Someday, when I'm awfully low...

. . . and the world is cold (and full of stuff I should have done last month), I will feel a glow just thinking of you, and the way we were productive this weekend.

Sinatra, it ain't, but we got so much work done this weekend! We went to a couple of stores and got some "storage solutions" (read: shelves) and pulled the laundry room into shape. We cleared some more unpacked boxes from the move out of the living room to make room for the other couch which should arrive in the next few weeks. We organized our closet and got rid of some more clothes, etc. to charity. We finished some lingering projects and filed so many part-year resident income tax forms that I blacked out and when I came to, I thought I worked for H&R Block. Seriously people - 4 different income tax returns this year. Don't be us, okay? Don't move around so much!

In between bouts of organizing and shopping, we watched a movie we'd rented from the library: Wait Until Dark, which was made in 1967 and stars Audrey Hepburn and one creepy Alan Arkin. It's a great movie and if we ever get the chance to see the stage show on which it was based, K and I decided we'd totally do it. We later returned said movie (on time!), shopped for the many weddings we have to attend, and got kitty a new toy. He reminded me of the Old Prospector from that famed SNL skit, so as I sign off, enjoy a picture of him cuddling with Persephone:

Love at first sniff - yay for catnip-filled toys!

I love that movie! It is so creepy and I was just trying to remember the title a few weeks ago. So, thank you for watching it and sharing about it. Now I remember what it was called. I think I watched on cable a few years back. It was very good.

Anyway, I'm glad you had such a productive weekend. Mine was wonderfully free from any academic activities (not because there weren't any to do, but just because I didn't want to.) It was refreshing.

My hubby is supposed to emailing yours about the possibility of sharing a hotel for the upcoming wedding. If he doesn't email, we will be in touch.

Thanks for the link to your blog. The New Couch definately has swank. Don't you feel excessively old now that you are a couch owner? Whats next? A wheel chair? We are grown-ups. Grocery shopping, tax filing, diaper changing (in my case) and all. How'd it happen??? Weren't just decorating our lockers?
