Good to see you, Friday. What took you so long to get here? It's been an interesting week. Work is busy with all sorts of projects. At home, we're just a bunch of bumps on a log with colds. I'm feeling a lot better, but Dan looked this morning the way I felt Wednesday. Poor guy - he's been such a great nurse to me despite feeling crappy himself.
On Wednesday night, Dan surprised me with a bootleg copy of The Lovely Bones. I loved the book, but the movie was kinda weird. If you haven't read the book, it's about a 14-year-old girl who was murdered by a creepy neighbor and her father's quest to find her killer. The weird thing is, she's kind of trapped in the In Between, a place made up of part heaven, part Earth and she can watch them. Part of it were very moving, but I'm not sure it translated well. The story itself was great, but the visual effects made it super cartoony. Interesting representation, 2.5 stars.
This weekend will hopefully have us both in good spirits. We ordered a futon for our spare bedroom that should be here soon. So we need to organize said room to make way for said futon. It's become the overflow space for boxes of my clothes, Dan's stuff and wedding gifts that don't have a home in the kitchen. We also have art stuff in there. So we need to figure out how to make the room functional for multiple purposes without being too cluttered.
On Sunday, we plan to go to Scott and Melissa's for Family Art Funday. We missed last week's event - they painted cherry blossom trees, and Melissa's 6-year-old, Dawson, was so literal, he painted a tree with bunches of three cherries like you'd see on a slot machine. Soooo cute! I'm not sure of the subject for this week, but I'm excited to get together with friends and paint and BBQ. So our weekend will have a nice mix of relaxing and productive.
And if you wouldn't mind, please send sunny vibes to Baltimore for the next few days. The lovely Lauren at Salt Says leaves for her destination wedding (yay!!) in Turks & Caicos on Tuesday morning and they're forecasting snow.
