Saturday Rambles...

So the original plan was to go see Watchmen last night. Then we decided it would be better if we waited to today and went to see a late Matinee. The Boy is still at work, but when he gets back we're planning on hitting up a a 4:15 showtime.

So instead we decided to go to the grocery store. There isn't a really good grocery store close to us. There is one, and I can't remember the name of it, but it always seems a little ghetto. Then we live pretty much in between a Whole Foods and a Fresh Market, both of which are about 5 mins away. But in an effort to conserve money we went to Target. Because in Louisiana Target's have a full on grocery inside. I was not allowed to go to the Target side of the store, to save both time and money, but nonetheless a good deal of damage was done.

Full Pantry
Now some of this was already there, but a good portion was bought last night. My favorite part? The can of re-fried beans in the center for tacos tonight.

For the rest of the low-key evening? Well, the boy's sister called and asked if we could babysit while they went to a movie. They actually did go see Watchmen last night. They went to like a 9pm showing, so by the time they go here the Boy's niece was out, and slept for most of the time she was here.

This morning about two hours after the boy left for work I rolled out of bed and made myself a cup of coffee. And had a Nurtigrain bar, which was purchased last night.
Coffee and Nutrigrain Bar
I went through a big Nutrigrain phase in high school. And know I do like them, but by the time there's only 1 or 2 left in the box I get tired of eating them. I had to buy these those because they were a new flavor. Blackberry. Not to bad. Although nothing will ever live up to Peach Nutrigrains, which they stopped making.

Since it was actually warm and sunny out today I made it out to the pool.
Out at the pool
Well it was a little cool when the clouds blocked out the sun, it was far better than laying out in the middle of summer here. Where you are covered in sweat after 10 minutes of sitting still.
I got about a little over an hour, before the wind starting picking up and I came in. I'm still wearing my bathing suit, which 8 months later still smells suspiciously like the Dead Sea. I'm not too sure that smell will ever fully go away...

So the plan for tonight: Watchmen and Tacos! I'm excited!


  1. We're going to see Watchmen tomorrow night.

    You have no idea how jealous I am that you are lying out by your pool. It was blizzarding here last night and we got about two inches of snow!

  2. We were totally going to see the Watchmen last night, but also decided to put it off...It's almost 3 hours long! Maybe we'll go on Cheap Tuesday :P

    I am so jealous that you actually went swimming outside. Even though it's sunny here, there's still quite a bit of snow on the ground.

  3. Soooo jealous. I cannot wait to lay by the pool. Soon...very soon :)
