So what, pray tell, have I been doing with my free time?

For another, I suffered through all three Paranormal Activity movies. Why do I do this to myself, suffer through insufferable movies? What is it I’m hoping to find? I thought about this a lot and realized that I am trying to see if any of these so-called scary movies will ever live up to their hype. Apparently the answer is a resounding “no” and yet I keep giving it a try. What scares me most about these movies is that people actually paid hard earned cash to see them. Maybe I can understand a movie audience being suckered into seeing the first one in the theaters (and I would have probably walked out and demanded my money back because I don’t think it would be possible for anyone to make a movie more tedious than these three are). But then there are sequels. Not one but TWO and, unless I miss my guess, there’s going to be a fourth movie made because the only reason I watched them at all is that I kept hearing the third one was really great.
If by “great” someone means incredibly boring and inane, then they are absolutely right. I really tried to just watch the movies and not do anything else but I simply couldn't do it. But I managed to get a few things done in spite of my mental burnout.
While I was torturing myself with tedium, my daughter was destroying yet another phone. So she had to get a new phone and now, because we still share the same phone plan, we now have data on our cellphones. Shhhhhh . . . I refuse to use data on my phone. I already think that having a cellphone is intrusive and the thought of people thinking I can access my email or whatever from anywhere at any time is not something I want to encourage. Of course, I’d have to actually see if the data was added to both phones or just hers but I abide by the truism “ignorance is bliss” and for now I’m blissfully content believing my phone is data-free. Forever, if I have anything to say about it.
One week from today, we will be celebrating my birthday (although my birthday is actually on the 4th). I’ve narrowed down my cake choices to three—all are sugar free or at least no sugar added. After all, milk has sugar in it and if I choose a cake that has nuts or fruit (or both!), it will have still more sugars. Not necessarily “added” but definitely some sugars. We also plan on making our own ice-cream although don’t ask me what kind because until I decide on a cake, the ice cream is undecided.
It’s a good thing I have a whole week to figure these things out. What I choose, it will be delicious.
