Movie Night


There will come a time when Friday night will not mean movie night. There will be no dragging out of the blow up mattress so we can sleep in the living room, no careful lining up of tiny cups full of skittles, sour patch kids,  M&Ms and sour ropes. No big bowl of popcorn and no Shirley Temples. I know there will come a time when Friday night means “going out with my friends, Mom.” But right now, tonight,  it’s movie night. A stop at Sonic, a stop at Dad’s Quick mart for candy, and time to set up for the movie we’ve probably seen 20 times. The line up right now: Diary of a Wimpy Kid (1 and 2), Despicable Me, Yogi Bear, or Gulliver’s Travels. Yep, one of those. I won’t complain about the choices, because movie night rocks. The mantra of my life is Be Here Now. This is the only moment, and really, most of the pain we give ourselves is worrying over past events we can’t change or future events that most likely won’t happen. I know, deep huh? Maybe I’ll make tea cake. Which has nothing to do with anything but sounds good.

Have I told you about this blog?

    Hey Toots,

    You’ve got things pretty well figured out :-). Smarter than the average bear, you know that right?
    Don’t fall off the air mattress tonight and hurt yourself. Kisses to Mighty T. Tell him Dolly says howdy!

    Nice post.

      Hey Dolly! Thank you. You are smarter than the average bear too. Hey, is that a dig because I made you go see Yogi Bear? That was the movie night movie…

    Wonderful mantra, and excellent movies! Love Despicable Me–the little minions, and those darling little girls. I’ve seen it 3x! Enjoy it to the max. You will all have these memories forever!

    And Ms M probably already told you, but I will, too–read Invisible Circus, if you haven’t already.
