Off to the movies.

After my hubby ran out of paint, halfway through the last wall in Monkey's room last night, he decided to rescue me from the heat by taking me to an air conditioned movie! We saw Mamma Mia, which was kinda his idea. I was totally surprised that he expressed any interest in it, I kinda thought it would be fun to see with my Mom.

Anyway, he rolled his eyes at me the entire time. I thought it was a really fun movie, the little bits of lameness just added to the funniness. (I may have disturbed a few people with my boisterous laughter at seemingly inappropriate moments, but I couldn't help myself) Pierce can not sing, I could not keep a straight face when he sang. But he is cute, so....

We adored Meryl Streep's character's friends in the movie, they were hilarious and we all left the theatre smiling. Well except for Brent. He had his head down, looking around surreptitiously, I think he was looking out for the man-card patrol lying in wait to take his card away.

I am sure when we walked in the back door of the house, it was 20 degrees warmer inside than outside. Ick. But with the fan blowing, I mangaged to sleep fairly well. Today I am pretending I am at the beach, I put on my swimsuit after breakfast and went out to sit in the sun. If you can't beat the heat, might as well enjoy it. Hope you can too.

  1. Here's a trick from when I was pregnant and hot. I sprinkled cold water on the sheets. It gave us goosebumps and surely beat the heat....

  3. Oh my, I so loved Pierce PRIOR to that movie. My friend and I agreed that that they must have deprived him his stool softener prior to that performance. It was painful; poor guy.

    Oh, yeah. Long time lurker coming out of hiding to boo-hiss Pierce! LOL!

  4. What a good hubby, MMM. I'm usually cold when my Hubs is hot, but when I remember being pregnant and turning on the A/C full blast in the car and Hubs shivering in a sweater while I complained I couldn't get it cold enough! I feel for you!

  7. Too funny! I've had no desire to see that one. But I understand the experience with the hubby. My Hunny kept shushing me through the Dark Night, and all I was doing was gasping.

  8. Oh my--I saw your pregnancy ticker and you're getting close, girl!

    I've been out of the blogosphere for a few weeks, but while I was away, I had planned on painted my Big Boy's room.

    The can of paint is still sitting in the garage . . .

    (I always think that I like painting--but then when it actually comes to doing it--I realize that I actually hate painting!) :)

  11. Wow. Your husband has officially impressed me.

    And, I've just caught up on the previous posts. Oh, the joys of DIY home improvement. I totally understand that underlying uneasiness that won't seem to let you rest until it's all done!
