Very few things beat waking up after 8 am during the week. So let’s see if we can beat that all in one day.
For starters, I actually placed my phone on silent last night, which rarely happens, just in case someone decided to call or text before my alarm was set to go off this morning. After sleeping late it was eventually time to crawl out of bed. There were a lot of things that needed to be accomplished today and lying in bed all day was not one of them. So at 9:30 am (what!? I actually slept past 6:45 am?) it was time to wash my hair and get my day started.
Since I was on a time schedule to get out the door and meet up with my Sister by a certain time, drying and fixing my hair was not an option. So into a side swept bun it went and I ran out the door, with no makeup on what so ever.
On my day off work, I was going to spend time with my Sister. She cleans houses for a living. I met her at the first house this morning just in time to help carry her cleaning supplies to the car and head to the next house on the list.
After the second house was cleaned it was time to head to the movies for one of our birthday traditions. This past Monday was my Sister’s birthday so it was her turn to pick the movie. Good choice on movies Sis!!!!! One of the best I’ve seen in a while. Can’t wait to own it on DVD and start throwing some quotes from it into our conversations.
The movie was set to start at 1:55 pm (why not wait the extra 5 mins and call it 2 pm?). Anyway, we were running late after the last house cleaning and stopping at Chick-Fil-A for a quick bite to eat. Neither one of us can go very long without eating and were going to skip the popcorn at the theater so opted for fast food instead. We purchased our tickets at 1:58 pm and thought we’d miss the previews and just get the movie. To our surprise, the previews had not even started yet and the theater was practically empty. So I turned to Michelle and said “you didn’t know I rented out the entire theater for your birthday did you?” We had a grand ole laugh because we both knew that hadn’t happened. I crack myself up.
Eventually the lights went down, the previews played, and then the movie started. We were both laughing from the very beginning. It’s a good thing there were only two other people in there, otherwise we might have been kicked out from laughing so much. Bet you’re wondering what movie we saw huh? Should I keep the suspense going? Or just tell you which one we saw?
Okay, okay I’ll tell you.
Michelle picked “This Means War”
We were only 20 minutes into it and Michelle leaned over and said “You have to buy this when it comes out.” She’s totally right, it will be on my list to purchase when it becomes available. I wanted to stick around for the next showing but knew we had to go. Let’s just say it is one I’d watch again. That doesn’t happen very often, where I’d pay to watch a movie more than once in the theater, but for this one I might just make an exception. My only complaint was they could have left out one scene.
Alas, the credits came on the screen and it was time to leave. As she drove me back to my car, which we left at Chick-Fil-A, I tried to give her $0.50 for the toll on the drive home. Once I got in my car though, Michelle rolled down her window and started throwing quarters at my car because she thought I had sneakily left them in her car. Yet one more thing to make us both laugh.
Now “Miss Congeniality” (one of my favs, I laugh every time!) is on TV and a glass of chocolate milk is calling my name. What a way to end a great day. February is now in the books and it was wonderful to spend almost an entire week celebrating my Sister’s birthday. Maybe “This Means War” will be on DVD by the time my birthday rolls around and we can watch it again Sis!
Hope everyone else had a fantastic Leap Day.
