Only ME

Happy Belated Mother’s Day

Happy belated Mother’s Day to all of my Mom readers!  I would have totally written this yesterday, but I was busy. Busy doing a lot of nothing but watching movies. It was awesome.

It was not quite a perfect day, since the hubs has to work on Sundays so he wasn’t home. But he made sure it started and ended perfectly.  That man gets me (Very few people do).

Instead of the standard flowers and card- he gave me “movie money”.  I absolutely adore movies. The only thing that makes a movie better is going to the theater to watch it. I love the atmosphere, the absurdly expensive popcorn (the flavor not the monetary insanity of it), the darkened theater, the wonderfully loud and crystal clear sound streaming through gigantic hidden speakers… AHH.  Was a perfect gift for me, and he knew it.  Love that man. (Yes, I am a low-maintenance kind of girl. So what?)

Movie money in hand, my daughter and I went to see the new Insurgent movie.  It’s an interesting teen-action film.  Because of those blasphemous creations of Stephanie Meyer’s I had sworn off any teen movies prior. That woman’s vision of vampires and werewolves were such a cinematic abortion and disgusting poke in the eye to any of the amazing “monster movies” to once grace the silver screen it made me want to vomit. Sparkly, vegetarian vampires. PFFT. Please.

When my daughter begged me to see The Hunger Games I thought I would be right back to wanting to poke my eyes out with the Icee straws in the theater while simultaneously stuffing popcorn in my ears to drown out the inane drivel the prissy vamps were spewing. Thankfully, I was pleasantly surprised with The Hunger Games.  Since Divergent was in the same genre I gave it a try, and it didn’t disappoint (Insurgent is the sequel to Divergent). I won’t say that I loved it but I did like it, and I enjoyed going to the theater with my brat.

My son graced my home with his presence, and did some heavy lifting for me so that I didn’t have to- which is always a plus.  Then I talked him into watching Maleficent with us girls since it was on demand. He was nice to his sister the whole time…That was a gift in and of itself.

I texted back and forth with my Mother- and it didn’t end horribly.

To end the day, Jimmy picked up bottle of my favorite wine on his way home from work. (Told you that man gets me.) Then we watched a Tyler Perry movie together, Single Mom’s Club– mostly because I bribed him with Terry Crews- and because it is the one day I get total remote control-control.

Even though it may not take a lot to make me happy, the people that I love the most made sure that I had a pretty damned-near perfect day.  So to my hubby and kids- thank you. I am glad that you are my family, and I love you.

This is an old picture- but one of my favorite memories with my family- Disneyland in 2004.

  1. Sounds like a wonderful Mother’s Day! I was skeptical at first about the Hunger games too, but was pleasantly surprised! Anxious for the sequel to come out in the Fall and we saw Divergent also, so now we do have to watch Insurgent. Malficent we saw in a drive in with the kids this past summer 🙂

    1. LOVE movies! Especially in the summers here when it gets too hot to do anything but hide inside or stay submerged. Insurgent was good- not sure how they are going to do another movie- I think there were 3 books in the series. The sequels are almost never as good as the first ones- but this held up well.
