Re-entry into the real world has been tough, as always. I couldn't get to sleep last night because my brain was spinning with to-do lists, things to remember, drafts of things I need to write, etc. So, as a result, I felt pretty crappy today and spent the day on the couch (though still working all day on the laptop - a mistake, I know). I just cancelled out on dinner and book group tonight with my two closest friends. I know it was the right decision because I feel more relief than disappointment (even though I love those evenings out!). So, I'm back here on our saggy couch, having shared take-out pizza with Ken and the boys, still very achy and knowing I made the right choice. Looking forward to watching Glee tonight (I'm a new convert) and going to bed early.
So, obviously not a lot of time for movies while on vacation last week (none in fact), but we did watch one before the trip and one this weekend:
- While Ken was in Europe, I watched Dirty Rotten Scoundrels with Jamie and Craig, that classic silly movie starring Steve Martin and Michael Caine. They loved it, as I knew they would! We've been watching a lot of movies featuring scams and capers lately.
- This weekend, Ken and I watched The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, which I had seen before at a little independent theater with my neighbor and book group buddy. Ken recently read the wildly popular 3-book series, so I knew he'd enjoy the movie. Both the books and the Swedish movies are excellent, though they are quite disturbing at times, as they include some gruesome murders and brutal rape - not for everyone. I can't imagine the Hollywood versions could be any better - but I'm sure I will see them when they come out!
