"iron man" gets two thumbs up!

Posted by justanotherstayathomemom on May 19, 2008

hubby is on vacation again this week…so off went the newt to daycare while his parents went and saw “iron man”. drew was with us, of course, and made all kinds of noise, of course. i had to hold him the last hour of the movie cause he was noisy. not crying, just making a growning sort of noise (similiar to the sound he is making now) i only missed like 2 mins of the movie, so i was happy! great special effects, great plot, somewhat predictable (i mean he is a comic book hero, so no worries about his sudden demise) and oh, boy…does robert downey jr look goooood!!

anyway…we look forward to seeing “indiana jones” on thurs or fri…when the child’s away, the parents will play!!! i read in mag article that harrison ford still fit into his old costume, and that he was very please with himself!

hubby has a whole laundry list of things to do, but of course only 1 or 2 will get done…what with daily naps and lots of emails to send out (chief duty calls), i am happy if my curtain rod gets hung…anything else is bonus.

i am coming up with ideas for summer time fun for the littles…hubby and i talked about swimming lessons for 3 yr old and soccer/t-ball/football as well, courtesy of the YMCA. ( i applied for thier financial aid which would allow us to join for less…waiting impatiently to hear back cause they have a rockin’ water park included in the membership!) also while at the movies today, i found out they have a movie club for the summer….10 movies for 5 bucks…i think we will try it out…if newt pays no attention and runs around like a crazy, then i am only out 5 bucks…it’s worth the gamble. i am planning on park time, but we will have to do that early, as it gets really hot really fast in the south. we have a 10ft long blow up pool in the back yard…that will give us hours of entertainment. the blow up pool i REALLY want is this one

don’t those look like fun!!!!!

gotta win the lotto first!!!! or wait till end of summer clearance? or ebay…i dunno….hubby of course thinks i am crazy…he just rolled his eyes when i showed him the commercial! i don’t even know if either of these pools would fit in my small backyard, but i can dream, can’t i????

other than parks, pools, movies and the y…i don’t know what else we will do. it sounds like alot, but i already know there will be those days of winning and complaining that there is nothing to do and that i am sooo bored. i’m sure newt will get tired of it before long….(get it? i’m the one winning, not the 3 yr old…i’m trying to be funny, hahahahhaa)….

hubby is already being head-hunted for jobs, apparently his field is extremely hot right now and there are not enough people to fill all the positions. already getting an idea of how much he could make his first year in practice…it’s very exciting to say the least (hey, maybe i can afford that blow up slide/pool after all!!, i just gotta wait another year, hahahaha)

peace
