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!
