Disgusted with the teams remaining in the NFL playoffs, I'm switching over to hockey (Yay! It's back!). First game is on NBC this Saturday and it's the Penguins! Oh yeah, they're playing the Flyers. So happy!!!
On Sunday I went and saw two movies. One, I mentioned here before. "Silver Linings Playbook" is finally playing around here and my daughter and I were able to attend. Pat's reaction when he finished reading Ernest Hemingway's "A Farewell to Arms" was the best reaction I've ever seen! My daughter calls this movie "A Keeper" and I might have to agree with her. I laughed; I teared up. I really enjoyed it.
After that movie, I came home, picked up the husband, went to dinner, then headed to another theater to go see the movie HE wanted to watch: "Django." I have to say, I wasn't exactly interested in seeing this movie. The trailers just didn't do anything for me. But he heard good things about the movie and wanted to go, so I went. Wow, was I pleasantly surprised. Yeah, it's a bit (a lot) on the violent side (and that last scene was way over the top), but the movie was really entertaining. Never would have expected that with Quentin Tarantino!
Had a lovely time at our friend's house on Saturday, making up for the New Year's Eve party we couldn't make (due to the icy weather). Had a great meal and played Phase 10. I really like that game (even if I do lose all the time!). If you've never played it, you're missing a good time.
So, with all that activity over the weekend, my writing kind of suffered. Ah, but that's okay. That's what I have the week to do, right? I'd like to say I'll get my editing/revising done this week, but I won't. Say, that is. I realized I cannot rush through this project (no matter how much I want to finish). So I'm not. It'll be done when it's done (apparently). But man, I am itching to get back to Book 5. Hopefully, that one won't take as long to edit/revise. It'd be nice if I could work on two projects at once, but I'm discovering that just isn't in me (at least, not yet). I envy those who can.
Here's to a good week (in whatever it is you do)!
