After my last post, I took my own advice. I told Dan that I NEEDED sleep and I got 2 glorious days of not having to get up with the girls! It was a much needed break and I can say that I actually feel some what HUMAN again!
Not only did I get sleep but we got to out for a quick date to catch the new Avengers movie on Friday. I'm not a big movie theater person. I find it too loud, cold, and uncomfortable. I also have a fear of leaving my seat once the movie starts because I'm afraid of tripping down (or up) the stairs. I AM THAT CLUMSY!
I'm a people watcher and there were a few things that struck me as a bit odd. Maybe it's because I just don't get out much.
- Some man was using one of the headphones that makes things louder. I've seen these on infomercials but never actually knew anyone that had a pair. However, he promptly removed them within seconds of the previews starting. Not going to lie, it made me giggle a little bit although I did feel bad for his poor ears!
- So many people take phone calls and texts! One guy left the theater at least 3 times... is he really that important? I think too many of us are forgetting that we do not need to be available every moment of the day! Enjoy the moment! Not to mention, you paid good money to see this movie and now you keep leaving... sit down and get your money's worth!
- This last one irks me... I never knew that people bring babies to the movies! As in newborn babies! Every time the theater was quiet I could hear the baby crying or making noise. I don't really mind the noise but my concern is for the baby. If a theater is too loud and cold for me, I can't imagine how that baby feels. I know it can be hard to miss out on things because you can't find a sitter but there are much more appropriate places to get adult time with your kiddos. Just sayin'.
Of course, we had to bring Abby back a surprise since we went out without her for the afternoon. Here she is with her very first baseball mitt!
