What I learned, did, saw or thought about the weekend:
*Merlin is back on for another season... I am kinda obsessed with anything involving King Arthur. Anyone remember the mini-series on TV that was called Merlin as well? Martin Short was in it... I loved it. First Knight with Richard Gere? Still watch it everytime its on... I do love this series though.
*Watched Burlesque ... it was corny... but I love a movie that has singing & dancing. And man, oh man! Christina Aguilera has changed over the past few years, hasnt she? She looks like a baby in that movie.
*One of the youth kiddos asked me, "Who is Billy Graham?" ... I was shocked... wonder who will be this next's generation's Billy Graham? Anyone?
*Since giving up Diet Coke, I'm now addicted to tea. I went a few weeks ago to Sam's Club & got a couple of these pitchers. I have to have 2 pitchers at all time in the fridge. This weekend, I think I made tea about 8 times.... trading one addiction for another one.
*I'm thinking this steroid is just gonna come & go... I was feeling better last week. Friday, I bombed out again. My feet were horrible & I felt achy & weak all over again on Saturday. Not to the extreme I was before - but it was bad. Just hoping these ups & downs just get further & further apart & the downs arent as DOWN... this is getting old.
*Because of the way I felt Saturday... I didnt even get out of my PJ's except only to take a bath...
*This little man was my snuggle buddy all weekend too... he's probably the only one who's happy when I'm not feeling good, because that means laying on a couch & holding him all... day.... long.
*I attempted 2 new dishes. Black Bean Soup in my crockpot ... which was a SUCCESS!! And cornbread... which was an utter failure. It tasted weird. Like there was too much flour? Or baking powder? Now I'm on a mission to make good cornbread.
*Sunday, we watched Soul Surfer.. EXCELLENT movie! I told Ricky that if one of the kids in my youth group have a movie made of their life, I want Carrie Underwood to portray me as their youth leader as well. Just dye her hair red. Or just go with Emma Stone since she's already a red head.
*I got to get caught up on Parks & Recreation on my DVR. Did anyone else see the one where they had to walk across the ice to get to the stage? I literally laughed so hard, I had tears rolling down my cheeks. There are so many good comedies on now. Laughter IS the best medicine!
*Yes, I realize my whole weekend revolved around TV, movies & my DVR... I was sick & that was the only energy I could exhert... my eyes focusing on the boob-tube.
*I also just realized I'm probably going to get weird traffic to my blog because I now have the word "boob-tube" here.
Here's to a new week... hope your weekends were entertaining...
