Monday is for Packing.

Monday's are always so bittersweet for me. I have one day to get myself ready to go, and then I hit the road again... It's always really difficult. Most of my Monday is spent snuggling with the puppies and spending time in my home...it's really difficult to say good-bye to all of that for me.

This week I will be hitting the road for Midland, Texas....which right now, is getting hit with 7" of snow! Snow in Texas, and OF COURSE I have to fly right into it... I've canceled my class for tomorrow and will instead just be focusing on traveling there. Wednesday will be a longer class, and Thursday i'll be out of town and on my way to Dallas for a quick little overnight. Such a glamorous life, eh?

This weekend Spencer and I spent lots of time at the movies.
Saturday night we started it off watching....

SOOOOO GOOD! I mean, seriously... where was Robert Downey Jr. for so many years?! To come back from being an absolute joke in Hollywood, and become a mega star, is unbelievable! The man can just do no wrong! Iron Man...Sherlock Holmes... than again, maybe he just gets off on playing assholes...

Sunday afternoon we hit up a matinee of....

I have been anticipating this movie for the past year! The books were fabulous, intriguing, mind-bending and exciting... I had fear that the movie just would not live up! But, David Fincher did it yet again! (director of Fight Club, and many other great, dark, films) This movie was an amazing adaptation, and a BEAUTIFUL companion piece to the novel. For those who haven't read the book, the movie isn't confusing. For those who have read the book, the movie doesn't disappoint. The casting, the language, the graphic violence where nothing is left out.... it was truly beautiful... (in a dark and creepy way)

Tonight it's some good tv, laundry and packing...
I wish I didn't have to leave tomorrow....
I'll miss the hubby and puppies far too much...

I hope everyone has a fabulous Tuesday!
If you need me, i'll be on a plane... reading The Throne of Swords. :)
