Spring Break!

Gotta love Spring Break.  I had the kids home all week, and we had a great time!  We are adding a new feature to this week's blog... movie reviews!  Yes, I seem to have spent far too much time at the theater this week.

*** How To Train Your Dragon: a touching story about a young misfit boy living in the Viking world and trying to please his father.  Great animation.  Jake says, "It's a lot like Avatar."  While I agree that people were riding flying dragons in both films, I'm not sure I can fully agree with "Siskel" in this case.

** Diary of a Wimpy Kid: cute story about a sixth grader who's not quite ready for prime time, i.e. middle school.  Both kids approved, but both agreed the book was better.  My kids just love those books.

* Alvin and the Chipmunks, the Squeakquel.  It gets a star because it was on pay-per-view so I saved on movie tickets and snacks!  It's all good, baby.

But, most importantly, Spring Break brought me another kind of break.  I have had far less pain this week... week one on my new injectable arthritis medication.  I can hardly believe it could act this quickly, but I'll take the placebo effect, too.  :)

Happy Spring!
