There's a scene in the original (fabulous) version of the movie where Mary Haines' (Norma Shearer) mother is giving her marital advice. Mary has just found out her husband is having an affair with a perfume counter girl at a department store (the magnificent Joan Crawford). Her mother tells her to let it go. Pretend she knows nothing. "It's one of the few sacrifices spoiled women like us have to make." She tells her daughter that when women start feeling older they re-decorate the house. Men don't have sense enough to re-do their offices so instead they want to "see them selves in the eyes of a younger woman." The advice seems very dated now and I don't see how the tone of the movie will translate with out becoming incredibly bitchy & raunchy.
BUT, I think I will still watch it & see if I still feel the same. Maybe I can get Daddy & Husband to babysit tonight & QM & I can go watch it in town.....Yeah, and pigs may fly.
In other news, B.B. woke up at 6 this morning wanting birthday cake & his presents. I'm going to have a tough time getting him to wait until his dad wakes up! Maybe I can appease him with French Toast.
Bitsy has stopped sleeping in her crib. This is not good. She's nearly stopped sleeping all together. Co-sleeping has always worked well for me. I nurse my babies in bed & we all go right back to sleep. But Bitsy wants to sleep on your arm (which quickly falls asleep) and doesn't seem to be sleeping deeply. She cries in her sleep a lot (not night terrors or anything like that...just half waking up). When she naps now she wants to do it on the floor in the living room. This does not work well for me! I'm wearing thin from lack of sleep.
Oh, good news, someone is supposed to come look at Bob this morning! I hope they take him!! I really don't want him still running around while I'm trying to get rid of Aurora's pups.
