I get teary eyed & hyperventilate. Seriously.
& what's driving me nuts? I have to wait a little bit to see it.
It's actually starting in theaters on THURSDAY... THURSDAYYYYYY!!!! & Ricky cant go on a work night to see it....
& we cant go on Friday night because I have a 10K on Saturday & I need to get in bed fairly early & again, Ricky will be in bed by 7:30... & then Saturday, we have the race & then a birthday party we are going to.
I'm totally going to go on Sunday to see it - going with my youth girls... I think there's like 9-13 of us going.
But I want to see it with Ricky first.... so I think we're going to try & squeeze it in sometime on Saturday in between the race & the party. I'm still trying to talk him into going on Thursday. But he said he'll be too tired to enjoy it... which tells me he secretly loves the movie as much as I do ;) ... dont tell. We'll keep that secret between us.
|Kind of an accurate picture of us trying to figure out the time to go to the movie!!!!|
Anyways - ITS THIS WEEKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I'm totally fangirling....
So back to the weekend.
Friday started off with a busy bang. I stopped by to fuel up with some Starbucks - much needed - because we had a MSM hangout. These things start at 8pm. START at 8pm. I'm usually in PJ's & cozy with knitting & in fuzzy socks at that point of a night. & yes, I'm old.
|One for me. one for Ricky.|
... do you think the straw hole in his gave it away that I tried it?... oops.
But this night, I'm living it up with some middle school kids hanging out at church. I loved some of my girls from my small group showed up. They are the funniest girl... they way they talk. One of my favorite lines from the night when one girls said, "He needs to get on Craigslist & find some standards to live by"... where do they come up with this stuff? I wasnt that clever in 7th grade.
I got home & debated watching The Vampire Diaries. It was the series finale. This is it - its over. No more. Cue the feels. But I wanted to be able to enjoy it & not be tired so I went to bed.
Or if you want to call it bed. Bruno was up so many times throughout the night. & my back was hurting (did I mention I'm old?) & I couldn't get comfortable. So I think I slept maybe 4 hours. Dang it. I hate when I cant take advantage of sleep on the weekends.
But I got up before the sun & ended up watching The Vampire Diaries finale... & totally got weepy over it. Yes, I say all the time I'm a crying person - over every emotion. But the finale was REALLLLY well done. So good that I ended up watching it again to take it all in. If anyone watches the show & watched the finale... let's talk. I need someone to talk about all the amazing things in the ending of it all.
|OH Salvatore brothers... what will I do without you?|
I spent some of my morning working on my hand lettering & doing my bible study memory verse for the week. I love having these papers with my verses on them just to keep to look back on to remind me of the study.
Then, I finally had to give in & do my long run. Except I threw in the towel on doing it outside. It was in the low 30's & the 'real feel' was like in the 20's. I just couldnt. Not for 8 miles. So I headed down to my treadmill to really test out if it's fixed.
Whew... it held out the entire run.
& I got through more of The Crown.. one more episode to go.
|I'm so dreading that up next is 9 miles... God help me|
The rest of the day, I just felt spent... with no sleep happening the night before - I was lazy. Knitting & crocheting & just loving on our little blind boy.
& I was in bed & asleep by 8:30pm. Yep... once again... old. But I figured with the time change, it made sense to go to bed early. Which I know it doesn't really matter what I do - it'll still kick me in the butt for the whole week loosing an hour's sleep.
Sunday had me running to Panera to pick up some bagels for my JOYster's Bible study (I've claimed JOYsters for my JOY SISTERS... clever, huh?) & then headed over for our MSM group. To which the girls laughed at me when I thanked God in prayers that this is the week that Beauty & the Beast comes out. I keep it real in prayers. Really real.
But then headed right over after church for JOYsters...
|Someone else is excited about Beauty & the Beast coming out|
(side note... her mommy says she always says to anyone that gets angry, "YOU MUST CONTROL YOUR TEMPER" like the movie where they yell at the Beast... this girl gets me)
I stopped to pick up some dinner for Ricky & I on the way home & then about 5:30, got settled in to finally slow down. Just in time for a new week to kick in.
BUT THIS IS GOING TO BE THE BEST WEEK!!!!
Can you tell I'm excited???
How was your weekend?
Cold & snowy?
Excited about Beauty & the Beast?
