It’s nearly noon and I have been to the gym! Yes, I’m very excited about that, because I should have done that yesterday. Today was supposed to be my rest day. I don’t know what people mean when they say ‘I’ve just been to the gym for an hour.’ Were they active for a whole hour, or does that time include everything around it? I was in the gym for an hour, but with getting ready, driving up and down, eating something healthy beforehand and a protein-rich meal afterward, it’s taken me all morning. And I even haven’t had my shower yet. It doesn’t help when you get out of bed at 8:45 am of course. Yes, I know, on Monday I said I planned to get up earlier. This, of course, doesn’t work if you still go to sleep past midnight. I still need to work on that one 🙂 .
My fun things for the weekend are mixed. We’re going to see Alien: Covenant at some point. We just watched Prometheus again, so we’re all ready and geared up for the new Alien installment. Not sure if you call it a prequel to the sequel or a sequel to the prequel.
I’m taking my daughter and her friend to Lochter, the local activities center, to celebrate her birthday. They’re going to do some rifle shooting, segway, and go-karts. Fingers crossed it won’t be raining. My son also has his birthday celebration (they’re twins), but he’s keeping it in-house, inviting a couple of friends for a sleepover, like last year. This means I will have another sleepless night, trying to listen if the boys are not breaking or burning down the house.
In the past week, we’ve been watching the first two Mad Max movies, to see if our son could watch them. I think he’s old enough to do so, but I think he won’t enjoy them. Maybe the second one, certainly not the first one. The Road Warrior has great stunts at the final scene. I think they wouldn’t be approved today, but in those days they weren’t such pussies 😀 . We haven’t seen Beyond Thunderdome yet. I’m looking forward to seeing Tina Turner on screen. We’ve watched the Minions movie again, still funny.
I invited my kids to watch Sausage Party. I can wholeheartedly suggest you don’t watch this one with your teenaged kids. Even though it’s a cartoon, this is by no standard a kids’ movie! The trailer is cute and exciting, but within five minutes I lost count of the times the f-word was mentioned and that is not the only word they use. Not to mention the extremely suggestive movements and insinuations. Be aware of this one!
I’ve actually also done some writing. I finished chapter 7 and 8. Maybe, just maybe, I have even found myself an editor. She’s a friend of a friend who lives in Cairo. The world is such a small place nowadays. She’s reading my book now and I can’t wait for her verdict. Maybe she’ll say it’s such trash she never wants to hear from me again. I’m keeping my fingers crossed 😀 .
So, meme time! Here’s what I’ve been laughing about this week:
Have a Happy Weekend!
