The Lost Weekend

This evening we watched Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs. Mom has signed us up for Netflix and the first two movies to arrive were that and The Tale of Desperaux. I tried to queue up the movie earlier in the day but Alice turned the TV off and announced “we’re not watching that”.

Other than that it’s been kind of a lost weekend. Everything has passed in a blur of laziness. I have been waking up at 9:30 or 10:00 and still not before Charles and sometimes Alice. One morning Charles announced that he was just going to lay in bed all day but he did eventually exit his resting place. What we all did after that I can’t recall. But I know he was on the couch when we finally, late in the evening, watched the movie.

At one point in the movie near the end the main character is presumed dead. Alice broke down in to the tears and it took me a bit to figure out what she was sad about. But she managed stick it out until (surprise!) it turned out he had survived.
