Finally! Today was the day for us to get to see Rogue One, and it did not disappoint! I love that as soon as we got in the car (after the movie) the kids were quick to ask what we were going to see tomorrow? I guess we have frequented the theater a bit over the break... but off to work Aron and I will go tomorrow, and then school starts back later this week. (insert sad face) Winter break has come to an end, and although I have enjoyed not having to pack lunches and take people to school, I know they are anxious to get back to see their friends.
Besides the movie, the day has been very low key. I had BIG plans to pack up the Christmas décor, but somehow none of it got put away! I guess another few day of glowing trees isn't so bad. We spent the later part of the day playing our racing game, and I got sucked into this new Mariah Carey series. I used to be all about MC back in the Vision of Love days, that was the best tape (yes, I had that on tape). After 3 episodes, I made dinner. We were so looking forward to bang bang shrimp pasta and there was nothing banging about it. I should have known when I added 1/2 a cup of mayo that this would not be my best dish.
Well, it is 9 o'clock and the kids have been in bed for almost an hour. Sophia has only come in 6 times to tell us she cannot sleep, and now the man friend has caved and she is now snuggled in between us (looks like I will be getting some awesome sleep tonight)! I guess I am signing off here, the glow of the laptop will keep her awake and she is already asking what I am typing and trying to read it to me!
Day 2 of 2017... I consider it a success.
