Monday Musings

I'm home! Very happy to be back. It was very tiring, but worth it. My daughter and I had so much fun together. I love having her all to myself. We had dinner at the Hard Rock Cafe and lunch at Bubba Gumps. We saw New Moon on Saturday. We never go to first run movies so that was a treat for both of us. She swam with her friends and ran around with them at the Denver convention center.

It was so cute to hear all the sighs and/or sharp intakes of air whenever Jacob Black/Taylor Lautner appeared on screen (usually shirtless.) He's one of my daughter's crushes. I have to admit I'm Team Jacob. I've already posted my thoughts on the Twilight books, and this movie did nothing to change my mind. The pace picks up whenever the movie deals with Jacob and his werewolf brothers, but plods along whenever it's about the blood suckers or Bella. Exactly the way I felt with the book.

Thanks for all the good thoughts and wishes for my daughter's dancing. She didn't reach the goal she set. That was so hard on her, but there's always next year. I must admit though, I'm ready to be done with Irish dancing. There are a few parts of it that I really don't care for. If the kidlets said they wanted to quit today, I wouldn't try to change their minds. But it's their decision to make, not mine.

Well, I need to get writing. That December 1st is looming heavily on me. I still haven't caught up which means crazy times ahead.

Hope you had a great weekend!

Glad you had a good time. I agree about the dancing. As long as they follow through for a while and don't quit right away, I would never push it. It's good you are letting her make the decision. Love the pic.

The picture is hilarious. I'm sorry your daughter didn't reach her goal. It's rather heartbreaking for them and all you can do is comfort her.
Daughter is sort of on Team Jacob, too. She said her favorite comment she's seen is "Real men don't sparkle". *G*

I hope you get some rest before your house guests arrive this week! Have a great day!
