Hello beautiful people! I hope you have all had a great weekend and experienced much better weather than we have in Arkansas. It has rained everyday for the last 2 weeks. You could practically set your watch by it.
I laughed hard today when a friend said, "I'm thinking of moving somewhere it doesn't rain so much. Maybe Seattle." That pretty much sums up the weather situation lately.
So why is this post called Detours? Oh gracious, where to start....
I'm a very guarded person, (ironic for a blogger, huh?), and tend to keep mum about my personal life, which is typically pretty unexciting. As much as I wish I could share with everyone the cruddiness of the week I've had, I just can't give details. It wasn't just one event, it was several really un-fun things.
Let's just say my life has taken some pretty sudden detours within the past few days. I'm still processing everything that has happened, and trust me, it's daunting. But who of us hasn't gone through things where you just don't know what to do next? I'm there. But I'm still standing and have so much to be grateful for. So I'll get through this little detour and maybe, just maybe, find a better route along the way.
Whew. Ok, enough of this sappy mess : )
Let's talk about something I'm really excited about. Let's talk about Where the Wild Things Are?, the new movie based on the best-selling book by Maurice Sendak.
It drops on October 16 and I'm such a book nerd, I'll probably buy my tickets in advance. I think the most intriguing player in this film has got to be director Spike Jonze, since this movie is such a departure from his usual efforts. This book was one of my hands-down favorites when I was younger and I usually give it as a gift to any of my friends who have children.
So do you think you'll see Where the Wild Things Are? on October 16? What was your favorite book as a child or what do you enjoy reading to your own children now?
P.S.- Go HOGS!
