get this weekend started!

Sorry for the lack of posts this week...just having a really good and busy few days!

My week started with the Eclipse premiere at midnight. The line and waiting and seating stunk--second row--I loathe sitting in the front 6 rows. But oh well. Maybe I'm getting to old for this crap. lol I really liked the movie; I think it's the best one so far. The acting, direction, effects, and violence are all deliciously done. Good humor, good abs, good makeout scenes, good stuff. My only complaints are: Carlisle's sudden accent (he didn't have one in movies one or two), I wasn't crazy about Bryce Dallas Howard's version of Victoria, and Bella's engagement ring...uuuugly. But the rest I give two thumbs up.

Yes, I passed my state CNA exam and am already applying for part-time or pool jobs. So if you know any... It's a load off my mind, I tell ya. I'm full of self-doubt when it comes to stuff like this. I'm so glad to have it over with! Danny also did well on his mid-term. He has only a few weeks left of his Math class and Monday he starts Humanities class. Those will overlap for a bit, but once he's done with those, he'll have his AA! Yay Dan! After that, he has 4 or so pre-reqs he has to do for the Nursing Program and then he's on his way as well. Getting things done!

I have a few reviews coming up--the real reason why I haven't posted this week--and I thought they were going live today. Turns out we're still waiting on some clients, but then I'll have more chances for you to enter for $100 gift cards. Just so you know, I've won three of these myself! The odds are really good, so I strongly encourage you to enter, and not only mine, but all the others in the BlogHer loop. Good luck!

This weekend is going to be a fantastic four-day celebration for our family and friends. We have plans each of the four days to spend time together; I love it! For those of you traveling, braving the theme parks, going out of town, staying in, or keeping things quiet, enjoy your Independence Day weekend. Fly a flag if you have one, and take a few moments to remember what it is we're celebrating. :)

I leave you with a gem of a video that has been passed around the internet. It is by far my favorite video available on youtube this year. It is beautiful and gives me goosebumps every single time I watch it. Enjoy, and keep safe this weekend.

Seriously Bella's engagement ring was awful. wolf Jacob gave Bella (that he made himself) didn't look how I pictured it at all.

I disliked Victoria in this movie, not the character (she is a wench of course) but the portrayal, too.

Elise and I plan to try to do the midnight thing for the last movie but honestly I am too darn old ti enjoy that!

Congrats on passing your CNAs. Saw Eclipse. Charlie was my favorite in this movie.

What Carlisle accident? I thought Bryce D. Howard, did ok. She wasn't as mean or believable as the first gal that played Victoria, so well I guess I would have to agree but I do like her but not for Victoria.

Yeah to you!!!! Knew you could do it. Best of luck finding a job somewhere. Wish I knew of somewhere to refer to you.

Have a wonderful and safe weekend!
