Jamie started college last week and Craig started high school, so I finally had the quiet solitude I've been desperately waiting for...and I was sick all week! I went into a bad crash last Tuesday that lasted all week - no idea why, though some of us locally have been wondering whether it's our rotten weather. So instead of writing and catching up like I'd planned, I was in bed reading. It was so bad last week, with continued severe aches in my legs into the weekend, that I was starting to think I had Lyme again (or still). Then we had houseguests all weekend!
But I was better yesterday and today and have my fingers crossed that it was just your basic unexplained, random CFS crash. We will see.
Anyway, it's been really busy around here, but we did squeeze in a couple of older movies the past two weeks:
- We watched Poltergeist with the kids before Jamie went off to college. They loved the classic ghost story - it really held up despite its age. And though Ken and I both saw it back in the 80's, we enjoyed watching it again...and seeing how young Craig T. Nelson was! Lots of spooky, heart-pounding suspense. As Carol Ann famously says in the movie, "They're heeere!"
- This weekend, with my Dad and his wife visiting and Jamie home from school, we watched Men in Black II. Like the first movie, it was just a fun bit of escapism - silly alien plots, lots of action, and plenty of laughs with Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones.
