I’m Behind …


So, I finally saw Infinity War today. Um, I bawled. Like FULL-ON bawled. Not as bad as my daughter, but OH GOD, the tears.

Without spoilers, I will say THIS character was the one who got me. I watched him in Homecoming, and damn it, that’s what suckered me.

And a certain other teenager who “got some sap” 🙁



An Update on Me

Well, I haven’t blogged in awhile. No real reason. Just haven’t.

This past week has been INSANEly busy!

Monday: I worked a morning shift. That’s not that big of a deal. It was followed by a Boy Scout EARLY function, but it’s okay. Josh was off this week.

Hockey Game Was Great

Ethan’s scout troop had a chance to go to the local hockey league’s game, the Topeka Roadrunners. They won, but Ethan’s favorite part was the hanging out on the ice.

The spinner/somersaulter was a known scout, as well.


brave-wallpaper-meridaJosh, the kids, and I saw Brave yesterday. You know it’s going to be a good movie when one of the people come in and go “this is a sold-out show” and asks that there be no empty seats between people. That, and then you hear a lot of people murmuring how thankful they were that they got their tickets on Fandango, Laughing out loud. Yeah, we were one of those.

I got Madi the MP3 version of the soundtrack, and burned in onto a disk for her. Friday, I think? She’s listened to it non-stop since then. I think she’s Brave-brave-28745553-1600-1000enjoying it, just a little. She’s already chosen a few favorites. I don’t care what she chooses. I’m so glad that she’s enjoying it.

The movie is perfect for all ages. The whole theatre was laughing at parts. They collectively awwed at parts. It was a great family movie, and just an all around great movie. Did give me a feeling of Brother Bear a little, but I liked that movie. Josh loved the witch. I mean wood-carver Laughing out loud. Madi said I’m just like the mom, Laughing out loud

Today is migraine city. 93F, heat index of 106F. I don’t care if it’s not “hot” to some people, it’s freaking hot, and it’s muggy as hell. I’ll take 106F dry-heat because at least the sweat will EVAPORATE. Nope, with humidity, you’re swimming in your own sweat.
