~ Les Miserables was amazing! It wasn’t perfect (Russell Crowe, I’m looking at you), but it was as good as I had hoped. The rest of the casting was perfect, the acting was amazing, and I bawled my eyes out, as I expected to.
~ New Year’s Eve we went to a party at church and played board games, pool, air hockey, foosball, etc. The whole family had fun.
~ New Year’s Day was low-key, and then in the evening some friends came over to play Wii Bowling and Frisbee Golf.
~ On Thursday, Dad and I watched The Raven, which was deliciously creepy. I love John Cusack.
~ Friday, we spent the afternoon at Michelle’s, and then played cards in the evening.
~ Tonight, (I’m writing this Saturday evening), Kevin has friends coming over to play on the Wii again. I may play, too, or I may sit and read, depending on my mood.
Tomorrow will be our last day of vacation. Sigh. I’m not ready to get back into the routine of things, but I know the holidays can’t last forever. I’m looking forward to what 2013 has in store for us. I admit that 2012 is one year I’m happy to see the back end of, but things are looking up. Kevin has a very strong job prospect, so prayers would be appreciated! Hopefully, by next Sunday, I’ll have some very good news.
The Seahwaks are playing in the playoffs tomorrow, so after church, I will be cheering them on. I may do some reading, too, from My Antonia by Willa Cather (our “I’ve Always Meant to Read This Book!” Challenge pick for January); The Map of the Sky by Felix J. Palma; Rilla of Ingleside by L.M. Montgomery; and The Aviator’s Wife by Melanie Benjamin. My current audiobook is Dirty Blonde by Lisa Scottoline.
Are you watching football today? Reading anything good?
