Weekending with Amanda:
Friday was busy with getting things done, dinner at Bill’s Family Restaurant, being recognized as “regulars” which we are definitely becoming. Aunt Teppie came over and we watched Breakfast Club. Have you seen it? Maybe not for years. I was surprised at how much I remembered. At how coarse the language was. How angry the teens were with so much of life. I felt like it was a more honest representation of high school than the films now, and as an adult, I realized that yes, I had identified in some small way with each of the characters. No wonder I watched it over and over as a teen.
We laughed when we realized that it was so popular when I was in high school because it had only been made eight years before. Not a new film, but not old either.
Saturday I took Kate shopping with me, The Teenager went to a Brit Nicole concert with a friend, and Amante helped my dad fix a faucet on the back of my parent’s house that’s been leaking for some time. These projects always take longer than planned, but chili dogs for dinner made up for the long day.
How about you?
