www.kidsinmind.com........Check it Out!

Have you ever gone to the movies and had to walk out, or rented a movie and have been so shocked by the content, that you had to take it back to the video store, immediately? Well, those days are over because now there are websites that actually go through the work of reviewing movies for us, and give us detailed description on the content of the movie.

This is so helpful to me because another person may recommend a movie and say it is appropriate to see, but I have found that their idea of appropriate, rarely matches up to my idea of appropriate. I rented a movie one time that was highly recommended and just let me tell you.....a scene came on and I could not work the buttons on that remote fast enough, for nothing. I finally got it turned off and then I took it back to the store.

Since then, I haven't rented a movie by recommendation alone.......I will go to www.kidsinmind.com and look up any movie we are interested in. I love this site because it lists every detail of nudity, violence, and profanity, so you know up front whether it is going to be a movie that is appropriate to rent or go see. They give you ratings from 1 to 10 on sex and nudity.......violence and gore.......and profanity. 1 being really good and 10 being really bad and inappropriate.

It's a great site, so I hope you all will start checking it out, so you will know in advance what you're getting your self into when you go to watch a new movie. All I have to do is look at the number ratings and that tells me whether I should see it or not. It's great, so check it out!

Out of Practice! Gotta Get Back Into My Groove!

Ok, so after taking this time off from blogging....now I'm OUT OF PRACTICE and struggling to get back into it. Can you believe that? I've got to get back into my groove...and honey believe me when I say, I can get my groove thang ON! Does that make me groovy? Nooo, that just means I have lots of rhythm and I can dance! LOL

Let's see where do I begin...

Well, after my doctor suggested I go to a dry hot climate to help heal up my lungs, Andy and I hopped in the truck and took a road trip to Lake Havasu City, Arizona. We were gone for 3 weeks and let me just tell you how awesome it was.....IT WAS AWESOME! Our friend's dad owns a house there and he offered for us to go and stay in it. He has become such a wonderful friend to us and is a huge blessing! This is the same guy that helped us build our house, by the way. Anyway, each day my lungs got better and better and I felt like a million bucks. I know if we could have stayed just 2 more weeks my lungs prob would have been completely healed, but I'm not complaining, the time we had there worked wonders!

Get this....while there I became a morning person and got up around 5:00 a.m., so we could go for our morning 2 hour walk down at the London Bridge and around the lake. The mornings were beautiful.....by 6:00 a.m. it was 85 degrees....by 8:00 it was 102 and the rest of the day was usually 106, but one day it got up to 110 degrees. Most days we went for another hour walk in the evenings too. We were told that the heat was rather mild while we were there and that it actually gets much hotter. I took so many pictures that it's a little overwhelming to try and choose which ones to share on here. I prob have almost 2000 pics., so I guess I went a little overboard huh? I'm in the process of going through them and deleting some.


I took this pic. just as we had arrived and were looking for the house.




I loved the mountains and the palm trees!


There was every kind of cactus imaginable, but this was my favorite! I've never really liked cactus until I saw this one. I guess I like it because of the purple color.

I really wanted to keep on my early morning routine, but sad to say I haven't done very well since, we've been home. I had to recuperate from the traveling, so I've been getting up around 8:00 and I even slept in til 10:00 on Monday, but I think that's because I was running a fever and didn't feel well. I haven't exercised in 4 days, but I'm getting back to it in a few minutes, when I get out in my hot tub and do some rowing and leg exercises and I plan on getting back on my treadmill tomorrow. Gotta keep in shape and keep my lungs exercised!

Had an upper GI done this morning and hey that Barium swallow was mighty tasty! NOT! I had to swallow these crystals that felt sort of like pop rocks, but trust me they didn't taste like pop rocks! They were supposed to get the wrinkles out of my stomach, so the doc could see inside my stomach better. Weird huh? Who would have thought that we would have wrinkles in our stomach? The doc told me the crystals would make me want to burp, but he instructed me to not do so. I'd like to know how to stop it....it just happened and it was a little embarrassing. It was like drinking a coke as fast as you can and then trying not to burp. I don't drink sodas or anything carbonated, so I guess I'm out of practice. I just kept apologizing to the doctor. LOL We're trying to get to the bottom of the acid reflux thing, so I can't wait to get the results. Well, that's my update that I promised, so bye for now. I'll be stoppin' by to read up on your blogs, so I can catch up. It's good to be back! :)
