We sort of have the night off tonight. The kids are staying overnight at the in-laws, as we are CLOSING ON OUR HOUSE TOMORROW. Can I get a “woo woo”? I’m too excited for words. Plus, my mother-in-law is a pretty considerate person when she wants to be, so she got movie tickets for Frank and me to see Mamma Mia. I think we both probably would have preferred to see The Dark Knight, but a free movie is a free movie so I’m not complaining. And Mamma Mia was entertaining enough. Except Pierce Brosnan cannot sing nearly as well as the movie tried to convince you he could.
So we saw the movie, and are now enjoying a romantic evening of sitting on the couch and looking at our corresponding laptops. Frank’s doing actual work — you know, the stuff that’s buying us that house tomorrow. I could be doing actual work, like editing some photos I took last month to sell as stock but I apparently would rather blog about gas prices and put a blue clay mask on my face (which startled Frank quite amusingly). We’re also watching The Daily Show/Colbert Report replays. I do think this is my favorite hour of TV, even when Big Love is in season.
Tomorrow morning, we have to hit the bank and completely drain our savings account to pay our down payment and closing costs. Maybe I’ll make Frank do that and I’ll go to the gym. Then lunch with the in-laws and kids, then we’ll walk next door to our NEW HOUSE and do the walk-through, then go to the closing. AND THEN, HAVE I MENTIONED, WE WILL BE HOMEOWNERS AGAIN?!?!
Yay! Congrats on the closing! How was Mama Mia?
Mamma Mia, overall, was good. The scenery was amazing! Meryl Streep was entertaining as usual, and the girl who played Sophie (who is also in Big Love!) was awesome. Her fiancee was hawt!
Colin Firth was adorable. Which I know is what you really care about, Manda. 🙂
Dark knight was hours and hours long and was carried by Heath Ledger. You will enjoy it on TV in the spring.
