I don't know how most of you do it. I mean, I'm pretty good with getting things done. At least I used to be :-o) Since I started to blog, I find that my time passes like the wind! Where does it go? I have discovered Google Reader, which helps me easily catch up on reading blogs. How in the world do I find more time to post though? That may be something that isn't realistic. After all, I do have a family to take care of and that trumps everything. My current practice is to catch up on blog reading first thing in the morning while the kids are having breakfast or taking showers. That gives me plenty of time to get a good chunk of them read. As for posting, I usually do that at night after supper while the kids are reading or after they go to bed. Easy, right? You'd think so but it doesn't seem to work that way. I usually have papers to grade or lesson plans to go over. If it's not that, I want to get a good book and pop myself down in a corner somewhere. I've decided tonight that it'll work itself out and I'll be just fine! LOL! I would love to hear how you organize your blog reading and blog posting time.
I thought I'd take a minute to review a couple of movies real quick. First, for Stacy, Premonition. I liked it pretty well. The hubster was disappointed with the ending but I thought it was as good as it could be. I don't want to give too much away so I can't say much. If you like Sandra Bullock, you'll be surprised at this role, I think. I thought it a little odd for her but she did a good job with it. If I were rating it on a number scale, I'd give it 3.5 out of 5.
Next, Number 23 starring Jim Carrey and Virginia Madsen. First off, the trailer made me shiver when I first saw it. I couldn't imagine Jim Carrey in this kind of role. I like Virginia Madsen pretty good and she did a nice job in this film. Overall, I'd give this 4.5 of 5. I felt like this film didn't last long enough....like maybe a few more things could have been fleshed out given another 20 minutes. Anyway, it was good and Jim Carrey did a nice job. It's rated R due to some language and sexuality. It's not horrible but it is there. So, there's your warning. I was so taken with the plot that those things were just annoyances to me. I was trying to wrap my mind around the fact that everything seemed to be linked to the number 23.
I hope these were helpful. I am trying to give you as much info as possible without spoiling the films for you. I'm not sure if I've said it before here but one of the best films I've seen in a long time was Breach. If you haven't seen it, go rent it now! Oh, we also recently watched The Good Shepherd and all I can say is, ack! WAY TOO LONG! Too brutal. It doesn't make me look very positively on government agencies (FBI or CIA), not that I do anyway :-o)
I'm off to do something with the other ten cucumbers I pulled out of the garden yesterday! LOL! I could sell these babies to the supermarket, as fast as they're growing! I've got about six more to pull tomorrow. Looks like I'll be taking more to church on Sunday! I'll leave you with something else I pulled out of the garden...actually, I cut them!
I ~heart~ zinnias!
