It's Monday again already?
Wasn't it just Monday yesterday? Why does Monday come around faster and more often then Saturday? I to have been unmotivated to blog creatively lately so this will be another rambling of my mind and thoughts, or lack of thoughts for that matter. I do have a good blog going on in my head right now but it needs some work, so maybe in a few days. I took my all day camera class on Saturday and my head was spinning by the time I left. That was way to much information to fit into my head in a short amount of time. I did learn what the buttons on my
camera mean, so that was a plus. Now I just have to learn how to actually use them. My thoughts on that are: If it works so well in the automatic position then why bother? The first half of the workshop was about digital camera and photography, that went pretty well. However the second half was about picture editing using Adobe Photoshop CS. That is about the time my head started to spin. My computer lingo does not go far past blog and IM and I felt like I had
just come out of a cave from the dark ages. It was amazing what the program was capable of doing. It just was not capable of doing it under my capabilities. The program costs $650 US for all my Canadian readers, and my husband is trying to pirate it as we speak, but don't tell anyone. They do have a class Called into to Photoshop so if I get my grubby little hands on that software I will probably take that class, and further confuse myself. Yesterday we spent the day basking in the sun at our favorite beach with my sunscreen applied evenly, and to my eye lids as well. It was also accompanied by my favorite ice cold Corona, topped with a fresh lime. Does life get any better then that? Then we came home BBQ'd some chicken Caribbean Jerk style and ate until our belly's were content. Finished the weekend off with a movie after the kids went down, and what do you know it's Monday again!
We filled out taxes this weekend, and I am telling you it is great having three cute tax deductions I mean children living with us. That alined with the fact that we make no money make for a wonderful return!!! We made a list of everything we wanted to buy, set aside money for our romantic vacation, paid off 5 credit cards and still have some money left over. Life is great when you have money! We even made a plan to get out of debt this year, and for the first time in my life I am actually excited about it. I usually have a theory that we can just rack up all the credit cards and then hope the rapture happens before the credit card companies catch up with us. This may not be a realistic theory, but hey it worked for me thus far. However we have come to the end of our run with credit. The end meaning every card we own is maxed. So it is time to shape up or ship out! I will let you know how long this new found dept free plan lasts. I am predicting it will go very well until I see the new spring line at The Gap!
Since I seem to be the only one that watches this many movies I will try to let you know what I see and what I rate it so you can skip the not so great ones. That being said, movies watched this week are:
The Weeping Camel. This was a new release that I read and thought might be a good one to watch with the kids. DO NOT RENT THIS MOVIE. It was a documentary about a family (WHO DOES NOT SPEAK ENGLISH) takes in a camel who's mother rejected it. We saw the first 20 minutes when Addison says"mom what are they saying?" not even subtitles. So we took it out and watched Hermie the Common Catapillar instead.
First Daughter: Katie Holmes, cute in a chick flick teeny bopper sort of way. Not one to sit and watch with the hubby but definitely watchable.
Head in The Clouds: Charlize Theron, Penelape Cruz or how ever you spell her name, pretty decent movie. Civil War time, basic spoiled rich party girl meets poor fight for you country boy tied in with a ex stripper/girl lover who create an odd love triangle. The realities of the world and war pop there little bubble, and life goes on.
Friday Night Lights: great movie, true storey, your typical Texas highschool football movie!
Oh one more thing before I go, does anyone out there know the rules of fasting? Like can you drink just water or are the other things you can have? I am thinking of doing a three day fast but wasn't sure what the guide lines are, and I do not do research, so if anyone out there has any advice let me know.
That's it for now folks! Thanks for tuning in!
