Weekend & Movies

Standard

happystpatricksday

Although I am unemployed, just like any other employed person, I try to make the most out of my weekends. I don’t search for or apply to any jobs, unless I find an opportunity that just can’t wait until Monday for me to apply. Hopefully sooner rather than later, I’ll find myself back at work and not having as much free time. Being unemployed is pretty stressful, so I’m trying to enjoy the time off while I can. With that being said, this weekend was pretty eventful compared to the last couple of weekends.

My husband works a crazy amount of hours. Lately he’s been working 88 hours a week! The only thing that helps us through it is that he works from home, so we do get to spend some time together. With that being said, he has very little time to do anything and by the time the weekends roll around he just wants to relax and sleep in. I completely understand, but at the same time I’m home all the time so I just want to get out and do stuff. The last couple of weekends we haven’t done much. We usually sleep in and stay in and watch the shows we have DVR’d from the week, Netflix, or rent a movie. On the weekends we also usually order out to give me a break from cooking all week long.  This weekend we actually went out, Saturday AND Sunday! My husband said he had forgotten what it feels like to be out in the sun! Lol! (Funny but sad at the same time.) Saturday we did a little shopping during the day and at night we saw a movie on Netflix called Compliance, which is inspired by true events. That movie just made me upset! The things that poor girl experiences is crazy!!! If you haven’t seen it, I would recommend it. Here’s the trailer for it.

I guess I had the luck of the Irish this weekend, because I received an email for a free 3D screening for the new movie The Croods that comes out in theatres March 22nd. 10am on a Sunday morning is really hard to do lol, but it was a pretty good offer we didn’t want to pass up. We are SO glad we went! Here is my review:

This movie was great! It had action, comedy, drama, and even a little bit of romance. Hilarious for the kiddies, but also great for adults. The ultimate moral of the story line was inspiring, especially for a kid’s movie. The 3D aspect was also very cool! A must see for audiences of all ages!

Other than that, some grocery shopping and of course the new episode of Walking Dead tonight, and that pretty much sums up my weekend. Hope everyone had a great weekend, and I hope you all have great a week. Hopefully my luck continues and my interview on Wednesday goes well. 🙂
