Hanging out with the family tonight.
Watching Over the Hedge for the millionth time.
So, since I have the movie nearly memorized,
thought I'd pop on here.
To tell you two things.
1) The poinsettia is still in my living room.
I have walked by it a few thousand more times.
And still not thrown it out.
My excuse today?
Which we need.
But I'm fairly certain I'm made of sugar.
And would melt if I happened to step out.
So, for the sake of my family,
the poinsettia stays.
Don't ask me about the other three days this week.
I have no excuse.
But I do feel better admitting that it is still there.
Since I told you I was getting rid of it.
2) I finished Mockingjay.
The last in the Hunger Games Trilogy.
At the risk of angering some of you...
Not crazy about it.
Loved the first book.
Really liked the second until the last 25% or so.
But this last one.
Not so much.
Not quite able to put a finger on the why.
Maybe it's too violent?
Not character-driven enough?
But I can now at least say I've read them all.
My older two want to read them.
I'm leaning toward no, not yet.
Even though many of their friends have.
If it means I'm the ridiculous mom,
It means I'm the ridiculous mom.
I'm ok with that.
I'm off to pop popcorn.
And make orange julius for the family.
That will redeem myself a bit in their eyes.
Have a great weekend!
