Well I am officially hooked on Heroes... I had watched an episode or two then for some reason had to skip a couple and tried to get back into and ... was lost. I got the DVD's this week and well I am hooked and will definitely remember to record it.

I hope you enjoy your long weekend. We'll resume posts on Tuesday.

Yesterday we had a power outage... it wouldn't have been so bad but it was 100+ in the shade and I had work falling of my desk. So short and sweet today - next weekend plan to take some time off. If you don't have a 3 day weekend then why not make is so you can have 3 days off. You don't have to go anywhere just spend some time with your family and doing things that you've wanted to do for a while but have been putting off.

A DVD that I'm pretty excited about comes out next week too - I think I'll spend some time watching that with Lisa and Haley (the DVD is "Heroes").

Have some fun this weekend too - remember even God rested on the 7th day.

Where has the week gone.... I don't think I've mentioned yet but during the Summer we bought a Play Station 2. We debated between the play station 2 and 3 (this was before the playstation 3 price drop). We decided that since the 2 had more games we would go with that. Haley especially wanted to buy a "singing" game. She got it ( Singstar Pop) and I must say that it has been a lot of fun for the entire family. It includes songs that almost everyone would hear on the radio constantly and of course it has the words at the bottom of the screen as well as where the "pitch" for the note should be. If you have anyone who loves to sing along with the radio I would highly recommend it.

Last weekend we had a good adventure ... as you probably know by now I enjoy adventures. The goal of our trip to Lexington was school shopping for Haley. I heard or read something that made me chuckle. Why do people go school shopping, do all of their clothes magically disappear when they go to school or do they all suddenly not fit. I guess it is a coup for the marketing folks that we think we need to buy new clothes every fall.

Anyway the trip was enjoyable. I got a bit of work done and the Mac is performing beautifully. I did get parallels desktop for Mac. It does work well, some of the programs actually seem to work faster than on my 'main' computer.

I will say that Saturday we shopped for clothes for about 8 hours. I really don't see how someone could look at the same styles over and over. It also amazes me how a shirt in one shop is $40 and in another it is $10, and in a 3rd it is $60 but half off. It would be fun to do a marketing test and find out which one someone would buy if they had all three choices in one spot.

The hotel we stayed in was the comfort suites. It was kind of weird but our door lock (you know the one's that you slide the card in) malfunctioned. I didn't know that those locks took batteries. The lock ended up being kaput so we got a night for free...

On Sunday we watched Harry Potter and I say it was a great movie - I still need to read the last two books. Hopefully your weekend will be enjoyable. We have a birthday party at the skating rink and besides that playing some catch up.
