My Day to Escape

Friday is the one day of the week that I've always tried to set aside for ME! Or at least part of the day. I like to go to a late afternoon movie by myself. There is no one I have to chat with, no phone to answer, nothing to do except to kick back in my chair and get lost in the movie. I have wanted to see the Blind Side for so, so long but my Friday's at the movies were taken up with work and stuff the past two months. It felt so good to get back to "my day" yesterday afternoon. I really enjoyed the message in the Blind Side, a true story. Helping someone because your heart wants to help and you can. Wouldn't it be awesome if more people were like this? A pretty simple concept. I love this time of year when there are so many good movies out. I always like to see as many of them as I can before the Academy Awards. What better way to escape than to just sit back and get lost in a movie. I've missed this and can't wait to go back next week! And if you are like me, and haven't had a chance to see this movie, GO! You might want to bring some kleenex with you as well!

I love movies! I rather watch a good movie than eating a good meal!

I havent seen it yet, but plent of people have told me to get going. I have got to say, I dont know what Sandra Bullock is doing, but in this movie and in her last one(the name escapes me, she was from Canada and getting deported if she didnt marry) she is looking downright, curvy and bootylicious!! Pilates? yoga? I dont know, but she's looking fabulous!

I saw a tv special about the real people in this movie and it was so interesting! Did you know that the actor who played the football player was also having a desperate life and was on the verge of being homeless when he received the role? So a movie about changing a young man's life has changed another young man's life! Cool, huh?

Hi Sue,
I'm dying to see this .. I have only heard people RaVe about it, and I'm also behind on my movie going .. How fun for you, and to be able to just relax a bit when you can now ~ Sounds like a perfect day ..
