Michael and I had the house unexpectedly to ourselves tonight when my parents decided to drive up to see my brother compete in a CrossFit tournament tomorrow. A night to ourselves…is kind of a big deal for us considering that we are living with my parents at the moment. I didn’t want to waste it. At the very least, we had to have a Movie Night.
The problem is…we are both exhausted. Michael from working overtime (plus suffering from a head cold) and me from…Motherhood. You know how it goes. Well, being the Well-intentioned Wife I am, I brought out the big guns and drank a Coke as soon as the kids went to bed so that I would be able to stay awake for an entire movie. (I also forced myself to eat a large piece of Valentine’s Day cookie cake to capitalize on the sugar helping me stay awake.) Well, it turns out my poor hubby, for one of the first times in my memory, wasn’t up for staying awake for an entire movie…just my luck. Ick…all of those good intentions and caffeine and sugar going to waste (=my hips) and keeping me up way past my bedtime. Not to mention, being the Well-Intentioned Wife that I am, I promised Michael he would get to sleep in tomorrow. Ouch. I guess I’ll have to eat another piece of cookie cake in the morning to help me wake up.
So now I’m up late by myself watching Grease on ABC Family and posting pictures of the cutest kids in the world on the Internet. You know, that John Travolta really was a cutie pie too. But my kids will not be watching Grease until they can write essays pointing out the social and moral problems depicted and promoted by the film. Call me what you will on that one.
Now for some pictorial excerpts of Franco Family Fun that might briefly entertain you if you’re up late like me because you drank a Coke trying to be a Good Wife, or maybe if you’re up nursing the baby because you’re a Good Mommy. Or if you’re related to me and you’re excited to see pictures of the kids. Wherever and whenever you’re reading this, God bless you and keep you, sweet reader. Enjoy!
