Sort of Quiet Fourth

Our 4th was not much to write home about. We decided to go see a movie, which we haven't done in I don't even remember the last time we were in a movie theatre. We decided on Hancock and went to the first showing of the day at 10 am thinking that it wouldn't be very crowded. HA! We had to sit in the very front where you end up with a crick in your neck and a feeling of nausea from being too close to the screen. There were a few seats up top but I refuse to try and crawl over people to get into a seat, mainly because I know I'll have to pee at least once during the movie and don't want to have to crawl back over said people. Hmm, maybe this is where those Depends might come in handy.

I couldn't believe the price of admission-it's up to $10.00 now for regular admission. No wonder we just wait until everything comes out on dvd!

The movie was entertaining and enjoyable even though I did have to get up to go pee and missed a few minutes. That's why I like watching them at home, you can pause for potty breaks.

So, after the movie we stopped for a sandwich and stopped at Target to get some bubble wrap and tape and stopped at Home Depot to get a shop vac for my studio so I'll quit sucking up things that should't be sucked up in the regular vacuum-like bits of metal and solder.

The rest of the day was uneventful-I messed around on the computer and packed some orders. Keith broke out the scotch and hacked up some trees in the back yard, then promptly fell asleep after dinner. The loud party and fireworks across the street didn't seem to bother his nap any. The cats were all like 'WHAT THE HECK IS GOING ON OUT THERE!?!' Buddy hid in the garage a few times.

So, another 4th come and gone, now we've got the rest of the hot hot summer to look forward to.
