Under the weather-ness continues.

My dad has been in the hospital for the past few days from a fall. Nothing is broken but he has some mysterious hip pain when he sets his foot on the floor. I hadn't been worried before, but going on 48 hours... I think the plan is to release him in to a rehab unit. He broke one ankle summer 2014 (the same summer i sprained two of mine). I'm not sure it is reassuring to know how being a klutz runs in my genes.

I read Phoenix in Shadow yesterday as a relaxing entertainment. In the evening, Christine wanted a "feel good movie." I don't tend to want feel good movies that make you feel too distressed before the feel good happens -- i'm sorry, but watching someone wrestle with whether their children are going to die is not entertaining even if i know the crochety doctor will find the solution in the end (per trailer for Extraordinary Measures). We watched RED 2 with Helen Mirren instead. (And she does her shooting barefoot in one scene, and her toes curl as she pulls the trigger.)
