Movie Review…Women

I just went and saw Women with my mil and sil. I really liked it. There are no men whatsoever shown in the movie (they are talked about). The movie has me really thinking. It is about a woman who finds out that her husband was cheating on her.

I used to always say (before kids) that if my husband ever cheated on me, I was out the door. No way was I going to stick around with a person who does that. But now that I have two kids, I really wonder what I would do. Being a SAHM makes it more difficult for me. I mean, I have no income of my own. So what would I do if I had to raise my kids on my own? Sure I have my teaching certificate, but in Michigan that doesn’t mean a whole heck of a lot since there are no jobs. So it makes me wonder if I would really walk out the door or if I would try and make it work.

However, how in the world could a person make it work? You have nothing if you don’t have trust. I don’t see how you would be able to get that trust back once your spouse cheats on you with another person. But then again, I can’t really put myself in that person’s shoes, since I haven’t been there. But boy did my heart hurt for that woman. She was so humiliated, and rightly so.

Definitely go and see that movie. It really is a good movie and not only that, but it is a little bit empowering as well.

My poor Bella boo :(

Bella is very afraid of things that fly. It doesn’t matter what it is. Bee, flies, butterflies, etc. She will tense up and cry. Well today a bee flew near her, she tensed up and it stung her in her ear. The poor thing is now hysterical when we go outside, covers her ears and refuses to walk. We have to carry her everywhere. Understandably so.

The stinger was stuck in her ear. I called her docs office and they told me to NOT pull it straight out but to scrape something over top of it, like a fingernail and it should come out that way. It did! Thankfully. Luckily she is not allergic (my husband is). But I am sure that had to hurt pretty bad.

Anyone else feel like there are more bees this year than ever? We couldn’t even eat outside on labor day because they were just swarming all over.

Fashion confused…me or them?

I feel like I did the day I was walking on the beach 4 years ago in Florida seeing some teenage girls also walking on the beach, wearing Uggs boots. for the life of me, I couldn’t and still can’t understand why in the world anyone would want to wear those boots in 80-90 degree weather to walk the beach. But at least I knew that Uggs were fashionable.

Today I saw a woman wearing leg warmers. Now I know that they are selling them for babies and let me tell you, I think that is the cutest thing in the world…but for adults…adults that are not working out (which is the only possible way I would think it would be acceptable to wear them). This woman was wearing shorts (denim), tight t-shirt, leg warmers, and flip flops.

All we need is for this to come back into style and I think we will be all set:

I mean shoot…why not. Stirrup pants were in style around the time of leg warmers…combine and make them go up to mid thigh and we can combine three styles all in one! Leg warmers, stirrup pants, and thigh highs!

Tasty Tuesday

I thought I would share with you a recipe that I am using for dinner tonight. I haven’t made it yet, but it sounds like something we would like (well not the kids, but I’ll make them something else).

Chili-Lime Pork

1lb pork chops (I’m using bone in b/c thats what I have)
salt and pepper
1tsp chili powder
1TBS lime juice
1tsp soy sauce
1/2 tsp sugar

The pork chops are defrosting right now. Once they are defrosted I will combine all the ingredients and marinate for a couple hours and then cook them on the foreman grill.
