I don't have to work tomorrow because I already fulfilled my hours for the pay period. Tonight Oscar and I are celebrating by eating Fun Dip and watching Criminal Minds. Andy, on the other hand, seems very put out that I'm still awake and trying to spend time with him. Typical mom--total buzzkill.
Today work was basically baller. We did a welcome lunch for our new clinic and brought them pizza. I thought we were just bringing it to their office as a "thanks and welcome to the hospital" thing, but they wanted us to stay and eat! Free drinks, pizza and chocolate truffles?! Huzzah! Granted it was pizza from Pizza Ranch, which...wasn't great. I'm always surprised when people order pizza delivery from a buffet place. It always feels like they're settling. Regardless--it was nice to get pizza and a free coke. I was basically getting paid to go out on what, in my world, is a pretty fancy date. Although, thinking about it like that...eeks. That's a slippery slope to being a prostitute. Or if you're a glass-half-full kinda guy, just an escort.
So tomorrow my plans are to run, go to Herbergers, start (and possibly finish) season one of Downton Abbey. Also, I plan on having several naps with Oscar. It's going to be a phenomenal day. I'm really wishing we had a Hobby Lobby in town because I think I could be very inspired to get some real crafting done tomorrow. I guess I could stop by the Dakota Sew and So for the first time, but I have a feeling it looks like 1993 in there and everything is covered by tacky floral prints.
The swelling in my knees has gone down significantly, but the bruising looks like I've been making prune juice with my knees. I tried to take a picture with the iPad to show you, but the camera quality sucks, so it wasn't worth it. Anyways, my knees have been aching all day and I'm wishing I had moved my knee pads up here. Just as long as my kneehole doesn't open up, I should be fine. The last thing I need is stitches.
So I meant to go over this the other day; last weekend Jacob and I watched Super 8. I'm still unsure about it. I thought it had a great feel, just like Dana said, it's similar to the Sandlot or The Goonies (shame on you for not watching those Dana). Some parts made me laugh and I thought the kids were really great but...I don't know. I wasn't crazy about the ending. I don't want to give anything away, but I thought the reason for the strange things happening around town was just kind of lame. I expect more from you, J.J. Abrams. It was worth watching, but I wouldn't see it again. 3 out of 5 stars on Netflix.
