Keep your mind wide open

I was going to apologize again for not updating but I think you all know why it's not happening so often and I hope you're ok with it and not upset with me. So from now on when I go for long stretches like this know that the first thing on my mind is to say I'm sorry even though you're not reading it.

Ok now that that's done, on with what's been going on.

Thursday night I had a candle party to go to. I had mixed feelings about going. It was for one of my coworkers and being new I wasn't sure if I wanted to go somewhere that I didn't know anyone or at least not very well. But on the other hand I really like the chick that was throwing it and I love candles. So I went. I had a blast, mainly because of another chick we work with. She was just completely giddy and was cracking jokes the whole night. I haven't ordered anything yet because I want way to much. So tonight or tomorrow I'll have to add everything up that I want and then start deleting items. I'm sure the initial cost is going to be several hundred dollars.

Friday night we went to see Bridge of Terabithia with HD's dad, stepmom, her sister and HD's nephew. It's a very good movie but don't let those ads fool you. They all talk about how "heartwarming" it is. Weeell, it's not a complete lie. It is heartwarming up until they rip your heart out of you near the end. I had tears just streaming down my face so did the other ladies and HD was all choked up too. But it is a good movie though, well worth watching.

Saturday we were supposed to go shopping for HD's youngest sister's baby shower on Sunday. I did the grocery shopping while he was supposed to be getting himself ready to go do the gift shopping with me afterward. I got home and he wasn't ready to go, he was still on the computer. Several hours later I say that if we're going we should leave now. But another hour passes and we still haven't left yet. So we blew it off to do Sunday morning. So Saturday we did the same as we did on Valentine's Day. Lazed around catching up on tv shows.

Sunday we got our asses out of bed to do the shopping. I went to Babies R Us for her gift and then stopped off at Barnes & Noble for a really cool Scrabble game. He was working on a poem that his mom created that she wanted us to print on some fancy paper so she could frame it when we got to the party. So he had to run out and get the fancy paper. He went to Hallmark while I went to B.R.US. We were a little late to the party but not much. Yep, you read that right, WE were a little late. His sister had a coed party. About 7 guys were there to about 21 girls. She got a shit load of stuff, we figured close to two thousand dollars worth of shit.

Sunday night we got home and vegged in front of the tv again. Why yes, we are home bodies, we watch way way way too much tv. But then, we did also watch Barnyard. It wasn't even 3 minutes into the movie when I paused to say that I was glad we didn't buy it. Got it through our Netflix. I mean it wasn't bad, had some pretty funny parts, but nowhere near as good as some of the other kids movies that are out there.

I told him that tonight I get to have the computer for at least a couple hours to be able to come on here and update and go read a site or two. I think we're going to have to come up with some kind of timeshare. It makes the most sense for me to be able to get on the 1st part of the evening and then him the 2nd half. Mainly because every couple of days he doesn't have to get up in the morning to go to work so he can stay up later than I can. Who knows what'll happen but something has too. I get a little antsy when I can't get on. And I feel horrible that I'm not keeping up with my favorite sites. I know I'm losing out on some pretty good posts. So now I'm off to at least read one of them.

Bridge to Terabithia was one of my favorite books growing up. I was a little scared of the movie being so heartwarming because that is not how I remembered the story going. Glad to know they ripped out some hearts.

I didn't know until the beginning credits that it was based on a book. After watching I told HD that I now want to read the book to see what they did or didn't change. You never hear of a movie being worse than a book (in that way anyway) so I figured the same thing must have happened in the book. Now I want to know how it was done.

Yep, heart torn right out, with no warning either.

But still a very good movie, definitely recommended.
