TidBits

Sometimes bullet points are just easier.
  • As of May 15 Adam and I have been married for 5 years! We had dinner (a week early) at LJ's and the Kat Lounge which was fantastic! It was nice to enjoy a meal at my own pace and have a glass of wine with dinner... 2 things that don't happen when you dine with a toddler. Where was Chase you ask... being babysat by Grandma! While we have had other babysitters in the past (only 2 but whatever), Grandma holds the distinction of being the first person, other than Adam and I, to put Chase to sleep! Although Grandma did find out the hard way that "Hush little baby" is not a great song to sing to Chase while mommy and daddy are out. As soon as she said "mama's gonna buy you..." Chase freaked out saying "mama?, daddeee?, mama?, daddeee?" A little Grandma magic and he calmed down and eventually fell asleep. I could get used to a willing babysitter!
  • Think he likes ice cream?
  • My MIL and I have a date to see the2009 Tour. I am not the biggest AI fan (to date I have not watched a single episode) but my MIL LOVES AI... specifically Adam Lambert. I think it's going to be a great time (I do like watching music performances live)!
  • Adam should (hopefully) be signing a lease on an office here in town soon. That means he will be spending at least 3 days a week working from Hagerstown. Cutting down on the commuting... the gas... and the general paranoia I have from him being on 70 for 3+ hours a day. WOOT!
  • Chase has been sick (cold) since Saturday morning so we didn't do much this weekend. Grilled out with friends and family, shopped a little (spent my Mother's Day gift from my dad!), dug out the garden (Adam did that) and basically chilled out around the house. No matter what it was, it was good to have daddy doing it with us!
  • Adam and I watched the movie 7 pounds on Sunday night... whoa. Intense movie. Very interesting... very thought provoking. I am not a huge Will Smith fan but he did a great job in his role. The movie centers on death as it's theme, something we are somewhat familiar with. At one point during the movie my mind wandered to the thought of what I would do if Adam died. I thought about having to explain it to Chase. Then I thought about him wandering around the house calling for daddy and Adam not being there to answer. I literally had a breakdown... tears streaming down my face. I had to pause the movie and put Adam's hand in mine. I had to know right then that he was ok. I don't know if I can explain the paranoia that comes with my life but that should give you some indication. I am happy to report Adam is just fine and promises not to die before me.
That's all I have right now. Sorry if the last bullet point brought down the room.

This is such a great overview post. I think I may have to do the same since I am so far behind! Hope Chase is feeling better!

*First of all, i heart the bullet points.
*Second, man that kid is cute doing anything and everything!
*Third, 7 pounds was intense. I watched it with Patrick on the plane a few months ago and had a similar freak out. I think if it must be one of those movies that strikes a cord... if you let it. Any typically movies like that aren't my bag. We certainly both enjoyed it in a very odd way as a way to talk about death and chance. And talked about it we did on and off all of our vacation. I almost think of it as a morbid Sliding Doors. Sorry I'm rambling...I just love movies that get people talking!

I'm glad to hear that Adam promises not to die before you, LOL!! I was feeling so bad for you, and then I was cracking up.

(I still feel bad, but that was pretty funny :))

Love the pic of Chase eating ice cream. Sadie doesn't like it...we're quite worried.

Happy Belated Anniversary! I'm glad you got out for an adults-only meal.

Ice cream! mmm...
3+ hrs of commuting time is a lot. Hope you guys can have more time together when he works in town. I am sure that will be very nice!

I have wanted to watch 7 Pounds but now i'm not so sure...i'm an easy crier!!

Happy, happy anniversary!
So glad you've got a great sitter, makes a world of difference whether or not you can relax and enjoy yourself when you go out.

I'M SO JEALOUS YOU'RE GOING TO SEE ADAM!! Oh, Hon...you have no idea how jealous I am!!

Happy Anniversary...and yes, I loved Seven Pounds. Most people didn't like it, but I thought it was amazing. Especially at the very end, when Woody Harrelson knew who she was...
