Since the girls were sicky and the boys were avoiding our germs, we used the time to bond.
Matty was gone for his visitation this weekend. Kevin and Austin decided to take in a movie and do a little shopping. It ended up being a lot of shopping. They went to hook up the air conditioner and wound up having to replace some things before they could get it to work. Then Lauren and I ran out of Nyquil, Dayquil and kleenexes so they fetched those for us. Finally, they went to Blockbuster and picked us up some girly movies. After they dropped those off they booked it to town and had dinner and watched Ironman. Good ol’ male bonding.
I made a list of 5 movies that I felt Lauren HAD to see in her lifetime and Kevin was able to find 4 of them. So yesterday afternoon we watched Moulin Rouge and The Color Purple. I still can’t believe Lauren hadn’t seen The Color Purple or had to read the book in school. We had it done by the time we reached high school. She said that some classes did it this year but hers wasn’t one of them. For shame!
After Rachel went to bed, Lauren and I watched Girl, Interrupted. I LOVE that movie. I can understand why she hadn’t watched that one yet but at almost 16 I figured she was ready for it. Most of the stuff in the move she had dealt with in real life anyway. I didn’t realize how long it was but she really liked it.
For today we have Circle of Friends and I’m sure we will rewatch some of the others. Plus I know I have some flicks around this house she probably hasn’t seen yet. Hopefully tomorrow we can get back to our normal routine. I hate this being at home junk!
