Happy Memorial Day

First and foremost on this day, I would like to remember those who have given their life in service to this great nation. Their sacrifice (and that of their families) is the reason we walk in freedom. Thank you.
This is the one holiday we don't get off that everyone else and their mother does. Blah! Oh well, I had things I needed to get done. David and Joe went fishing. I love it when David gets to hang out with his brothers and have a little fun. I hope they catch something, but I hope he doesn't expect me to eat it. Fish is not happening for dinner at our house...YUCK! Fish sticks, maybe.
We finished priming the walls in the nursery this weekend. This ended up being a big oops on my part. I didn't go with David when he purchased the primer, so I didn't realize it was oil based until I had already helped with the first coat. I wondered why I couldn't get the paint off the brushes and rollers....and me, DUH! Thankfully I did have my mask on (which probably didn't help keep the fumes away anyway, just the dust), and the room was very well ventilated. I wasn't in the room very long and didn't help with the second coat of primer. I stayed on the other side of the house in our bedroom. I watched Dear John while I folded laundry. Dear John didn't make me as weepy as I thought it would, but it was pretty good.
Saturday evening we went to the theater to see Prince of Persia: Sands of Time. I really liked it! It is way too violent for kids to watch in my opinion, but it is a pretty good adult movie.
We had family dinner on Sunday as usual and David and I ended the evening watching DayBreakers. That one wasn't as scary as I thought it would be, but we enjoyed it. It is very sad, our Movie Gallery is officially closing now, so we tried the Red Box for the first time. The only thing I didn't like was the fact that one of the movies I wanted to rent wasn't available. It was on the list, but I guess they were all sold out. A friend told me early in my pregnancy that if there were any movies we wanted to watch, to watch them now, because that would soon be a thing of the past, so I'm taking her advice. It is a fun and relaxing thing David and I can do together. I just need to lay off the movie popcorn from now about salt cravings!
