Yay! No work tomorrow. Which is nice. I can stay up tonight and then sleep in a bit tomorrow. Of course, sleeping in for me is usually six or seven, when Vader has decided he’s has enough and wants to go out and eat. He will normally enlist the help of at least one of the kitties to help in getting me up. And since Hubby has been home, he’s no help in staving this attack off. He grunts and rolls over ;).
Things have been slow going on the job finding front for Hubby. Not a lot of places are hiring, and the ones that are, he does not have the exp they are looking for, ie., none. There are a couple of over the road jobs for trucking, but I think we’re looking more for him to go to school right now so he can get a better job. In this job market you can’t afford to be picky, but at the same time, you can’t be picky if they wont take you. He’s getting excited though, which is good. Not easy keeping him going on this track. He still has a hard time wrapping his mind around the fact that Financial Aid will pay for his school and have some left over to help with living expenses. He’ll be working a part time job (hopefully) while in school. It’ll be tight, very tight till then, but hopefully we’ll be able to keep things going. Looking at the real reality of giving up a lot of stuff (even some needs) just to keep afloat, but we’ll make it. We’ve been through things like this before.
Oldest has been home all weekend and we’ve been having a good time. She’ll be home for good (she better be anyway!) the middle of next month. I think I covered that in one of my previous entries. I think so. But we’re getting things squared away and about as ready as we can.
Will be making some return calls tomorrow. I’m normally horrible about calling people period, and thankfully most everyone is pretty understandable about that. One reason why I try to keep a blog somewhere, so they all know I’m alive at least. I try to get better, but its just one of those things.
Have to plug my boys over at Rooster Teeth (link to the right, over there ——->). They have been putting out a few short films, and each one has been quite funny. They are live action, so if Machinima has not been your thing… Just go watch them already! Spoiler Alertis my fav so far!
Made Lasagna for dinner tonight and we all watched Pirates 3. My love for Orlando Bloom has been renewed. I asked Hubby a a few times to get him for me, and he said only if he could have KieraKnightly. I told him he could ;). After the movie the kids started playing Monty Python Fluxx and then I joined in. We all love this game and we would play it while we were visiting the Oldest.
Ok, some pics for you folks. Long overdue, I might add.
I need to get a few more off my phone, like one of Tux in the dryer, not helping daddy with the laundry :).
Ok, I need to get this off my chest. Why is it the media loves to think of the target audience for Action/Sci-Fi/Horror movies is all men??? I read this one article on Yahoo!Movies about how Night at the Museum 2 beat out Terminator, and it was mentioned that it was because NATM is targeted for a broader audience and Terminator was for only the guys. WTF!? Have they not learned anything? Throw a couple hot looking guys on the screen with them getting sweaty and movie around really fast and you will have the women lining up to see them. I’m not kidding. Take Valentine’s Day for instance, we could go see Push or we could see whatever the Romantic Comedy was. Guess which one we saw and it was because of me? Yup, Push, and I’m glad for it. Some of the movies I’m looking forward to this year are Terminator, Transformers, Star Trek, Harry Potter, GI Joe, and Wolverine. Yes, I’d like to see NATM, but that is what I consider a family movie, not one I’d go see by myself or with the Hubby. We enjoyed the first one, but it’s more fun to watch with the kids. Out of the ones I mentioned, only Harry Potter could be considered geared more towards females, and the younger set to be exact. But the others would be considered more for the men. And I know a lot of gals who have put those movies on their watch list and see movies like those on a regular basis. So I am offended by what this jerk has said. If you go to conventions for various shows/movie/books or visit their websites, I can guarantee you that the majority of the population is female. Very few sites is it that way. Wake up people. Girls like it hot and dirty too ;).
