Good evening...little late today. I wanted to wait until I got the latest pictures of the puppy. Of course. He is 6 weeks old now, and we will pick him up in two weeks. It is like we are anticipating a baby. We are crazy. Last weekend we actually got to FaceTime with Brody and his nanny. We have the best breeder ever. He is definitely on the heavier side of a six week PON. The cats are just going to LOOOOOVE him.
So the week started out good, or normal at least. I was doing my thing, running here and there, going to the new trainer. Then on Wednesday I casually picked up a small weight and completely threw my back out. Man, it sucks being old. So I've been laid up a bit...two trips to the chiropractor, lots of moaning and groaning, a heating pad and Advil. Blah. I'm going to try to get back to the gym tomorrow. We will see how that goes.
Now that the Oscar contenders have been announced, we (primarily defined as my mom and I) are on a mission to see as many of the movies as possible. This week we saw "The Imitation Game", "Ida" (nominated for Best Foreign Film and is Polish) and "American Sniper". All great movies but "American Sniper" kinda blew us away.
On the reading front? Eh. I did start reading "Where All the Light Tends To Go", and is a troubling but easy read. I am hoping to make some progress on it next week if I can stay away from that damned Wordbrain game. On audio I finished "Lock In" by John Scalzi. It was genius as far as world-building but the plot was a bit convoluted. It still was pleasant to listen to Wil Wheaton narrating. I'm now about halfway through "Ordinary Grace" by William Kent Krueger. I intentionally didn't read the synopsis, so I have no idea where it is going, but I'm enjoying it so far as a coming-of-age tale.
Tonight we are eating food that is bad for us and watching playoff football games. Go Colts. The kids have tomorrow off, so that takes some of the Sunday night pressure off the table. What has everyone been up to today?
