Anyways we had to go to a later showing of Tangled and T took over the roll of driver for both groups of people. That's what T gets for making us late with his running. I did offer to drive and let him see the movie with the girls but he wouldn't hear of it. We accidentally paid for the 3D version and I thought I would regret that since my 3 year old doesn't usually like the glasses so it's a waste of the extra money. Not this time! It was so dang beautiful she couldn't stop talking to me about it during the film. Her funniest thing said was at the beginning of the movie when we first put on the glasses. She said "let's cheer our glasses together" (like a toast). We often clink things together when we have two of the same thing. Don't ask me why. We also make a sound effect that sounds like "sha-shingah." Yes, we are bizarre. You gotta problem? So we clinked our faces together and said the words. We had a bit of a moment there, and I was so grateful for her. Then the movie started and I proceeded to have my socks blown off by Disney and their magical story telling skills. The animation was amazing, the music was wonderful. They are some seriously talented people at Disney, and the movie made me cry... twice. Maybe something is up with me (see PMS comment above), but I was so moved by the tale of an kidnapped, abused, abandoned girl who doubts herself but still moves forward hesitantly pursuing her dreams.
I think we all have self doubt sometimes. I know I do. I have also felt the load of family members with hurt feelings venting them on me all last week. I hate being in the middle of family disputes. Why can't we all just hold hands and sing? I tried calling the other party and telling them my feelings on the matter and of course it went in one ear and out the other. I need to get to a happier place. Not in the middle... A place where there are more leftovers in the fridge and the door handle is not sticky. Where my kids leave me more than just a sliver of the french chocolate silk pie. Maybe next Thanksgiving? Maybe I need more perspective. Maybe I just got up too early to shop today and by 9:02pm, I am cranky. Maybe I will go and snuggle with T now. Hope your black Friday was happy and gay.
For me, "tomorrow is another day"
