Friday after we finished working we met up with my sister Chris, who also lived in Boise and went to lunch and shopping. Then we were going to go see Australia but it started at 8:10 pm and is a 3 hour movie. Chris decided that she didn't want to go that late so Mom came over and we went and rented some movies. Cherie, you'll be happy to know I finally watched "The Secret Life of Bees". It was really deep and made me cry. I don't know if I would like to be at a party crying - or at least trying to keep myself together - LOL.. I really loved the dignity of the women - oh to have such dignity. I really liked it and am glad I finally watched it.
Mom and I decided to go to "Australia" on Saturday on the early showing. When we left she wanted to stop by the eye doctor and then go to the movie. I was rushing a bit and almost got in a wreck. Yes, it was my fault that I hurried and didn't see a car as I was turning into a lane (I hate that and felt bad as they pounded their horn at me). That kind of set a bad aura around me for the remainder of the drive to the eye doctor and then to the movie.
I thought the movie started at 3:10 but when we walked in to the movie it was already going - it actually started at 2:50 so we missed the whole beginning. The dread continued to rise as we tried to find a seat in a small auditorium full of people. We saw this one isle where there was one seat at the beginning of the row and one at the end -so we went there and I scooted in front of 2 ladies to take the end seat and my Mom took the isle seat.
One of the ladies purse was in my seat and it took a while for me to get seated - while blocking the people in back of me as the movie was going. THEN...... My mother fell down in the isle of the theater - cracked her head on the arm of the seat - spilled her purse. I was cringing by this time.
I couldn't go help her without getting in up again - so the two ladies helped her and then they all change seats so Mom could sit by me. I was mortified, concerned for my Mom and her fall, getting the show time wrong, causing a commotion, almost getting in a wreck - I had a real hard time getting into the movie. Since we missed the first part - I was lost. I DID like it - but can't give a full report because I was having a really difficult time.
It comes out today on DVD and I'm going to rent it - and hopefully get the whole story without all the drama.
Oh and my Mom gave me a really nice curling iron - the real expensive ones from the beauty store in the mall. I love this particular curling iron and love having a new one!! Birthday's are fun - except the getting older part :D.
It is REALLY cute!! Thanks Scrappy Girl for thinking of me on my Birthday. I love homemade cards the best!
Tierra asked me what I do for Visiting Teaching. Here is my March kit I ordered. It's is CUTE! St. Patrick's LOVE with a Pinch Free pin.
What a long blog today. It was full of fun, and craziness - but that is what life is all about! We need to journal the good with the bad.
