December Monthly News

Welcome to the December edition of monthly news!
All moved and trying to get back to normal.
Work life is good and I am happy. I have quite a commute now though.
My 40th birthday was the 10th. I was stoked about it and hating it all-at-once.
(I'm sure some of you ladies can relate. The rest of you spring chickens... wait! 😁)

Did nothing special, actually, I was alone. Hubby had to work. WahWah....
Christmas was not the same for me this year either. Life has a way of making holidays different as you get older. Thanksgiving and Easter have more meaning to me than Christmas now. What can I say?!
Wishing you all the best in 2017!

    REVIEW:
    Such great animation!
    There was always something going on in this movie. Even though it was a story I have seen played out a million times and a million different ways, they all are different too. This had more of a story. It was very magical and is definitely fun for the whole family.
    Want to point out, Max, the dog, stole the show for me. He is so adorable, even if animation. Such a good dog.
    This is one of those Christmas movies that you really can enjoy all year round. It has enough laughs, fun and morals to be played anytime. Plus there is nothing wrong with Christmas cheer in February.

    REVIEW:
    A superbly made movie!!
    Seriously, the scenes were pretty phenomenal. It made for some pretty intense moments along the way. The space scenes were incredible. I loved how much real footage they used as well.
    I thought I knew a lot about the moon landing of '69, though it was 8 years before my time. Even thought I knew a far amount about Neil Armstrong, but after watching this film, I realize I knew nothing at all. Had no idea he was up in the atmosphere so many times before the famous landing, but alas, he was. It really was a wonderful depiction of such an iconic event.
    I also didn't know he had suffered such loss. It seemed …
