Last week, we were able to check another box of our extended bucket list. Although we aren’t doing everything that I want, I am keeping my kids occupied, utilizing the library and a friend’s pool most of all. I have not up any undo pressure on myself to make sure that I make it through the list, but I have a list of potential options when I get “stuck”.
Back to last week. I decided to go see Hook with our friends. Getting the children up and out the door before 9:30 in the morning is definitely proving to be a challenge, but when we do, it’s so worth it.
Our friends had already arrived at the theater by 9:30 and texted me indicating that seats had been saved and she was in Theater 11.
With all the commotion with children coming in, I was comforted knowing that I didn’t have to struggle to find a seat. I got us all checked in (and even though we were assigned theater 14), I marched confidently to Theater 11, only to find out that my friend’s mother had failed to save enough seats for us all.
I quickly rushed down to Theater 14, hoping to find decent seats for the four of us. Thankfully I did, off to the side, but where we were in a partial row. The huge benefit of this was that our constant moving wasn’t a distraction to our neighbors and we weren’t sitting directly in front of anyone to disturb them.
I think I saw Hook once many years ago. This time had a very different feel, one of relating to Peter Pan instead of my previous viewing where I related to the son.
Even though this was an oldie, it was certainly a goody. For the price (FREE), it was certainly worth doing again.
