Sickness & Spring

Well...spring is here and with it comes...sickness! My son and I have both been battling sickness for the last 2 1/2 weeks. He was given medication and is pretty much over his. I was told mine was a virus and would just have to tough it out! UGH!!! On top of this, it's tax season and I am a bookkeeper, so no rest for the weary (or the sick). Just when I think I am about over this, spring brings...allergies! So, the tightness in my chest wants to come back, I'm sneezing my head off and I just feel worn out! Fortunately I finally got everything entered at work and can now take the next week off for my son's Spring Break! Time to go to Disney World and visit Mickey!

Well...needless to say, I haven't done any stitching for the last 2 1/2 - 3 weeks! I have tried to "finish" a couple of things I have stitched, but they just aren't coming out the way I want. So, I thought it best to just put them aside for until I felt more like tackling them. Hope to have some stitching done, or at least some "finishing" done by my next post.
I have managed to see several movies over the last month/6 weeks. Here are my latest thoughts:
College Road Trip - good, clean family movie. Parts were laugh out loud funny! Very enjoyable!
Horton Hears a Who! - cute, good family movie
Fool's Gold - OK. Nothing great. I always love Donald Sutherland, but the girl playing his daughter really irritated me.
The Other Boleyn Girl - A very good movie (if you like period/historical pieces). The costumes were amazing! They even had Natalie Portman wearing a necklace that looked just like the one that is in paintings of Ann Boleyn. Eric Bana is certainly better looking than any portrait I have ever seen of Henry VIII! We will never know the exact details of everything and I am sure they fictional/artistic license was taken on some things, but...I do feel that the "bones" of history was stuck to.
Penelope - a sweet, fanciful movie. I really like James McAvoy.

Don't forget the stash sale here!

Jinger, I am so sorry to hear that you are still not feeling the greatest. I hope the trip to visit our favorite mouse will help! Have a great vacation!

Hope you feel soon better - at least you've got your holidays coming up and some time to chill!
