Good for you, Harriet
! And if that one person is upset, well, again, good for you! Maybe some day people will learn to do their jobs correctly.Nancy
, I meant to tell you, I love your new idea with rocks.
Kudos to you, Twins
, for braving the elements to take Muffin out.
We went out last night and Oh. My. Goodnesss. How cold... "only" in the 20s (some of you are LOL at my low tolerance for these temps) but the wind was pretty high, so it was ROUGH. We saw a movie, The Commuter
. Somewhat predictable, but still, some surprises in how it all panned out. Even dh said, "Well, no, I didn't expect that..." So, it was better than he expected.
We also saw The Post
on Thursday night and it was VERY good! It's the true story about the Washington Post publishing the Pentagon papers about Vietnam, with Meryl Streep and Tom Hanks. I loved it! Even though my little stint in newspaper publishing (
VERY small school paper) does not not even COMPARE to this sort of thing in ANY way -- still, I love to watch these movies about freedom of the press, etc. It's also a "strong woman" movie, b/c Katherine Graham was the owner of the Post, after the deaths of her father and husband (her father had made her HUSBAND the head of the paper at his death, NOT her) and she was obviously one of the first women to take on such a powerful position, and had some huge decisions to make, sometimes against the advice of her all-male board members.
BUT... I guess I am paying the piper today. I just cannot seem to DO Saturdays, no matter how much I try...
If I am home for a rare Friday, I am NOT going to be "s2s first thing," no matter what.
Today my excuse is a TERRIBLE sore throat. DH went to get breakfast, and I barely knew when he left and when he returned. I got up and ate and went back to bed. Now I'm up b/c I'm going to have to take a shower and go get dgs to spend the night with us. He will be heartbroken if he doesn't get to come over. And it will be a big help to ddil, not to have to get both kids dressed for church in the morning on her own. DS is going to be gone all day tomorrow.
We were hoping to go to Nashville today -- we have friends playing at a family-friendly venue tonight and we very seldom get to see them -- but with the weather like it is, and both of us under-the-weather, even dh decided we better not try it. DGS would have had fun at that, but he will likely have more fun just playing here with his toys. (Our roads are FINE, -- we never got more than just some very dry flurries that just blew away as soon as they hit -- but we've heard that is not the case further north.)
WTG, to Cathy's
dh! Losing enough weight to get BP meds cut in half! That's great!!!
And WTG, Cathy
, on that wonderful meal with homemade bread. Mmmmm.... LadyM
, sounds like you've got some fun ahead!
Waving (enviously) at Kathryn
