The boys went to Grandma and Grandpa's last night. Noah was super hyper so I am very worried about how he did last night. I guess I'll find out when they get home some time this morning.
The reviews for the Indiana Jones movie were spot on. The first half, although a little weirder than previous ones, was still like an Indiana Jones movie. I can't say the same for the second half. People were right about the sci-fi thing. It was WAY OUT THERE. About the moment where the skull started controlling everything, it stopped feeling like an Indiana Jones movie. It was like they had this great idea for an Indiana Jones movie, but somewhere got lost when they were writing it and ended up with a big bunch of nothing. Now, in general, I am not usually very hard on films, but this thing really was pretty ridiculous. I want to go back and read other people's reviews now that I have seen it. Here's the deal, if you were not an Indiana Jones fan to begin with, DON'T go see this movie. If you were, you MAY want to just because it's Indiana Jones. As we were walking out, Steve summed it up, "I guess we will only OWN the first three" and I whole heartedly agreed.
In van news, they did end up re-doing the transmission. The manager said he couldn't tell if it was one of the pieces they replaced, or a piece that they didn't replace the first time around. I didn't care as long as the warranty covered it. When the boys and I were running errands in the morning in the Blazer (Steve's man-truck) the windshield wipers stopped working in the middle of that rain storm. So I pulled over and begged him to be done with van so we could drive a car that was safe. He said to come pick it up. When I got there, I told him that I would be leaving the Blazer there until we could pick it up later. He asked what was wrong with it and I had mentioned the wipers and that I really didn't know what else. He offered to pull it in and assess it and fix the wipers for no charge as a courtesy for the van problem. When we picked it up last night, there was a assessment in the truck as well as a paper stating that they replaced the circuit board for free. Now, when it was raining when Steve left for work this morning, I know he will be safe. We will talk more about whether we will actually fix the other stuff. This truck cracks me up. I think it is the kind of vehicle that we will just keep on running until the bumpers fail off and Noah can learn to drive in it (in about 9 years). Thank you Matt and Jenny.
No plans today. It looks like the rain is done now so we will just play it by ear. I have no idea when the boys will be home so I think I'll go take a leisurely shower without refereeing fights from the bathroom, as is the course on normal days.
