The weekend was busy, my brother was in town for his early birthday, so we spent most of Saturday hanging out with him. On Saturday morning, hubby and I drove around running errands. First stop was the bank. A few weeks ago, I rolled the spare change lying around in our house and Saturday was the day of the deposit. All $78 of it. You should have seen the pissy look the girl behind the counter gave us! If looks could kill! I wonder what she’ll say when I bring more change in! LOL. But I can’t very well leave all this money sitting around the house unused! (All those pennies, nickels and dimes add up and if searching behind couch cusions helps me buy a house then so be it!) After the bank, we went to a children’s store to buy some presents for my co-worker who is having her first baby in April. Her supervisor is having a surprise baby shower for her this week, so I had to pick something out to bring. I think both my and hubby’s jaw instantly clenched when we walked into that place: Kids running around, pushy moms aggressively scouring the racks, babies wailing-It was pretty uncomfortable for a childfree couple like us! I mean, I’ve been around kids before and have some experience teaching and in fact, I worked one summer in a children’s consignment shop, but this place was overwhelming! Just sheer insanity! Anyways, I wasn’t sure what to buy, so I bought her a cute little giraffe stuffed animal and a hat to keep the sun off the baby’s face. Seems appropriate for a spring baby. Saturday afternoon we went to my parents for dinner and then went out with my brother and his friends to see “Shutter Island“. It was a decent flick, lots of twists and turns and some people described it as “creepy” or “disturbing”. The only thing about this movie that I found remotely disturbing was the tie that Leonardo di Caprio wore during the first half of the movie. Egad, it was a horrible!:
It was the colour of barf and I seriously had nightmares about it that same night! LOL. I was never a fan of Leo-I remember all the girls used to love him, but to me he always looked like a weird man-child, immature and naive. I’ve never been big on actors that look like their barely old enough to shave. But he was great in this flick, very believable in his role as a man who is still grieving the loss of his wife and children.
On Sunday, we went to a pool. After a winter of lethargy, I recently made a promise to myself and hubby that we would start working out together and eating healthier food. Sunday was the first day of that promise and we will be going every week to swim laps. The pool was packed, which made it difficult to swim those laps, but hopefully it will be less crowded next time. Have you made a similar recent pact for fitness? Have you had any success?
Well thats it for now, its been pretty hectic for me with other things going on, but I’ll post another update soon!:)
