We didn't do a whole lot which was kinda nice.  We hunkered down and made sure Zach got back to normal.  

Matt had court side tickets to the Rockets Saturday night with a vendor so Z Man and I chilled on our own.  After he was asleep I watched 2 movies.  The first one was called Two Lovers with Joaquin Phoenix and Gwyneth Paltrow.  It was on demand and said you could rent it before it was in theaters so I got interested.  After watching it I could see why they were trying this approach cause it is not going to do well at the box office.  It was B.O.R.I.N.G.  Ah well.  Next I watched In the Valley of Elah with Tommy Lee Jones (who I love) and Charlize Theron (who is also pretty darn good.).  It was a decent flick although it ended kind of abruptly with no real conclusion but all in all I was interested the whole time.  While on the movie thought...we also recently watched the 2nd Chronicles of Narnia (prince Caspian).  I loved the 1st one but the 2nd was blah to me.  Kinda reminded me of the 2nd Lord of the Rings movie.  Just couldn't stand up to the 1st and was also trying to pack a lot of info into it.  We also watched The Bucket List with Morgan Freeman and Jack Nicholson and that was pretty good.  I would recommend that one if you are in the mood for a life/drama kinda story.  Have you watched any good movies lately?  And don't tell me about anything in the theaters cause there is no way I will be able to go see a movie in the theater again till probably NEXT Christmas ;-)

We did get to go visit little Samantha though which was really nice.  Although as soon as we walked in my monster knocked over one of Sue and Randy's floral arrangements and broke the handle off the vase.  nice.  Luckily they said it was just from Garden Ridge or something so not a priceless heirloom or anything.  Sue...I owe you a new vase!  Sam is gorgeous and sweet and slept like a baby in my arms for like an hour.  I loved every minute of it.  Zach did pretty good with seeing me with a wee one too.  I did not get a single picture though.  DRATS!  I was too busy making sure my kid didn't break anything else in their nicely decorated house!!  I will be back for pics another time!  :)

Talked to mom a lot too and Grammy seems to be hanging in there.  They think she will probably be there for the week but she is stable and seems to be doing okay.  I am just praying she makes a full recovery! 

Today we are going to visit the Bloch babies once Z man is up from his nap!  Perhaps I will remember to take the camera out this time!!


  1. Sounds like a nice weekend! We watched Eagle Eye last week, it was great. Also Traitor, which was a bit gritty for my taste, but still good.

    Right now I am watching My Best Friend's Girl. Entertaining, but raunchy. :) We also have The Duchess to watch later, I love those period movies!

  2. Ok, I am so behind the times, I have never heard of those movies! guess I need to get netflix, huh? ;-)
