Okay, I love my Cricut Expression machine, and I used it last year to make my Christmas cards, but it's just more work to use it when you're just cutting squares of paper, so... I've resorted to my trusty Fiskars rotary paper cutter and I've been cutting out the squares for the cards - all weekend long... As of this moment, I am suffering from what I call paper cutter's elbow. Stiff shoulder, tired elbow and stiff right hand. I want to jump head first into a vat of Tylenol!
All right, maybe I didn't cut paper all weekend. But it sure seemed like it. I did some meaningful work on Saturday at the office and a client did come in to do his weekly invoices. The dogs and I watched Quigley Down Under for the umpteenth time - that movie never gets old and neither does Tom Selleck! I did some writing and then I re-read The Tightwad Gazette looking for money-saving ideas. Yes, I re-use zip-loc bags but I draw the line at re-using aluminum foil. You can check out the website here. On Sunday, we had Big Hug Sunday - that means Mom stays home with Aggie & Monty and we play and snuggle all day. I know, I know - they probably don't care, but I do. When I ran out of things to do around the house, we watched Silverado. I get a kick out of Kevin Kline and Jeff Goldblum trying to be cowboys - but I really enjoy Kevin Costner's stellar performance as an idiot. I watched both of my Netflix movies (3:10 to Yuma and Journey to the Center of the Earth) on Wednesday and Thursday so I had to resort to movies in my cabinet at home. Both of those movies were pretty good; I was surprised to learn that 3:10 to Yuma is based on a story by Elmore Leonard! I am not a big Russell Crowe or Christian Bale fan - and now I want to see the original with Glenn Ford. Brenda Fraser was his goofy self in Journey to the Center of the Earth - it was entertaining - a great kid movie. I love him in the Mummy movies - but my favorite is Blast from the Past. - especially when he dances. Yikes! Enough movie talk - I'd better get to work!
