#Microblog Monday: Mush Mind

Not sure what #MicroblogMondays is? Read the inaugural post which explains the idea and how you can participate too.  The newest #Microblog Monday Post is here.

We have had a LOT of snow days here.  Unfortunately, because of work situations, both Chewy and I have had to work from home too.  Which means that while we would like to say that the snow days have been times for educational and informational play time and quality time (and there has been that, don't get me wrong--there has been the many hours of reading and quiet play time, the few hours of the younger one out playing in the snow, while the teenager naps, board games and heart to hearts, etc.), a good portion of the last few days have been television/movie related.

We decided a few weeks ago that we, as science fiction geeks, had been re-miss.  We had earlier poorly introduced Willow to Star Wars.  Poorly meaning we had her watch it, her four year old self did not care too much and was not enthusiastically joyful enough and we stopped there.

So. We started with the old Star Wars trilogy.  She warmed slowly to it, but finally was interested.  And life was good.  BUT, we have Michael, who has to complete the cycle.  So, we also watched the next three movies (even Phantom Menace, a not as bad experience as it once was).  Now the children are obsessed with Star Wars (again).

We finished those movies in record time, so of course...what to watch today, the millionth snow day in a row...why, about five bajillion Gillgan's Islands! A new obsession has been born (again).

Of course I looked to see if there was a mash up of some type...

My brain is as mushy as the snow outside...please tell me normalcy (and school) will happen again.... school tomorrow...iiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiieeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee

So funny -- we also just did a Star Wars repeat over winter break. We did the original three. We don't have the new ones.

I wish they had them on iTunes.

TV/movie series get the best of our family! It's always so weird when the show is over... And then we find a new obsession and the cycle continues!
