Note this on your calendar: For the first time since 2002, Pdaddy and I are alone, with no possums in the house. The kids went camping with the grandpossums. They will be spending four days in the high Sierras.
I have to say...this is so freakin' bizarre!! Over five years of having children in your home every day and every night...and then to have none. I am going bonkers. The house is so quiet. We ate take-out and actually took an hour to do so (as opposed to the normal routine of trying to take bites in between cutting meats/veggies and talking to/listening to the chatter of four children. We've watched a movie and played an hour of Wii. Now what? LOL
The movie was watched was "The Bucket List" with Morgan Freeman and Jack Nicholson. It was a great movie until they started getting heavy handed with belief and faith. Summation: both men have terminal cancer and they make a list of things that they want to do before they kick the bucket. Being that Nicholson's character is rich, they travel the world and do things that most people only dream of doing before they die. In the private jet, flying to India, Morgan Freeman starts talking about his faith. And, I shit you not...it was a typical pattern. Here's a paraphrased description:
Morgan: You don't believe?
Jack: No. The idea that there's something mighty in the sky who can make our diseases go away? No.
Morgan: So, 95% of the people on this planet are wrong?
Jack: 95% of the people on this planet are often wrong.
Morgan: But, what if that 95% is right...what will you do?
It was a total set-up for Pascal's Wager. Disappointing.
Anyway...I hope everyone is doing well. Thank you for sending P2 birthday wishes.
