Man do the days really pass by. It's almost Easter already and I feel like we were just celebrating the new year. When I was in my very early teens I remember thinking so many times that I wish the time would just pass by faster so I could be older already. Now I wonder what kind of paint I had been sniffing. In 1989 when I was 6 I remember a phone conversation my mom had with one of her friends and her saying "I cannot believe it is going to be 1990!" 1990. Seems like eons ago. Well, I guess it was. One day I'm going to wake up and think 2012 was so long ago too. I wonder what I'll look like when I'm old.
Did any of you see Hunger Games? I read the books last spring and was really excited about the movie. I really liked it a lot, and really I read the books so long ago now that I forgot so many of the tiny written details which allowed the movie and all it lacked compared to the book to actually be enjoyable. I thought Jennifer Lawrence was a great Katniss. And of course I cried when Rue died.
Easter is next weekend. Yesterday I bought 7 bags of candy, partly for our 4th annual adult Easter egg hunt. I am planning on making the rum cake again, gosh it's just so good. I think I'm going to try Martha's basic egg dying technique this year with my sister. Basically it's just food coloring and vinegar.
You know me, I love a holiday!
