Big Weekend Plans

Okay, not really... I don't have big plans, but I do have some things I would like to accomplish. I'm too tired to have BIG plans. I taught class from 5:30 until 9:40 last night. I didn't get home until 10:00 and had to be right back there at 8:00 a.m. this morning! I am starting to think this semester's class schedule is for the birds! Anyway, I'm still getting used to it, so I'm too tired to do much this weekend.

Movies: I have a list of a zillion movies I want to see, but right now, I'm trying to focus on seeing as many Oscar nominated movies as I can before the Oscars actually happen on Feb. 22nd. Out of the 5 nominated films, I've only seen one... The Curious Case of Benjamin Button. So as you can see, I'm not very close to my goal! I think I'm going to see The Reader tomorrow. I read the book way back in law school and don't remember many details (which is perfect for viewing the movie because they always screw them up anyway when they are based on a book!). I think I'm going to brave the crappy movie theatre here in McK because they are super cheap and they are actually showing The Reader. Otherwise, I have to drive to Plano and pay about 3 times as much to see it. What is dodging a little gang activity compared to saving gas, money and drive time, right?

Chores: Of course I have my usual weekly piles of laundry that need to be tended to. I also hope to do some organizing of my entry closet. I bought a hanging shelf that I'm hoping to organize winter accessories, rain accessories, etc. on so that they are all right there with my coats and jackets. Sounds exciting doesn't it! (Actually I am kind of excited about getting organized)

Watch shows on my DVR: I'm a little behind for the week, but not as bad as it would have been if there would have been a full schedule of new Thursday night shows this week.

Walk: I think that all the cards may align this weekend to take some walks. My back is probably feeling good enough to walk, Lola is definitely feeling well enough, and I think the weather may be nice enough. Yeah!

You will notice that while most American's will devote time this weekend to the Super Bowl, I have not included that in my plans. I will not even watch for the commercials. I may tune in to the half time show to see Bruce Springsteen, but that is going to be the extent of my watching.
