thank you netflix "watch it now"

With sick kids and tired parents and all our regular Netflix queue DVDs in transit, we took full advantage of Netflix's nifty "watch it now" feature over the past few days.

Last night we watched I Capture the Castle and The Adventures of Milo and Otis. I highly recommend both.

Today my first disk of the next-to-last season of McLeod's Daughters arrived in the mailbox and I spent the heat of the day watching ALL FOUR episodes in a row. There's just something about that show that grabs hold and doesn't turn loose.

I think I might watch The English Patient tonight.

So far, so good. Mom is not yet sick!

Sounds like you've got a good plan, hope you stay well.

Thanks, Arlene. I'm still in the clear, and everyone else is quickly moving through the process of the bug.

As usual, son's vulnerable area is sinus congestion, and daughter's is cough. Except for missing today's Pony Club Summer Solstice party, we're handling this summer bug pretty well.
