I was pretty pleased with how this went last week.  I can't seem to find a way to do rambly lowkey domestic posts on FB in a way that works for me, and it seems as if this might be a good fit.  I think I'd like to reacquaint myself with how to include photos and videos before starting to post here and then just share it to FB.

What I'm doing this week:

Reading: Hawkeye vs. Deadpool.  I absolutely loved it.  It made me laugh out loud at least a dozen times.  

Listening to: Sweet and The Ramones.  A little Jim Croce.  

Watching:  Avengers Age of Ultron (which I loved, if possible, even more than the first.  I most especially loved the hints of team history we got (it really did feel as if they'd been fighting and snarking together since the last movie), and the luxury of having more time to get to know the characters (instead of just being busy introducing them and then tossing them into a fight), and getting to watch them having downtime together -- first right before the main conflict of the film began, and then during an interlude when they retreated a bit in order to regroup)

Doing: Played in our RPG this weekend (very pleased about how I've finally settled into my character, and into the Fate system)

Eating/Cooking:  leftovers.  Best part about having company all weekend!  Well, no, the company of friends was the best part.  But starting the week with a fridge full of leftovers is a close second.  :)

Something that went particularly well this week:  Our Free Comic Book Day after-party.  People sat all over the place  -- reading comics, talking about comics, exchanging recommendations, talking about the Avengers, eating and laughing and just hanging out.  It was exactly what I'd hoped it would be.

Something I struggled with: Ugh.  The traffic this morning.  I sat in traffic, then got off the highway to try to get around it, drove around getting further and further lost for 20 minutes, found my way back to the highway in order to get right back into the traffic.  Wound up being half an hour late for work.  

Something I'm looking forward to: a quiet homeschooling week.  Maybe a little gardening.
