Girls Night Out

It's been a long time since I have been to the movies.

For the past 7 months I have not been able to go to the movies with my youngest daughter. I have been busy helping my oldest daughter with her children, and it was just impossible for me to get away for an afternoon or an evening.

Now I don't have to help as much with the grand babies, which I am really enjoying. I love them, but I sort of feel like I am getting my life back.

Today Julia came home from school and said she wanted to do something different tonight. She wanted to go some where. It was dinner time, and I was looking forward to staying home after having a busy day. Then she suggested a movie, and I was all for it, even though it was a school night. She called her friend, Maggie, and off we went to see the movie, P.S. I Love You.

What a sweet, but sad movie. Maggie and Julia (being the heartbroken teenagers they are) were crying so hard during the movie they made me cry and I didn't have anything to really cry about! I guess if I thought about it long and hard I could start bawling, but that's a whole nother story!

Before going in to see the movie we saw a small sign that said it had brief nudity. I was a little reluctant, but how much nudity could there be in a PG 13 movie? All we saw was a man's rear end, and the girls shouted out "There's the brief nudity!" The movie audience laughed.

A trip to Starbucks topped the night off perfectly! Julia had a great idea. I had forgotten how much fun it was to go to the movies. I am beginning to know what it feels like to be able to go somewhere whenever I want without little kids tagging along. Shhh. Don't tell the grandkids, but I'm enjoying this!


  1. Hi Amanda !!!
    WOW !!! You're new header is GREAT !!! I'm so jealous -- I haven't figured it out yet OR how to separate pictures with some writing, then another picture, then some more writing -- I need a "Blogger for Dummies " class!!
    Anyhow, the Girl's Night Out with your younger daughter sounds so nice! (I'd like to see that movie, but I'm the only girl here at my house -- all guys ) -- so , for my Girl's Night Out, I have to wait until my sister and her 2 girls are available (girls are 13 and 11) -- they live about an hour and 20 minutes from me -- so it all has to be planned out -- nothing spontaneous .

    ...... and, glad to hear you had a nice Christmas and New Year! Enjoy your new little bit of freedom !!!

  2. Can't all we women cry if we really try? LOL!! I've got to see that movie I guess. We haven't been to the show in years.
