Stephanie and I decided to go out again on Friday. This time we actually made a plan, and get this, for the most part, we stuck to it. Chalk one up for us!
Steph came out and picked me up around four on Friday and we stopped at Subway on the way back to Salt Lake and had a bit of dinner. Nothing exciting, but good conversation. When we got to Salt Lake, we went and did a little shopping then stopped at the dollar theater and bought tickets for two movies.....a 9:30 show and a Midnight show. Then we did a little more shopping.
While at the mall, we managed to give two teenage girls something to tell their friends about on school on Monday...." There were these two weird women in the bathroom at the mall...." Not that we were doing anything weird, but through the eyes of a teenager, two grown women laughing out loud and behaving like we don't KNOW we're two grown women....yeah, put that in the "stange" category.
We went and saw "The Ice harvest" starring John Cusack ( Can you say YUMMY?) and Billy Bob Thorton. It was a really good movie, a little slow in spots, but good all the same. I would have to say, that despite the fact I think John Cusack is a great actor, the best part of the movie was the character played by Oliver Platt. I recommend this movie, you should check it out.
After "The Ice Harvest", we went to see "Zathura". It's based on the book by Chris Van Allsburg. We were surprised by how good it was. Both Stephanie and I thought we would like it, a little, but we laughed most of the way through. Again, I think this is a good flick to see, even if you don't have children.
By the time "Zathura" was over it was two in the morning. We headed back to Tooele.....oh did I mention that when we got to Tooele, instead of going right home we stopped at Wal-Mart first? Yeah, Wal-Mart at three in the morning. You see, Stephanie had been bribed earlier in the evening to take me to South Towne mall so that I could get a couple of Mrs. Fields stuffed cookies.....YUM!!! ( cravings, you know I love them) So we stopped at Wal-Mart to fulfill the bribe..........New Movies!!! Stephanie is almost more of a movie junkie than I am, imagine that!
I finally got home around four thirty in the morning. I was just getting ready to go to bed when my son woke up, so mommy didn't actually get to sleep until shortly before seven on Saturday morning. This is where I discovered I am no longer as young as I think I am. I woke up later feeling like I had been on an all night drinking binge. Apparently when you are 35, pregnant and raising a toddler, staying out all night is not such a bright idea, who knew?
I'm afraid to say, that even with this knowledge Stepanie and I are likely to repeat this behavior, it seems to be in our nature.....ahh well, at least I'll be smiling with the bags under my eyes!!!
Later folks, I'm off to watch Bugs Bunny with my son!
