Movie Night

Posted by Scott at 11:59 PM

Good morning! Sorry things have been quiet this week. The service I use to buffer up updates throughout the day has been flakey recently. Hope it's stable now. 7:38am

Went to the Merrimack YMCA for a Step class and core strength class. Timothy was also going to come but was too tired from being out late last night at Kimball Farms. We had a nice evening at the annual company summer outing. I also stopped on the way back from the Y to give my Jetta a much needed car wash. 11:00am

Claire has gone to driver's ed this morning and is about to go back out for her time behind the wheel with the instructor. While out Michelle is taking Abby shopping for her friend's birthday. 11:28am

Timothy and I got the new printer all set up while Michelle played taxi mom for our girls. I also updated the iMacs and my tablet. While it's not a photo quality color printer, I'm still impressed with this little printer / scanner / copier. I had to explain to Timothy what a fax is. It reminds me of when I had to tell one of the children what ‘film’ is. 3:06pm

Just wrapped up Saturday evening Mass. Claire and Timothy were the altar servers. Stopping to take Abby to a friend's house for a sleepover. 5:27pm

Netflix linkAfter we dropped off Abby, the rest of us went to Mi Jalisco for dinner. Claire even had a birthday dessert. Now we're trying to setup the boys to watch “Diary of a Wimpy Kid 2” and I'm hoping to watch the classic “Vertigo” with Claire. 6:52pm

Michelle took her last chemo for a week. I'm always happy when she gets that week off to let her healthy cells recover. Since “Diary” is a shorter movie, the boys finished earlier and Michelle got them to bed. Claire and I took a while to figure out what had happened with “Vertigo”. Even though it's over two hours, we thought the ending was rather abrupt. Still… “Vertigo” recently displaced “Citizen Kane” as the critics' Greatest Film of All Time. Good night all! 9:52pm

he said to his mother, ‘Woman, behold, your son.’
Then he said to the disciple,
‘Behold, your mother.’ ”
