Ok, maybe adventures is too strong a word, but DSH and I did have a very full and interesting weekend. On Saturday we decided to go see a 12:10 showing of “Fireproof” in Natomas. I knew this movie was made by amateurs, with Kirk Cameron being the only professional actor, so I was expecting more cheesy acting than there was. I think the movie was very well done, and while the acting was weak in a few parts, the emotions conveyed and the strength of the storyline overcame all of that.
This movie has a very strong Christian message about the foundation of marriage and the importance of Christ in a person’s life. If ‘religion’ offends you, you may not want to see this movie.
At the end of the movie, the makers of the movie offer a link to “Fireproof My Marriage“, a site with resources to help develop and strengthen a great marriage.
While I was in the shower getting ready to go to the movie, Riley the Fierce earned a new name…Riley the Mousekiller. Our cats are indoor cats, only allowed out in the backyard when we’re home. They don’t have the chance to go mousehunting very often. On Saturday Riley proved his ‘cathood’ and killed a mouse. He brought it into the house to show to me, but since I was in the shower I missed it….thankfully!!! The poor mouse had been gutted and was rather gory.
Riley brought it all the way inside to the computer room and deposited it on the floor before meowing loudly for my attention (according to DSH 😛 ) DSH took some photos of the dead mouse (that’s how I know it was gory) before taking it back outside. He didn’t tell me about it until after we were back home from the movie.
DSH finally disposed of the carcass yesterday after church. Riley was making some smelly messes in the litterbox so I said no more eating mouse for him.
After the movie we went to Cost Plus to spend our last wedding gift card, and we purchased some placemats, napkins and napkin rings along with a couple of Christmas ornaments and a steamer basket.
That was Saturday 🙂 Yesterday was more of a normal day with attending church, and afterwards I went to Cost Plus again to exchange one of the Christmas ornaments (a peacock that was missing its crest). That was near a Linens-n-Things that closes today (Monday) so I decided to see if they had any good deals. They had a few, but for a store that was going out of business items were still priced very high. I can see why that company had to declare bankruptcy and close so many stores. Overpriced they are.
I then went to SuperWalmart in West Sacramento to do grocery shopping for the week, and ended up in what I thought would be a short line, but I was next in line for almost 20 minutes. The poor lady in front of me had nothing but problems. First her package of cow tongues (eeewwwww!) wouldn’t ring up, so an employee had to go find another which took nearly 10 minutes, then the poor lady’s debit card wouldn’t work, so she finally had to leave her purchases. The clerk had to cancel the sale, log out, and a new clerk log on. Finally I was done and headed home.
At home I made chili and a breakfast casserole for the week, watched some of America’s Funniest Videos and looked forward to DSH coming home from the Sunday night service our church has.
There you have our weekend adventures 🙂 Stay tuned for more exciting adventures! Or maybe (MUCH more likely) some not-so-exciting adventures.
