little review

Poem for Tuesday

I was flattened for a while by a migraine so have very little to report from my Monday. Did some more organizing of books -- husband decided we had to have the 16-volume Golden Book Encyclopedia when he found a complete set for $12 at the Claude Moore Farm fundraising sale over the weekend -- and folded laundry while watching Miss Potter, which Showtime has On Demand; I'd only seen it on airplanes previously, so it was nice to see on a decent-sized screen. I don't always love Renee Zellwegger, but she's terrific in that role and Ewan McGregor is adorable as Norman Warne. My parents stopped by with dessert on their way home from a weekend in New York, but I was feeling too blah to eat any of it.

Adam was accidentally bonked over the head by a fat tree branch by his best friend, so he has a big bruise on his forehead and across an eyebrow (and is worried the friend friend will be grounded as then they won't be able to make origami paper airplanes together tomorrow). Meanwhile Daniel is on a crazy schedule, because the high school assessments are this week and most freshmen and sophomores don't have to be at school until late morning, but the magnet program is having long review and teaching sessions in the morning. And Adam has the orthodontist Tuesday afternoon for new x-rays and imprints so we can figure out exactly what needs to be done to straighten the rest of his teeth. Sigh.
