1. Craig and the kids have been on an electronic/building kick for the past couple months. Last week it was Maker Faire, where the kids ended up buying a ton of stuff to build. Craig decided the cheapest way for them to get parts to play with was to hit garage sales, so we were up this morning at 7am to hit the road. I must admit, I love garage sales. You never know what you're going to find. Alicia got a couple books, Alex got some Bakugan for a quarter apiece, and Craig picked up two remote control cars for a buck. We also got some garden trellises for a song that still had the tags on them, but I got something that put a huge smile on my face.
I LOVE these kinds of bracelets. I have two that I bought years ago from an artisan at Polaris, and I'm always on the lookout for more. I got this from an Indian family who had a ton of beautiful Indian jewelry and saris for sale. There was another but the ring didn't fit well, so I only opted for this one. Clearly, I need to do my jewelry shopping in India.
2. I came home to finish my last LAS entry. It had to be in by 3 and I'd been struggling with it all week. Every bunny I had died before I hit 100 words. I ended up getting it finished with an hour to spare, lol. Considering how much trouble I had with it, I'm rather pleased with the result.
3. That means, voting has started for this final round of LAS. There are only two entries, so it won't take much time at all. Please head over and take a look.
4. Our initial plans for this evening were to go to the drive-in with the kids. Pirates was playing on a double with Thor. However, the weather wasn't being nice and forecasts had it mid 40s and possibly raining tonight, so we opted to go out to dinner and the indoor theater instead. My opinion on the movie? Meh. I don't know what was missing for me, but it just seemed to lack its sparkle. However, I loved Philip, the missionary. Maybe I was in a romantic mood, but the whole thing with him and the mermaid got to me more than anything else. That being said, what the hell happened to him in the end? Did she kill him? Was that what she meant by saving him, since death would return him to God? If so, I'm a little disappointed. I wanted to see them together.
And now, I'm catching up on what I missed today before I head back downstairs to watch Battlestar Galactica with Craig. We've just finished the third season, and I'm glad we didn't watch it when it aired. All these two-parters and cliffhanger endings would've killed me.
