I started to do all sorts of grown up things this week. My son was off work on Monday and Tuesday last week. He's normally off Monday and Friday or Monday and Wednesday. I kept most of my groaning and whining to myself, but sometimes it would escape. I feel ridiculous, but the emotions are real.
I try to set a good example for him, suggesting we wait until movies hit the theater that only charges a dollar or sometimes even wait until DVDs come out. After all, what's the hurry? Not getting to see "Eclipse" on the first day was bad enough, but waiting a whole 5 days has been hard. I actually thought about slipping off to see it while he was at work. Of course, there's no way I could have kept quiet about it afterwards.
We stayed up really late last night. I couldn't sleep. I woke up a couple of hours later, waiting for my son to get up. He usually is up for work by 12:30 and it's already 1:48 and he's still sleeping. How can he want to sleep a whole 6 or 7 hours when "Eclipse" is showing every 30 minutes? I'm having a hard time not doing something noisy to wake him.
Water my new seeds, check my plants, gather trash for the pick up tomorrow, report my mystery shop, how much busy work can a person do before the important things like going to see this movie?
I'm not sure why this movie series grabs me like it does. I think it's the werewolves looking like real wolves. Maybe it the action in the movie. Maybe it's thinking that Bella is making the wrong choice and just hoping it will turn out okay. Of course, I am a Dakota Fanning fan, so that might be a smidgeon of it. I can't remember when I've been so anxious to see a film. Maybe it's all the hype that is all around, TV, Internet, newspapers. Whatever. Today is the day. If only my son will finally wake up. Of course, he's going to want to eat first. Think I'll go make something so he can eat in the car on the way FINALLY to the movie theater.
Can we say ONE TRACK mind? I'm a Twilight addict.
Thank the stars. He's awake. He walked into the room and asked if I was ready to go to the movie. I didn't tell him just for the last 4 hours. Whoo hoo, we're off!
