I bought a turtleneck for the first time in forever. Very worth it.
Scott came home from a hunting trip on Friday night. I really missed those dogs.
We opened an Amazon package and saw that the box set of Star Wars DVDs had arrived.
Let me explain: Since I'd never seen the movies and I realize what a cultural phenomenon the franchise is, I decided I will watch them all. I looked up a couple of different ways to do this, and the most practical seemed to be buying them for $7-8 each on Amazon in a box set. Scott loves the movies so, even if I hate them, it won't be a complete waste of money. I'm very invested in dissecting the family trees and plot lines. Like, I need context and I have to figure out what's happening.
We watched The Phantom Menace and Attack of the Clones and Revenge of the Sith this weekend because going in order is a MUST. I hope to have them all finished within the month. I'm taking a systematic approach to this.
Saturday plans got all jumbled out of sort, but we ended up at Wal-Mart and then we went out for dinner with my friend and her husband. He and Scott were deployed together, albeit in different locations, and since she and I became friends during the deployment, we decided that they should be friends too. Scott always appreciates me for things like this.
Also, Scott showed me this video because I was feeling bad about myself the other day and he was trying to cheer me up. It worked a little bit.
Sunday was prepping food for the week, as well as catching up on everything that needed to be done. I made this chicken pot pie soup for dinner and we watched the Steelers win.
Also, Primanti Brothers in downtown Pittsburgh decided they wouldn't be selling fish sandwiches while the Dolphins were in town. Methinks that Primanti Brothers and Alexis (aspiring "dolphin" trainer) should get together and take a class on dolphins not being fish.
I took down Christmas on Sunday also and now the house looks sad, but it was a productive Sunday. I got a jump on making my own birthday cake too. It's of the ice cream variety. Recipe to follow.
Hello, 5-day week.
