Last night I actually left the house for something entertaining! My parents brought me to see Catching Fire at the theater.
It was really well done and followed the book very closely. I thought they handled the PTSD experienced by the victors in a very sincere and genuine way. Things are going to get really dark for Mockingjay Part 1 and 2!!
Other than my trip to the movies, I’ve basically been held captive by the fatigue monster. I’m trying to get presents in order for my family for Christmas, and I’m not in the spirit yet. It’s always been my favorite holiday, but now that my family is all much older, we’ve kind of drifted away from our annual big family gatherings, which were my favorite part and whole reason of loving the holiday. It doesn’t even feel like that time of year.
For the last four years or so, I’ve sent out a huge pile of holiday cards to most of my online best friends, but I have a feeling that I just won’t have the energy to get them done and out in time this year. I need to be more on the ball!
Are any of you in the holiday spirit yet, or is it feeling like an off year? Have any of you seen Catching Fire or read any of the books? I’d love to know your thoughts!
