Marilyn Home Sick -- Saw Some Movies on TV... 
sister marilyn
Marilyn was up most of the night -- and I ended up awake all night. We started watching the 2015 film "Pixels," which was just as bad as everyone said, by the way. Don't be fooled by the fact that Adam Sandler and Kevin James are in this movie. (I did really love Michelle Monaghan, however!) Kevin is especially unbelievable as the President (!!!). Just pretty awful, in spite of the fun many of us remember from the arcade game days.

I finally went to bed at 6:00 a.m. -- she fast already asleep by then, thankfully! Obviously she stayed home from work sick today. It was a miracle she went in yesterday...

Sister Sue phoned because her friend Larry was going to be in town and wanted to have lunch with the three of us. I was just too tired, Marilyn was down sick and Sue decided to tell him 'no' until we go all go...

Later in the day (we did a LOT of sleeping today), Marilyn and I watched the brand new 2016 film, "I.T.," with Pierce Brosnan. It's getting bad reviews, and I understand that. But Pierce still got good reviews -- because who doesn't like Pierce Brosnan? (grin)

Sister Sue very kindly took me shopping at Freddies this evening, so I could get POP (Marilyn was out and going crazy), and several other necessary items. (I forgot MEDICINE -- I am an idiot!!!)

We watched a bunch of Star Trek: Next Gen on TV today...

Tonight we watched the new ABC series "Designated Survivor," starring Kiefer Sutherland -- which we've really been looking forward to seeing! It was EXCELLENT!!! Just as good as we'd been hoping!

Time for a quick nap before the midnight hour of SimCity BuildIt.

Good night!

I had a friend who went to see Pixels and walked out of the theater halfway through, he couldn't sit through the rest.

I haven't heard of I.T. but I love Pierce Brosnan!

Darn it, I forgot Designated Survivor started last night. Maybe I can find it on the on-demand deal. Since I'm house sitting my schedule is all messed up. Glad to hear it's good!

Aimee, you MUST see "Designated Survivor" if you haven't yet! One of the best shows on TV, I think. Really enjoyable...

I hope you are both feeling better soon!
