"Whatever you give a woman, she will make greater. If you give her sperm, she'll give you a baby. If you give her a house, she'll give you a home. If you give her groceries, she'll give you a meal. If you give her a smile, she'll give you her heart. She multiplies and enlarges what is given to her. So, if you give her any crap, be ready to receive a ton of s*&t!!!!!!!
The movie is based on two true stories. Julia Child and Julie Powell. After seeing the movie, I saw that Julia Child was a real force to reckon with. She was over six feet tall! A fact that kept her from joining the U.S. Navy after the Pearl Harbor attack. I enjoyed the movie on so many levels. It was funny. It was a love story of sorts. It was inspiring. I loved seeing all the beautiful clothes and hats the women wore back in the late '40s and '50s. And the music, in my opinion, was awesome. It had music from that time period. Best of all, maybe, was that it took me away from things for a couple of hours. When you add in popcorn and milk duds, you have a perfect afternoon! Granted, the perfection was short-lived, but the pity party is over, remember. This is a must-see movie!
Last night, since I was feeling blue and needed another escape, Jeff and I went back to the theater to see The Perfect Getaway.
While I didn't enjoy this movie as much as Julie and Julia, it was entertaining. And I have to admit -- and if you know me, you won't be surprised -- I did let out quite a loud scream. If you have an afternoon or evening and you want to get your mind off things, take this one in. It's far-fetched no doubt, but sometimes when your mind is troubled, it's good to watch a movie like that.
The new TV we bought is a 55-inch one, which is pretty big, and the picture is so awesome. I told him we needed to rent a good movie tomorrow night and pretend we're at the movies. Do any of you have a good recommendation? I don't want something to make me sad. I don't mind a humorous one and I don't mind being scared. So whatcha got?
Cam visited the friend who had the burn accident last weekend. He said he looks good and shouldn't have much, if any, scarring on his face. They used some sort of hydrotherapy. The burn unit at Grady is amazing.
One of the best pieces of advice I've gotten lately came from my blogger friend, Laura, She said when she's dealing with life's craziness, it helps her to tell herself to simply do the next right thing. That often the next right thing isn't anything to do with the problem. It might be washing dishes or something else. I loved that and am doing just that today. For me, the next right thing this morning was to blog. To share. To thank. To laugh. To rejoice in this day that the Lord has made.
Till tomorrow, my great family and friends, LIVE. LOVE. LAUGH!!
