World Cup Weekend

PixlrHot and humid again. Ugh. The beginning part of the week wasn't so bad. It was warm/hot but not really all that humid. But as the week progressed the humidity increased. Supposed to last through at least tomorrow I think when we may get a line of storms that might clear some of it out. I know you're supposed to love summer but with this hot and humid weather combined with all the craziness at work, summer is really not my favorite season. I love fall but what I hate about it is that it always has such a bittersweet feeling to it because it is ultimately followed by winter. And more snow and ice and cold. Ugh. I am all sorts of cheerful this morning it seems. Just not ready yet to face another week I think.

The weekend was pretty good all in all. Saturday we went to the movies and saw "Sorry to Bother You". I honestly don't even have the first idea how to begin to describe that movie. I would recommend going to see it, lot of social commentary, symbolism and whatnot. The NY Times said "If you’re not bothered — also tickled, irked, mystified and provoked — by Sorry to Bother You, then you’ve fallen asleep on the job" After the movies we went for lunch and then in the evening I just vegged out and binge watched a bunch of "Outlander". 

Then yesterday was the World Cup final. The game was on at 11 here on the East Coast and some sports bars opened at 10 so we went to our local bar TKs to hang out and watch the game. I was rooting for Croatia who ultimately didn't win but at least it wasn't a boring game and Croatia did do a good job. Had way too much fattening food (nachos & wings) followed by a small pizza before heading home and catching up on some recorded TV shows. 

Now it's already Monday again and another week ahead. Dentist appointment on Thursday, other than that nothing too crazy going on. This past week on Wednesday we went to Lucas Local and saw our friend John play and on Thursday we went to J. Lawrence where they also happened to have live music. 

My dad was released from the hospital yesterday as well so that's good news. He's back home and needs to schedule some follow up appointments as well as some physical therapy sessions but hopefully all continues well.
