So today didn't go quite as planned. We did end up going to town but didn't go to the movie. We decided to go from place to place looking at bikes for our son ~ he's outgrown his already. I think we've found the one we're going to get him at Wal-Mart for around 100 bucks. It will have to wait until the next paycheck because most of our bills are due this time.
We ended up going to lunch at a place called Mulligan's that's supposed to be pretty good and it's on the river so you get to sit on the river and eat. Well the food was terrible and somewhat expensive so it was really aggravating. At least the view was nice and we could laugh with each other about it.
When we got home we were both tired so we got to take a nap together for the first time in ages. It was so nice.
Tonight we're probably doing steak for dinner and we're going to be watching some Star Wars movies. My son has suddenly taken a big interest in it because of the Angry Birds game of Star Wars. So my husband took Zachary down to the library and rented the 3 most recent ones. I hope they're not too intense for him. I don't think they will be though. He's watched the Spiderman series anddid okay with that. Maybe I'm overprotective of him, but I don't want him growing up thinking violence is normal.
And I say this as the manhunt continues in Boston for the surviving bomber, and Waco is on fire, and North Korea is aiming their missiles at our bases…etc, etc.
What the hell is this world coming to? I just don't understand. People are nuts, and I don't mean people like us on Dtribe. I mean wackos that enjoy killing and destroying others. I know there's evil in the world, but the magnitude of it just scares the hell out of me.
Well, I'm going to go back to my safe little haven here at home and pretend the world's not going to hell in a handbasket as they say. Just pretend for a little while that this is not the world I'm handing down to my child in a decade. That scares the daylights out of me.
I hope everyone finds a little peace tonight.
