Well, it’s Oscar Weekend, and I don’t care. I’ll be writing and reading instead of watching the award show. I just finished watching Inception, and I’m a little confused. It was a good movie, though. I won’t get into a recap, but I would definitely watch it again. The plot does need a second viewing just to get everything to make sense, but it is worth a third or fourth.
I was planning on doing outside things this weekend like walking the dogs through the woods, but the snow put the kibosh on those plans. I like snow, and it was gorgeous outside, but it was cold as hell. I’m ready for winter to be over, but we apparently have another 2 weeks or so of the cold and white. At least the groundhog didn’t see his shadow this year, or winter would last until April. I’m sure it will anyway, since, hey, it’s Minnesota we’re talking about here.
The weekend with no roommates has been wonderful, even if my mom has been anxious to get me to do something with her. I’ve been busy enjoying my solitude and the ability to sit down without someone asking me if I’ve had enough to eat or if I would like some roast beef. I love my grandma, but she is a little overbearing sometimes. I couldn’t ask for a better grandmother or roommate. Grandpa has even taken to asking me if I’ve eaten yet. Apparently lunch needs to be precisely at 12:30, which is when I usually wander upstairs after finally showering for the day. Gotta love ‘em, though. I don’t know what I’d do without them.
Obviously this is an older picture of them, but it captures their relationship perfectly. Grandpa is a goofball and grandma just shakes her head and occasionally adds an “Oh, Austin” for good measure. I’m kinda missing them already. Just don’t let them know.
Until next time,
