Looooong Weekend Recap

MENTAL STATUS: "Refreshed". I had a lot of good sleep this past weekend. Now I'm ready to do the room mom thing, write, and maybe get some Christmas decorations up.

I did nothing this past weekend.

Well, that's not true. I slept. A lot. I ate. A lot. (Went out to dinner a few times) And I rented some movies. Yeah, I know. Yawn. But sometimes, you need time like that.

Anyhew, the hubby and I watched Zodiac on Friday night. I was a little leery to watch it. I mean, come on. They never found the Zodiac killer. So what could this movie possibly tell me? And I like to watch movies with endings. Particularly "happily ever after" endings. I felt this was going to be a bomb of a night.

Well, this movie was really good! Aside from two minor killing scenes that I could have done without (because I'm a wuss), I still enjoyed the movie. It basically centered around the investigation that was done to find the killer but then it gave a general theory (a-la Oliver Stone) ending, which you left me satisfied that all that work they did was not for nothing.

Then on Saturday night, we rented Remember the Titans. Another goodie--but in a different way. Not bloody this time either. Had some drama, a little comedy, some feel-good moments--plus, Denzel Washington. You usually can't lose with him in a movie.

Now, I'm off to get ready for school. To my crit partners out there: I WILL get to your chapters. I WILL. Maybe not today, maybe not tomorrow, but if not by Wednesday, I will need to get myself a Franklin planner or something.

What did you do this Thanksgiving Day weekend?

Let's see, what did we do...

Ate. Ate. Napped. Ate. Watched football. Snacked. Did some laundry. Ate. Watched a movie. Snacked. Slept.

(Okay, and somehow in there I did read through and do a final polish on 100 pages.)

Gee, that's rare for you, but like you said, sometimes you just need to chill.

We enjoyed my son-in-law's culinary skill on Thursday, did a little shopping (not on Friday morning), got a little bit of writing done on Saturday and went to church yesterday. All in all it was a nice weekend.

Ate, ate, and ate. Between Thanksgiving, my niece's Friday night wedding and a visit to family and friends for lunch and dinner - yep - we ate a LOT!

Glad you had some down time too!
