Time to update my intro information again, since I just had another birthday. I'm 34 now. Not much else has changed, though. Quick info about me:

34, married to my husband of 13 1/2 years. No children, but a lovey cat named Beto and a little precious dog named Ginger. We live in Columbus, Ohio.

One of my biggest health struggles is being a Type 2 Diabetic. It is not well controlled right now, but I'm working on it diligently. It's more than a full time job some ...
Time to update my intro information again, since I just had another birthday. I'm 34 now. Not much else has changed, though. Quick info about me:

34, married to my husband of 13 1/2 years. No children, but a lovey cat named Beto and a little precious dog named Ginger. We live in Columbus, Ohio.

One of my biggest health struggles is being a Type 2 Diabetic. It is not well controlled right now, but I'm working on it diligently. It's more than a full time job some days. Slow and steady wins the race, though.

My other big health challenge is, obviously, my weight. As of this morning {6/13/14}, I weigh 268.2 by my home scale. That's down 23 lbs from my all time highest weight of 291. I've been stuck in pretty much the same weight range for a couple years, but I'm ready and motivated to get the scale going the right way.

I think that covers the basics about me. If anyone has any questions, just ask!

If you watch The Lady Vanishes make sure it is the one from 1938 with Michael Redgrave and directed by Hitchcock. There were several remakes not so good. Also Suspicion with Joan Fontaine and Cary Grant is a good one, also directed by Hitchcock. Supposedly they reshot the ending because no one could believe Cary Grant as a villain although the book which I also read the character played by Cary Grant really was a villain.

I like a lot of the comedies too from the 30s. I love the manners and dress although I could not see getting so dressed up in dress, stockings, high heels, hat and gloves just to go somewhere. So much better these days.

I think you will really like the book Rebecca. I like some of DuMauriers; books but this is her best by far. I found a first edition of the book signed by DuMaurier in a used book store for one dollar. I gave it to younger daughter for a Christmas present.

Hope you have a great day!! Let me know if you like The Lady Vanishes. Also highly recommend And Then There Were None if Netflicks has that one too.

Off to the hospital today. emoticon

Thanks for stopping by my blog. That fire really did freak me out. I'm still freaked out about it to be honest. Scary.

I love the Uninvited too!! It cracks me up that they are out sailing and Ray Milland is in a suit and tie and Gail Russell is wearing a dress. But really a good movie. Another one like I said is The Lady Vanishes based on Agatha Christie's disappearance for a few days. It is really funny in parts. One is where these foreign spies are speaking gibberish for a foreign language. Hilarious but otherwise the movie is really good. And if you have never read Rebecca by Daphne DuMaurier and can find it in your used book store, I highly recommend it.

Hubby is doing well. He went earlier than planned almost as soon as we checked in. Apparently the doctor was ahead of schedule. The therapists came to get him up an hour after he got out of recovery which I think was way too soon but they leave at 5 and came at 4:45 and he just got back from recovery at 3:30. His BP was low and he was dizzy so they did not get him up but said the nurses would get him up later in the evening. He took his pain med and then started to fade so my son and I came home so he could sleep. I think once his pain goes away a bit he will be glad he had it done but before the pain med he kept asking me why I let him go through it. DUH!! He was in pain before the surgery and the ortho said to me when my hubby was in recovery that he was glad he had it done since the osteoarthritis was more severe than showed up on X-ray.

I read while I was waiting. All Fall Down by Jennifer Weiner. Chick lit but it was really getting interesting. I read a few other books by her and all were good. In Her Shoes was made into a movie with Cameron Diaz and Toni Collette.

Long day and time for me to emoticon Hope you have a good night!!!

Funny here we were talking about Hitchcock's movies in the 30s and tonight, although not a Hitchcock movie but in the same vein was And Then There Were None. Agatha Christie. Great movie, 1945. The book is really good too but the movie is much better. WHoever adapted it for a screenplay had a great twist at the end. Another favorite old movie is Gaslight with Ingrid Bergman and Charles Boyer. I once saw the original made a few years before in 1940 and the remake with Ingrid Bergman was so much better. I love watching old movies. It was one thing I did with my mom when I was growing up. It was our special time to watch old movies. She knew all about all the movie stars from way back when and I can still recall most of her stories. Drives my hubby crazy while we are watching one and I start to tell him all about some scandal about whatever actor is in the movie. Funny too what was considered a scandal way back then is pretty much accepted behavior these days.

Anyway just had to tell you about that movie being on TCM tonight. If you ever get a chance to watch it I think you would like it.

Time for emoticon You have a great night too!!!
