I didn’t watch a lot of tv growing up. Then, while married to The Marine, we lived without cable or bunny ears more often than not, but we still managed to go see a movie at least every couple weeks. After my divorce and before the move to Alaska, I still saw movies with friends, but I lived without tv.
In Alaska, I saw a few movies before Dude was born, not so many afterwards. I had cable, but was rarely home to watch it. Rather, I was much too busy working. I can’t call work a dreary drudgery because it wasn’t. I loved my job. It was fulfilling.
But, as a single mom, movies just weren’t in the cards unless I pulled A LOT of overtime. Then, I’d buy a movie or two on dvd.
As I write this, I am watching The Notebook on tv. I recorded it on the dvr over the weekend. Most everyone I know is amazed that I haven’t seen The Notebook before now.
Well, I’m movie deprived! What can I say? I was once too busy to watch a movie and maybe a little to ADD to sit through one.
But now, I have time. I don’t have a whole lot better to do.
So, what movies do you guys recommend I see? Have any favorites? Suggestions?
