New Word! And Other Stuff

Let me start off with this week's Saturday Scavenger Hunt word!  I was tagged by the Alien...and advised to choose wisely.  After careful consideration I am going to challenge you with - VANITY.  I can't wait to see what we can come up with!!!

I hope you all had a good weekend. Mine didn't feel long enough, but it was mostly fun.  If you are my Facebook friend or follow me on Twitter, you know that Saturday was my Big Hollywood Adventure with Milly.  We took the Gold and Red Lines (which are trains) into Hollywood.  It was the day before the Academy Awards, so we saw them doing all the hard work of setting things up for the big event.
Behold!  It is Mighty Ozymandias!  I mean Oscar.  Isn't he lovely?

While we were down there, we went to the Hollywood Museum.  They have a rather odd, eclectic collection of props and costumes from film and television projects through the decades.   Quite interesting.  After the museum we had a late lunch, then headed home.   I did enjoy the train part of the trip almost more than anything else :-)

Sunday, Handsome Lad had his final basketball game of the seaon.  He's enjoyed playing.  I guess next he will do Track at his school.  At least our Sundays will be freed up again.   

We did not watch the Academy Awards.  First WTG and I had to go rescue Secret Agent Man, who'd left his headlights on at work.  With the battery drained, we also couldn't open the door because of the alarm system, I guess?  Anyway, AAA came to the rescue, popped the lock and jumped the car and he was good to go.  When I got home Girlie Girl, Handsome Lad and I watch (500) Days of Summer.  Cute, light, just what I could manage.  

Tonight, I am hoping I will have a chance to talk with DR.  I feel like right now neither one of us are putting out best efforts into making time for each other.  Sometimes I feel pulled in so many directions that it is easiest to put off calling him.  Certainly he feels the same.   My feelings for him haven't changed, but when duty calls, that person across the country seems to have the lesser pull.   Still, in theory, only a couple more months of this!  

Now, on the rest of the week and all that jazz :-)

AAA was one of my best investments ever We've used them three times in the first month!

"in theory" captures the difficulty of your situation with DR.

Secret: I let it go once, and boy, did I regret it :-)
Yes...exactly..."in theory" is brutal.

I didn't realize there's a train! That must be way cool.
You should do a web cam with him.

I miss riding a train to go to work, I actually love our RTA system.

Oh and I love "(500) Days of Summer". "Honey, the faucets aren't working!"

Churlita said...

I need to get back on AAA.

I'm sorry your situation with DR is so hard now. I just hope things get better when he gets back in a couple of months.

NoRegrets: I would take the train every day if I could!
My bbf is a girl...a webcam thing might be fun :-)

Tara: They are always trying to fund an expansion of our Metro system. I'm all for it.

haha! It was sweet :-) I have to tell you something...there's a Chinese family in our bathroom.

Churlita: Everyone's car in my family needs the back-up :-)

Thank you, I am keeping faith that a couple more months will resolve this angst and anxiety.
