Weekly Reads (02/03/17)
I feel like every week I'm coming her and mentioned what a crazy, hectic week it's been. In fact, I'm now starting to think that crazy and hectic are the norm. Mr. Barb is taking a Public Speaking class this first 1/2-term for college so I've been busy recording them and then figuring out technology so he can post them, view other and attend live ones on line. Also, I've had to travel two days this week for work which has worn me out. I don't mind driving, but I'm finding it really exhausts me over time.
We watched a few movies this week. We ended up watching "When the Bough Breaks" which for some reason I thought was a remake of "The Hand That Rocks the Cradle" - guess what, nope, it's not. It was pretty good but pretty predictable in the "crazy surrogate" way. Then we rented "The Girl With All the Gifts" which I really loved. I haven't read the book, but do plan to since there is a sequel coming out. The young lady who played the MC is awesome and I think it's a must-watch for any horror lover. Finally, we watched Tyler Perry's "Boo! A Madea Halloween." It was just what I expected but was good for a few laughs and I didn't have to think to hard to enjoy it.
I am almost finished with my current read, Bredan Reich's "Nemesis" and I am loving it. However, I've heard it ends on a huge cliffhanger so we'll see how I feel about it at the end. After that, I hope to move on to "Death by Chocolate Lab" and "Guardian of Secrets" so not much has changed from last week.
The pups are doing great and Booker T has been taking hip and joint supplements (since he is almost 7 - no real problems yet) and he seems to want to play with Cassius more so they have been having some fun. Not a lot of walks though because of rain and/or snow.
Hope everyone else out there has an awesome week ahead and thanks for stopping by.
