I can't wait to have my man back. Being the only adult around reminds me all too much of what it was like when he was deployed last year and it makes me feel weird. I haven't slept well, we've been eating cereal for dinner now and again, I'm not getting along with Big Boy, and my dreams have been awful. The other night I dreamt that T left me for a perky young thing who he just couldn't stop talking to me about. Yes T and I were still on speaking terms despite the separation. I spent half of the next waking day feeling upset by this disturbing dream. And without T around to punch in the arm for no understandable reason made things all the worse. Oh he's used to me and these occasional dreams. "What did I do now?" Is all he says when I give him a good strong pinch first thing in the AM. I think I need therapy.
I took Little Boy to see a movie for his day-date today. We rotate turns for individual time with parents around here. He chose to see Prince of Persia. After looking into the parental screening information online, I decided it would be okay for him. Lots of violence very little in the sex and nudity dept. Call me a bad parent but I am just fine with that. It was an okay movie. I'd call it a modern update of Aladdin mixed with par core. And Jake Gyllenhaal did some serious working out for this movie. He really made me miss my husband even more. If you don't mind snakes and a lot of stabbing, go and see it.
A real treat for me today was seeing my oldest son perform in a violin concert. It wasn't just any old end of the year performance. It was the Mark Wood experience. Oh, let me introduce you to Mr Wood.... Here he is.
They surprised me by charging 10.00 per seat for us to see it! This was a first in my experience watching my kids play in a concerts. I had only brought Big Girl and it was a good thing because I may not have had enough cash. Mark Wood graduated from Julliard and has a serious non-Julliard edge to him. Although he did keep expressing to us the importance of family and support. I suppose he wanted us to support our kids by buying them his electric violin creation he named 'The Viper.' They rocked their violins to the tunes of Crazy Train by Ozzy Ozborn, Elenor Rigby by the Beatles, Viva la Vida by Cold Play, and a rock version of Hoedown. I couldn't stop smiling. I wish I could post video of it but he said not to. It was amazing though.
I am beat today so I think I'll end this post non creatively and just say good night. But first I am going to make sure we are all locked up : ) So don't get any crazy break in ideas.
