4-Day Weekend

Lucky for Husband and me, we happen to have the day off today as well, making this a glorious 4-day weekend. And I thought 3-day weekends were great, but 4-day weekends are even better. (I can’t imagine what retirement is like when every week is a 7-day weekend!)
Here are the highlights, so far:
- Driving: We made a quick road trip this weekend. The trip made me understand why people say that “the fun is in the journey and not the destination.” That may be also true because we weren’t visiting someplace like Hawaii, where the fun is the destination. But even still, it was nice for us to get away and have some uninterrupted time together. We shared a lot of laughs along the way. - Watching: I watched the movie My Life in Ruins with the actress from My Big Fat Greek Wedding. I knew it probably wasn’t going to be as funny as My Big Fat Greek Wedding (and I was right), but it was still a light, fun movie. I did fall asleep during the last part of it, but that’s only because I seem to have narcolepsy whenever I watch a movie. Eventually, I did watch the ending, which was cute.
- Reading: I just got my copy of “A Homemade Life” by Molly Wizenberg in the mail. I’ve wanted to read it for a long time, and I finally ordered it last week. I usually don’t recommend a book until I’ve finished it, but so far, I’m quite smitten with it. The book has lots of short stories about her life and the recipes associated with each story. It’s one of the few books that has made me hungry while reading it.
Happy Cinco de Julio! (I guess that doesn’t have quite the same ring to it, but hope you have a happy day regardless.)

4 day weekends are amazing! I had a 3.5! We got out early on Friday! Sounds like a great weekend...and I was wondering about that movie.

Long weekends are GREAT! I've been wondering if that movie was any good, I'll have to check it out!

I've seen the movie and you're right...it isn't as funny, but it's not awful either AND I've read the book you mentioned too. It's a great book!
