There’s nothing like actually enjoying a weekend to help recharge your batteries properly. Too often, I feel like the weekend flew by and I have nothing to show for it, nothing accomplished. However, I can honestly say that this weekend I not only accomplished a lot, but I also enjoyed it thoroughly.

Today I went to see the new X-Men movie, Wolverine. Having seen all three previous movies (and being horribly disappointed with the most recent), I didn’t go in expecting much but I really liked it. It was interesting to learn about Wolverine’s background.. although, being the chick that I am, I had to cover my eyes during most of the violent fighting scenes (of which there were many). And speaking of, why do people take their really young children to see these kind of movies? I mean, the line “blow his brains out all over the road” (and I’m paraphrasing here, though that could be the actual line, word for word) shouldn’t be heard by someone under the age of 13, don’t you think?

When I got out of the movies, the sky had gone from overcast to partly sunny… and by the time I got done grocery shopping, it was nearly cloudless. Perfect weather to sit out by the pool and read a good book. Ahhh.

Unfortunately tomorrow it’s back to work… but at least this weekend was well spent!

So I have a bad feeling about the rest of the school year. It’s already been long and drawn out as it is but it’s slowly going downhill – this is the part of the year where the kids start dreaming about summer and forget how to behave in class. And the students aren’t the only ones dreaming about summer… the teachers have been counting down for quite a while! For the record, the countdown for my school is at 5 weeks, 24 days of classes. Plus 1 more week after that for in service.

This picture, by the way, is something I saw while I was waiting for my lunch at the cafe next door from my work. Any guesses as to what it is? Hee hee. I thought it made for quite an interesting picture… too bad it’s kind of gritty since it was taken with my camera phone.

I’m excited that the weekend is finally here. I need to clean up my apartment, and I’m hoping the weather will be nice enough to relax by the pool. I’m debating going by the Japanese Tea Gardens here in town, to take pictures. I just worry about doing those kinds of things by myself, especially since I’ve never been. :p

Btw, you guys do know that you can click on any pics in a blog post and it will take you to the flickr page right?  Just checking…
