My weekend kicked your weekend's butt!

Okay, the title might be a bit enthusiastic, but I had a wonderful weekend. Hubby and I went out for dinner Friday night, then caught Pan's Labyrinth. What a wonderful movie! I haven't been to movies in ages, don't follow the Oscar nominations etc., and really knew nothing about this movie before deciding on it (I'm a little ashamed to say). The fantasy portions of the movie are breathtaking. The real life is graphic and violent and gory, making such a poignant contrast to the fantasy Ofelia wants to escape to. The one suggestion I can make is that due to the fact that it is subtitled, do not see it on the biggest screen in town. Having to scan down to the words and back up 20 feet to the movie was a bit much. A smaller screen or sitting further back would have been better.

Saturday I had breakfast with my sister and a friend, then off to the spa for pedicures all around. Hubby surprised me by arranging with my sis to pay for my tootsie pampering too! After we dropped Patti off, Stella and I took in the Sens game, (they won!) Stella's pretty funny, she's calculated how many games she'll miss based on when they'll induce. She's hoping to be able to make the playoffs in April *g*. Saturday night we relaxed at home.

I finished reading Marley & Me Saturday night, and bawled my eyes out. What an amazing book. I spent the first day of reading actually laughing out loud at the antics of this dog, and last night blubbering like a baby. I'm amazed I didn't wake hubby.

Sunday I was awake early enough to do a fairly decent job of beating my house into shape to have peeps over for a crop in the afternoon. I even had time to bake cookies! It was a small group, so I thought I would be able to get some cropping done, but they kept me hopping! I have this feeling that my work week isn't going to be nearly as good.
