Busy Day, Movie Night

Super busy day today; I was up by 6 and out of the house before 8! I had two Thanksgiving plays to attend; one as the teacher at preschool, the other as a parent at the elementary school. After the play, Ed and I went home and had lunch together, something which rarely happens! He went back to work, and I went to the gym to walk on the treadmill. Then the girls came home from school. They had an early dismissal because their Thanksgiving break started today. We have parent/teacher conferences with their teachers next week.


I thought it would be fun to watch a movie, so I tried to rent “Finding Dory” from Redbox. I searched online and finally found a DVD in a Des Plaines Redbox and reserved it. But when I got there, the box had an “error” and I didn’t get the DVD. That’s never happened before! I think the online inventory hadn’t caught up to real life inventory. So I drove to the Mount Prospect library and rented three movies, hoping that we could decide on one to watch tonight. I didn’t want to make our usual pizza for movie night, since we have eaten a lot of pizza in the past couple of weeks. I made tacos instead. (You can’t go wrong with tacos!)

So, which movie did we watch? An oldie but goodie: The Karate Kid!

What did you do on this Friday night?

  1. I didn’t help out at the setting up of our Christmas party last night. That’s what I did. Instead I slept a bit, watched tv a bit and that was it.

    I loved the Goonies. I will still watch it today as well (I have the dvd), it really holds up well.

  2. Yay!! I remember that movie fondly.
    Finding Dory is pretty great too.
    The kids were away and watched Inside Out. Cassidy and I had the weekend to ourselves. Friday night was a salmon dinner and then Saturday night was movie night – Doctor Strange.
