Life As We Know It

It really has been a weird weekend.  I'm not really even sure where to start with telling you about it.

Friday night...I had a sweet date with my 2 year old.  Not too sure if I ever wanna eat peanut butter again...if that tells you anything!!!  We went to this restaurant called "PB & U"..you guessed it. 

Everything on the menu is about peanut butter!!!!

It was so fun.

But then again.... I wouldn't expect anything less than fun with my little man.

This morning-I woke up with intentions of going to church...but ended up at the movie theatre.

I really didn't know what to expect.

I mean, I've read many reviews on this movie....but needed to see it for myself.

In my life, my husband isn't much of a movie guy.  That's ok though. Cause he's got a lot going on.  And a movie isn't on that list.

So.......if it's something I wanna see-I'm on my own. 

I wasn't too sure what to think about this one.  In all honesty-I ended up not seeing the end of it. 

I got a text with about 10 minutes left that scared the heck out of me. 

Boston bumped his head-and me as a parent jumped up immediately.  And there was NO ONE in the theatre.  Poo.  Turns out he has quite the shiner.  But his daddy is great and capable.  He's fine.  I mean, when I returned home-he didn't even mention his boo boo.

Back to the movie.

That put me in massive tears.

So.... I paid my $6 to see my Sunday Matinee.  And as I sat there...watching the movie... I found myself bawling my eyes out.  So hard.  So much. 

It started out oh-so-fun.  Living life like the 'normal newlywed couple'...

Then life took a turn for the worst.

The couple in the movie?  They died.

They were in an accident-that killed them.

But wow.  They were both sooo smart.

They had it all planned out.  They knew who they wanted to take care of their beautiful daughter.

But the funny part was.... the couple they picked-were totally not ready for that role.

I TOTALLY could put the two people in my life that would fit that bill.

Makes me laugh just thinking about it....

Then.

But not now.

The couple that I would put my child in their arms?  Uh. No. Her??!?!?!?  Yes... HIM!?!?!?!? Not so much.

But then I find myself going-what the heck am I thinking about?!~?!?~?~?~?~?~?

NO reason to think that way.

My husband is really busy right now.  It's that time of year.  I totally understand it. 

So I can't be mad at him.  Nor can I be mean about it.

His uber hard work pays our mortgage...and being ugly about his lack of interest gets me NO WHERE.

I mean.. the guy is a DIE HARD sports fan.  He loves it.  And everything that goes along with it.

And that's totally ok.  Everyone deserves something they are passionate about.

I use to be passionate about many things.  But since becoming a mom?  I pretty much have ZERO idea what I'm passionate about.

I mean really. 

I thought about it today...and I'm just bewildered about it.

And it makes me feel bad.

But ya know what?

It SHOULDN'T.

You should NEVER feel bad about where your heart and thoughts are.

EVER.

Life changes. Every single second of the day.

Same as the movie.  They 'picked' their people.  But yet-did they really?!?!?!?!

If I were to tell you who I wanted to raise my kid the DAY I got married...versus today?  NOT the same people.

But in reality....... it's not about that.

It's about happiness.  That's all.  Happiness.

Are you happy?  Please share!~
