Back to Work and Blog Journal Day 7

Hope everyone had a great Labor Day! I really hope you were able to enjoy a three day weekend! What is it about having a Monday off work that makes Tuesday 10 times worse? I wasn't feeling all that great yesterday, so I took a Nyquil last night. I have been suffering from a "Nyquil hangover" all day. Plus it's rainy and dreary outside, which makes me want to go home and go back to bed! Blah!

Since I wasn't feeling good yesterday, I pretty much stayed in bed all day and watched Brendan Fraser movies. (When I first typed this I had put that I was in bed all day and was kept company by Brendan Fraser- and realized that sounded REALLY bad. Good thing I re-read before I hit "publish post"). :) I forgot how much I like his movies. He's my favorite "goofy" actor (you know, he really does do a lot of silly roles). Well, with the exception of a few movies here and there. Yesterday I watched School Ties, Airheads and Mrs. Winterbourne. School Ties is actually one of his more serious roles. I forgot Matt Damon, Chris O'Donnell and Ben Affleck were in it. They all looked so young- and so cute! ;) I had a teenage girl **sigh** moment! It had been YEARS since I saw that movie.

I then watched Airheads. Yeah, one of his more "sillier" roles. But it was still funny!! I'm usually not a big fan of Adam Sandler, but I like this movie.

I finished up the marathon with Mrs. Winterbourne


Ricki Lake's performance in that movie bothered me when it came out, and it still bothers me today. I don't know why. I messaged my best friend on Facebook about watching it. When we saw it in 1996 we thought the baby was so cute (which he was). I told her I realized that the baby is now like 14 years old. Gosh, I feel old!! :)

I hadn't really planned to have a Brendan marathon, but in an attempt to delete stuff from my DVR, I ended up watching three movies of his that I had recorded. I still have two more left (Inkheart and Journey to the Center of the Earth). Maybe I'll watch those this weekend!


Day 7: A photo that makes you happy

I spent the weekend at my parents house, so I was able to visit with my little great-nephews that live next door to them. I couldn't find one picture of them together, so I'm posting two. These little munchkins make me smile!! :)

"C" showing off his new shades!

"E" having fun in the sandbox!

Tuesday Tag-Along


  1. Great photos. And there is hardly a better movie in the land than School Ties!!! Must have seen it a bazillion times! Cute boys galore. It's like Dead Poets Society, but cuter and dumber. Love it!

  6. I hate nyquil hangovers! I'm always like "Is this how the 10% alcohol affects me? No wonder I don't drink!!!!!"

    I don't think I've ever seen a Brendan Fraser movie. I might have to work on this. :)
