It is now 12:25am and I'm upstairs with my daughter Christine because she has to stay up until 2:30 to pick up two of her daughters and a friend from the theater. Why, you may ask? Because they wanted to see the first showing of "Hunger Games" which started at midnight.
Christine is exhausted and told me she will never do this again, and then we laughed hysterically because we both know she will. She would walk over glass and nails for her daughters.
Like George says to Mary in 'It's a Wonderful life', "What do you want? Do you want the moon? Just say the word and I'll throw a lasso around it and pull it down." That is Christine with her children.
Of course right now she is swearing and calling them terrible names about every 15 minutes.
She just said, "I can't even drink beer tonight. I'm giving up beer and sleep, my two main staples in life. That movie better be good."
Since we had to stay up anyway, I asked her to take a picture of me with my new haircut. I figured if there was one that didn't look too horrible I would put it on my About Me thingy. This is what she said, "Mom, we'll do it tomorrow." Why? "No one looks good at midnight, just wait until morning." I told her I didn't see how I could look better than I do now, but okay. Personally, I think she is just being lazy.
