Maybe it's daylight savings, maybe it's just a weird day but I just felt totally off today. I felt like I woke up super early (I didn't thanks to losing an hour) and then I felt like the day flew by. I read for school, helped C pack for Hawaii, talked to the parents for a bit, and watched Dan in Real Life. I had tacos for lunch and ice cream for dinner. Odd.
The dogs have been glued to my side all day. They're not a huge fan of packing. I think they're anticipating getting left behind. Little do they know they're in for an entire week of sleeping on the bed. I always feel so weird in a bed all by myself so when C's out of town I usually let the pups sleep with me. They're extremely grateful.
what kind of 85 lb. dog wants to sit on your lap?
Dan in Real Life was actually really good. I wasn't sure what to expect but it was funny, sad, and happy in all the right places. And of course it ended with everyone living happily ever after which is something I expect in a movie. I mean life's unpredictable enough, why do I need movies to be?
Speaking of movies. I don't do well with scary movies or even "action packed"movies. But the worst thing in a movie for me is when an animal dies. I can take a battlefield of dead people but for some reason if a dog dies I can't help but cry. Last year when I was teaching Biology at the end of the year I let my students watch I Am Legend. (Now if you're thinking it's not on the approved video list, it's not, but my school wasn't that picky.) Anyway, I had never seen the movie before and when Will Smith had to STRANGLE HIS OWN DOG I just about lost it. In fact I had to step out for a minute because I didn't want to be crying in front of a room full of 14 year olds.
I'm looking forward to this week alone, even though I'll miss C like crazy. But, I have a lot of stuff I need to get done and I'm always much more productive when he's not around. I'm off now ... I have to get up at 3 to drive C to the airport.
