Busy Busy


I haven't been able to get around to people's blogs like I usually do. Sorry about that. It's not that I don't think of you guys, I do. We are just busy with life.

We have so much jewelry to sort through and sell. It's a big job. Grandma didn't have junk jewelry. It is all worth something. So we are getting pictures and prices ready.

We have the house full of furniture too. Tee keeps telling me when she sells enough of it I'll be able to move my massive bookcase in here with all my beloved books. You would think that would motivate me to get all this stuff posted for sale but it's a pain in the arse. Sometimes she thinks she should get retail price for things. Not gonna happen. But sometimes my opinion means nothing. Frustrating...

We watched a couple of movies last night. "Away From Her" on Showtime. It was really sad. A woman struggling with alzheimers and her husband of 44 years make the decision for her to be put in a home. He has to let go of her and she is the love of his life. I cannot imagine going through this. We cried as we watched it. It was one of those movies that you really shouldn't watch when you are in emotional PMS. Depressing.

But then we watched "Skinwalkers" which was a werewolf movie and sexy as hell. I loved it. We both were surprised it was as good as it was. There were good werewolves and bad ones. And they were all very attractive. My kind of movie. Kind of like Interview with a Vampire but more low budget. Great and surprising ending. Loved it. No more tears :)

Had a hard time sleeping last night. My legs were aching a lot. The workouts are strengthening my muscles but they hurt at night. Took some ibuprofen and it helped a bit. I am slacking this morning. I am only due for 40 minutes of cardio but I'm just not feeling it today. I may just take the day off and make up for it. Or I may just workout later today and switch it up a bit. I can do that..

Off to the grocery later. We are out of cat food and our spoiled cats are having none of that. They always have dry food but the wet food is their twice a day treat and they are on a tight schedule. They start warning us a half hour before feeding time. You can't ignore them that's for sure.

OK, enough with the rambling. I need to get off this couch. Hope you all have a lovely Thursday. I'm sure I will. I have plenty to keep me busy.

It's almost February. I think it's my favorite month of the year. No death anniversaries. Just LOVE anniversaries :)

I know what you mean with life keepin ya busy. Then I feel so guilty when I do get a chance to catch up on everyone and I don't leave a comment.

Happy Thursday to you, too!!

I really loved Away from Her, but it took me a while to get into it. The guy that play her husband was a Canadian actor named Gordon Pinsent. He's from Newfoundland.
Have a good one GE!

I understand that people get busy with their lives, whether they want to or not.

I haven't seen either of those movies. That first one sounds like something I'd enjoy. I love movies that make me cry. (Yeah, I'm sick like that!)

Instead of doing a 40 min. workout, can you break it up into 2 20-min. ones? That might be more motivating. Just a suggestion. Hugs.

Are you planning on selling the jewelry on eBay? I know what you mean, it does take a lot of time to take pics and list and item.
Best of luck to you and T.
Yes, Feb. is a month of love!

PS thanks for the book you wrote. It all made sense.

SunTiger said...

I hope to watch Skinwalkers (now that you mentioned it). :D

Lunamor said...

I actually bought that movie - I loved it. It was very moving.
Good luck with the selling!

Judy said...

I hope you get the jewelry sold and for a good price too.

I like comedy/drama movies, ones that make me laugh and cry,lol!

Yup, real life sure does get busy!

As for Cyberville.... I've been blogging and even "tried" to socialize in JS2, but have gave up on that (again) because I read (and commented!) on quite alot of blogs 1 measly comment. bah humbug, haha.

It's a waste of my time (currently)

Hugs and good luck!

I don't think I'll watch that first movie you mentioned... to close to home :-(

Awww, Dorrie. It would be awfully close to home for you.

We didn't even post the jewelry today. But we did get lots of other stuff posted and priced and pictures taken. It's such a pain. But it will help...

I like that it is coming up to a happy time of year for you

I never get around to writing or visiting enough lately. Guess it's a good thing that life is full. You should get some good prices for that jewelry. I have to see Skinwalkers.
