Geoff is super excited about the fact that Wallace & Gromit are getting their first feature length film. It’s The Wallace & Gromit Movie: Curse Of The Wererabbit. The plot sounds an awful lot like the children’s story Bunnicula. In any case, we’ll make an effort to see it, since you can’t go wrong with Aardman films.
It’s been an odd week. Haven’t done much other than try to blog on the other blog, respond to the plethora of emails I’ve received, watch Blackadder, and catch up on sleep. We’re hoping to take a trip up to Peet’s today, we won’t walk, I need to take it easy still.
My mom is coming here on Tuesday, and staying until Sunday. She’s playing a bit of UPS, one of her suitcases is totally devoted to gifts people have been giving her to bring down here. I’m trying to figure out where I want her to sleep. With all of Elijah’s stuff in the spare bedroom, I may ask her if she’ll take the hide-a-bed. Much easier than trying to move his changing needs into our room. It should be a good visit, though we just saw each other 2 months ago, I miss talking to her face to face. Having family far away at this time has been both a blessing and a bummer. A blessing because we don’t feel overwhelmed with people while we’re trying to adjust to our life change. A bummer, because there are times when having someone around to help out would be great. It’ll be such a stress relief to have Diane here in April while Geoff is off in Rhode Island. I don’t think I could by that week without someone else here.
I started a new book last week, and I don’t know that I’ll get around to reading it. I seem to spend my free moments writing emails, or tidying the house. But I’m going to try. It’s called Happiness by Will Ferguson (yep him again). It’s a fiction book, which is a change of pace for me as I seemed to have gotten on to a non-fiction kick. I’m only 3 chapters into it, so I can’t really say what I think of it. But I haven’t returned the book, so that’s a good sign. I can be a little impatient with books if they don’t grab me within a few chapters. I have 2 other fiction books by my bedside, one I’ve started, and one I mean to. The one I started, Perelandra by C.S. Lewis, I’ve been pecking away at for well over 6 months. I’m having a hard time getting into it. It’s the second in a trilogy, and Geoff says the third book is amazing, so I want to make my way there.
Well, I had better get on. I want to send a BIG THANK YOU to everyone who posted about the baby on their blogs. It was very sweet, and meant a lot to me. Also for all the comments. (Mike- you need to learn to spell your nephew’s name! 🙂 )
I’m going to close with a quote from Chicken Run.
Babs: Morning, Ginger. Back from holiday?
Ginger: I wasn’t on holiday, Babs. I was in solitary confinement.
Babs: Oh, it’s nice to get a bit of time to yourself, isn’t it?
