The Movie in my Purse

As I've been trying to unpack and take care of normal stuff, I have been pretty overwhelmed.

We don't have TV reception. I know that's no big deal. But I really enjoy watching TV in the evenings after the kids have gone to bed. I usually let the kids watch a show after nap time too.

I don't have a dishwasher, so there's a lot of extra washing after each meal.

The kids are fighting a lot! I've been dishing out a lot of spankings and nose-in-corner times.

So here's my point. I love good old chick flicks. I had decided to watch Pride and Prejudice the other day and I didn't get around to it. ( I don't subject Jody to movies like that since he hates them, and we do like to watch things we mutually agree on). So I stuck it in my purse. I was thinking that maybe I'd watch it when I took the kids to my parents the other day. Then I walked around with it in my purse today at the grocery store. Why? Wishful thinking I guess.

Then I walked into Blockbuster to buy The Water Horse for Silas for his birthday (belated) and I made the sensor go off as soon as I walked in. The guy looked at me and I said, "I'm carrying a movie of my own in my purse." He didn't say anything back. And the Water Horse doesn't come out until next week. Then I made the sensor go off as I walked out.

I'm delirious. And crazy. I know.

I have done things like that before! LOL Pride and Prejudice is one of my favorite movies - I know you will enjoy it. :) Hope you guys are settling in well...I thought of you today when I was visiting my hubbie at NGU (he works in computer services).

My UTMOST SYMPATHIES for not having a dishwasher. My dishwasher gets broken for a day, and I panic!!

Guess, we shouldn't have given Jody such a hard time about loading the clean dishwasher--ha! If would be great to have that problem now!!!

I spent the last 2.5 years without a dishwasher - it was horrible. I can't imagine being in that situation with kids! Poor thing.

Also, your purse must be a mary-poppins-like bag that holds all kinds of stuff. Mine is home to water bottles, an umbrella and all kids of other random things.

Paper plates are the best! I still use them even with a dishwasher. I hope you get to watch your movie soon. I wish I could be there to take the kids, so you could just take a nap or watch your movie. Maybe soon!
