All points bulletin...

Looks like I've been ignoring this blog eh? I haven't really. Just been busy. Let's do a bullet list.


*Vacation to Orange Beach, Alabama with family. Fun, but just as I suspected, old family dynamics come into play. I love my sister and I love my mom, but together? Drive me mad. And of course the way I respond to it just validates their behavior. Whatevs, excellent to see my bro in law and nieces and nephew. Dolphin cruise, mini golf, beautiful beach days, sunburn, shopping, boiled shrimp, lots of time with Husband.

*Husband. All is great, as usual. He's in Houston right now for some meetings. We had a date Saturday night and saw District 9. Fail. EPIC fail. Could have been great, but it just wasn't. Maybe I just don't like scifi movies? Saw a trailer for Shutter Island, now THAT will be excellent.

*Roller Derby. This, as well as my blog, has taken the back burner since my sister and her family have been in town. See, they live wayyy far away in western NY, and we see them only once a year, so my time has been devoted to family. I feel a tad guilty about this, but at the same time, not so much. It is what it is, and obviously, family comes first. I haven't been to practice since the 6th, and while I hope to make it tomorrow night, I realized a little while ago that tomorrow night is my sister's last night in town. We'll see I suppose.

*Crafting. Nothing here. And that really sucks. Must rectify.

*Fall. It's on its way. Kids are back in school here, so I've begun to light the autumn candles and will pull out all the decor later this afternoon. Don't judge me.

What's been going on in your life? Let me know!

Good to know that District 9 sucked. It was walking the line for me ... I knew I was either going to love it or hate it. You have settled it for me.

I can't wait to see Shutter Island either. I toyed with the idea of reading the book before it came out and even posted about it on my blog a couple months ago but couldn't find anyone else that had read it so I trashed the idea. I think the trailer might have given too much away anyhow. Still want to see the movie though.
