*Spent a couple hours in the car on Sunday and listened to some stuff on the radio about 9/11. They played some of the recordings from the planes, and talked to survivors. This year more than any other year I felt very sad. And I just couldn't imagine witnessing something like that first hand. So scary, and so sad that these people who did witness it are changed forever. I found myself close to tears listening to people recounting that horrible day. I think it's good for us to remember, as people, and as US citizens. Our freedom and safety is precious. I am thankful to the soldiers who risk their life fighting for our freedom and way of life.
*Long run went well this last Saturday. Planned on 14 miles but rain 13.8. Jessica joined me for the first half and the second half I listened to music. Town Lake was as busy as ever and I had to weave in and out of people on my second loop. All in all SUPER happy on my second 13 mile run! I ate not too long after this time also, which REALLY helped! I felt better and not so exhausted! Even made it home and mopped the floors :)
*Bought a new washing machine and I couldn't be happier! Paid a BUNCH for a LG high efficiency front load a few years back and I have HATED IT! It had got to the point where I was having to wash clothes two, sometimes 3 times...it's just been a nightmare! This past weekend we bought a cheap top load washing machine and finally my clothes smell fresh after one wash cycle! Hallelujah!
* Fall TV shows are starting up. A few I am looking forward to are:
"Parenthood" (A good funny show with some great actors)
"Vampire Diaries" (A little teeny bopperish at times, but all in all pretty entertaining!)
"Dexter" ( LOVE LOVE this show!)
....and so sad that "True Blood" is over :( I thought it was a really good season, and I wish there were some more episodes!!!
*I am not much for reading news about the world markets or current events....but I love some good celebrity gossip...and who do I turn to?? Tmz of course! This morning I had quite a predicament.....or lack thereof!
Hmmm....the answer is obvious. Can anyone who has seen the Notebook not make the same decision??
Because you see it's not really Ryan Gosling that I like. It's the character! It's the time the movie was set in. It's the thought of a love that lasts forever and is pure and complicated, but real.
Something you may not know about me is I don't like romantic movies. Some of my favorite movies are Seven, Fight Club, The Usual Suspects, Boondock Saints, I love a good twisted film!
The Notebook is the exception, and every single time I watch it I cry. No matter what!
That's about all I have for today. Have a good week all!
