It’s only 11:34 a.m. and I already feel the day escaping me. I’ve been up since 8:20 a.m., and the only things I’ve managed to do are empty & load the dishwasher, feed CootieGirl and get her down for a nap, have a bowl of cereal, rejoin Weight Watchers Online, take my first round of meds, fill four bottles for future CootieGirl feedings, make a call and send an email about adding CootieGirl to my health insurance, and catch 10 minutes of The People’s Court. Seems like a lot, but it really should have all been done within an hour, not three.
I have to go take a shower before CootieGirl wakes up for her 12:30 p.m. feeding. It’s cloudy and cool outside, but I may go ahead and bundle up CootieGirl in the stroller and go for a walk around the block before it begins raining this afternoon. Then when the rain begins and I’m trapped inside I can begin working on the latest batch of Thank You notes we have to send out for the numerous gifts we’ve received for CootieGirl. People’s generosity knows no bounds!
Yesterday was a nice Mom’s Day for me. I got to see “X-Men 2”, which was just as good as the original – in some ways better. I can’t wait for “X-Men 3” to be made. They should have filmed it at the same time as “X-Men 2”, like they did with “LOTR” and “The Matrix”. *sigh* And you remember how I worship James Marsters’ pretty little hip bone? Well, I realized yesterday that I also worship Hugh Jackman’s left eyebrow. It’s sexy as all get out.
And speaking of crappy movies (“The Matrix”, that is), Denis and I have had a bad run recently with our Netflix movie choices. “Igby Goes Down” sucked. And I rented Ingmar Bergman’s “The Seventh Seal”, which is supposed to be a classic. We turned it off after 10 minutes. Pure garbage. You know it’s bad when you watch “Blue Crush” and think, Hey, that was pretty good.
