Doing Nuthin...

That's what I was told to do since today is my birthday. Do you know how hard it is to do nothing? This morning we slept in due to watching Spiderman 1 and 2 last night and getting to bed really late (or early depending on how you look at it). I read some in a magazine before getting out of bed -- luxury -- then I took my shower and went out to the kitchen. There I was greeted with many happy birthdays and was sung the happy birthday song. Then I was escorted to the living room where everyone gave me my cards. Ben made me several "games" to play. They were guessing games on paper and a maze. Lots of fun! Then Beth made breakfast for me while I climbed back on my bed to read some more in my magazine. After breakfast I talked with a friend on the phone and checked my email. (where I got a really cute email birthday card from my friend Perri). The plan for today was to go see Spiderman 3 and then go out to dinner. After much contemplation, I couldn't think of one restaurant that I wanted to go to, so I decided on home grilled ribeye steaks, grilled zucchini and squash, spinach salad and ice cream (my choice). So we decided on the 1:00 showing of Spiderman. We arrived at 12:55 -- I was a bit afraid they would be sold out -- but as it turned out they cancelled their 1:00 showing. Hmmph... We went ahead and bought tickets for the 3:00 showing and then went to SAMS to buy the ribeyes. They look SOOO good. (Neal's firing up the grill as I type this) Then we ran by Food Lion and purchased the zucchini, squash and ice cream. I picked out Blue Bunny's Guilty Conscience ice cream. Sounds good already, doesn't it? :o) It's dark chocolate ice cream with ribbons of peanut butter running through it and chunks of peanut butter cup. Oh sounds soooo good. I hope it tastes as good as it sounds! After our food run we took the food on home and had 15 minutes before we needed to drive back to the cinema. I spent a few minutes with Mom out on her swing and then we drove on to the movies.

I loved Spiderman III!!! There were so many different villians and once again they had some good humor in it.

(okay, I am having a really hard time not doing anything here! Beth is cooking bacon for the salad, Ben is getting ready to wash strawberries and clean the table, Neal is boiling eggs and grilling steak. I feel like I should be doing something!!!)

Okay -- back to Spiderman III. If you are a Spiderman fan, I don't think you'll be disappointed. Of course if you're a Spiderman fan you probably didn't wait until May 19th to go see it. :o)

Now I'm off to find something "not" to do. :o)

Sounds like you had a fun, refreshing and lounging kind of a day-- I could use one of those! :-)

Sounds like a great day but I know what you mean about not doing anything. It usually drives me bonkers.

I'm lazy so it's really not hard for me to do nothing. Kinda comes natural.

I liked the first Spiderman but not the second. I'm thinking I'll just send hubby to check the third one out before we let Jr see it. I would just hate to waste all that babysitter money on a movie I didn't like. :-D
