Get a FREE Blog Makeover!

I am feeling so much better this morning, although still not 100%.  Now Charlie has it. He's staying home from school today.  Poor guy!

Yesterday, Mike had an early dismissal.  Normally,  I try to do something fun on those days, but that was not happening yesterday in my condition.  Instead, the 2 of us had "Movie Monday." When he was in Pre-School and in Kindergarten we used to have "Movie Monday" every Monday.....so this was kind of fun for both of us.  We snuggled up on the couch with a blanket, turned on the fireplace, and watched a movie while it rained outside.  Perfect!  

We watched the movie "August Rush" and it was EXCELLENT!  I had never heard of it, so I don't know if it won any awards, but if it didn't, it should have.  It stars Kerri Russell and Robin Williams as a bad guy.  It's rated PG, and we had to fast forward through one kissing scene....yuck....it also had a couple of bad words...so it may not be good for younger kids.  It has some "deep" story lines....the boy is born to unwed parents, given to the state for adoption, and is hoping his real parents find him.  Robin Williams plays a creepy guy who has a bunch of kids working for him.  All of this was over Mike's head.  For him, it was about a boy who could play great music and was searching for his parents. It will make you want to learn how to play an instrument....great music, very inspiring.  If you're looking for a good movie to watch, check it out.

Also, I wanted to let you know that Darcy at Graphically Designing is having a post-Mother's Day contest where she is giving away a FREE blog makeover!!!!!  If you're interested, go on over to her blog and check out the details.  You have to enter today or tomorrow, because the winner will be chosen Thursday. Good Luck!

So basically, I am in love with August Rush. I saw it when it was in theaters. It was excellent.
