Turn out the lights........

the party's over. This weekend just flew by too fast for me. We went and saw Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince on Friday. It was just okay for me. Chris and the kids really enjoyed it but I almost fell asleep towards the end of the movie. They're setting up the story line for the next couple of movies so it was a lot more explaining of things than of doing things in the movie. We watched Eureka and Warehouse 13 on Friday night. Its nice having something good on Sci Fi again. I miss the old SG1 and Stargate Atlantis though. We also watched Wizards of Waverly Place with the kids. I think Chris and I really like some of these Disney shows more than the kids do. It reminds me of when I was little and we watched Wonderful World of Disney on TV with Mom and Dad on Sunday nights. I loved Fess Parker as Davy Crockett. Saturday I got up and went to the grocery store and we just hung around the house the rest of the day. Nothing like a nice quiet day. Today we watched Knowing with Nicolas Cage. It was totally not what I expected. It was a really good movie. It kept me on edge the whole time. It got to the ending and I realized it was very familiar to a scifi story I read years ago. I'm going to have to research and see if it was based on the story I read or not. Then we watched Hannah Montana with the kids. Again, another Disney show that sucks you in. LOL. Chris goes back on the road tomorrow and will be back in on Friday. Next weekend we're going to start back to school shopping. School starts the 24th here and the kids just want summer to last all year I think. LOL.

  1. The party is ending too soon here too! I hate it! I never saw or heard of Knowing. Is it a new movie or old one? I'll have to look into that. I really miss watching movies at work. I need to look for a new dvd player!

  3. Knowing came out this spring at the movies I think. Not sure but its on DVD now. I got it along with Push in a two DVD set. Chris is enjoying watching movies on his new laptop. I need to ask him what he's doing with his old dvd player. Knowing him he already gave it away but if not maybe I can send it to you Lori. I'll let you know.

    You sound like us Dena. We're waiting for the last minute too. The weekend before school starts is our tax free weekend. Talk about cutting it close. LOL.
