- Colorado was lots of fun.  We mostly just did the visit family thing, and I really like all of J's siblings.

- It is nice to be at home and have time off.  Of course, the number of things that I have put off waiting for free time over the last five months have now all jumped up and attacked me.  My to do list is beyond long, and includes things like maybe putting art up on the walls of the apartment we've lived in for 6 months.

- I am once again pursuing my goal of seeing as many movies (nominated for Oscar's) as possible.  Of course the Oscar nominations haven't come out yet - but the Golden Globes and SAG award noms are usually a good guide, so that's where I started.

- In that spirit I've seen seven movies in the theatre this week, all but one at matinee prices.  Ah, unemployment.  The list is:  Nine, A Single Man, The Young Victoria, It's Complicated, Sherlock Holmes, Precious, and Fantastic Mr. Fox.  My favorite of them is A Single Man, but you certainly have to be willing to be depressed for a bit to see it.

- We got home last Tuesday evening, and we leave Thursday morning for WI.  Yay for the crazy travel schedule and lots of family.  I am very excited to finally meet the twins!
