I watched the last episode of The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel this morning. I was so in love with the show when it first came on and really liked the second and third season, as well, but it sort of lost me a bit in the last two seasons. Quality TV, yes, and excellent writing and acting, but I think it lost its edge and I’m not exactly sure why.
One thought I have is that I wanted to see Midge succeed and I was interested in how that success would impact her. Without giving too much away, the show fell short of its mark here even though it did give us a lot of glimpses into Midge’s future. I think there were plenty of good storylines that we didn’t get to see and that’s okay. It is no small feat to create characters who seemingly have a ton of possible ways to go and do and be and such.
I’m glad I stuck with it, though, and look forward to watching the first season again someday.
The last day of school went off without a hitch. A couple of the kids were acting out, of course, but for the most part, I think we got to have some great closure. I will certainly miss the majority of them a lot and send out positive hopes and vibes and such to all of them. Pictures were taken and it will be fun to look at them from time to time.
The simple fact that I get to keep my same classroom for another year is feeling so nice. I’m excited to make it more and more comfortable for the kids and for myself. I’m not much of a decorator, but I think I can pull it off. Plans are in motion, as they say.
Had a lovely day yesterday and an excellent visit with Michael, Tracey, Teresa x2, Johnny, and Eli last night. So good for the soul. I’ve been reeling a bit, missing my wife, and it’s nice to know I have people to lean on. Got another fun afternoon and evening planned today, so cutting this short for a Sunday. I’m sure I’ll have more to write about in the next few days.
I wonder what Mary and Marcy are up to right now?
See you tomorrow.
The Art Institute in Chicago is one of my favorite places. I am due for a visit.
