after heading out of town early this am to Christmas shop for the kids, (leaving them at home to fend for themselves) we decided to treat them to the movies tonight. it was a relaxing end to a tiring day. shopping is fun but boy am I worn out. the hubby and i hit starbucks first thing and even had a nice dinner (alone) at red lobster. even though it's nice to get away for awhile without the kids, i sure like the coming home to them as well.
