There's A Song in There Somewhere

The weekend:

Thought about going out all day Saturday, ended up doing nothing more exciting than hitting the grocery store to get kitty litter. Then got dolled up and taken out to a very nice Italian place for dinner - it was beyond excellent, and fun to wear my new dress, which is just too snazzy for work but I hadn't had a chance to wear it anywhere else yet. Had seafood-stuffed manicotti, delicious, with prosciutto & melon appetizer. We all shared around and everything was unbelievably delicious.

Sunday was even worse, as we never ventured outside the home - so much for my last few days sans-cast. But of course, there really wasn't anything to DO, and we've reached the absolute worst days of Arizona's summers, where the humidity is the highest (we're getting the tail ends of Hurricane Dean up here, which means clouds, a little rain, and a LOT of soggy hot air) and the temperature is still above 105 (it was 109 yesterday). But our contractor did come to discuss the final estimate and particulars and we signed all the contracts, so they will be starting SOON - with a completion date of November 17! WOOT! We should have New Kitchen before the holidays!

This morning I caught the last half hour or so of Jaws, so stopped to watch (another of those movies I have on DVD but still watch when I catch it on TV), and it was followed by a movie I've wanted to see in its entirety for some years: Remember the Titans. They showed us clips of this show years back in a "team building" exercise at work, and showed just enough that I knew I wanted to see it, but I never got around to renting it. Now I have seen the whole thing, and DAMN, this is a fine, fine movie. Even if you don't like inspirational, heart-touching, slightly schmaltzy football movies, it's amazingly good. Also includes a few actors who went on to do other things, like Donald Faison (Turk from Scrubs) and Ethan Suplee (Randy from My Name Is Earl), as well as a teeny little girl Hayden Panettiere (Claire from Heroes).

I then watched Disc Two of the Expanded Lord of the Rings (someone on my friends list quoted me exactly where in the books it says Legolas is, indeed, blond, but I've forgotten both the quote and who did the quoting, so now I'm left wondering again, because wood elves are supposed to be dark), and now I have to go to bed so I can get up at the crack of dawn so I can be at the hospital at 6 a.m. (Surgery is scheduled for 7.) I have the "you sat around all day doing nothing" tiredness, which probably means I won't sleep well, but at least all I have to do at the hospital is lay there sleeping...

Thanks! It was the easiest time I think I've ever had. All the things I've learned from previous ones were taken into account and I was home sleeping in my recliner by around 9 this morning! So far, all is well!

Ack! I'm behind in my lj-reading, so by now you've had the surgery. I hope it went well and recovery will go smoothly.
