|Loved this movie as a teen.|
The only downside of this week is that my wife has to bear the brunt of the stress involved with a crowded apartment by herself, for the the most part; I still have a 9to5-er to go to during the day. But, she will get her break in the evenings, when she has to go to work, and I get to stay home. Oddly, the biggest problem we run into, it seems, is figuring out how to feed this army of finicky eaters. But, my wife generally has a good handle on that, so it's not too bad, all things considered.
I spent the day lazing around the house yesterday. I didn't actually go outside for anything all day. I should have spent the time reading. Either for school or pleasure (or even... *GASP* ...writing!!). But my brain just wasn't having it. Besides there were bad guys to shoot in CoD: Black Ops II. The funny thing is that both Isaac and I play that game the same way. A lot of profanity, cries of cheating, and even more profanity and creative insults. We had my wife and daughter in stitches yesterday.
I did manage some reading, though. I finished the third story arch in the Punisher MAX series, entitled "Mother Russia." Very brutal, tense, and foul-mouthed, and it included a guest appearance by Nick Fury (and not the Sam Jackson version). I loved the relationship between Nick and Frank, and I hope that continues on occasion in the future.
I don't think we have anything planned for this week. Tomorrow my in-laws are coming down to have lunch with us and visit with Faith. Other than that, it's just hanging out at home for the kids. But, they're all Xbox-babies, so it shouldn't be too bad. There will probably be some major cleaning and organizing this week, as well. The Spring Cleaning bug has already hit my wife (despite the snow we were having yesterday), and frankly, our place needs it. With that many people living in such a small space, it's hard to keep up with it all. So, we will need to buckle down and get into it this week.
Writing Fantasy Heroes: Powerful Advice from the Pros today. Very much looking forward to digging into this. I will post a full review somewhere down the line, for sure.
