So I was able to go home on Thursday until yesterday. It was so good to finally be able to see my mom in person after all of that news! She is back home now, doing well, supposed to be on bed rest for a couple weeks. They haven't scheduled the surgery yet but I will definitely go down again when they know.
On a lighter note, I've been reading A LOT lately. I mean a crazy amount. I haven't had cable in about a month so the only thing to occupy my time with is books! On a side note, I haven't had internet this week due to it just sucks. I've read more books in a month's time than I thought I would read this whole summer! Now my book taste varies EXTREMELY. I love good ole chick books, Christian fiction books, mystery books, horror, classic, etc. Honestly, two of my favorite books of all time are Dracula and How to Kill a Mockingbird. Quite different, right? But hey they are both classics. ANYWAYS, I just finished the original The Phantom of the Opera the other night. Obviously, I had to follow that up with actually WATCHING the movie. Duh. I absolutely LOVE the movie and can sing every word to the songs. But you know who I JUST recognized last night? Gerard Butler! I really hope some of you just realized this too because then I will feel better about myself. But YES! Gerard Butler is the Phantom! He is really singing and everything!
WOAH, right!? I was completely impressed by this. He has been in so many different kinds of movies! "P.S. I love you", "300", "How to Train your Dragon", "Law Abiding Citizen", "The Ugly Truth", etc. Awesome.
Listen to him talk about it and then just PLEASE listen to him sing below. It's crazy once you actually realize who you are listening too!
