We celebrated 9 years of blogging in August! It feels like it has flown on by! I appreciate all of you for sticking with me through the years!
I had an aunt pass away from complications with her diabetes. She was an aunt through marriage, but it still hurts all the same. Also makes me think about my own diabetes, and that I need to keep taking care of myself.
Enough sad stuff. Summer is almost over, oh wait, that's more sad stuff! I realized I did nothing noteworthy this summer. Did any of you have anything exciting to talk about? Fill me in! Let me live vicariously through you! 😁

  1. I'm sorry to hear about your aunt. I hope you've been enjoying HP as much as I've been enjoying seeing you share excerpts of the books every Friday. Hope you have a good September.

  3. My condolences on the loss of your aunt. I know with me, I put more care and attention into the health of my pets and kids than myself! We definitely need to be better about taking care of ourselves to stay healthy.

    I still need to finish Harry Potter series. I was reading the series aloud to my kids, and Goblet of Fire was taking forever to get through and we stopped in the middle of it. Maybe now that they are older it will be better!

Funny, heartwarming and visually stunning, The Grinch is fun for the whole family!



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 …
