Today has been one of those days. I'm sure there are moms out there who take the punches gracefully, who swallow their frustrations, who still manage a small smile at the total terrors wreaking havoc on her sanity, unicorn moms I call them. They exist, but I don't behave too great around them. Since exercising didn't work. Homemade pizza did not work. Watching back TV shows and finally working through a tricky scene in my next novel didn't work, oh and the woman at the grocery store going out of her way today to give me a pep talk about motherhood, making me cry right there at Fred Meyer's and then hugging me didn't work, I've decided to focus on escapism. Specifically the movies, TV shows, and books I'm looking forward to in the near future (meaning between now and the end of summer).
Movies in the theaters
Iron Man 3
Star Trek (no brainer for me-I loved the original movies, I loved the last release, and this one looks so good)
(sorry that's it for near future)
Movies on DVD
Silver Linings Playbook
(I'm on the wait list for all of them at my library-yay!)
Longmire on A&E (Walt's got a girl, maybe)
The Glades on A&E (No more long distance romance...please!)
Covert Affairs on USA (What the heck was in that file folder?)
Burn Notice on USA (Fi, baby, don't be so mad at Michael)
Big Brother on CBS (because I can't help it, okay?)
Fall of Night by Rachel Caine
Chosen at Nightfall by C.C. Hunter
Dare You To by Katie McGarry
Gameboard of the Gods by Richelle Mead
Oh, and my friend Snuggles at Rainbows and Books has a Reading for Whimsy feature on her blog, so I'll be reading either The Great Gatsby (again) or To Kill A Mocking Bird (which was my vote)
I almost forgot, Jaclyn at JC's Book Haven flipped my switch about Kim Harrison. So I'll have a book from that series at the ready for a while since I'm only on the first one.
Lastly, I'll be reading at least one Craig Johnson book (the Walt Longmire series - adapted to the TV series I mentioned above).
Come and play. Vent, chat, sing, post whatever is on your mind. Think Out Loud is just that kind of meme!
