Mom was pretty cranky today, so in an effort to pacify and play nice, I spent the evening in the living room with them instead of in my room. I picked a movie off my Netflix queue, Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs, and we watched it. Or I watched it, Dad slept through the whole thing, and Mom slept through a good chunk of the middle. That's not really a comment on the quality of the movie. Dad's got pneumonia right now, so he spends a lot of most evenings sleeping in the chair. And Mom falls asleep in front of any movie that isn't overtly Christian or produced by the Hallmark channel.
Other than Harry's Law, there are no TV shows that we both enjoy. And I've pretty much exhausted my supply of Instant Netflix movies in the Family category. So if anyone has any suggestions, that would be great. They don't have to be animated, and they don't have to be kiddish. They just need to be low on cursing and adult material. And for my sanity if they could be low on the religious references and cheese factor, that would be good, too.
Even though Mom was snitty today (she is totally freaking out about all the ice outside our front door and getting the cars and driveway cleared out, even though we have no where to go and no way to get there, since the roads are just as bad), I had a pretty good day. I read a book I enjoyed by a new-to-me author. If Dad listened to Rush Limbaugh I never caught him at it. And I, surprisingly, got a good night's sleep last night after my 3 hour nap. I think I'm almost caught up. Or as caught up as I ever get.
So that was my day. How was yours?
