February 25, 2013 Monday Afternoon

I guess you could say we had an Oscar movie watching weekend.

Spent Friday night watching Criminal Minds, Law And Order, NCIS LA and then went to bed for some lovin.

Saturday morning we were up at 7 AM.  Fed the dogs and gave Vito his shot.  Spent the early morning reading the newspapers and deciding what we would do for the weekend.  Since we had already seen Les Miserables (which I love and have watched twice), The Impossible (which should have been a bigger movie and seen by more people.  Totally under rated movie)  and Argo (which we did enjoy and glad it won) prior to this weekend.  I figured since the Oscars were on Sunday, and we usually never know what the movies are about or seen them, we would watch them all this weekend before the Oscar show Sunday night. 
Spent the rest of Saturday watching Zero Dark Thirty (very good movie), DJango Unchained (had a hard time feeling good about enjoying this movie. Don't get me wrong, it was a great movie, but hearing the n word so often felt wrong.  Great story and acting), Silver Linings Playbook (very good movie) and Lincoln (very good and learned about history), before going to bed around 11 PM. 

Sunday morning we were up by 7 AM.  Fed the dogs and gave Vito his shot.  Read most of the Sunday newspaper and then showered and went to picked up Tony's mom and took her out for breakfast.  Stopped off at Menard's to return the stapler I bought earlier in the week.  Ended up spending about the same as the refund on other items around the store.  Dropped Tony's mom off at her home and then on the way home stopped and bought gas and lottery tickets for the week.  Got home and before we continued our movie marathon I thought I would go for a long walk along the river trails.  Couldn' talk Tony into going with me, which is fine, I like my walks along the river enough to go alone.  Came home and spent the rest of the afternoon watching The Sessions (very good and give credit to Helen Hunt for feeling so comfortable with her body to appear nude in the movie) and Life Of Pi (love this movie, did I get the ending right?  Were the animals the mother and crew that survived and eventually killed each other?).  Ordered some Jimmy John subs for supper and spent the night watching the Oscars.  Was happy enough with the results.  Went to bed after the Oscars, Tony was already snoring away sleeping.

This morning I was up at 7 AM.  Fed the dogs and gave Vito his shot.  Read a little of the morning newspaper and then went back to bed for a couple hours.  Didn't feel good.  Felt edgy and tired.  Was good to go back to bed and start the day over when I got up a little after 10 AM.  Got some things done around the house, showered, ate some lunch and then went for a nice walk along the river trails.  Brought my camera to take some pictures.  Here are a few pictures from the trails and the big ice chunks along the river banks.

Just plan on making a hamburger helper lasagna for supper tonight with a salad.  Will most likely spend the night watching How I Met Your Mother, Rules Of Engagement, The Following, and Deception, before going to bed tonight.
