I have friends that love musicals…you know, the real kitchy stuff like hairspray, enchanted, or high school musical. I have heard more than once the phrase…”I wish life were a musical – you could break into song whenever you wanted”…unfortunately I do not share that sentiment...perhaps because I can't carry a tune and I would feel terribly left out.
This week I watched a foreign film…and as everyone knows, the only way to watch a foreign film is to watch it in the appropriate language (that being the foreign one) with English subtitles. Although, as a mom this is very difficult to do…it is a rare occurrence to be able to sit and watch/read a show without having to finish up the folding or some other homerly task at the same time.
Of course my most recommended foreign films are “Life is Beautiful”, and “The Tiger and the Snow”(my personal favourite –it’s a beautiful love story).
Well, the film I watched this week (yes it took me all week just to find the time to get to the end of it) I am uncertain if I even liked…it was a little sad…and yet because of the subtitles, I think it still had a sort of charm about it...I find that you are able to catch little beauties or subtle nuances in subtitled films that would regularly go right over you. So I have decided that I wish life was subtitled.
This week every thing seemed to be going somewhere in the proverbial hand basket, (if you know what I mean). And perhaps had I had this week in subtitles it all would have been a little more charming or made a little bit more sense.
Chaim has been throwing up a lot this week…I have no idea what is going on…he is not sick or have the flu or anything, the poor little guy…this has probably been the worst stint of it yet…I hope we can figure this out soon. I have been an absolute basketcase about it--it totally stresses me out…and in between cleaning up vomit, and doing laundry and trying to get something into his little stomach, this week has slipped by with very little adventure or charm and a whole lot of mess and stress.
We have spent the weekend trying to regroup and re-organize. I hope this week is a little better.
