Another weekend update

On Friday night I went to see Pride and Prejudice at the Pioneer Theatre. It was pretty good although I took exception to the narration style. I guess that's what I get for being so familiar with the subject matter. It was good though and I would recommend it (even if the character of Elizabeth wasn't as sassy as I would have liked.) Mom, Dad, Jen, and John will be seeing it on Tuesday.
Grandma J. is still in the hospital and I haven't seen her since Wednesday. Dad went to see Grandma J. tonight. Her hip isn't healing as fast as anyone would like. Besides having a brief run of pneumonia, she now has a staph infection that seems to be resistant to many drugs. In order to see her you have to put a mask on and glove up. I guess this is to protect her and the visitor. Her legs are pretty swollen because she can't get up and walk around. She is basically confined to her room until the Staph infection is under control. Her biggest complaint is loneliness and boredom. (If anyone wants to call and cheer her up, she is in room T11.)
Mom and Dad went to see Grandma and Grandpa R on Friday night. Grandpa had a cataract removed and is seeing better. The surgery on his other eye is this week. Hopefully this will help with his falling down. According to Mom, he sleeps a lot these days and is very thin. Grandma is worried about him but is still strong as a ox herself.
After church on Sunday, Josh and Brooke came over for a great dinner. Brooke is feeling well and my nephew-to-be is growing. According to measurements, he weighs 14 oz and still has his head up by her ribcage. Jordan, Alison, and Isaac came over a little later. We all played a round of Times Up and Isaac was darling. He lay on the floor playing and talking to one and all. I got some pretty cute pictures of him.

Speaking of things only remotely related to Pride & Prejudice . . . Jordan and I just saw Nanny McPhee (which was pretty cute) and Collin Firth plays the dad. I've never seen him outside of Mr. Darcy's role, so that was pretty fun.

Hilary's been dropping hints about going to see the P&P play. Glad you got to go. Hope to run into you one of these days.
(have you read twilight yet?)

Collin Firth plays in The Importance of Being Earnest too, with Reese Witherspoon and that one guy on My Best Friend's Wedding (the cute and funny friend whose name I can't remember). He also plays the dad on that one show with Amanda Bines where the girl goes to England to meet her dad, who happens to be royalty of some sort. My sister-in-law, Christy is a HUGE Collin Firth fan. Just thought you'd like to know.
