We got to go to a movie last night! What a treat. When hubby came home, we ate unromantic but yummy grilled cheese sandwiches, then my mom came over to watch the kids for us. I love leaving them with her because I don't have to worry at all about them. They love her and they always do great. Then after I finally got myself ready we took off. I treated myself to popcorn (yes, I gained my pound back because of it) and we watched Ocean's 13. I got a kick out of the show. I remembered watching Ocean's 11, but I have very little memory of watching Ocean's 12 since we watched it while I was pregnant with Seth and really sick. Hubby insists that I really did watch it but as he told parts of the story, there was no recognition in my brain. I guess I'll just have to rent it and watch it again.
After the movie we stopped at friend's house and watered the flowers then went to hubby's favorite coffee shop to get a treat for him. Latte in hand we drove home through the twilight, talking together. A quiet evening, but one we really needed, just to get away together. As we left we joked that we were almost strangers since so much energy and attention goes towards the kids rather than to each other. It's about to get worse because I am signed up to play flute in the pit orchestra for the civic theater play in July. I am so excited, I just about can't wait for rehearsals to begin. But it will mean I see hubby even less than now, since he offered to watch the kids for me. Still, having something outside of the house will be sooooooooo good for me. He knows it and has been very supportive of the idea. What a blessing. I am sure many blogs will involve this subject in the future so we'll leave it for then.
