Girls Night and stuff

At 1 pm on Saturday I showed up at Lis's house with Kristin and a bunch of goodies.

By 2 pm we started the extended version of Lord of the Rings. We did take a few breaks along the way, we chatted while we were watching, and we generally really enjoyed each others' company. There were 6 of us and we really had fun. I got home at 4 am. Yeah, we watched all three, all extended. When I told my boss at work he high fived me. Apparently he approved that we watched it as part of a girls night.

Good times, even if I didn't get nearly enough sleep.

This morning we took the car to the shop. The check engine light is off - hopefully for good. And the blinker socket is fixed. Apparently the connection was bad. All that good helped get over a scary bit on the way to the shop... when I was pulled over for having an expired registration. The cop let me off with a warning, thank goodness, and Brent got the car registered online while I was at work.

We're in the clear for now, but that's a bunch of unexpected expenses we didn't want right now. Do we ever want them? Of course not.

On my way home from the office and the mechanic, I passed two boys holding hands. I would guess they were about 17 years old, and they were very obviously boys and very obviously holding hands.

I don't have huge complexes about gay people in Utah. But it was still quite unsettling. You know?

My world is changing. My world. I can deal with changes in other places. But here?

In other news, baby is still kicking up a storm. She's always very active and I guess that's a good thing. I feel like she's healthy.

Baby #1 (Felix) went to the doc last week for shots and a well-child checkup. He now is in the 75th percentile for weight. What gets me is that he's in the 95th percentile for height, and the 98th percentile for head circumference. You mean that 25% of kids his age are heavier?! Really? We did know he had a huge noggin though. :)

I kept thinking while we watched the movie. "I totally lucked out to have a group of friends that would watch these movies as a group. . all three in a row."
