Ok, how weird is this...

I just looked at my last post and it appears I remember I have a LJ only after I watch the movie Juno, which is what I did tonight.

Going back to re~read some old posts. Maybe I should start writing in here again?

Life ~ Reflected in movies

Saw the movie Juno tonight. It was one of those movies you buy when it comes out so you can watch it again when you want to feel good.

While I was watching it I was thinking a little of my own life. Juno was the same age that my birth mother was when I was born. I would like to think that she had the same kind of support Juno had from the people around her when she decided to continue with her pregnancy and give me up for adoption. Since I've never met my birth parents and I don't know their story (except the brief description she left for me in the unidentifying information provided by the state) it's nice to think that maybe things weren't so bad for her, that maybe she was ok with her decision and just looked at it as a selfless act rather then something she may have been forced into.

I know it's just a movie but I guess without any real answers of my own I tend to grasp at fantasy...

Not too much going on besides work and work. Kids are good, school starts Thursday. Work is busy, been doing 10 hour days. Daniel is good, working two jobs now. We have new additions to the family. 4 baby kittens born in May. All in all, life is good.

Men are simple ~ and that's not an insult when we're talking about sexual arousal! You know the drill: You give your partner that "come hither" eye or break out some sexy lingerie and it instantly gets him in the mood. Well, it takes a little more than that to get the sensual juices flowing for many women. In fact, it's often activities that have absolutely nothing to do with sex that make women want to do it in the first place.

Sound confusing? Well, it's really not. Foreplay starts long before you ever make it into the bedroom! It turns out that women whose partners pay attention to them outside the boudoir are more likely to feel sexual when he's in the mood. It can start with the simple act of him helping pack the kids' lunches or taking care of that pile of laundry that has sat there all day. And it's not just about the drudgery of daily chores! Men who check in with their partners emotionally ~ even if it's an hour of cuddle time in front of the TV at night or a conversation about the day ~ create the intimacy women crave.

Ultimately, it's that caring and sharing that women really look for in a long-term relationship. While hormones and neurochemicals take care of sex in the beginning, it's what we put into a relationship later on that keeps the sex coming (or going) for life!

Be careful...

"Be very careful if you make a woman cry, because God counts
her tears. The woman came out of a man's rib. Not from his feet to be walked on. Not from his head to be superior, but from the side to be equal. Under the arm to be protected, and next to the heart to be loved."

Calling all computer geeks...


Here's the problem. I turn on my computer, it makes the sounds that it's booting up. I see the Windows XP logo, then blackness...

It's driving me fucking mad!

Trick or Treat!

Our annual Halloween party is this Saturday night! This is Daniel and my 3rd year working at the Halloween store. This year though we're at different stores. I'm at the one closer to home and he's at the one closer to his regular job. It's good though. Hard to believe we've been together since we met that first year we worked together at the store :)

Halloween is a good time around here. We've got most of the decorations up but with us both working so much there's still a lot to do before halloween.

Fun Fun!

Time sure flies...

It seems the older I get the quicker time goes by. I remember as a kid summer vacation, Christmas and birthdays never came quick enough. Now, the days pass with a blink, weeks are gone in minutes and the years are quickly passing with too many things left undone.

Maybe it's just the holidays that get me thinking or the fact that my birthday falls just before Christmas and it gets me weirded out.

Yes, my birthday, that's a whole other subject. That's the day that marks the end and beginning of who I am. I know it doesn't make sense and I never try to explain it. I can't. It's just a feeling. My own private hell...
