Twlight Series

Steph and I watched Eclipse yesterday afternoon. I couldn't believe that it was at Redbox. I don't know what it is about this series of movies that intrigues me so much. She and I have seen the first 3 movies together at the theater and we both have truly enjoyed them. Joe not so much but I understand that. He isn't a "going to the movies" type of person, much less a movie about vampires.

I think what fascinates me the most is that the relationship between Edward and Bella seems so pure. I admit that parts of it are a bit on the odd side and Heavens knows I don't believe in vampires but these movies hold my interest. I have not read the books, unlike Stephanie, so I never know what is going to happen next. She always knows though. Like when we were watching New Moon at the theater and I whispered to her that I just HAD to go potty. She said, "no Mom, wait a minute because it is almost over." I was glad she told me that because I would have missed the ending or at least most of it. I have never been much of a reader although I am a bit tempted by these stories. Steph told me yesterday that the author actually dreamed one of the meadow scenes. From that dream she wrote the entire story.

After we watched Eclipse she made chicken alfredo which was delicious. I was actually about to eat everything except the broccoli. I hated wasting it as I love broccoli but it was just too hard for my still sore mouth. Speaking of that, I am healing up well, it just takes time. I have to tell you that I am so tired of this. I have eaten my weight in potatoes and pimento cheese! It's a good thing I love both. But it will all be worth it in the long run. I keep looking at the big picture.

The temperates in West Kentucky are starting to feel a lot like Christmas. We even had some spitting snow over the weekend. Steph and I were out yesterday when I stopped to get gas. Let me tell you that wind was so cold that I got it started pumping using the debit card etc. and made Steph finish it! Isn't that why we have children? To do the things we don't want to do? I am only kidding of course. I love all of my kids. But I have to admit, Miss Stephanie does come in handy from time to time.

We are all doing well. The pups are happy, everyone is healthy and we are all looking forward to the holidays. It's going to be a fun on this year. It had been way too long since we have had toddlers in the house on Christmas morning. I can't wait to see (and of course take pictures) of the entire event. It's gonna be a good one!

read all the books and there was something odd about them that I just could not understand. Until I looked up info on the author and figured out she was Mormon. Think about it, 117 yr old virgin. Marriage before sex. Pregnancy right off the bat. Adult males that bonded to their mate even though the girl was a newborn. Yeah, don't tell me that doesn't strike you as odd. But not if you're Mormon!

I liked her other book the best. Try reading The Host, it's good and doesn't involve all the strange sexual hang ups.

OOh, you're going to have fun this Christmas with those little ones. I miss having young children in the house at Christmas time.

I'm so glad the CPAP is working well for you! It makes such a huge difference, I agree. I fell ten times better, getting a good night's sleep. Imagine that!

It sounds like you and your daughter have a very good relationship. How nice -- for both of you!

Merry christmas:)

I have never used Redbox, but then I have not hooked up the DVD player since I moved in April.

I may have overfed your goldfish over there on the right. I got a bit carried away clicking. I'll buy you some new ones if there are any fatalities.
