Okay, first, let’s get this out of the way.
I actually watched the game last night (well, the second half, anyway) which I’m sure you know is very unlike me. But I knew it’d be fun to watch it in the company of other fans, so after the boys went to bed, I headed to the pub. I’m so glad I did. It was a lot of fun, and man, when that field goal was being kicked (gosh, don’t I sound like a football expert there?) everyone was holding hands and when it made it, everyone was screaming and hugging and kissing and there were many tears.
So that was a nice ending to a nice weekend. The boys and I spent it with Ren and her daughters Alison and Chloe. We hung out, went grocery shopping, made yummy food, went to a park, and took the kids to a movie.
Yes, you read that right. The two of us took FIVE kids to the movie. Chloe and Alison have been before, but this was the boys’ first movie. My last experience with taking a kid to their first movie ended after about five minutes, but I was very impressed that the boys lasted a whole hour! We probably could have stayed the whole time, but they were giggling and talking to each other and dropping their DVD cases and so Ren and I figured we should cut our losses (and spare the other moviegoers) and just leave. But an hour! That’s not bad! And there was no crying!
So yeah, that was our weekend. Woo!
