well it's another sunny day here in good ole arkansas. i have to work a lot this week. but that's okay cause i don't have to work as many weekends this month. so i'll take it. can you believe it is already may 2017? that just seems surreal. i swear life just continues to go by faster and faster every year.
this weekend, it rained. like a TON. the rain was gushing under our backyard's fence so hardcore that our fence is now leaned over quite a bit. and now our backyard is full of mud. barry had it looking so good, too. check out this video to get an idea at how much rain we got. yes, barry and i went out riding again this weekend to get my jeep all muddy again. it was lookin a little too clean. we also had us a movie marathon this weekend. what with all the bad weather our little "bunny ears" weren't holding up really well so i made sure we rented some movies so my husband didn't throw it out into the rain. bless him. i guess i am going to have to cave and get him 'real' cable tv soon.
we watched these on saturday night:
and on sunday we watched these:
la la land and lion were both best picture nominees. but outta the three fantastic beasts and where to find them was the best one we watched. heck, outta the six it was the best one we watched. in our opinions, anyway. and once again, i still believe manchester by the sea should've won best picture. i still have to see this one and this one to make my final decision. if only the movie that did win wasn't about a gay, black kid growing up in the hood...like it got picked solely because that's what it is about. no doubt about it. every year that get more and more political with their winner.
anyways, enough about movies. let's get on with the reason for this post. i know it's may 2017 and 2016 was like four months ago, but i've just been wanting to post these quotes. 2016 was a roller coaster ride for me. i'm talking ups and downs and ups and downs. times where i was ecstatic with excitement and times when i just wanted to throw up. 2016 taught me a lot about myself. i finally learned to let go of
this is undeniably true.
thank you, baby jesus, i only got an hour left of work. i was going to go to my other job after i leave here but one of my friends just texted me to see if i wanted to go and join in for happy hour at this place and hey, that sounds waaay better than work, right? right.
