Project 52: Date Night

I gave Joel a couple of choices for date night and he choose a rental and popcorn.  We watched "The Hurt Locker" on Amazon's Video on Demand. 

It's about two hours long and oh say half way through motion sickness kicked in for me.  We took a little break, I took a little Bonine and answered the question "If you could change one thing about your life right now, what would it be?"  I liked his answer and he said he'd help me change mine.
We decided to finish the movie and my take on the movie, LAME! I was engaged and tracking along and then the end just kind of fizzled out like a flat Coke.  The dude should have been blown up, that would be a great commentary on love right there! Alas, I did not write it. 


Speaking of writing movies (like that transition?) Joel and I are going to try our hand at ScriptFrenzy this April.  I'm going to have to get to work creating some future posts for you all because if not, there might not be any updates all of April :)

  1. I always feel the same way about movies. I should be consulted before they are released! :)

  2. Thanks for dropping by! I'm glad that I watched it with him as it's the kind of movie I would normally ask him to watch on his own. But I should remember to take precautions before watching movies that might have the free arm recording. Ugh.

The Bottom of the Pool by Andy Andrews

Y'all know that I'm a big Andy Andrews fan, so I was very excited to read his latest, The Bottom of the Pool. The best way that I can describe this book is like sitting down with your friend and they remind you how it is. It's not like Andy is hawking some secret voodoo send me $5 and you'll get $5000 in the mail next week black magic. He's sharing the truth. And the truth is that if you're dealing with an obstacle in your life, there's a big possibility that you're thinking about it all wrong.

This relatively quick read is jam-packed full of good stuff. There are interesting stories about historical figures but the main story that runs throughout the book is one of a childhood friend. Andy's friend did something extraordinary one summer afternoon that illustrates how we can break out of cycles hold us back from achieving what we are created to do. Without telling you exactly what Andy has to share in this book, it might feel like it's some mag…

Saturday Rant: Dominoes

I always find it interesting how life can be very much so like dominoes sometimes. Let's see, my husband went out of town this last fall. I volunteered to preach for him while he was gone. I told a friend about the online copy of the sermon. She forwarded it to a few folks, next thing you know, I'm doing a short testimony at my weekly Bible study. What I'm really wondering it "What next?"

You see, when I got done preaching, and my husband came back into town, we talked about how people reacted to the sermon. Then we talked some more when I was asked to share again. And the question was, maybe I'm supposed to be open to talking more often.

To be honest, I haven't done a lot of talking in groups since I had a really bad experience a few years ago. I was always opinionated, in fact I still am. I have lots of opinions about most everything from how warm my house should be to which way the car should take me from point a to b. But I found myself in a group of …

The Minimalist Home by Joshua Becker

I've been following Joshua Becker's blog for a few years and have read all the things and even put them into action. I was excited to be able to read his room-by-room guide for minimizing your home.

The Minimalist Home systematically goes through every space in your home, including the garage and yard, and talks about how to minimize them. Becker has put thought into which spaces should happen first for the biggest impact and encouragement. Because even though it's wonderful to have a minimalist garage, it may not be the best place to start and get the whole house done.

Our home has been trending towards minimalist in nature for a while now. And I'm happy to share with you that this little book helped us take a few more steps in the minimal direction. I loved all the checklists for the different areas. As well as the facts about living space and stuff consumption sprinkled throughout.  The Notes section is full of great resources for further reading as well.
