Summer VacationPosted: July 2, 2008 Filed under: family, movies | Tags: movies, Stardust, Summer Vacation Leave a comment
It’s July already. We have been whirlwind busy, and for the most part things are good, though the bickering and tattling presents some challenges.
I had some trouble sleeping last night. Not sure why. Last night I watched Stardust, which has a great cast, including Robert DeNiro, Michelle Pfeiffer and Claire Daines. I really liked it. Reminded me a bit of The Princess Bride, but more in a fantasy vein with a pinch of Harry Potter, and also a bit of the same flavor as the ABC show Pushing Daisies. Overall, I found it entertaining.
Then I read for a bit, and couldn’t put Away down. I have about 60 pages to go. I turned out the light around 12:30, Manfrengensen already snoozing beside me, and then I tossed and turned for another hour. I feel a bit grumpy today, and I need to be on my game. The boys are both having friends over for playdates this afternoon.
