I'm a poor updater

I've been very poor about updating this lately. The house flipping is taking all of my time and energy, I'm very behind in all of my reading (oh, what else is new with that!)
I haven't even had any new reviews posted because last month was a heavy one for Romantic Times. This month I haven't even started on my RT books and I really need to get busy.

I'm currently reading Grace in Thine Eyes by Liz Curtis Higgs. It's fantastic. Somewhat related to the trilogy (it contains many of the same characters) but it really stands alone because it's about Davina, the daughter of Jamie and Leana. It's taken from the story of Dinah in the book of Genesis.

I just finished listening to Can You Keep a Secret by Sophie Kinsella, which was a cute and light diversion from some of the heavier things I've been reading and listening to. I'm now listening to Prep by Curtis Sittenfeld. It's all right, nothing really engrossing about it so far. We'll see, I just started today.

I'm a little disgusted that Lost has had so many repeats, and even repeats from the first season. Don't they know we want new episodes? It seems like Grey's Anatomy has had tons of new episodes and Lost has had very few. What's up? They say that they have 24 episodes over a 35 week season. So far it appears they've run 15 episodes. Which doesn't seem like all that many considering we're halfway through March. They must have a ten episode sweep coming up here soon!

Movies we've watched recently:
I finally finished all of the Sex and the City episodes. I really enjoyed this show. I was glad to watch it on DVD though, because I'm not the most patient person in the world. But if I had HBO I probably would have watched it when it was on TV.

Watched Just Like Heaven again this week. I got it from the library so LeeRoy could watch it. I saw it at the theater. It's a cute movie, I think I'm going to buy it to add to Kimber's chick lit collection.

The Thing About My Folks--Very cute and touching movie. Funny in parts and had a lot to say about our relationships with our parents. I realized how much I miss watching Paul Reiser in Mad About You!

11:14--Really interesting premise. Lots of different people all following their different storylines and how their lives all intersected in some way at 11:14 one night. Kept me interested all the way through.

Rent--I have never seen the stage production, so I enjoyed this one all right. I know that I would like it a lot better on the stage though, it just seems made for that more than for a movie. The music is fantastic and makes the movie worth watching regardless of the format.

We've got quite a few movies to watch this weekend: Junebug, A History of Violence, Proof, Lord of War, and whatever they ship next--probably Where the Truth Lies. I love Netflix.

Ok, I've got to put in some time reading while everyone's at church.
