MDH and I spent the day doing some Christmas shopping. This is not a task either of us like but seems to be necessary. We would be happy to give all the money we spend at Christmas to a trusted charity, spend the day eating an easily prepared meal and visiting with family. When this idea is suggested, most people roll their eyes and laugh. It truly is a case of square pegs being mashed into round holes.
Anyway, the best part of shopping today was spending some much needed one-on-one time with MDH. Our schedules seems to keep up from doing this often enough. We had a lovely time browsing through Books-A-Million, Kohl's, Office Depot and Hobby Lobby. We had a nice lunch at Cheddar's and then took in the movie "Fireproof". If you have not seen this movie by all means go. Warning! Take plenty of tissue. This is a low budget flick and has not received a lot of press. Kirk Cameron (Growing Pains) is the lead character in this film and does an excellent job of portraying a fireman with his marriage on the brink of divorce. His father recommends he take "The Love Dare" for forty days. What happens transforms his marriage. If you are looking for a good "date night" activity, this is perfect. If you have seen it, please leave a comment and tell me what you thought about the movie. If you have not seen it, go see it and then leave me a comment and tell me what you though about the movie. If you have no plans to go see it, leave me a comment and tell me why. I just like hearing from you!
Thanks for reading, Rosie.
