We also got many compliments on how well the boys behaved. "Oh, they have to learn how to behave and sit still," I'd say with a smile. "An Amish church service is three hours long!"

  1. I'm not sure if I'd enjoy Plain Faith or not, although it does sound unusual. I'll have to read more about it before deciding.

  5. It's hard enough for a child to sit through a normal church length church service. I know, my Mommom was a minister. Love her tons, but she could talk forever. :-) But 3 hours? You're going to get a lot of squirmy butts!

  9. I just found myself a book on Amish community last week! When I told my kids that Amish services were 3 and almost half a day long they just about died....not sure if I should be concerned or tickled by their reaction ha ha ha XD

  15. Three hours long??? I could never sit in church that long. My feet would hurt. I would want to giggle. No way for children to do it. Have fun reading this week.

What you can't see can hurt you. Trapped in a violent, controlling relationship with a wealthy scientist, Cecilia (Elisabeth Moss) escapes in the dead of night and disappears into hiding.

As a series of eerie coincidences turns lethal, threatening the lives of those she loves, Cecilia's sanity begins to unravel while she desperately tries to prove she is being hunted by someone nobody can see. 


REVIEW:
I sorta hated the beginning.
Starts outs so dark that you can't really make anything out. Hard to know what's going on if you can't see.
It doesn't take long to get light though.
Thankfully.
Man, does the story ever pick up after that. I don't remember much about the original but this one is intense. Right to the very last second too.
Sydney is badass and shows it throughout. Can you imagine what it would be like if everyone thought you were o…

In the mythical continent of Westeros, several powerful families fight for control of the Seven Kingdoms. As conflict erupts in the kingdoms of men, an ancient enemy rises once again to threaten them all. Meanwhile, the last heirs of a recently usurped dynasty plot to take back their homeland from across the Narrow Sea.

REVIEW: I loved the whole series, but especially loved this season as it wrapped it all up.  There were a couple of moments that were so incredibly tragic, but also a couple moments where the most tragic things couldn't have happened to better people. Take Sussy for example. God, how I hated that woman through the whole show and couldn't wait for her to get what was coming to her. Did she get it here? You have to watch and see! This is the season where you will sit on the edge of your seat, waiting to see who will win the kingdom. Does your favorite character prevail above the others? MIne d…
