Hey, look, I know things are a mess. I took a hiatus from blogging and decided to switch up my design before returning. Please be patient, because if you can wait out the mess it means REGULAR POSTING WILL RETURN SOON! :D

Horror Films

I don't watch scary movies. Mostly because I'm a big wuss. I don't understand the appeal of choosing to spend a couple of hours feeling absolutely tense and uncomfortable. About the scariest movie I can handle (on a good day) is Signs. Pathetic? Maybe.

But it gets more pathetic. Why? Pregnancy. Yes, those pesky hormones have caused my scary movie aversion to soar to levels well above the atmosphere.

A while back Adam and I picked up a copy of "The Spiderwick Chronicles" on DVD for 3 bucks. We had taken some nieces and nephews to see it earlier this year and both thought it was pretty good. If nothing else it was cute.

I have not been able to bring myself to watch it again.

We finally popped it in the other night and about 60 seconds in I flipped out and told Adam "I can't watch this!" That's right. I got too scared remembering the movie to even try watching it. I couldn't watch a children's movie, a movie rated PG ("for scary creature action and violence, peril and some thematic elements"), a movie my 4 year old* niece seemed to handle just fine (her only complaint was that it was too loud at times).

I once made fun of my dad for being scared of the flying monkeys (from "The Wizard of Oz") when he was a kid.

At least he was only frightened by kid's movies when he was a kid.

*I'm not actually positive she's 4 years old, but close enough.

If it makes you feel better, Sam gets scared of the shark that chases Ariel in The Little Mermaid. I too couldn't handle anythign scary when I was pregnant. I get so into movies all the time that even not pregnant I cannot handle scary movies.

Hmmm...does it make me feel better to know a 2 year old gets scared by kid's movies? Eh, not so much. Ha ha ha ha!!! :P But it is good to know I'm not the only *adult* who can't handle the scary stuff.

This is unrelated, but I realized the other day I never got back to you about your card/christmas announcement. If you are still interested in doing something, please contact me at mikeloveland@gmail.com

and by the way, our babys should be born around the same day. Thats pretty cool.
