We received a red envelope in our mailbox yesterday…and we all know what that means!  Movie night!!  It was a surprise what the envelope would contain but we we were excited nonetheless.  Well the movie that we pulled out was ‘Taken’.  Has anybody else seen that?  Wow…talk about intense!  I loved it!  Crazy huh!!  My precious little brother was trying to get me to watch it for the longest time but I refused because…well probably just because I was stubborn and usually I don’t like movies like that.  For some reason though, this one I liked.  It brought out the younger Anna in me when I secretly wanted to be an FBI agent. 🙂  I know funny huh.  Well it’s true.  I guess I just like the whole concept of good guys winning, bad guys getting squashed like bugs. Is that bad?  After it was over I fell back into this idea that I wanted to be the best kung fu fighter (or something) ever!  I’m serious too!  I told my husband that I really wanted to take a self-defense class and our conversation consisted of explanations and even demonstrations of what I would do if I was attacked.  It was comical.  But then we stopped.  The whole idea was just too scary and depressing.  Hopefully that will never happen but who knows?  Maybe in a few months I’ll be able to kung fu you. hehe  

Kung Fu ‘Anna’   

Isn’t life Blissful?

(Picture my husband took this morning on bike ride with friends)

I know, I know.  You’re saying, “And she said she’d never start a blog”  Well here I am…you (whoever you are out there) were right, I was wrong…blah blah.  Yesum, I have succumbed. And you know what?  I am actually kind of excited!  It turns out that I actually have some things going on in this dirty blonde haired head of mine (that is in desperate need of a haircut btw, hopefully today!) Most my life I have been the kind of person that when someone asks, “Whatcha thinking about?”, my usual response is, “Nothing” followed by my thinking, “What was I thinking about? What am I thinking about now?  Well now I’m thinking about thinking!”  It’s pretty frustrating… 🙂 Does that happen to anyone else?  I guess I haven’t mastered the art of pinning down and keeping track of my thoughts….they are just in a constant flow; scattered and BLISSFUL.  Hence the idea to start depositing my thoughts here.  And yes, life is Bliss.  It’s a word that I find reaches just the tip of how I feel.  Maybe through this process I will discover more of those words.  Yes I am sure I will.
