My family's Thanksgiving feast is over and I've gained five pounds. I ate until my insides hurt. We celebrate Thanksgiving every year the Sunday before at my sister's house. Food, food, food everywhere. It was a delicious delight! We also drew names of who we'll be buying Christmas gifts for this year. As for the actual day, I think we'll just do a small meal at the house. Nothing extra fancy.
After the feast, a few of us got together and went to see New Moon in the theater. It's rare that I go anywhere or do anything that doesn't involve the kids or husband. Not that I mind being with them, but it was refreshing to do my own thing. If you know anything about Twilight, then I'm sure you've heard of the books and movies. Some people are die-hards. I consider myself somewhere in the middle. I like the series, but I'm not gaga over the whole sensation. I read the first book and was drawn in. However, the second book bored me to tears and I couldn't finish it.
New Moon is based upon the second Twilight series novel. I got my tickets in advance and it's a good thing I did. The movie sold out quickly and it was packed elbow to elbow. Of course when Jacob arrived on scene, girls swooned. The same was done for Edward. I'm not overly crazy about either of them. Although they're great actors, I'm not a swooner for either. I'd say that I'm more of a Team Bella kind of person. She's pimpin' it with two guys!
The movie was enjoyable, much better than the book for me. I found that it's necessary to watch the first movie or read the books before watching this or it may be over your head.
I've gotten a bunch of Christmas presents wrapped. Since the tree's not up, they're all sitting in a pile on my kitchen floor. I think we may get the tree put up sometime next weekend. I'm finally getting into the Christmas spirit. Although I still think this year has gone waayyyyy to fast for me.
