Five Years

It's hard to believe I've been writing this blog for 5 years, albeit sporadically at times. What can I say? Sometimes I don't have anything worth writing about. Like now.

Conor and I went to Jungle Jim's yesterday, and he complained about having to go with me, but when we arrived? He declared it to be the most awesome store ever. I'm sure it had very little to do with the huge isle of candy. The stuff from the olden days as well as the new stuff, candy from different countries, all kinds of different stuff.

I loved it for the many flavors of coffee syrup to choose from. I ended up only getting a few, because some flavors I knew I wouldn't like in my coffee. I got caramel, white chocolate, toasted marshmallow, and peanut butter. Mmmm, can't wait to try them all.

Ceara and I rented and watched Precious last night. So, of course I cried. I had thought the whole time I was watching it that it was based on a true story. I was a little bit relieved to find out it wasn't. Wow, I don't know how to express what I'm thinking - I don't want to give the movie away to those of you who are wanting to see it. It's just that when things are finally starting to look up for her, in a very small way, something else bad happens and it was just so unfair. Yes, I know life is not fair... oh, let's just say I cried and leave it at that, OK?

OK, anyway... Conor and I are anxiously awaiting the movie Diary of a Wimpy Kid and already have plans to see it next weekend when it comes out. I would also like to get some of the books to read to him. I told him to get the books at his book fair, but he said "I looked at them and they were all words, so I didn't get it." So, looks like I'm going to have to get them at a book store.

OK, have to go read now, so I'll just end it here. Hope everyone enjoyed their 1 hour shorter weekend!

5 years, good job. I haven't been to JJ since before they did all that remodeling. Too far, too crowed, too expensive for me. I'm glad you both enjoyed it. love.

Peanut butter flavored coffee? That's one combo I never would have thought of! Back in college, they had a really good cinnamon flavored coffee, never been able to find it anywhere since.
We went to JJ's for the first time a year or so ago, kind of a neat concept, but a long drive to get there.

Yeah, a little closer for me - about 25 min I think. It is HUGE now. They added on a mini mall type thing to one side - we didn't go in that area. There is a smaller version in Dayton I think. Trader Joe's. They have the international food stuff - just smaller.

The movie was amazing. Even if that particular story isn't true, I think that there are many stories like that out there. Sadly.

I KNEW Conor would love it once he got there and saw how fun it was! Did he limp around any on his sore leg? Is it doing better??
