Remind me not to do that again…

Okay, so I was up till Oh-Dark-Thirty yesterday, which is not a Good Thing for me. MBB’s daughter Ashley, who lives with us, is dealing with walking pneumonia right now, as is her daughter Bella. Yesterday afternoon, MBB announced that she felt lousy and wished she had canceled work, (she was scheduled for the night shift again.) Then about 5:00 it hit me. Ugh. Head, belly, tired. Fortunately, the registry called and canceled MBB so she was able to sleep. But I had committed to help with yardwork at the church this morning, so at 5:00 I was up and getting ready. At the church at 5:30, mowed for 2 hours and then came home and went right back to bed. Not excited about doing anything else today, but there is yet much to do.

Note to self: don’t stay up so late.

Julie & Julia – Review

Julie & JuliaMy best-beloved is cardio-vascular ICU nurse. She works the 7pm-7am shift and has worked four of the last six nights, which means our schedules are exactly 12 hours out of sync with each other.

She is also a marvelous cook; my friends are amazed I don’t weigh 400 pounds.

Given these two facts, it should be unsurprising that we ended up at the midnight showing of Julie and Julia last night. She got to indulge her passion for food, and she’s up all night anyway, so what’s the big deal?

We had the theatre entirely to ourselves – there was no one else there.

We enjoyed it. If you like Food Network, or like Julia Child, or just like Meryl Streep, you’ll probably like this movie.

3 out of 5 stars.
