On Sunday morning, after I had woken up a bundle of anxiety and stress over all!the!things! we needed to do around the house, Chris declared that I must go out and see a movie that night. I agreed. I knew I needed it. After two weeks here the only time I had spent by myself was a five minute CVS run for chocolate frosting. That is not enough, espcially with my stress levels with the move and the extra fussiness of a certain toddler housemate of mine.
By 6:00 on Sunday night I was ready. I hopped in the car and headed for errands and sushi. Except halfway there I decided to ditch the errands and just get sushi. I'm so glad I did. I had a delicious dinner of sushi which I enjoyed while reading my Kindle. I shamelessly stuffed my face with some of the yummiest rolls I've ever had.
After dinner I drover over to the movie theater. I got a tiny bit spooked while parking. I've found I get a lot more scared here, I think simply because it's a new place and I don't know it's safe like I did in my old home. Anyway, after scurrying into the mall where the theater was I grabbed some candy and coke and got cozy in my seat.
I decided to see J. Edgar. By the end of the movie, I was happy to have seen it. There were parts that were slow, but overall he was an interesting character/man. I'd recommend it.
Bottom line: if you are a mama/wife/person, take yourself out every once in a while. I thought I might feel awkward, but I definitely didn't. I got to read, eat my favorite food, sit quietly in a theater and not think about anything related to unpacking/getting settled. It was perfect.
