I've been on a DVD binge for a few days. There was a time when Curtis and I frequented the movie theater so much that we had no reason to go to Blockbuster, but that day passed on February 17, 2006.
Curtis went out of town for 36 hours last weekend and Jackson and I stayed home. I'm a huge baby when it comes to being alone overnight, so I have to give myself a pat on the back for being such a big girl about it. I did beg Janelle to call me if she was doing anything interesting in those 36 hours. Yes, I know I'm pathetic. Jacks and I got to have dinner with Janelle and her family and it was very fun. What's really cool is that Jackson is old enough to actually keep me company now, so I never felt lonely.
On the way home from Janelle's we stopped at Blockbuster. I was giddy knowing I could get any chick flick I wanted without feeling bad for the hubby! I got two - one was okay, one was bad. When I returned them (on time!) I decided to pick up two more movies that were a little more substantial. Both were good, one was excellent. Have you seen Freedom Writers? Curt and I have a tendency to overblow the movies we like and then our friends are disappointed when they see them. Kay and Christine seem to be our most frequent victims. I don't want to say too much, but I loved this movie. It does have harsh language, so don't say I didn't warn you. If your movie-going days have been replaced by Blockbuster or Netflix or whatever, plan a date with this movie and a package of kettle corn and a box of Kleenex. By the way, did you know you can design your own Kleenex box? They even have a blog for it. Looks like I have another one to add to my bloglines!
