It's Tuesday. Nothing too special about that, other than it's time for Random Tuesday Thoughts. If you'd like to participate, link up at The Un Mom.
I'm going to see Alice in Wonderland in theaters tonight. Johnny Depp is great for getting fully enveloped in the characters he plays. That, and he makes nice eye candy. I'm a tightwad and won't pay the extra $3 to see it in 3D. That's the whole reason for going on Bargain Tuesday nights...to save money with reduced admission and free popcorn. I'm not about to shell out more for a movie than necessary. I have high expectations for this movie and hope those expectations are met.
Speaking of movies that didn't meet my expectations, I saw Fighting the other night on DVD. I heard great things about it. I must be getting my reviews from the wrong group of people because the movie bored me out of my skull. The last two minutes were the most climatic and even that wasn't worth watching the other 100 minutes that led up to it.
My youngest son was in his first official RC car race Saturday. He's been at the races playing the part of "pit crew" but he got to be a part of the action finally. When I stopped by there to see him, he was focused and giddier than a schoolgirl. I barely got in the door when he ran up to tell me "Mom, I got to race once already and I made last place. Yay!!!!" Now that's a boy with spirit!
Clear the sidewalks people; my oldest daughter got informed this week that she will be receiving her license in just a couple months if she passes her BTW class and tests. It's hard to imagine she'll be 16 shortly. I'll be having a "Shelby's Sweet 16 Celebration" blog event coming up in April. Be there or be square!
I was excited to hear of temps breaking 50 here. I was all pumped to get outside and see some sun. Guess I was fooled; it's been raining. Oh well, can't win 'em all.
