Then I came home and had a breakdown and a fight with Anders and went to bed sulking and sad.
I feel much better today, though. Anders loved his birthday presents and we made up after a good talk.
The house is relatively clean, laundry is in, Anders is grocery shopping for lasagne and salad fixings (and birthday cake) and his family is all arriving around 6 for dinner.
Martin and Karin just watched James and the Giant Peach twice in a row (we're in the middle of reading the book at bedtime) and when Martin came to tell me so, I said, "I think that's enough for one day," and he proceeded to explain to me how when you're having fun time goes really fast, so even though they watched it twice and it's a long film, it seemed like it went fast because they like it so much. :)
And man, I just watched the trailer for Van Helsing online and WHY, OH WHY didn't I insist on going to see that instead?!
Happy Belated Birthday Wishes to big_bubba!

More Reasons For Feeling Better: At the grocery store just now, Anders ran into Emily, one of the women I was out with at the movie last night, and she told him I had made the right decision to leave when I did, as the movie went from bad to worse.
*Dinner conversations about vibrators and shaving yourself just not being my style.
