SATURDAY EVENING

Well, after I posted my entry this morning Barbara called and said she couldn't go to the movie today after all, so I dug in and started to get stuff done around the house.  Then she called about 2:30pm and said she could go and was on her way over.  We went to see Hugh Jackman's new film "The Fountain."  I haven't seen a movie that weird since "2001, A Space Odyssey."  It was weird, weird, weird !!!!!   We were absolutely baffled about the meaning of this movie.  Anyway, the popcorn was good. 

I talked to Jim before we left.  He said the right side of his face is so swollen today he can barely see out of his right eye.  He admitted that it didn't feel all that bad yesterday so he didn't really ice it like he should have.  But today, he's staying right on top of it.  he was supposed to go to work tonight but called his boss yesterday and told him what happened so was excused from work tonight.  Actually the Emergency Room doctor wrote him a note to be off thru next Wednesday.  So he's just going to play it by ear for the next few days.

It's still cold tonight but there was no rain/snow here in my area.  It was actually sunny most of the day but the temperature didn't get above about 42 degrees.   I think if it stays this way until tomorrow, I may get the lawn mower out and run it over the front yard.  There's still all the debris from the cedar tree and now a bunch of leaves, etc. from all over the neighborhood.  If I run the lawn mower over it....it will be green and nice at least for a day or so.  

Well, I'm going to go clean the bathrooms and then maybe it will be time to go down the hall with my book and my kitty.   Speaking of books...I started a new one the other day.  It the new book from Richard Paul Evans (The Christmas Box) and it's titled  Finding Noel.   I think it's going to be a good one.  I've read all of his books since  The Christmas Box and there was only one I didn't really care for.   Until next time.....Linda

Glad Jim is faring well and was excused from work.  I don't know about the Fountain.  I thought it looked kind of different. Hope y'all warm up.
Take care and enjoy your book.

We were just discussing what movie to see tomorrow - I think we are going with Happy Feet down the road from you.  I'm looking forward to some good movie pop corn! Pathetic, huh?  Continuing to think positive thoughts for your son.  Keep us posted on he's doing.

The movie sounded weird weird weird lol glad the popcorn was good though ~ Hope Jim's swelling on his face soon goes down ~ and isn't too sore ~ at least he has until next Wednesday to get it better ~ if he decides to stay off that long ~ good luck with cutting the lawn and clearing the leaves away that is a thankless task ~ Ally

Tell Jim to take care of his face....I am glad you got to spend some time with a friend.  I am going Christmas shopping this Monday with my friend Kim.  I just wish I knew what to get!  Have a good day! Barbara

Jim still has a few days to rest and recover,and of course in situations like this shock is another factor that will  make him feel ill ,I do hope he soon feels better ..love Jan xx

Hi Linda,  I hope Jim`s face feels better soon, it sounds very sore.  I don`t like films that are hard to understand, I`ll give that one a wide berth!  :o)
