I’ll try again when I have time, but for now how about a simple life update? It feels like forever since I’ve spent any time here and I miss…

Oh, you want to refinance your house? No problem, everything is in perfect order, you’re guaranteed a huge reduction in payment along with a refund. But wait, what’s this! Two foreclosures in your neighborhood? Hold on just a hop skip. You’ll probably end up getting the refinance, but you might not get the refund and it definitely won’t be for at least…

steps to recovery

July 9, 2010

I’m the kind of tired where I barely have the energy to take care of myself, but since I have to go back to work this weekend to continue taking care of other people, I’m trying to get myself back on my feet today. Step One: Pop some pills. I woke up with a killer headache, and though I usually try to avoid medicine for as long as possible, I didn’t want to deal with it today. Four ibuprofen, down the hatch. Step Two: Take a shower. The only reason I did this was because I was meeting Tabaitha for breakfast. I’m grateful for this not only because I got to see her, but because the shower did a lot…
