On My Way To You
Last night we went to the movies and saw Iron Man.  It might be my childhood surrounded by comic book loving brothers talking, but I thought it was great.  Good story, great special effects, good ending.  And I am kind of happy for Robert Downey Jr, it's nice to see him do well and be healthy.

Poor Jeff, right before the movie started I suddenly wanted popcorn.  This despite having eaten dinner and dessert (see below).  So he got up and got me some even though he loves previews.  So he would feel like the trip was worthwhile I ate it all.  I'm selfless like that.

Did you know that Wendy's has mix-ins for their frostys?  Cookie dough.  I'm just saying.

I recently added a spam filter to my blog.  So if it commenting doesn't seem to be working for you it might be the filter but I do get the comments.  I just have to approve them before they show up.

Today is my day off.  I dropped Keegan at school and then went by the jeweler to pick out a chain for the initial charm I got for Mother's Day.  I had them write it down for Jeff so he can get it and the baby's initial after he arrives.  I have never really seen his work so I am going down to see his office and have lunch with him.  I will probably do it again once the baby is here.  I think Jeff is more eager for the baby to arrive than I am.  I don't think he is coming early because he seems plenty happy in there.  Now that I feel better I can wait as long as it takes.  Okay not like 42 weeks or anything.
