    What’s the last movie you watched?

    Finally got around to watching A Quiet Place. It was enjoyable, but... SPOILERS! Seriously? How in the world did none of the governments figure out that sound is what attracks them so sound is what can destroy them???!!! The governments obviously were aware of them as the newspapers plastered headlines on the creatures and how to protect yourself. And why was everyone so isolated? I understand not wanting to live in a city full of people, but obviously, it could be done because someone is manufacturing those newspapers. And it wasn't that the creatures were in overwhelming numbers--the family had written down that there were 3 confirmed sightings near their home. I can understand why a family alone may not be able to kill these creatures--but, come on! Militaries are more than capable of finding the weakness and exploiting it! I did enjoy the movie, but it was pretty predictable and I couldn't get past the obvious flaw. And that poor girl--she'll be scarred for life after thinking she was responsible for her brother's death and now taking on the responsibility of her father's death--she figured out about her aides and that she could have left it on to get rid of the creature.

    I'm surprised by...

    My husband was surprised by this too. He served his mission in this area and felt that Moses Lake was close to another temple. But, I thought temples (at least the ones here in the US) are based on general membership as well as priesthood membership. If that's true, then Moses Lake would have a need for a temple (general membership) and have the manpower (priesthood membership) to support the running of the temple.

    Sorry I haven't been as vocal on here. I've not been in a healthy mindset for the past few weeks. Physical, spiritual, or mental health. I'm back on my 5and1 plan today. By sticking closely to it, I can easily lose 5 lbs this first week. I won't be 100% this weekend as we have a family gathering and I plan on eating some good grilled meat (meat is good, but not the high fat, but delicious ones I plan on eating) and my sis-in-law's potato salad. I'm tired of being fat, too, @unixknight. My husband and I just returned from the Smoky Mountains. We did lots of walking/hiking. I enjoyed it and definitely did better than I would have last year before losing the weight I lost. But, I still have 50# to lose and I kept thinking how much better I would feel if I would stick with my health goals. While I know, intellectually, that I will always need to work on my health, sometimes I just get tired of fighting cravings and emotional eating. So, I give in--then I beat myself up over being normal and human. And as a health coach (I coach others in the program I'm doing), I would never in a million years think or say what I allow myself to think and say to myself. But, I feel that I'm in a better place mentally. So, now I'm back to focusing on my health (with planned variations from it). So, what I say to myself (and anyone else who is like me)--today is a new day...make a better choice now than you did yesterday or even a moment ago. Remember WHY you want to be healthy and keep that focused. When you are tempted to grab food that you know isn't healthy, remind yourself of why you want to be healthy and ask yourself if this choice moves you closer or further away from that.
  4. @NeuroTypical and @mirkwood, wasn't it Santa Hans who played music from Star Wars as the prelude for sacrament? And he played the Imperial March when the bishopric would come into the chapel to take their seats at the beginning of sacrament? I would have loved to have been there for that.

    Streaming Services

    We cut the cord to satellite about 4 years ago. I HATED letting it go, but it was just too expensive (and we didn't have any premium channels). I really miss cable/satellite for 2 reasons--sports (very hard to get football, basketball, or Olympics without cable) and DVR. We got an antennae for the TV to get the local channels and a Roku for all else. We had Amazon Prime for years, added Hulu and Netflix (got a 3 mo free giftcard and just kept it). If we could afford it (darn student loans!), I would go back to satellite. But, I don't see that happening until our debt has lowered significantly (probably about 8-10 years from now). When the Olympics come on, I usually get SlingTV for that time period. But then we ditch it. My husband doesn't watch much TV, but he watches a lot of Twitch and Youtube stuff. I'm the junkie who needs the TV/movies fix.

    Interpreter Foundation Film - Witnesses

    I loved the trailer. This looks very, very interesting to me. I like hearing both sides as I try to understand the thinking of others who don't believe as I do. (BTW, I love Susan Easton Black!)
  10. Yep. This person leveled this as an insult and while I did take it as such, it wasn't because of the words. I was insulted because it came from a dark emotion from a loved one. It really saddens me to see the world view of commandments and following the commandments to be a weakness or even detrimental. As if following the Lord's commandments makes me a thoughtless robot.
  11. You're wrong. (that was fun! I, too, am on that forum and the anti line is very clear and cleaned up quickly).
  12. I had someone very, very close to me accuse me of being a sheep when it comes to the church. And I confirmed that accusation. I am a sheep. A free thinking and free to choose sheep, but a sheep, nonetheless. I understand that there are people in the church who feel marginalized because they feel differently, think differently, struggle differently than what they perceive others to feel, think, or struggle. And I will always try to be loving, kind, and thoughtful to them. But, we are warned time and time again to be very careful with our criticisms of the prophets--and the members of the First Presidency and 12 Apostles are prophets, seers, and revelators. Are they fallible, mortal men? Of course. But, any criticism I might feel, I'm very careful to either share with a trusted, faithful friend to work out my feelings/thoughts or I keep it to myself. While that may be construed as sheep-like following, I'm ok with it. Christ thinks of me as His sheep, so I embrace that name calling. Put me in the camp of not appreciating the beginning of this article. I understand the overall thought and even agree with it. But, I do think it could have been approached differently. I am really ok with being accused of being a TBM (or is that now a TBLDS?) and a sheep. That's exactly who I want to be. I wish others were just as ok with being a sheep (which now appears to be a curse word or awful accusation).

    I'm doing well so far. Not perfect by any way, but better. I've had a truckload of stress this month and haven't gone too nutso except for a couple of days. I really am trying to focus one day at a time. We are going out for pizza tomorrow night so that has helped me to focus on eating healthy in the days leading up to pizza night. My struggle will be to go right back to healthy eating and not use this as an excuse to choose more unhealthy foods. One thing I've been doing to help is watching youtube videos on making healthy choices. Not only are these videos giving me knowledge and tools, they are inspiring and keeps me focused on my goals and WHY I want to choose health.

    I lost nearly 50# in the last year. One thing that surprised me the most was that my shoe size went down. I went from an 8.5 to 7.5 and in some shoes I even fit into a 6.5! I've never, ever been able to wear anything less than a 7.5! Sadly, I had to get rid of some of my shoes since I was literally walking out of them.

    It's a program I'm doing. Essentially, I eat 6 times a day -- about every 2-3 hrs. And they are small meals but nutritionally healthy. When I stick to the program, I feel better and am losing weight.
