As I sat down tonight to write about our weekend I realized I had taken only ONE picture!!!
This whole weekend!! Louis Dean even reminded me to take THIS one!!
I must be really relaxed or I'm losing it......
This afternoon, after watching the Cowboys WIN their football game, Louis Dean and I took ourselves off to the movies to see Sully.
It was AMAZING and we loved every single minute of it!
Tom Hanks is always wonderful and I believe I have seen every film he's ever made - over 60!!!
I found a list online and, yes, I have seen NEARLY all of them except for A Hologram for the King - which I plan on seeing soon and a few others that slipped by when I wasn't looking.
Louis Dean actually requested we go to the movies and he doesn't do that often!
However, he only likes to go to The Movie Tavern where he can eat and have a big Shiner Bock in their famous refillable glass beer stein.
The seats are so comfy and the food is good.
This is a brand new theater having opened recently just around the corner from the old one.
Saturday I woke up at 8:30 and hit the floor running. Louis Dean slept another few hours while I stripped the guest room bed, remade it, started the laundry, emptied the dishwasher, made two batches of homemade cornbread to go with the pinto beans that had cooked overnight in the crock pot, vacuumed the den and tidied up the house in general. I was on a roll.
Amber came over in the afternoon to hang out and catch a breather from Life as a Quad Mom.
We rented Civil War and settled down to watch it with a platter of fried potatoes with onion, pinto beans and slices of buttered cornbread. GOOD eating!
I also opened the tin of Popcorn Crunch for munching after wards.
Louis Dean came in to join us towards the end of the movie and then we stopped it and hopped up to leave. "Where are you going?" Louis Dean asked.
"We are going to see a movie!" we said!
We rushed up to our local AMC with its luxury recliners just like the ones at the Movie Tavern to see Bridget Jone's Baby.
It was HILARIOUS!!!!
We laughed so hard at one scene that we had tears in our eyes!!
Amber said some of the patrons were just chuckling until they heard me laughing so hard that THEY started laughing too! It was fun!!
Then we came home and finished the OTHER movie!
All in all, this has been a wonderful weekend and I'm looking forward to a semi normal week ahead.
I'm still dialing it back and it sure seems to be working.
The quads will be here in the morning. I baked up my fourth batch of Pumpkin Spice Muffins tonight so we will have them for a snack when they arrive. Rayne loves these, too, so I'm going to box up a tin for her and a tin for our friends, Kimmy and June. After that, I'll start turning lights out and head for bed! Louis Dean is already there.
It's only 9:30!
