Random Tuesday Thoughts

My heart goes out to all those impacted by the horrific tornado in Moore, Oklahoma. I can not imagine. I know I’ve been going through some family “stuff” here, but it is dwarfed in comparison to what all of those people will be dealing with for days, weeks, months to come. Mother Nature has no mercy.

Joining in with Stacey at “Stacey Uncorked” for Random Tuesday Thoughts! Thankfully she’s back up and running after a couple of very frustrating days last week with her laptop! Cloning is bad, very very bad!

It seems as if spring has finally arrived. We’ve had some pretty nice days lately, as well as some rain. It looks like Memorial Day here will be very nice. We have a ceremony and a parade to attend, and a couple years it has been so hot it was uncomfortable for us, not to mention all those in the parade!

I’ve been off work for a couple days. These days have been the most relaxed that I have been in some time. There is still some “anxiety” under the surface, as there are still some unanswered questions, and details that need working out, but I am not living every moment in a heightened state of anxiousness.  Teenagers are tough!

Tara and I went to see Star Trek Into Darkness on Sunday.

I had won a contest at work and the prize was a $25.00 gift card of my choice. I choose a movie gift card with just this movie in mind!

The movie was GREAT. The “first” Star Trek movie back in 2009 was the one movie of all time that I saw the most often in the theater. FIVE TIMES. I could have sat through this one several more times on Sunday. I do not know what it is about these movies that make me love them so much. Oh wait, maybe it’s Chris Pine’s beautiful eyes?

We went to a new theater to us, inOaks, Pa,  and on the way in we say this… it reminds me of the globe that was at the World’s Fair in NYC. (Yes, I am old and I was there!)

 Yesterday (Monday) my mother and I spent time at our storage unit. When I moved back from FL, we combined two households, and Mom already had stuff in storage of her own. I downsized from a house with a garage and two extra rooms. At the time Tara was still into many of her toys, and while she parted with a great deal, she was obviously not ready to part with everything. I am just as guilty. There were several boxes that were never really even unpacked. Many Disney keepsakes, stuff for scrapbooking projects (who am I kidding?) and much more. I was able to get rid of a huge back of trash, and have sorted through some things to get rid of. Tara and I are headed over today for her to take a look at things. Mom’s church is having a Flea Market in a few weeks, maybe we can make some money off the stuff!

I’m working on a Memorial Day blogging project. I have shared the past two days letters that my brother Robin sent home from Vietnam. Robin was killed in Vietnam. I am finding it an interesting project. As I read and transcribe the letters to my blog, I find things I want to know more about. If you get a chance, check out my Letters from Robin series.

    I find the Star Trek shows (movies and TV) to be uplifting, inspirational, and spiritually rewarding – they tend to renew my faith in human kind.

    I’ll have to see this one – I’ve not gone to a theater in a long time since I can’t hear well enough to make out the dialog (I’m sure there is a place with closed captioning.)
