I went to the movies today.
Wednesday is my normal day off and I love it as it breaks up the week just beautifully. There are those rare days when our son's day off coincides with mine, and he came over and took his mother out to a movie. We are following a grand tradition. My Mother and I often went to the movies together. Brad and I did this when he was growing up and when the opportunity arises, and the opportunities are getting far and few between these days, we get together and go to the movies. He and I have pretty similar tastes and even though I didn't know which one I was going to see, I didn't think twice before saying yes when he called. "Mom, do you want to go to the movies on Wednesday?" "I'd love to son." That's about how it goes. So all the plans to clean up this house go by the wayside, I put off what I was going to do because it can always be done another day. These times together are always too precious to waste. After the movie we went to lunch, and then he helped me with my grocery shopping, brought them all in for me when we got home and left a short while later. It was a great trip out and tomorrow I will be back at work raring to go, I hope!
