Kevin and I are home right now – alone! He’s downstairs on his computer – I’m upstairs on mine. Pathetic, I know. But in our defense, we did just get back from dinner, and we are meeting in a short while in the living room to watch Lady in the Water.
We are enjoying this blissful date night thanks to my wonderful friend Michelle and her equally wonderful husband Don, who invited all three of our boys to their house for a sleepover and Game Cube blowout. Natalie is staying with Grandmama and Papa, and voila!, we get dinner out, a movie to watch, and a morning to sleep in.
A few days ago when I listed my favorite Christmas presents, I neglected to mention the wonderful gift Michelle gave me – probably because she gave it to me a couple weeks ago, knowing that we were taking a few weeks off of school and I would have more reading time available. She gave me a first edition of Trinity by Leon Uris, one of my favoritest, favoritest books in the whole world! (You can read more about how much I love this book here – and here.) Plus, she also gave me a copy of Redemption, the sequel. I tell you, book-loving friends make the best gift-givers.
Well, I’m off to watch a movie with my hubby. I don’t know if I’ll post again before 2007, so Happy New Year, everyone!
