This post is untitled because I couldn’t think of anything clever to call it, and also because this post isn’t realy going to be about anything.  I have had a serious headache all day and whenever I tried to think of what I would write about after work, my head started to hurt even more.

My weekend was pretty good.  I think it was relaxing…I can’t really remember what I did.  I do know that it went by way too quickly and I did a lot of laundry.  Last night was the first night that I slept in my bed for a month and a half.  It wasn’t exactly the best night sleep I could have gotten, but a few hours are better than nothing.  My shoulder stayed sore all weekend and is still pretty sore today.  I hope that the medicine eventually kicks in and makes it all worth it.

It has been snowing here all day and it is supposed to snow all night, so I’m hoping for a snow day tomorrow, because sometimes you just need a snow day.

Tonight starts the new season of The Voice, and I am super excited.  I mean, how can it be bad when Usher is joining the coaches?

I have woken up early the last three mornings to do my Bible study and it is amazing what a difference it makes in my whole day.  I am, however, a realist and realize that I probably will not be able to keep getting up this early.

I have been really stressed today because of several realizations.
1-I have a lot of bills that are coming due that I almost forgot about.
2-My house is a mess and I have neglected it.
3-There is no food in the cupboards.
4-I will be packing for the RCC Convention at this time yet week (and I’m really nervous about it).

I’m just happy that I now have the grocery shopping finished, most of the laundry done, it is almost time for The Voice and I have all the ingredients I need to make Rice Krispie Treats.  Thank goodness!

My Wonderful Weekend

I had a really good weekend this last weekend.

On Friday there was a game night/potluck at Emmanuel.  Adam and I went and took Bacon Mac N Cheese (Yum!)  We played some fun games.  I left in the middle of game night to go to my sister’s concert at Milligan.  It was a Valentines concert and it was great!  I really enjoyed it.  After the concert I went back to game night, enjoyed a couple more games and then went home.

Saturday started out very boring.  Adam and I were going to go to see a movie, but it started snowing and we didn’t know how bad it would get, so we got some movies from the redbox.  The first one I watched by myself: Hope Springs.  This movie was actually rather depressing and not as funny as I thought it was going to be.  I did not really enjoy it.  Later that night, Adam and I watched Here Comes the Boom, which we really enjoyed.  It was funny and a good story.  But if you are only going to watch one MMA movie, we would recommend Warrior over Here Comes the Boom, but they are both good and very different.

On Sunday after church we came back home and watched Premium Rush.  We both really loved this movie and recommend it.  It was really fun and actually had more of a plot than we were expecting it to.  After the movie Adam went over to a friends house to play World of Warcraft.  While he was gone I watched another Best Picture movie, Tom Jones.  This movie was really fun and lighthearted.  I enjoyed it.  Then we went to Buffalo Wild Wings with Jacob and Lauren.  It was good to go out to eat and spend time with friends.  After dinner Adam stayed to play more with Jacob and I went home to watch Sleepless in Seattle.  I was very tired after this and went to bed early.  It was a good weekend, but I wish I had gotten more rest.  I’m exhausted!

Also, I finished the book I was reading and now I need suggestions for what to read next!

Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter

Last week I bought a box of popcorn (my favorite treat) and there were two codes for free redbox rentals.  So last night I rented Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter because it has been on my “to watch list” forever now.

Almost a year ago I read the book written by Seth Grahame-Smith and I absolutely loved it.  Ever since then I have been waiting to see the movie.  I didn’t get to go see it in theatre and every time I have gone to check it out it isn’t there.  And last night I went to two redbox machines until I found it.

I really enjoyed the movie for it’s action and fight scenes, but I enjoyed the book for its more extensive plot.

It was a fun telling of Abraham Lincoln’s history.  I really thought it was a fun story and really enjoyed it.  Also, the actor they got to play Lincoln is perfect.

So glad I finally got to check this movie off of my list.


And since it has been snowing this weekend, I have watched:  The Dark Knight, lots of Big Bang Theory, The Dark Knight Rises, and Pitch Perfect, again.  And who knows what tomorrow will hold.

Coming soon:  my weekend craft fail!
