Sunday was such a relaxing day: I slept in (awesome!) and then the hubby and I went to breakfast and went grocery shopping. I hate grocery shopping -- pretty much I hate everything about it -- but all we had in the fridge was that expired milk, so I guess we had to go. It's much better when the two of us go together; for example, when we shopped yesterday, my husband stood in line at the deli while I did all the other shopping. If I had to stand in the deli for that long? I would have strangled someone.
After completing our one chore for the day, we spent the rest of the day chillin.
I finished my book "Here if You Need Me" by Kate Braestrup. A memoir. Sort of. I mean, "memoir" conjures up troubled tales from a person's childhood, but it wasn't like that at all, so it could probably be more accurately genre-ized as a "personal narrative." Anyway, it was very good and I'd recommend it.
Then, we watched several movies (it makes the hubby crazy for us to have Netflix movies that are sitting around unwatched -- so he was very pleased that we were able to watch not just one, but TWO movies yesterday). First, we watched "Blood Diamond" with Leonardo DiCaprio, who I used to think was just a lot of hype, but lately, I am beginning to respect his acting -- I mean "The Departed"? awesome. Very good. Again, I recommend it. Although, be forewarned: you'll probably feel uber-guilty for owning any diamonds; unless you specifically asked your jeweler whether or not they were conflict-free, it's very likely that any diamond on your hand cost someone in Africa their hand.
Lastly, we watched "Black Snake Moan" which was okay. It was good, in a weird way, but I thought the ending was too tidy given the conflicts in the film. It's not that I have anything against a happy ending -- with certain kinds of movies that's expected -- but this just felt like the sort of movie that solved some complexities with too much ease.
So, that was my Sunday -- went by too quickly and now I have to get back to the grind. I think this afternoon, after class, I'm gonna test out the campus gym; I've never used it before and I don't know why not. So, I figure: why not start today?
