Travis & I are going to see a movie tonight - just us - and Noelle is going to the grandparents! I had to look on my calendar to see when the last movie I saw in the theater was - December 19 - "Return of the King." I get to see the new Harry Potter tonight! My life is way different than it was pre-marriage and pre-baby. It was nothing to go to a movie at the theater every weekend. Now, we're all about checking out videos from the library for free, and the occasional new release at Hollywood Video.
Although I wouldn't change where I am in life now for anything, I sometimes miss the time I had with girlfriends going to the movies on the weekends. That's who I always went with and it was a weekly time for us to connect if we didn't somewhere else. There were 4 of us who were single and usually did something together on Friday nights. Then one got married, and then I did, then #3 and now there is one who is still single. She and the married w/o children still go out, but now that N. is here, we're kind of out of that loop. Once you are out of one loop, it's easy to get overlooked for the next loop, and the next . . . I guess I've been feeling lonely lately. A couple hours at Starbucks with some girlfriends sounds pretty great to me.
Enough on that! I have way too much to be thankful for. :-)
You will make known to me the path of life;
In Your presence is fullness of joy;
In Your right hand there are pleasures forever.
