Squeeze-in Movie

I thought  my life was busy before MLIT.  Now, I think it is absolutely insane.  I love the MLIT program, I love my kids, and I love my job, but balancing the three has turned into quite a feat.  Free-time and down-time are hard to comeby.  My youngest son needed a little mom time last Saturday – so much that he agreed to run errands with me.  While we were out and about, we saw that Target had The Avengers on sale.  We purchased it, but now I had to figure out when we could squeeze it in.  We came home and I got right to work on an MLIT  assignment.  Watching the movie was quite a motivator and the assignment was quickly completed.  Avengers here I come!

We settled in and started the movie.  To my surprise, my oldest joined us.  Bonus mom-time multiplied.

I am a huge Ironman fan, loved Thor, and was wowed by Captain America.  To see all the characters come together in one movie was amazing, plus the addition of Hawkeye and Black Widow took the superhero factor over the top.  I did not like The Incredible Hulk movie, but his character in this movie was well thought out. My hottie superhero pick would have to be Thor.  The abs, the eyes, and that Australian accent – oo la la.

The movie started out strong pulling all the characters together.  There was a point in the middle that I thought it started to drag, perhaps even went overboard on setting the stage for the action to come.  But let me say, that once the action started, it did not disappoint.  Loki was a convincing villain,  the alien “centipede” carriers were evil, freaky, and fast.

The ending seemed a perfect set-up for an Avengers 2.  It would be astounding if they could line up all those stars for a second round.

    I think I am going to borrow this expression. It is going to become my new favorite adjective. Let’s do a squeeze-in _____________________. I have all kinds of nouns I can follow it with. 🙂

    I have yet to see the Avengers, but I have heard such good things about it. Your blog post just adds to my yearning to see it! I am not even a huge superhero movie kind of gal, but hearing such great things about Avengers makes me want to see what all the fuss is about. I am glad you were able to squeeze-in some family time in the midst of all of your craziness!
