The kids are thrilled. And I have the whole weekend just for me.
I was hoping to get to the pool tonight for the first time since my surgery. I've been planning on it all week. Wouldn't you know it that today is the first day that the pool is closed at the gym? Of course. Tonight. After two months of no swimming.
So... I decided to come home and do... nothing really.
Then it occurred to me that I could rent a movie on pay-per-view. This trailer caught my eye:
I ADORED the movie Little Miss Sunshine. I loved its characters and its unpredictable storyline. I loved how I wanted to stand up and cheer at the end.
So, I nuked a baked potato for dinner, sat on my bed and watched this movie.
As a single mom, I was inspired. I giggled. I cried. Again the characters were lovable. Again the storyline took me on a journey of emotion throughout the movie.
I loved it and ironically, it left me missing my girls.
If you get a chance, you single moms and dads out there, watch this movie. See if you start believing...
"You are strong. You are powerful. You can do anything."
