The deck is finished and it looks great. He had to do some rework on the steps because it got to steep from the last step to the ground on the one side. So it took an extra day but it is great now. We bought a patio set today at Wal-Mart and Scott is in the midst of putting that together.
Mom and Dad left for Hawaii today. Mom won the trip for selling so much for Hunter Douglas. I so wish we could go. They are going to the island that they filmed Jurassic Park at and the word is there is absolutely nothing to do. Probably good for Mom but not sure that’s where I want to go for Hawaii. At this point though, I would love to go and enjoy the quiet. There’s just no way I could leave the kids and go. And there’s no way I would want to go on a 12 hour plane ride with them. No thanks. So maybe one day.
I watched Pride & Prejudice last night. Finally. It was a copy on my machine and I hooked my laptop up to the tv. It worked out pretty good. I went out and bought the DVD today because I don’t think the ending of the movie is the same for the one in the stores. I’m very interested to see it. I loved the movie. It was even better than I remember the book being. At times it was a little boring and a little hard to understand them with their accents and the tough grammer/language but it was one of those things where I want to watch it again to get all the meaning out of what they are trying to say. I did think Darcy’s performance was a little unfeeling. It was hard to read if he was really into Lizzie or not at times. And even when he professed his love, it was a little lackluster. But I can’t help but love a love story. Especially when there’s balls involved.
