November’s Movies, $ for charity, & a house update

So, as of the 4th of this month we are back home.  Home being relative because we are essentially living in our kitchen and family room (with laundry room and half bath access) while we finish everything up.  The family room has no flooring, just a subfloor with big rug and two mattresses (one air) on the floor.  We have one stool and one outside metal chair to sit on in the kitchen.  The good news is we’ve cleared our pod, so we have all of our clothes, kitchenware (minus small appliances) and a few small decorative shelves.  We’ve ordered furniture, we finish the mold cleanup in the basement this weekend and the painters are here this week.  Things are moving along.  I’m sleeping on the queen air mattress with Gage and I have to admit that my sleep isn’t so great but the nightly snuggles with my kid are priceless and I’ll miss them when we move back into the rest of the house at the end of the year.

But, I’m back on track with movies!  Since we have no furniture we have found excuses to head to the recliner seats at the theater 🙂

Add your 5 words (or less!) to mine in a comment and earn $1 for charity.  Once we get to $100 the person with the most reviews will choose the charity.  Click here to see the past winners, the charities they chose and the other reviews you can add to.  Anyone is welcome to join in at any time.

We’re at $98 right now.  Let’s get the final three so a charity can get much needed end of the year money.

Same old redeemable green miser.

Why, why , why do I keep watching Nicolas Sparks movies when I always hate them so?  They often have my favorite actors 😦

What? The? Fudge?    (Heather)

    I’m sure you’re ready to be back in your house. I’m so glad the work is almost done.

    I haven’t seen any of those movies. I thought about going to see Bohemian Rhapsody but have read mixed things about it and now I’m leaning toward waiting for streaming.

    Nicholas Sparks…I just can’t. I enjoyed A Walk to Remember and The Notebook. I watched the NIghts of Rodanthe and I was like what? The? Fudge? That’s my review for that one!

    I haven’t seen the others but want to. I think we’ll hit the Grinch movie over winter break.
