It's Friday, and another week is in the books.  I've got today off to drink beer and watch the tournament all day.  GO BLUE!

FIFTEEN more days until I will have my first beer since New Year's Eve. I made a resolution to not have beer for three months, and I have stuck to it, but it's been killing me. I do feel a little healthier, but I love beer, Sam Adams in particular.

Wine and Captain Morgan spiced rum. Captain and Coke is my second favorite drink behind a good long island iced tea, so I definitely enjoy it. Also, I like wine, but not as much as I have been drinking it. Wine is more like a drink to have with a nice dinner, not casually drink. I don't have liquor at my house because I just don't feel the need for it and the only time I really drink it is as house parties or when I go to bars. I have a case of Sam Adams Octoberfest that I'm dying to break out in two weeks.

Definitely not thirty pounds. I'm about 200 right now and would like to get to 190 and stay there, but it's more about what I eat. I exercise every week (usually three or four days), but I just can't get below 200, so it's obvious that I need to amend my diet.

Haven't seen the movie and have no plans to but I see it now that you've mentioned it. Well, the grandpa part anyway. Recognize him from trailers for the movie. That's the jackass guy right? Knoxville?

I got it on PPV for $2.95 and only have made it through about 30 min. so far.  Has some funny parts, but the involvement of the kid is a little creepy to me.  Especially the stripper scene.  Eww.

Well, today started on a gloomy note as I had to had out some long overdue discipline in the Lewan thread, but I am over it now and have moved onto happier things like planning my weekend around basketball. 

My in-laws are taking the kids and keeping them overnight tonight, so the wife and I will probably have a nice dinner somewhere and then come home to do what normal married couples do - fire up the TV (or the Kindle, in the case of my wife) and do our respective things. 

On Saturday, there will be a fair amount of purging going on - there are apprximately 30 bags and boxes that are donation-ready sitting in the dining and living room. It is simply a matter of getting them to the Salvation Army. 

The overarching theme for me is this - the first weekend of the Tournament is always a great, great sports weekend, even better when your team is in it

a good purging brings. Get rid of some clutter around the house while helping out a worthy cause.

30 bags and boxes, though. Wow. Sounds like my wife. She started hitting garage sales and thrift shops when we started having kids. Pretty soon we had 6 strollers (seriously) for 3 kids. I think we had 5 high chairs, about 10 car seats. Toys upon toys upon toys. She seriously had a problem. If it was on clearance at Target or she saw it at a garage sale she'd buy it. Didn't really cost a lot of money but the stuff piled up. Kids clothes like you wouldn't believe. We have a 5 bedroom house and 2 of them were full of "stuff". Plus the basement and one of our barns. She'd watch those hoarder shows and almost cry. She was never that bad as the people on those shows though, and we finally got through it. Now we're clutter-free for almost 6 months.
