Here are five ways to have fun this weekend.
1. The big movies opening this week are Marvel Studios latest sure-to-be-hit "Thor: Ragnarok" (rated PG-13) in which the Norse god and Avenger must fight for survival and race against time to prevent the all-powerful Hela from destroying his home and the Asgardian civilization; the R-rated comedy and first holiday movie of the season "A Bad Moms Christmas," follows three under-appreciated and over-burdened moms as they rebel against the challenges and expectations of the holidays; and director Richard Linklater's latest comedic drama "Last Flag Flying" starring Steve Carrell as a former Navy Corpsman who reunites with his old Vietnam War buddies (Laurence Fishburne and Bryan Cranston) to bury his son, a young Marine killed in the Iraq War.
2. Daylight saving time ends Sunday morning at 2 a.m. CST, when time "falls back." Make a game out of finding and changing the clocks as well as smoke alarm batteries in your house.
3. If you haven't taken down the Halloween decorations, this is the weekend to do it. And then start decorating for Thanksgiving! You can have kids make turkeys using their hand prints, or collect leaves to make special projects. Get creative!
4. The MLB's World Series may be over but there's still plenty of sports to watch such as college football and round 8 of the NASCAR Playoffs this weekend at the Texas Motor Speedway. Check your TV listings for more information.
5. Monday is Job Action Day, which was started in 2008. For job-seekers, it's a time to step back from the daily job hunt to get fresh perspective, regroup and make a new plan of action. For those employed, it is a time to examine your careers goals.
