Where Does the Time Go?

I can't believe it's the weekend already. The Husband and I took a "date night" tonight and left the Short One with his grandmother (said G. always enjoys telling us that the SO didn't even know we were gone on the occasions when she visits and babysits - some day I suspect she will simply tuck him under her arm and take him back home with her without telling us). We went to see the new Indiana Jones movie. The movie was fun and didn't require a lot of strenuous thought, which was basically what we needed. I am not really up on any of the young actors these days (I feel like such an old fogey), but I must say that I tend to enjoy Shia LaBeouf's movies. Before the SO was born, H. and I actually went to see "Holes" by ourselves at the theater. Really a great movie - a cute story involving two boys who form an unlikely friendship in an unlikely place, a family curse and hidden treasure - and one we intend to introduce to the SO when he's old enough. If you have young kids, I recommend it.

I'm determined to get a few things done this weekend, so hopefully I will have new work to show for it next week. In the meantime, here's a little bead blogging linky love: Jewelry Making

Hey, Lorelei - Wow, your husband is a teacher? I admire his stamina - I don't think I could keep up with all of the kids!
