not all its cracked up to be
Tonight was my "Mommy's Night Off" night. No kids. No husband. No one calling. No where to go. It was great...for a bit. I'm sitting here, between loads of laundry and movies and I realized some thing. I was alone. And it was lonely. Heaven help me for saying that, but I was, am, down-right lonely. If they are gone for a few hours, that is one thing, but I won't see Sierra and Savannah until some time tomorrow afternoon, and Stephanie and Don won't be home until around 9 p.m. It's just so weird. Don't get me wrong, I have needed this quiet time in a major way, but its just not all its cracked up to be. If I could get the whole family to be here, and quiet, that would kill to birds with one stone lol.
Tooth And Nail- Watch it if you are into the "8 Movies To Die For" thing, like I am. If you aren't, don't. Synopsis: No gas=cannibals lead by blond bimbo with Rider Strong thrown in for good measure.
Storm Warning- Not horrible, but not great. If you want an Aussie slash movie, I'd go for Wolf Creek instead. Synopsis: Petite French woman who admits "I am not a fighter!" finds her inner MacGuyver while husband gets his butt kicked icky pot farm owners. If you figure out how she gets that bottle in there, you let me know, K?
Mr. Magorium's Wonder Emporium- Wonderful, wonderful, wonderful movie. I am not a huge Dustin Hoffman fan, but he's fantastic in this. It made me laugh, it made me cry, it made me think and be grateful. All of this from a movie about a magical toy store. Synopsis: Finding the spark in everyone and keeping the magic alive makes for a satisfying life.
Lars and The Real Girl- Sweet movie, especially if you are a read-between-the-line type like me. If you aren't, like my husband, you'll never get it. Synopsis: Just watch it, believe me.
Cloverfield- Sucked, nuf said. Synopsis: Alcohol, high heels, aliens, Manhattan, "Blair Witch" bouncy video. Whoopee.
Teeth- Err, yeah. Gross, but not in a blood and guts way. If there is a man in your life that you want to send a warning to, this is the one to watch. Synopsis: Choose your partners carefully. Very very carefully.
There you go. I'm going to take some Melatonin and try to get some sleep...alone. No, your eyes do not decieve you. It's almost 2 a.m. Sad, eh.
Oh, one more thing. I do believe that the bead cubby is complete for now. I have a few pictures to put up tomorrow, and then I shall wait and see what it says to me next. It's lonely for some DOTD stuff, but that will have to wait.
Until next time,
