Perspective...Part 1 Million

There's so much that I could write here for the umpteenth time. Last week we went to see 'Straight Outta Compton'. Back in the day, you know 1991 or so, I didn't see'Boyz in the Hood' until it was out on video. It was a great movie. 'Straight Outta Compton' was also great, but this blog isn't about 'that'. The perspective, rather MY perspective, of the movie will be different than many who read this update.

I wrote that we went to see a movie because it's a bit of our current routine. We have seen 3 movies in the last 4-6 weeks or so. That is more movies that we have seen in the entire 3-5 years prior. It gets us out, we can go at an off-peak time and avoid people. Every day is a little different and more of the same right now. Amy has more of a routine than I have managed to develop.

I get done what needs to get done though last week I felt quite unproductive. Amy has a few TV shows that she enjoys watching. More than before because we have basic 'cable' here at the apartment. Last part of her routine...she was watching Rachel Ray. I am pretty neutral on Rachel Ray, but if you like cheese in your food, you will be a big fan. It was a repeat.

I stopped whatever I was doing, probably surfing the net looking for possible jobs or something related to the upcoming deer season or maybe something triathlon related. I stopped and watched Rachel Ray because she had Tom Brokaw on her show. He spoke a bit about his Multiple Myeloma diagnosis and life with cancer. Since Amy is not on any TV shows just yet, your insight comes vai my writing and our blog.

I encourage you to watch the following videos. They are short once you get past the ads, but "Mr. B" (2nd video) puts into spoken words many of the same things that we have been experiencing.
