LOST WEEKEND

It's not like it hasn't happened before, I get 3 days off (4 this time) and I had so much to do, I didn't get anything done. Thursday, I took one daughter to the airport, and spent the day with the other. Friday the other one left and my husband and I had to run errands for much of the day. Saturday, I spent most of the day taking photos at a wedding. I don't know why anyone would trust me with that gig, but they did. So I spent the afternoon taking photos, and the evening cropping, adjusting light etc. Today, we thought we would take in a movie. I like SciFi, so we went to see District 9. I lasted about 45 minutes and we left. That doesn't happen often, and I have sat through some bad movies. But this was one of those hand held filming, with lots of jiggling. So about 30 minutes in I had a headache and was nauseated. Then the graphic vomiting started. Normally, that stuff doesn't get to me, but added to the rest, plus the fact it wasn't a compelling enough story for me, I thought I had enough.
The one bright spot is the trailer for this movie
It was one of 3 movies trailers with apocolypse themes. This one is the only one that gave me a reason for the world ending. I'd go anywhere with this angel...

So, it is 7pm, I'm writing the blog instead of getting dinner..instead of doing laundry... do you think I have a time organization problem?

Oh well, back to doing something useful! Talk to you soon!

My my, that is an atractive angel, heh.
That hand-held camera makes me sick to my stomach as well. There were some tv programs that used that for a couple of episodes and I couldn't stand it.
I just keep going back to stare at the adorable Lily. So sweet.
Hey my word verification is untrash. That's what I'm doing! Just taking a break. Back to the grind.

I had 2 days last week after vacation for myself. I had all these plans and ending up doing other things. I wish I'd made better use of my time but it's what I needed to do!
