The boys and I had a great Saturday. We drove (I know...what was I thinking about promising the boys this day? dumb) to Davenport, IA. Brian couldn't come b/c he's on call this weekend, so that was a bummer. We, along w/ the boys babysitter went to Red Robin for lunch, and after that we hit the movies. Ryne and I saw the Hunger Games at IMax. I loved the books so much, that I even pre-bought the tix yesterday online. That was a first. Anyway, I enjoyed the movie, but it doesn't hold too much of a candle to the book. It follows it pretty well, but the book is just so much more descriptive (that's an obvious statement right...) Without reading the book first, there are some things I'm sure I wouldn't have realized the importance of. I think many movie goers will miss out on some things. But anyway, I'm still glad we saw it. Cal and the sitter went to The Lorax in 3D. They both really enjoyed it. Their sitter is 16 yo and a super bright kid. Any parent would be totally proud to have a kid like that. We're really lucky to have her.
Today has also been filled with eating shit and that dreaded fucking heroin...soda. I feel sick. I'm such a dipshit. I really need to turn this around. Why do I eat, drink like this, when it makes me feel like this? You'd think that even I would be smarter than that.
Well, the Final 4 is on in the background. I really need to check out my bracket. I've no idea where I stand. I haven't checked it once. That's a first. Usually I've got that baby full of crossed out teams and highlighted teams. Every time I thought of it at work, though, it just wasn't the right time. I stay pretty dang busy. And we really don't take a lunch, except for a quick eat at our desks. I've really got to find a way to make time for the important things during the work hours, like texting with girlfriends, and playing Words with Friends, lol.
I hope you guys are having a great weekend. I'm so sorry to once again fail you on the most basic of levels (my diet).
P.S. I just let Junior out to go potty (for the millionth time today), and I love all the birds and critters that are out. The birds out here sing beautifully. Now, their no "Mockingjays" but I love it none the less.
