I'm doing a little bit better today, though still not in great shape. More importantly, Jamie went back to school today and is even doing a little homework now.
Despite all the sick days, we didn't watch many movies. Jamie read 5 books last week (!) and he and I watched some TV shows On Demand during the day and on DVD with the rest of the family (mainly Bones, The Big Bang Theory, NCIS, NCIS-LA, and some episodes of Psych). We did fit in one movie, on Thursday night since the kids were off school the next day:
- We finished off our X-Men trilogy that some friends lent us with X-Men: The Last Stand. It was pretty good, like the other X-Men movies - lots of action and battle scenes in this one but also some interesting plot elements, where a "cure" has been developed for people with mutations (like the X-Men). The politics of these movies have been interesting because you can see similar trends and controversies in some of our own current politics, mainly in the fear of people with differences. All in all, it's been a good series, and the boys really enjoyed it.
