This & That Thursday

* I just found ants in one of our kitchen cabinets. Apparently, some children's tylenol had a few drops on the side that they were after. I killed all that I could see, but I don't know where any ant bait stuff is - Matt, please take care of this when you come home.

* I joined Blockbuster this week to get 1 month's worth of rentals free. So far, we've rented The Proposal, Inglorious Basterds, Dora the Explorer's singalong, The Maiden Heist, Berenstain Bears, and Couples Retreat. Any other rental suggestions??? We still have 3 week's left of free movies!!

* Audrey has started saying a ton of new words in the last week. Yesterday, after banging her hand, she said, "Ow, my thumb!" Who knew she knew what a thumb was?? I didn't! My baby is no longer a baby!

* Julia's really gotten into UNO - great game idea SANTA! It's definitely the children's game that Matt and I prefer.

* I'm still foul and a little bitter about this job junk. Everytime Matt checks his email, I hold my breath hoping that it's a church contacting him. Same goes for when his phone rings. I'm sure it's worse on him, but I hate it too. Thank you to all of you for allowing me to continually vent about this on here.

* As usual, Julia ran into our room this morning to watch TV while Matt and I took our time waking up. All of a sudden, Audrey came in. Apparently, before she came out of her room, she took off her pj's and diaper and decided to grace us with her naked self.

I obviously had to take a picture that didn't show off everything!


  1. when did we rent inglorious? b/c i haven't seen it.

  2. I thought you rented it last weekend. Hmmmm, what were watching when you said, "You might not want to go in (the living room) right now - it's pretty violent." I was thinking that was Inglorious.

  3. movie suggestions

    Men Who Stare at Goats
    Pirate Radio
    Time Travelers Wife


  4. OK correction - we didn't rent Inglorious, we rented The Dark Knight. Obviously, I didn't watch it. Batman, Superman, and all that mess just annoy me.
    I think the Time Traveler's Wife sounds like a good option; my guess is that if I do rent it I'll wind up watching it alone.

  5. We just rented Zombieland. I was skeptical and sent Michael Paul upstairs to watch by himself. But after 10 minutes of hearing him laugh out loud, I joined him. It was surprisingly quite hilarious!

    I continue to be in awe of your coupon success.

    Still praying for the job search. ;o)

  6. Movie Recommendations (some are older ones you may have already seen):
    Defiance (historically true - WWII Jewish resistance/survival)
    The Tunnel (historically true - in German with English
    subtitles, but worth the trouble to watch/read
    about a tunnel under the Berlin Wall)
    Gran Torino (Clint Eastwood!!)
    Curious Case of Benjamin Button (Brad Pitt!!)
    Four Christmases (Comedy)
    Leatherheads (Comedy about beginnings of NFL)
    Burn After Reading (Dark Comedy by Coen Brothers)
    Walk the Line (obviously the Johnny Cash story)
    Facing the Giants (done by Baptist Church in GA)
