Guess that flick

Okay, I got this idea from OhAmanda. It's really fun and I did pretty well with hers so I thought I'd give it a try.

Here are the rules:

1. Pick 10 of your favorite movies.
2. Go to IMDb and find a quote from each movie.
3. Post them for everyone to guess.
4. Strike it out when someone guesses correctly, and put who guessed it and the movie.
5. No Googling or IMDb-ing. That’s cheating and that’s no fun.

Have fun with it and if you decide to participate leave your link.
Here are my quotes:

1. Yes you're very smart. Shut up. - The Princess Bride- Great job Wendy.

2. That's because of your Captain Hook complex. - One Fine Day: starring George Clooney and Michelle Pfiffer.

3. I know he can get the job but can he DO the job? I'm NOT arguing that with you. - Joe vs. The Volcano: starring Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan.

4. I see in your eyes the same fear that would take the heart of me. A day may come when the courage of men fails, when we forsake our friends and break all bonds of fellowship, but it is not this day. -Return of the King- Wendy

5. Forgive me if I get a little emotional, but this is the day every mother dreams of. The day she watches her only daughter put a lock on her bedroom door, to keep her husband out. - Laws of Attraction: starring Pierce Brosnan and Julianne Moore.

6. It never rained on the night of a Larrabee party, the Larrabees wouldn't have stood for it. - Sabrina: starring Harrison Ford and Julia Ormond

7. There were no F names in the Bible so Ma named him Frankincense because he smelled so sweet. - Seven Brides for Seven Brothers

8. You're late. When you asked me if I was doing anything later, I didn't realize you'd actually forgotten. I thought it was playful banter. -The Incredibles- Great job to tara

9. I'll never understand what possessed my mother to put her faith in God's hands, rather than her local geneticist. - Gattaca - Way to be Josh(My "Little" Brother)

10. Yeah, yeah. I would've asked for your number. And I wouldn't have been able to wait 24 hours before calling you up and saying, Hey, how about... oh, how about some coffee, or drinks, or dinner, or a movie... for as long as we both shall live? - You've Got Mail

So, how did you do? Did you guess them?

Updated: I'm a movie fanatic but I guess I didn't realize how big of one till doing this. This was so much fun I'm gonna do it again sometime. Thanks for all the guesses.

He's always on time. . .

I haven't written in a while. Like that's anything new. lol.

But I want to share what has been going on with us lately. My husband has worked for the same church for almost 9 years. He's a great employee and everyone who knows him says he's way too underpaid. They fired his assistant about two months ago and they still expect him to keep things going as if there were still 2 people doing the work.

Ridiculous, right?

Well as if that's not enough. For the past 9 years, he's been working every Sunday. Which means we don't go to church together. And let me tell you that as 2 pastors kids we know that's not okay. It's really started to get harder cause the kids and I have been going to a new church that's awesome.

So anyways, today my husband was going in to give his notice. No, we didn't have a job to go to. Crazy? Yup. But we felt that this was the right decision. But when he got there he couldn't get a word in. Every time he opened his mouth someone interrupted him. Which is funny to me cause my husband loves to talk. And the fact that he couldn't get a word in is ironic.

So he gave up and came home thinking to go in tomorrow and tell them that he's leaving. Still having no idea what we would be doing after he leaves. So he comes home takes a nap and gets to work on some business stuff. When out of the blue, the phone rings. . .it's our friend from Colorado and he offers my husband a job! What???

It's almost 2x what he makes now and it's working with one of my husbands best friends! And here's the other thing. We might not have to move. It might be a e-commute deal. We'd only have to go out there 5x per year. How awesome is that? Just when we think that we can't take it anymore God shows us the way.

So anyways, I thought I'd let you know what craziness has been going down here in my house.
