Nerd alert!

Saturday night/ Sunday morning: sitting around playing original PlayStation games we downloaded on the PS3. Namely, Final Fantasy Tactics, the only FF game I ever really got sucked into playing. It's pretty fun, I won't lie. Actually right now I'm not even playing, I'm just tucked into my new quilt and I'm working on a crochet project for an order. I'm enjoying the familiar soundtrack and watching E teach Henry the ropes. I have no desire to go anywhere today at all.

There's a box sitting in my office full of papers to grade--that will have to come sometime later. I spent the better part of yesterday on projects in the house and on ignoring the stuff from work I really needed to get done. I had such a packed week where every spare minute I was taking care of the details of some work project; I decided a full day "off" (read: working house stuff rather than work stuff) was a better use of my time. I'm glad I did--I feel a little bit more able to tackle things now that I've had some time to take a breath. Plus my house is clean enough for E's mom to come tomorrow: a rarity.

I also finally got around to watching some of the movies I missed during the Christmas season. Yesterday I finally saw The Blind Side and It's Complicated. Loved them both. This morning I started watching Up in the Air, but once E got up I shut it off. I will try to finish it later this afternoon. I like that one so far too.

This coming Friday is monumental--finally we'll bridge the chasm between school loans and E's employment. I am anxious knowing that payday is so close. I had dreams last night about browsing the aisles at Costco, and actually being able to buy red meat. I'm so excited I can barely contain myself.


  1. Sounds like a nice relaxing Sunday. Friday certainly will be monumental - hopefully it will take some stress away too! Enjoy what's left of the weekend!

  2. The Husband and I are big movie watchers. I haven't seen It's Complicated, but The Blind Side and Up In The Air are two very excellent movies, if I do say so myself:) Yay for lazy days!

  3. Oh I am jealous of your weekend- seems relaxing! I loved both of those movies you watched. I haven't seen 'Up in the Air' yet- what do you think? Is it worth renting?

  4. Final Fantasy Tactics, eh?

    GOOD TO KNOW. GOOD TO KNOW, P.DAWG. I bought Joe a PS3 for his birthday in December and was DEVASTATED to find out I couldn't play Mario 3 on it.

    Joe: "That's Nintendo, love."
    Me: "WHAT?"
    Joe: "You can only play Mario on Nintendo."
    Me: "You've got to be fucking kidding me? I just bought you a $300 video game thing that DOESN'T play Mario? What about Mario 1?"

  5. Brunch at Saks: Up in the Air is wonderful. The best movie I've seen in a LONG time. Clooney is a dreamboat.
