Poetry quickfire and a temporary "parole"
That cold air grabbed my spark
and spun me in its dance
as I shook off my tired
to let a chill elevate
and release the cobwebs
of nine o'clock ordinary.
See what a quick walk on the driveway on a freezing December day can do for me. That's a jump start. Love how the cold air instantly puts me into awake mode. I need that burst these days.
At 1 p.m. today, there will be a very unusual event happening in my home. My husband and I will leave the premises (without the children who will happily be with Grandma) to go on an actual (drum roll) date! We haven't gone on a date in 5 years. I know, we let too much time go by. We're going to see Sherlock Holmes this afternoon. I'm looking forward to see Robert Downey, Jr.'s spin on this iconic character. I'll give a little movie and date review for you tomorrow :)
I wonder if I will jump every time I hear a kid call "Mommy". I'm not used to being without some kid pulling on me or whining for something :) I'll just have hubby asking for more popcorn. Hopefully, he won't fall asleep in the movie like he does at home when we watch one:) I hope there is enough action to keep him interested in the story line. We'll see. I'll just be glad to be stress free and relaxing for 2 hours or so.
