Have fun!

Movie help

Okay let's say that you have not been seeing movies much in the last 7 years unless they involve animation (which I love), and nothing stronger than what Sponge Bob does to Patrick. Let's also say that you used to love documentaries, and independent films (Trainspotting still disturbs my dreams *shudder) sci fi, and some drama.

With that in mind, and the knowledge that I now have a Netflix account, what movies should I add to my queue?

Hey incase I didn't say it here....

I have a butt load garage full of acrylic yarn that desperately wants a home other than my garage. Anyone want some?

Busy weekend, busy life
alpacaaahhhh
earthami

We had a birthday party this weekend for one of E's best friends from preschool. They get along wonderfully and we love his parents. We talked about maybe taking a vacation with them to CA. That would be a blast.

Oh and Saturday morning E decided he was going to ride a 2 wheeler, and he did. He still needs help starting, but by Sunday evening he was doing u-turns in the street, and able to turn the corner. Unfortunately the bike he has is too heavy for him and so he was borrowing the neighbor's old bike to learn. It looks like we need to get the smaller bike we took to my parent's house back so he can ride that until he is big enough for the other bike. (Likely next summer) There was one accident where his buddy S across the street was helping him get started but let go before E was balanced and so he fell on his knees. For about 30 minutes he swore he was NEVER going to ride that bike again. He got over it.

I also tried a new recipe for dinner last night. I wasn't sure if I was going to have friends over or not so picked something that would make plenty. Cilantro Rice with Chicken, from my All New Complete Cooking Light Cookbook. E ended up inviting 2 kids from the neighborhood to stay for dinner (without asking first) luckily my friends didn't come over and we had plenty. The older girl loved it and wanted a copy to take home with her. Since she loved it so much E ate it without any complaining at all, as did her little brother. I wish there was more I could do to help them. It is a single mom with 5 kids living with her parents. They don't have much money at all, so when the boy comes over to play I make sure he gets a snack and won't send them away at dinner time unless I just don't have enough money. He is the kid E had a sleep over here with earlier this month. J is a year older than E and in 1st grade, his sister is in 5th.

So the house just felt full the whole time this weekend.

Now I'm off to the vet because my oldest kitty is throwing up all the time right now and we want to make sure it isn't anything bad.

Oh and if anyone has ideas on activities for a Kindy "Fall Festival" party on Oct 31st. I'd love to hear them. I'm room mother for E's class. We have a half hour for the party.

Ah the quiet...
alpacaaahhhh
earthami

Ok I know I haven't been staying at home for long but I have come to love the quiet of my house when everyone else is gone. I can breath. I can think. I can be.

It has been nice to have F take the last 2 Fridays off to get somethings done around the house and to just hang out, but man 3 days of constant input and I am all the more thankful for this morning.

I used to want to sit the entire day if I took a day off work. I wanted to get things done, but really I just couldn't. I think this was my introvert coming out and insisting on having the space around me. Now that I have so much of it I can actually do thing during the quiet because I know I will get it again tomorrow, and the next day, and then I'll have some time with my guys and then I'll get the quiet again. I'll get to be me again. Too bad there is no pay for just being. ;)

Ah but on that front, later today I will be posting on my knitting blog about how I'm planning on making some extra money and bring the stash down to a manageable size. Plus you can voice you opinion on the thing I've made lately and if it is the worst looking thing EVAH, is the best thing or you know somewhere between the two extremes where most things actually reside.

BTW, and as a complete aside, why the hell doesn't LJ's spell checker understand that the word BLOG is spelled correctly?

Baa, Baa...

Ideas Request
alpacaaahhhh
earthami

Look at me, I don't post for weeks, or so it seems to me and here I can't shut up.

Anyway, I'm going to have about 3 weeks at home with E before he starts Kindy. What ideas do all you smart Mama's have for me to keep him busy. 

We will be going to the museum, and the zoo a few times, we have memberships to both. I'm thinking a trip to the Butterfly Pavillion will go over pretty well. E is already poo pooing the library because it is 'boring' we will still be going though. I think once he sees all the books they have he will change his mind. 

Any other ideas?

Thanks.
