October Monthly News

Welcome to the October edition of monthly news!
My life is chaotic at the moment.
No kids at home, and my mom has moved out.
Empty-nesting is my life, and so is downsizing.
Yup. Trying to find a place nowadays is harder than it used to be. It's either not what we like, too overpriced, or just in the worst place of the city.
The housing market sky-rocketed and mixed with rising hydro rates... I wanna scream!
But I digress. This is life. Welcome to adulting. 
So, you may see less in the next couple of months. I will still be here, but with moving and working outside the home now, it will be a little less. Maybe.
Tell me what has happened in your world lately... 
Happy Halloween, everyone!

  1. My son Anthony and I are downsizing. We're going from a 2200+ sq. ft. to a house that is a little over 700 sq. ft. I hope your move isn't very stressful.

  9. Adulting can suck, but fingers crossed everything goes smoothly for you! I loved The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel movie, but didn't realise it was a book. Glad to hear you recommend reading it!

  12. At first I was all--kids AND mom moving out? Sounds like relaxation, not stress! But then I realized it entails moving, and that is always a headache for sure. It's a good things books are a great escape!

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.
This is the eighth and final season.



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…
