Today was my third (and thankfully, the last) day of "calling in sick" at work. Over the recent weekend, my cough and colds got worse so I wasn't able to go to work since Monday so that I could recuperate faster. As I was feeling a bit better, hubby asked me to go on a post-Valentine's Day movie date with him. It has been quite a while since we've watched a movie (in the theater) so I said yes. Plus I really, really am super excited with the sequel of Ghost Rider so even though I was still coughing occasionally, I wasn't able to pass up on this. I don't like to elaborate too much on the film as I might get carried away and give out spoilers... suffice it to say that you really should watch this if you liked the first movie. I just love Nicolas Cage... next movie to look forward to would be National Treasure 3:
Since I have been in bed almost the whole time that I was home these past couple of days (my kids are with my mom at my parents' house so they wouldn't catch what I have) I was able to squeeze in reading a couple of books I have purchased a while back but has not gotten the chance to read. "Call After Midnight" and "Stolen" by Tess Gerritsen were the ones I couldn't put down once I started reading them so I got to finish them. Lately, I have been looking for more Tess Gerritsen books that my collection of Sandra Brown books may soon be matched by a new favorite author!
Also, since I had so much free time... I was able to research on how I could further stimulate my son's mind by giving him more educational activities at home. I was already talking to my husband and my mom about enrolling him at a nearby school but my mom said it might be too early for him. This article is also very helpful when contemplating on "school" choices for your kids. I haven't reached a final plan yet, but this summer, I would definitely be looking for an activity to expose Adam to "school environment" so I could gently ease him into it and avoid the "crying" when it's time for him to attend "real school" already.
Tomorrow, I'll be going back to work... back to papers and deadlines...
