A garage-sale weekend

We actually hosted a garage sale this weekend - Saturday morning, bright and early. I can tell you it was no way near as fun as going out to the sales, but I was happy to get the stuff out of the house (and the money into my pocket for our upcoming trip - woo hoo!).

Seth's parents came up to visit for the weekend, so aside from the garage sale we got lots done around the house as we often do when they are around.

Friday night they kept him company while I went out with the girls for dinner/drinks and the Sex and the City movie premiere. I had an absolute blast out at dinner, enjoyed a few cosmos (mmmmm - alcoholic goodness) and the movie was okay. (They didn't screw it up totally, but it was a little less cheeky and sardonic than the show - which made me a little sad). Oh, and can I just say - a woman brought her 3 YEAR OLD DAUGHTER to the show. The 10:30pm show. The movie that used the word 'fuck' as a noun, adjective and verb. And had several full frontal scenes. It pissed me off (and distracted me) the entire time. Wow, I've turned into a judgmental mother...

In other news - Maddie (as of this Wednesday) is now waving goodbye to people (when she feels like it, not always on cue, but still...). She also gives out high-fives. Very rarely leaves you hanging. I love it.

We also think she is working on her first word (no, not dada). Kitty! Except it comes out sounding more like "it-theeeee". The. Cutest. Thing. Ever.

That started on Saturday and now it's a running battle over what she says more, 'dada' or 'kitty'. That's right. Still no 'mama' anywhere near her vocabulary. I'm so being shafted.

Four more sleeps until we board the plane for Ireland. I'm starting packing tomorrow. My goal is one suitcase for both of us. One big-ass suitcase, but one just the same. Yeah. We'll see how that goes...

I can't stand it when people bring their kids to totally inappropriate movies. Example: W went with some friends to see Ghost Rider when it came out. Sitting a few seats down from us was a mother and her three-year-old and six-year-old. I felt like telling her, "You do realize the main character in this movie is a guy with a FLAMING SKULL???" The scene where he first becomes the Ghost Rider was pretty graphic, and all I could keep thinking was, there is no WAY I would let Caitie see this. I don't understand some people, I really don't.

Have a great trip to Ireland! I hope everything goes well :)

Take care!

Agree whole-heartedly about bringing young kids to adult movies! Not only is it inappropriate for the kids, it's inconsiderate to the other movie-goers!

Have fun on your trip!!

Completely agree with you about bringing young kids to adult movies. We were at the movies for mommies last week and some woman was there with kids who looked to be two or three years old. And the movie was Indiana Jones -- although no Sex and the City, still not appropriate for a two year old.
