Well I didn’t get to go out Friday night. Struggled along to my mothers group Friday morning and didn’t really enjoy that, did the grocery shopping and never enjoy that, and then took some videos back and let the dog off the lead at the oval and when I got back I sat down and thought I can’t go out tonight. Bummer!! I don’t get to go out very often without Jaycee Junior as I don’t have the built-in babysitter that two parent families have if one person wants to go out. I hear my friends talk about going to the gym or to yoga or whatever and just envy them. So I went back to the video shop and hired three movies – Dogville (not what I wanted on a feeling sick Friday night), Along Came Polly (a Hollywood load of crap and so predictable) and Shrek (have already seen it at least three times).
Yesterday, though, I took Jaycee Junior to the cinema to the Babes in Arms session to see Shrek 2. He was a bit outraged that it wasn’t Monster Inc even though I’d been saying we were going to see Shrek. I’m outraged that popcorn cost nearly as much as the movie itself and I only bought it to keep the kid entertained. In future I’ll be taking my own popcorn thank you very much. I took my own drinks and had other snacks handy in case he got sick of popcorn. We had to do one quick trip to the loo which I knew would happen but all in all it was an ok experience.
