Poem for Wednesday

Collapse )

Adam graduated from the Bar-Bat Mitzvah program at Hebrew school late Tuesday afternoon, so I ran around doing chores earlier in the day. I had to do very important things like go to Best Buy so I could get Bottle Shock on its first day of release -- hey, I had $5 in rewards bucks, and I discovered that they had Love Actually for $4.99, which was obviously a sign from above that I need more Alan Rickman in my life. I also stopped at Blockbuster because I had a coupon for a free rental that had to be used by tomorrow. And I stopped in a gift shop that's going out of business in the same shopping center as Blockbuster, and grabbed some grocery necessities, and ate a quick late lunch, and took Adam to the last Hebrew school class before the commencement ceremony which we attended with my parents.

My parents took us all out to California Pizza Kitchen to celebrate Adam's graduation -- he starts Bar Mitzvah tutoring on Wednesday, so it isn't like he's actually finished, and the Judaic Studies program on weekends continues through the spring. In the evening we watched Wall-E, which the kids had refused to see in the theater on the grounds that it was a Disney movie, but then Adam got to watch at a school party and decided that we should all see. I knew it was supposed to be good, but I was completely unspoiled for most of its surprises, so I was surprised in turn at how much I loved it! Collapse )

Sears is finally supposed to fix our dryer tomorrow. Be prepared for much ranting and possible homicide charges if this does not occur.
