Yesterday was a busy day. I took the day off not only for my doctor appointment but because it was the day after my birthday. After my appointment late in the morning, my mom (who is visiting) and I drove over to JC Penney to pick up some new towels for Denis’ bathroom (which I’m redecorating because it’s U-G-L-Y). It was a busy however, when they didn’t have the types of towels I wanted. We came home and chilled over some lunch and Days of Our Lives, then I left to meet Denis for an afternoon movie. Mom stayed home for some CootieGirl quality time.
Denis and I saw “Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban”, which I enjoyed. It seemed like a glossed-over version of the book, which was pretty intense and detailed, but I felt it was still pretty faithful to the book and was never boring. PoA is my favorite of the five HP books, so I was concerned I would be disappointed, but I wasn’t. Those kids sure are growing up – and they better get a move on with the fourth movie before they outgrow the roles!
Then last night after some dinner, which Denis was out taking care of work stuff, Mom and I settled in to watch “Lorna Doone”. I was tired, but managed to stay awake and really enjoyed it. It’s part of the whole A&E movie series that Denis bought for me from Costco a few months back. The set of DVDs came with 5-6 miniseries made by A&E, and this one was worthy of being alongside “Pride & Prejudice” (mmmm…Colin Firth).
This morning I’m back at work, doing my thing. Surprisingly, I’m not swamped – I thought I’d come in to a desk covered in requests, but it’s been surprisingly light, and one of my bosses is leaving at 12:30 p.m. for the rest of the day. Nice….
