How I spent my day...

I can't seem to sit still enough to watch a movie but today, I was "told" to. Let me explain...
I wanted to take pictures of our pets...Nala and Simba...for the pet rescue place where my son is doing his community service hours for his bright future scholarship. As my husband and I sat on the floor and I was trying to get the little angels to pose for pics, I had to pick the big boy up and as I did, I decided to turn at the same time. Well, as age is taking its toll on my body, it isn't telling me directly but surprises me every once in a while with an ache or pain. Except today. It was a jolt that went through me like a lightning bolt!!! So, since I was now laid up in bed for the rest of the day, I decided to finally watch the two movies I borrowed from my niece.
The Notebook came first. I think it was superb....all good things happening just the way my dreams of romance are. And as I tried to cry (as I always do with romantic tear-jerkers), the pain kept me from doing so...weird, but true!
The second movie was Love Actually. This is a great pick-me-up movie with wonderful songs that you can easily relate to if you're 30+ years old. Simple but fun.
So, as the higher being decided the time had come for me to stop and watch the movies, I had to endure excruciating pain and bedrest to remind me to do so.
Tomorrow, I may just watch Beaches and try to cry some more! I hear it's the best for that.
Til next time....
