I was going to make a movie review entry tonight but had to fill in a number of forms today which took all my 'writing' time! So I'll just make a quick post.
Yesterday I went to see the travel agent about booking my trip to Europe. I gave him a list of the places I want to visit, with a wish list of hotels. We also discussed whether it is better to fly or use the train between certain countries. So it looks like my itinerary will be:
April 25 - fly to Amsterdam
April 27 or 28 - fly to Munich
From Munich to Augsburg
(I'm not sure of dates here)
Back to Munich, then fly to Naples, Italy
From Naples fly to Sevilla, Spain
(I want to be in Sevilla for May 3rd)
After that go to Cadiz
Possibly take train to Madrid, then back to Cadiz
From Cadiz to Lisbon
Fly home from Lisbon
I'm going to allow time to take an extra week if I think we need it.
*squeees* I'm so excited and there's 5 months left to go!
Olivia is going to fly home for Christmas. While at the travel agent's I bought her a return ticket from Vancouver to Toronto and mailed it to her today. She'll be coming in on December 21st and will return on the 29th. It will be good to see her again!
I had a dental appointment this morning to fix a chipped tooth. I had broken it on an almond. Here's a tip: always soak raw almonds in water for a few hours before eating them so they'll be soft. They still taste great, but won't be able to break your teeth!
Next Wednesday I have an appointment with a surgeon that we know (he's a neighbour of my boss) to see about getting some cosmetic surgery done. LOL. Now, before you laugh at me, it's to remove two HUGE brown moley things on the side of my face that have bugged me for years. They're not cancerous or anything, but I hate them. They've got to go.
What else? Ah. I got all Christmas-y and went to a cute little gift store near the dentist's and bought a couple of Christmas decorations. I didn't need them, but I was in the mood and couldn't help myself. They are wooden cardinals - my favourite birds!
Tomorrow is Sean's 6th birthday! I bought him a cake, some candles that spell his name, and a big '6'. And I brought out all the presents I bought him to wrap and then hide once again so the little dickens won't find them before the big day! He wanted to celebrate his birthday in the morning before he goes to school! I told him, "Sean, NOBODY celebrates their birthday at 7:30 in the morning! You'll go to school first, THEN we'll have your party afterwards!" LOL. Luckily, Friday is a Professional Activity Day for the teachers, which means NO SCHOOL! So he gets a long weekend!
Today I received my latest order of DVDs from Amazon. I got the Tudors second season, Queer As Folk's first season, and two Pablo Echarri movies. Pablo is an Argentine actor I fell in love with when I watched him in 'El Metodo' - The Method, as well as 'Plata Quemada' - Burnt Money. The films I just bought are 'Sin Escape' and 'No Debes Estar Aqui'.
Right. So after I put Sean to bed I will settle down to watch one of these films and if it's good, I'll add it to my review list!
That's all for now! Sorry for the lame post. I'll do better next time, I promise!
