Movie Monday

Well, we made it through the first week of Craig's post-op recovery. As I mentioned in my last post, he is doing great - much better than expected - and avoided a CFS crash completely. A miracle!

He is still mostly immobile, though he can get around the house a bit on crutches. So, we have been watching a lot of TV, but not as much as after his last two surgeries. Since he's feeling so much better, he's been mostly playing video games with his brother and some friends who've visited.

So, we watched just one movie last week, a classic 80's comedy, Animal House. Believe it or not, I was a teenager in the early 80's and had never seen it! It was, of course, exactly as expected - goofy, sometimes raunchy, comedy. Lots of fun watching John Belushi's antics and laughing at the craziness of the Delta house. Funny thing is that there was a fraternity on my college campus EXACTLY like the fraternity in Animal House. They used to throw furniture and TVs out of the third floor windows for fun (and that was one of the milder things they did). So that was a fun distraction.

Mid-week, a DVD we'd requested from the library finally came in, the fourth season of In Plain Sight. Since there's only one copy of each season in our entire state library system, and there is usually a waiting list, we are trying to watch the entire season in one week! Fortunately, the kids like this great series about the Witness Protection Program as much as my husband and I do, so we've been flying through the episodes. The show has interesting cases each episode but also a great sense of humor. We've set everything else aside for the time being, though my husband is very eager to start watching one of his Father's Day gifts, season one of The Game of Thrones!

Oh, and Ken and I did have one hour to ourselves when the boys had friends over this weekend, so we watched the pilot of Graceland, a new TV show about a house in southern California filled with undercover government agents from FBI, DEA, and Customs - seems like a great show so far!

Have you seen any good movies or TV shows lately?
