I'm always a little, okay a lot, behind in the movie world. This past weekend, the husband and I decided to be wild and crazy and stay up past 10:00 on Saturday night to watch a movie. I had heard lots of folks talking about The Hunger Games and most recently, Catching Fire, but I really wasn't familiar with it - I only knew that people loved it.
In the interest of not being able to agree on anything else, we decided to just pick something and go with it. I was a little confused in the beginning but picked up on it fairly quickly. It was surely disturbing, but you couldn't help but be completely enthralled. We watched it all the way through and both really liked it. Both of us also agreed that we couldn't get it out of our heads for a couple of days following.
As a matter of fact, I was so intrigued that I am now reading book one of the three book series. So far, it has clarified so much of what I was unsure of when watching the movie. I'm having a hard time putting it down and am certain I'll have to watch the movie again to do it proper justice.
Remember when I mentioned I was getting old ever since turning thirty? Well, this week I started physical therapy. Somewhere along the way I've developed tendinitis in the rotator cuff of my right shoulder. When the pain is at its worst, I can barely take my shirt off or put deodorant on. At its best, I barely notice it. The thing is, it flares up and then calms, flares up, then calms. Hopefully, with my strengthening and stretching exercises, I won't have to deal with that up and down cycle for much longer. I've also had to make a point to limit my lifting of our Little Boy. I have to face the fact that he's not exactly little anymore.
Does anyone else watch NCIS? It is my absolute favorite show. I'm just curious if anyone else likes Bishop as much as I do? I was so bummed when Ziva left the show. I thought there was no way they could replace her, the show would be doomed. But to my surprise, I think they managed to successfully infiltrate the newbie. I miss Ziva's character, but Bishop's character is so different from Ziva's that it's not like she replaced her, she's just new. Plus, she's nerdy. And what nerd isn't going to root for other nerds? :)
I learned this week that there really is a difference in shampoos. I had been using Dove's volume boosting shampoo and loved it. However, when I went to pick up another bottle, the store didn't have it. So instead, in the interest of protecting the color that I have put on every eight weeks, I went with the color care. It was only about three days after use that I had to go back to the store. The color care shampoo was a creamy white and visibly weighed my hair down. I lost all body. I ended up going back to the store and picking out the Pantene volume shampoo. Seriously, one wash later, my body was back. Both the Dove and Pantene shampoos are a clear shampoo and neither weighed my hair down like the other did.
Lesson of the week - the flu mist does not cover all strains of the flu, in particular, Flu A. Little Boy and I had to make a trip to the doctor. He had this chronic cough for a couple of days, no other signs like fever or congestion, but the cough was showing no signs of going away. I wasn't too concerned until one night he coughed so hard that he threw up in bed. :( I thought we better make sure it wasn't turning into something, and low and behold, he tested positive for Flu A. Even more fun is the price of Tamiflu. But, it will be totally worth it. Nobody likes to see their baby down for the count, and hopefully we've caught it early enough that he'll be spared of the worst.
Hope your weeks have been lovely and your weekends are fantastic and restful.
Happy Friday Lovelies!
