Yesterday, I burned over 1,300 calories at the gym. So, I allowed myself to eat more than usual. lol.

Today, I will go to the grocery store and get a week's worth of food since we will be leaving for Australia next week. Yes, a week from today, we will on the plane to San Francisco and then Australia. I will go to the gym after I put the groceries away.

Yesterday, we finally saw the movie called Fighter and it was a fairly good movie. Not as good as the King's Speech and better than I Love You Philip Morris.

Today, I will be going to the gym soon because the cleaning people will be here around 8 AM. When I return from the gym, Mr. Handyman is coming back to fix an issue with the new faucet he replaced last week. The issue is the cold/hot water lines are reversed on the faucet.

I will also continue to search and apply for Federal government jobs and paint. I'm trying to keep busy.

Today, we are going to see The Fighter. We didn't go yesterday. After dim sum, we went back to Jake's house to chat and watch the Ravens football game. We left Jake around 2:30 PM. After we got home, I went to the gym and burned over 1,300 calories. I needed to do for all the "bad" food I ate this weekend.

Tonight, we are playing tennis so that will be the cardiovascular exercises for today.

Yesterday, we heard from our friends Michael and Rob that one of their dogs passed away around 5 AM. Not a good way to start the new year. They've had Pez for 10 years. Pez's sister Bailey along with Michael and Rob are going to miss him. So to keep them distracted, we met them for a movie. We saw I Love You Philip Morris. Ewan McGregor looked great in the movie. Unfortunately, I am not a fan of Jim Carrey and I believe he was just too over the top like all his movies. I can't believe that the movie is based on a true story.

Today, my spouse and I are meeting Jake (my spouse's friend) for Dim Sum at a restaurant in Silver Spring, Maryland. We'll have a great meal because this is one of the better dim sum restaurants in the area. My spouse wants to see The Fighter so we may go see the movie afterwards or maybe we'll see it tomorrow. I guess we'll play it by ear. I hope I can get my cardiovascular exercises in today (besides the walking).

Happy New Year to all my Spark Friends. I wish you the best for 2011!

My spouse and I spent New Year's Eve with the couple that we shared Christmas in Montreal. I cooked lunch/dinner. It was nice staying in and spending time at our house. We haven't done that with them in a long time. For their Christmas present, we gave them one of my paintings.

Here it is.

I believe they loved the painting. I hope so. I had a great time creating the painting. In turn, they gave us two Apple Nano "watches." The watches are very cool. We love it. Thank you, Michael and Rob.

Yesterday, I finished the painting I worked on for the last few days.

Here it is.

This painting will become part of a series. I will be painting smaller sizes next week.
