Friday night ramblings

David and I just finished watching Repo Men with Jude Law and Forest Whitaker.  The ending came out of no where.  Just when I was satisfied that the movie came full circle and was neatly tied up in a bow; the ending changed and I was left going "HUH?".  I love movies that make me think...but kinda wish this one had ended with a nice, fluffy ending.  Although it really wasn't a nice, fluffy movie.

Jude Law?  WOW!  Never really gave much thought to him till tonight.  He's HOT.  WOW!  (not as hot as my beloved Ben...but a real close second).

Forest Whitaker?  Dang, he is so talented.  I don't think I have seen him in anything that I haven't liked.

One thing, I think my husband loves about me is I love action movies.  Matter of fact, most of our movie dates are action movies.  He has no problem watching chick flicks, but we usually reserve those for watching at home.  I prefer to see the action movies on the big, movie screen.  But the older I get the more I love action movies without all the blood and guts.  Repo Men had plenty of it...got me a bit squeamish at times.  But I thought it was good. The concept of repo'ing organs when the paitent can't pay for them; kind makes me nervous though................

Did you hear they Transformers 3 is in 3D?  WOOHOO......just gotta wait till July!

UPDATE:  Yes, I am a dork....I realized that I posted Friday Night Ramblings....on SATURDAY night.  OOPS, a day late and a dollar short.....

Drama Free Zone

This is one of those things that is going around every ones Facebook status. I like it!

There comes a time in life, where you walk away from all the drama and the people who create it. You surround yourself with people who make you make laugh, forget about the bad, and focus on the good. So love the ones who treat you right, and forget about the ones who dont. Life is too short to not be happy.


Just one of the things I am working on this year.

One extreme to another...

I had to leave these beautiful surroundings, on Friday....

 To come home to these beautiful surroundings.

Amazing what a day...and two states distances...can make! 
 I think I am glad I came home to snow and not gloomy rain! :-)

What a day!!!

I just gotta vent about my day yesterday!

We are having a snow storm. Dylan's car has been broke down for a few months so he occasionally borrows one of ours. (We have Davids truck and Kayleighs old Neon). Well Saturday night he was in the Neon and the tires are really bad on it and should not be driven in the snow. He was going around one of the roundabouts and slid into a curb and cracked a rim. I still don't know how bad it is, since he parked it at a friends house till the snow melts. (it won't make it up our driveway). So David has the truck to go back and forth to work (gas guzzler) and I am stuck home. I can occasionally borrow my moms  but still an inconvenience.

That's not even the worst thing! I had the best dinner planned for Brenna's birthday. Per her request, cchicken fettuccine alfredo, cesear salad, and garlic bread.. So I am getting ready to start dinner and David informs me we are out of propane. We use propane to heat the house, run our fireplaces AND for the cook top. I am clueless why we ran out, but maybe while we were on vacation, the fireplaces were run a little longer than normal? UGH

So I make adjustments and borrow my moms hotplates to boil noodles and cook sauce. I decide to bake chicken in oven and also use oven for the bread.

I'm getting back into my groove; using what I have available to make the dinner turn out good. I put chicken in the oven. And start to boil water for noodles. ALL of a sudden I hear a POP! Then icky smelling smoke. MY OVEN BLEW UP!!!! Can you believe it??? So David is swearing and I am trying to figure out what to do. Brenna tells me to saute the chicken. (DUH). So I pull out a cast iron pan and start sauteing 4 chicken breasts. Once that is done, then I go back to boiling noodles. THEN, I do the sauce.

In the meantime I decide no bread since I can't cook it. Well my mom brings up a toaster oven. So my counters are all crowded with extra appliances. I am running back and forth between toaster oven and little cook top to try to get dinner together. David keeps telling me to just cancel the dinner but I guess I took it as a challenge! LOL

We ended up eating over an hour late....BUT the fettuccine turned out sooooo delish!!!! In the end it worked out. Just a bit hectic.

So this morning, I call first thing to get the guy out here to fill our propane. Well of course, we are on a waiting list....and my house is getting colder and colder. (its at 59 right now). And I am worried because last time it snowed the truck got stuck in our driveway. LOL CROSS your fingers that he makes it here...and makes it up our driveway so we don't turn into popsicles!

SECOND call of the morning was to the appliance place. I needed to double check because this happened once before.  I need to refresh my memory on when and how much.  Well it was just a little over a year ago AND it cost $500 to fix. No warranty since this oven set wasn't bought from them, the oven is over 10 years old and the part only had a 90 day warranty. Well at this point there is no way I am paying another $500 dollars, for it to happen in another year. So looks like I will have to buy a new double oven set! UGH. Can't do that right away so will be without ovens for a few weeks.

So now I am sitting here, bundled up, cruising the Internet looking at double ovens.

How was your weekend??

UPDATE: Propane truck arrived AND made it up my driveway!!  House should be heating up soon.

A New Year, a New Me....the REAL Me

I am starting off the New Year with a repost of two of my favorite quotes and thoughts.  Thought it was a fitting way to start the New Year.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Healing may not be so much about getting better, as about letting go of everything that ISN'T you - all of the expectations, all of the beliefs - and becoming who you are.
-- Rachel Naomi Remen

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
"And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom"
--Anais Nin

Sometimes we wonder how we got to where we are. Not our surroundings, jobs or life around us.....but the person the world see's and accepts. Because honestly, I don't think that person is always the person that we feel on the inside.

I think we all make changes along our lives path that we don't consciously agree to! We get married and give up a part of our freedom....we sometimes conform to what we think is the ideal spouse. We have children and begin to behave in a way that we think is THE way that a parent behaves. We don't always share our strong opinions because they are deemed NOT politically correct. We start to dress a certain way, behave a certain way....and conform ourselves. ALL so we can be liked by the masses. So we fit in. Molded into a cookie cutter image of what we think we need to be.

But what if that is not how we feel on the inside? What if we want to be more true to how we really feel?

The RISK is: what if no one likes the person we are on the inside? What if we offend someone? What if they laugh at us? What if they talk about us? What if not EVERYONE likes us?

Is the RISK worth it?
