Various and Sundry!

Good Evening!
I've not had much to blog about lately, can you tell?

Went to a movie Saturday night ~ The Other Boleyn Girl. It was not the best movie I've seen, but it was okay. I've read all of the Philippa Gregory books about Henry's reign and loved them all. Although fiction, they are really informative and pretty much based on history she's researched.

I really enjoy Natalie Portman and she delivered a great performance. Scarlet Johansson was also good! Eric Bana played Henry, and I think he was too pretty!!! Henry was supposed to be a handsome man in his younger years, but they did not age Eric at all. It was a little choppy and contrived, but glad we went.

Also went to the doctor last week for my physical, which is always fun!!!! He, as usual, told me to lose weight, get some exercise and take fish oil and B-Complex. UGGGGHHHHHH. I KNOW, I KNOW, I KNOW!!!!!! I told him my continued habit of not doing what he says keeps me coming back. He did not go for that.

I began the fish oil immediately ~ had some from when I quit taking it before! Then about 3 days into it, realized why I did not take that brand anymore ~ I broke out in hives. So I got more this weekend and began taking it, so we will see what happens.

I am supposed to go back in 3 months for him to re-check my cholesterol. If I behave, I will go back. If I don't I can cancel. How's that for dedication!!!!

My bible study group is looking for a short, easy study to do. We just completed Beth Moore's Stepping Up and it was great! I highly recommend it. Just before that, we did Discerning the Voice of God by Priscilla Shirer and Fingerprints of God by Jennifer Rothschild. I highly recommend BOTH of these. So you see, we need a lighter one.
