Is it May already?!!!

Well...it's May! Can you believe it?! A part of me can't believe it's here already. Where did the first part of the year go? And another part of me...the very tired, worn out part...thinks it has taken forever for this month to finally arrive. I somehow survived tax season, which really doesn't end until April 30th. Quarterly taxes are also due in April...on the 30th, so, unfortunately, the craziness of tax season doesn't end on the 15th, it carried through until the end of the month. Anyhow...I survived tax season and have almost survived my commitment to this committee at my son's school. By Memorial Day weekend I will feel like a HUGE weight has been lifted from me and I can finally breath again. I am also hoping that my desire to cross-stitch will return. I guess I can't say the "desire" to cross-stitch has left me. I've just been too worn out to get beyond getting the stitching stuff out and staring at it. Oh, well. Not much longer now.

My "desire" to go to the movies hasn't left me during this time. It has been such a great relaxation thing for me, when I could/can find the time. Here are my latest thoughts:

Race to Witch Mountain - really enjoyed this. Much more than I thought I would. For any "fans" of the old movie...the 2 kids from the original are in this new one. The girl is the waitress at the restaurant and the boy is the sheriff in the same little town.
17 Again - liked this alot. There were a few sexual references I could have done without, but, overall I liked it. Zac E. is a cutie!
Hannah Montana - I actually enjoyed it. The cowboy guy she likes is a cutie as well and I love his deep voice.
Wolverine - loved it! Can't get enough Hugh Jackman!
Ghosts of Girlfriends Past - not bad, could have been better.

Want to see Star Trek and The Soloist soon.

Well...hope everyone is doing well and getting a lot of stitching done. Thanks for all the comments and messages. It's great to hear from everyone! Hope to have some stitching to post before too long.

Your stitching mojo will return. You just needed a break!
Hey, we're going to see Star Trek tomorrow. My husband's a big fan, but I really enjoy them too;)
Have a great weekend!

Wow girl no wonder you don't feel like stitching.
It will return. Looking forward to seeing Star Trek too. Going this week with BFF.

Saw Star Trek last night - phenonemal - one of the best ones they've done. Of course, knowing all the history and seeing the old programs definitely made a difference. It was fun to see who played the characters and how well they did it. Bones was hilarious!
