One Long Relaxing Weekend

I really appreciate the comments on my last post.  I think one of the most important things we can do for each other is realize that everyone has things no one else can see happening.  And like Joyce pointed out, we all could use more grace.

Anyway, with all of that said, I don't really have a great deal to talk about today.  I had a wonderful, very low-key weekend.  I tried to clean a bit and redecorate, which was reasonably successful if you keep your standards low.  After all of that very strenuous rearranging, I needed to rest so I watched a great deal of daytime TV, teaching me valuable piece of knowledge.  For instance, did you know Honey Boo-Boo's mom is only 33?  As in only two years older than me?  And a grandma?  Or that Ricki Lake has a new, non-trashy daytime talk show?

Rest assured,  I didn't just gorge myself on TV this weekend.  I watched some movies too.  Lulu and I went to see Pitch Perfect on Friday evening.  It was funny enough, particularly Rebel Wilson, who I didn't care for at first and now find truly hilarious.  Did you see her on Ellen singing my favorite old school rap song ever?

I also watched Clueless again, influenced by the Entertainment Weekly reunion article.  I mean, I think the whole cast is actually better looking now than they were then.  I don't think Stacey Dash (Dionne) has aged at all and she's in her forties.  It's been a while since I've seen this movie, even though I own it, but I was thrilled to find that it's still really funny.  Even the jokes that are dated made me laugh.  (And the cutting edge cell phones that were the size of a Buick are almost too much to take!)

What did you do this weekend?  Did you travel somewhere fun or just stay around the house?  It's your turn to share in the comments.


  1. Clueless is a classic. And I can still quote more than half of the movie. Not sure if that's a good or bad thing. Bahaha.

    1. As my friends will attest, I am terrible at quoting movies. It doesn't matter how many times I have seen it, I still mess up the reference 9 times out of 10.

  2. I did hear about Ricki Lake having a daytime show, though I haven't seen it yet. How was it? Sounds like a very relaxing weekend! And thanks for sharing that video- I literally laughed out loud! My weekend was spent out and about picking apples and pumpkins, visiting a winery with friends, and celebrating a birthday.

    1. The show was actually really interesting. It was not the tacky "Maury-esque" show it used to be. Her panel, all very educated people, discussed all sorts of things (some edgy, some funny). It was a nice change.

      Sounds like you had a pretty good weekend too!
