Microblog Monday 7


Random thoughts. . .
  • I should realize by now that if I think I am caught up, either around the house or at work, that just means that I am neglecting or have forgotten a number of key tasks that need to be completed.
  • It's a sad commentary on our current life that MM and I literally cannot coordinate a single evening or afternoon this month to see the movie Gone Girl. . . when pre-kids, we would've seen this movie opening night, or at least opening weekend.  (I read and loved the book, and MM has wanted to see it since seeing the first preview.)
  • On a more positive note. . . it's so fun to see our sons growing and developing, and to see the pleasure that my in-laws derive from watching the new things they can do.
  • I really need to just schedule massages at regular intervals rather than waiting until I can actually feel the tension in my upper back and neck.
  • There were no tears at the pumpkin patch this year!

  1. Three cheers to the pre-emptive massage.

    We saw Gone Girl this weekend. I will say that if you end up missing it and waiting until it is on DVD, you may actually be okay. It was well done, don't get me wrong, but it sort of felt a bit like a cliff notes of the book. It moved too quickly through too much. Which is the challenge of turning a dense book into a movie. But they were both wonderful.

  2. Yours is the second post in a row I've read talking about a massage, and I'm about to pick up the phone and book one myself. Thanks for the prompt!

    I can also relate to your first point.

  3. Oh, yes..massages.
    There are no pumpkin patches here (not that I've ever gone to one), but I would love to check one out some year. We may just have to make a US trip at this time of the year in the future.

  4. Yes, yes, yes yes (but actually I haven't had a massage in several years) and we never made it to the pumpkin patch. (BTW, new here, just found your blog through Mel's, and I can relate to pretty much everything you've written...)

I love comments! Just one caution: if you want to leave a negative comment on this blog, I would ask that you question the motive for doing so; I will not publish it. Thanks.
