Home Alone

When a married man and father ends up alone for a weekend, there is bound to be speculation about just what he did. Here's the list, in no particular order.

Rode Bike trainer for 1 1/2 hours.
Watched "Kill Bill Vol. 2" (it was as "slow", as the first was action packed)
Painted Kitchen
Ate meatloaf and potatoes (prepared by Leanna before her departure)
Slept
Watched "Escape from Atlantis" (this is perhaps the worst movie ever made)
Watched "Iron Eagles III" (it gives "Atlantis" a run, but in the end fails to be as terrible)
Rode bike for 1 1/2 hours outside. First road ride of the year.
More meatloaf and potatoes
More painting
Mounted new Kitchen Light
Watched "Lord of the Rings: the Two Towers" (despite being about the 10th time of seen it, this was the best movie experience of the weekend...by far)
Slept
More painting
Watched "Octopussy" (I've always loved Bond movies. In truth, this like most of the movies listed were just background noise while I painted.)
Ran for 2 1/4 hours (this was a big test, and I passed!)
Ate the rest of the meatloaf and potatoes
Fixed Mailbox
Watched NASCAR
Cleaned Kitchen

I think you get the idea. A married man, father of one, doesn't go out partying. He just chills. Add in plenty of coffee, and 1/2 dozen calls to Leanna, and that's my weekend. Final thought: Good god football season can't get here soon enough!

(PS: Speaking of movies, I just saw "Dirty Rotten Scoundrels" is showing on the "Mystery" channel. Isn't mystery a bit strong when referring to a Steve Martin movie?)
