February Theater with The Mom- The King and I

I can’t believe it- this will make two months in a row that The Mom and I have made it out to a theater venue. Last year we thought it would be a great idea to try to see some production each month and we got in a grand total of ZERO. Hot Damn, mom, we are on a roll!

I’m actually the tag-along on this trip with my parents as they already had plans with their marvelous friends to go see Rogers and Hammerstein’s “The King and I.” Off I drove to meet them at the Welk Resort for the show. This is a great theater, not a bad seat in the house! We all really enjoyed the production, I mean, really- you can’t miss with classic American musicals, can you?

This is the best thing in the world for me, I never want to go out in the evenings. I have long said that I turn into a pumpkin after 7:30 PM. There is a fabulous Mom’s Club at my church, and I usually don’t make our Mom’s Night Out each month. I’m just too pooped! The Husband, thoughtful man, encourages me to get out in the evening with friends, but I rarely do. Even The Boy and The Girl, when they were younger and emerging independents, tried to reassure me that they were fine home alone. I never intended to be the hovering type, I just liked being home with my family, and still do. And actually, I’m pretty sure the kids just want a night at home by themselves to binge watch on Netflix with microwave popcorn… thanks for getting your brother hooked on “Arrested Development,” dear daughter.

Headaches stink.

On the upside, when I am stuck with a two day headache, I have no qualms about doing nothing around the house. I’ll skip errands, tell the family to fend for themselves in the kitchen, ignore the dishes (broken dishwashers stink, too).

Laundry? Bah. I wave my paw at it.

I resorted to the same thing I did the last time I had a headache- pulled up Netflix and plowed through more of Agents of Shield, which is still new to me. If my head is going to hurt, I’m going to binge watch. One more migraine and I’ll have the first season finished!

I’m OK with that.

Headache + Nagging Adolescent = Agents of Shield

This morning brought me a headache, so I am having quiet time watching a show that is new to me:

My son’s friend has been nagging me to watch this show since the pilot aired. Looks great from the pilot! At least it gets the middle schoolers off my back. For awhile. This kid has good taste in movies and is a walking encyclopedia of Marvel Comics info, and has half a dozen more movies lined up for me to watch to bring me up to speed in the Marvel universe!

Best lines:

Doc-“This is a disaster.”

Mike-“No. It’s an Origin Story.”

And can I have Coulson’s special car… was that a Corvette? Yow!! This series will be fun just to see the return of Coulson!
