Too A.D.D. for a simple movie?

What happened to sitting down and watching a movie?

It's Friday night. I finally arrived home from work at 11pm. Yes, 11. Not that I didn't go in at 8am. When we have a filing deadline, life gets like this. And I love it.

I live for craziness. For juggling. For multitasking.

Lately I have been melancholy because with the kids gone and the job slow, well, there is no multitasking. No insanity. No craziness.

This week? I have it in spades.

And so, the brief filed, my deadlines met, I come home to a fire, a glass of wine, a movie and...facebooking, blogging, research (on a personal level) . When did this last bit of "and" come into my life? When did I forget how to sit down by myself and simply watch a movie?

When did I become my children?


Back to the movie which, ironically, is "Age of Innocence." A movie about NY in the 1800's. No computers. No multimedia. One of the main characters is a lawyer (a guy of course). Somehow this whole situation is making me shake my head at myself.

Happy Friday my friends. I hope you're having a better Friday night than 1/2 watching a bad movie by yourself while cruising the internet and wondering if it's worth it to get your sad butt off the lazyboy couch and stoke the fire that is dying....

The habit of multitasking really makes it difficult to enjoy the present moment. I'm working on placing more emphasis on the moment. Now get some rest!

I can't surf and watch tv/movies at the same time. You are much too talented!

I do occasionally make myself turn off everything and JUST watch a movie (we are so alike my juggling friend) and I am always grateful I have done so.
