3 Things Thursday.......I'm Back!!

1. School Times - school has started and it's finally in full swing. Online grades are up, girls are doing great, carpool has settled down, afternoon bus deliver has sped up (not in a bad way) and we are in the groove. Those who know me well know I hate school buses - the drivers I've seen are too fast and it scares me that there are no seat belts. But Ms. Veronica who drives our bus is great. She loves the kids and takes good care of them. The girls are doing well in school and both have adjusted well to being in new schools. I also love the fact that going home to the babysitter allows them to relax, have a snack and finish homework before I even get home. It makes our evenings much less stressful. This is going to be a GREAT year - I can just feel it.

2. No Patience - As I've aged (and I'm still YOUNG), I find that I have lost patience with ignorance, stupidity, fake people and just pure laziness. That covers a lot of things, a lot of issues and certainly a lot of people. It seems as if people are losing their will to do good, to do well and to just be nice. I see rudeness at school (children learn what they live with), driving down the road, at work, shopping - everywhere. It makes me so sad that some people just trudge through life with no ambition, no desire to do better for themselves or their fellow man and absolutely no clue as to what is really going on around them. Needless to say - I pray a lot and at the top of my prayer list is a prayer for myself and my own patience and control of tongue :-)

3. The Help - I've been to see The Help and I highly recommend it. I am still reading the book and it is as good as the movie. The movie is PG-13 because they chose to heighten the amount foul language in it - particularly in regards to The Jackson Journal newspaper editor. He was a little over the top in more ways than one :-) But the movie is very thought provoking. It will make you laugh, cry and feel more emotions in a 2 1/2 hour span that you've felt all year. It is actually a very educational movie - and it deserves any Oscar nomination that it gets. Emma Stone (Skeeter), Octavia Spencer (Minny), Bryce Dallas Howard (Hilly / Ron Howard's daughter in real life) and Viola Davis (Aibileen)all gave outstanding performances. The cast could not have been better chosen. If you haven't been to see it, take the time to do so before it leaves your local movie theater!
