|Movie Day Today!|
We woke up this morning to the smell of freshly-cooked bacon, grits, biscuits, and eggs frying in the pan. My sweet hubby cooked breakfast this morning and THEN woke us up to fill our tummies. Thanks, Honey--everything was delicious.
Not long after eating breakfast, the kids and I decided that we WOULD go to a movie--THE BEE MOVIE--at the RAVE 15 in Baton Rouge. Because of the explosion of a well in a nearby town, the interstate has been closed for several days (and probably won't reopen until the first week of December), traffic on our usual route is absolutely insane. So, we decided to go to that theater, which is located in the area of the Mall of Louisiana, by traveling on Airline Highway and cutting off on Bluebonnet. This route had less traffic, but it's farther away, so we made sure to allow for the extra time AND the possibility of traffic tie-ups. All went well, though, and we got to the movie with time to spare.
It is getting so expensive to go to the movies; I think we'll have to cut down on this pretty soon. We can always follow Sid's suggestion: Wait 'til the DVD comes out. I think well have to start doing that, especially with the kids because they always wants drinks/candy/popcorn, etc. I, too, like to get popcorn (it always tastes better at the movies, don't you think?), but even getting the boys their drinks (they each wanted a large Dr. Pepper) cost $9--unbelievable. Thankfully, they didn't both want popcorn nor did they want candy, so that was good; however, getting my drink and Randi's along with one bag of popcorn brought the cost to over $25, and this is NOT counting the tickets. Whew! Like I said--movies will soon be a thing of the past for us.
When we got back to the Cottage, we noticed that Sid was working in the barn. He built a "thing" for storing wood for our bonfires and fire box nights. Because he had cut some of the huge pieces of tree barks from our experience with the bulldozer, he really needed something rather large. He did a really nice job with that, and I'll have to try to remember to get a picture of it.
Supper done, baths over, clothes in the washer/dryer--I think I'm almost ready for bed. Tomorrow, the kids and I head to Lockport for a very quick trip there. Hopefully, I'll find Dad in better shape than he was when Paul visited on Sunday. More on that later--
Until then, have a great evening and a terrific tomorrow.
