Movie Night


Popcorn container from Cinemark

The library had a hunger games marathon with the potential to win tickets for The Hunger Games, Mocking Jay Part 1.

They had 10 tickets for 10 potential winners. Less than 10 people showed up, so the three oldest went to the 11 o’clock showing.

I made Stephanie and Benjamin popcorn and since I couldn’t get the internet to work, they played Minecraft past their bedtime.

They were in bed long before the others came home, which was after 1:30 am.

You would think they would have slept late, but no. They were up at their usual time, a bit touchy due to lack of sleep.

Everyone goes to bed early tonight!

At least I hope they do.

In One Day…

A lot has happened today, so much so, that I have no idea where to start.

First, we finally got a renter into the house, one that is going to eventually buy it, or at least that’s the plan. She already has the down payment, just is just waiting for the loan to be approved. She’ll move in March 1st.

Then Mike got a phone call… He got the job at Pepsico in Dallas. He was supposed to go to a second interview, but I guess he impressed them so much, they decided to skip the interview. It’ll be at least two more weeks before he starts, however. So we still have no steady income until then.

No problem, we used our last emergency fund to hold out until the end of March. With what the renter pays, the mortgage will be taken care of.

Sometime when all of this was unfolding, I injured my foot. Don’t ask how, as I’m still trying to figure that out myself, but there’s a nice gash on my heal. Mike did a good job in cleaning and wrapping it up.


p>Last but not least, everyone except Benjamin, the baby, and me went to see the “Son Of God” Prescreening. We couldn’t find a babysitter, so it was a little disappointing, but I got to rest my foot a little.

Well, except for the fact I had to take the dogs out. I may have to wait until it comes out on DVD.
