Friday afternoon, hubby went to spend the night out of town to go hunting. The sweet husband he is, he arranged for his Mom to come get the kids to spend the night at her house so I could have some “me” time. I didn’t really do anything special with my “me” time, just enjoyed it. I made a trip to Sam’s (SOOOOOO much easier without kids coming along) and browsed around Hobby Lobby for a little while. After getting back home, I watched a movie (Eat, Pray, Love), spent a little time on the computer, and enjoyed a glass (or two) of wine. Here’s my “me” shot from Friday night. I do not look at all pretty, but I’m relaxed and enjoying an evening by myself.
Unfortunately, while I was enjoying an evening by myself, I was also getting sick. I’ve talked about Sadie being sick with this neverending cough, and the older two (mostly Claire) have had runny noses and coughs; so I was bound to get it. Mix in a little sinus pressure, and my Saturday was mostly spent in the bed feeling terrible. So this picture is very representative of our Saturday.
Not every Sunday night, but it seems like a lot of them lately, we like to have family movie night. We pop some popcorn (or “pah – coh” as Sadie calls it) and find a movie on one of the On Demand channels. Last night we chose Alice in Wonderland.
I’ve been resisting getting this movie for a while. It seems like I heard somewhere that parts of it were creepy, and I didn’t know how well the kids would handle it. But they’ve been begging to see it, and we didn’t really find anything else we wanted to watch, so we watched it. It was definitely very strange, and parts of it were a little creepy. During the part in which Alice is running from the big bear-like creature just a short while after she arrives in “Underland”, Sadie was pointing to the TV saying “Wook, Momma, big monsta!” But she seemed fine, not too scared. We all ended up really enjoying the movie, especially the futterwacken dancing:
Hope you enjoyed it as much as we did (we had to rewind a few times to see it again and again!)!
Well, Sadie and I are off to the pediatrician for a follow-up and then to the grocery store. Have a great day!
