Hello Friday

I love it when the weekend is finally here!  Not that I have any exciting plans, but that is besides the point.  Weekends=awesome.  Fact.

This has been a great week but the next two weeks are shaping up to be really busy.  I will be traveling to many, many communities-both near and far.  My work..I LOVE.  Traveling for work on muddy roads…es no bueno.  (I bet my husband would be so proud of me for utilizing a bit of my limited Spanish.  Go me.) 

Last night I watched Precious and Monsters vs Aliens with my husband.  (Yes, we watched them in that order.)  Precious was a good movie as I knew it would be but I found it made me melancholy and stirred up old worries I have regarding the safety of my children.  I was surprised when after the movie my husband said the same thing, that he liked it but it made him scared somebody would someday hurt or abuse our children.  I’m not sure if it is just normal worry or something that came from our own life experiences.  (As an aside I barely recognized Mariah Carey in her role as a social worker.) 

Monsters vs Aliens was as expected; a cute, funny, feel good cartoon.  I loved that the girl got to be the hero that saved the world.  GO SUSAN!  I love cartoons which is fortunate since I get stuck watching them a lot.  *shakes fist* I’m looking at you Dora and Diego…I’ll get you, and your little Baby Jaguar too.

I ordered a pair of earrings from a friend on twitter…they are made of awesome and I can’t wait until they come in the mail.
