Movie Night

Our mission watch one entire movie with no stops, pauses, breaks, delays, interruptions or any other type of postponement.  Seems like a relatively easy mission. Most families probably accomplish that mission weekly but here at Yesteryear Acres - it just doesn't happen. We just have so many things to do and so much work to get done, that movie watching always takes a back seat.  Tonight however - our mission is set.  We are all on board. Everybody is pitching in so that hopefully all our work will be done for the day by the time it gets dark.  We have the blankets on the floor, we have the doggies ready for the evening theater, my daughter made a homemade loaf of Italian Herb bread and is busy making grilled cheese sandwiches.  I think....I think.....this may just work!  I am on popcorn duty so our plan is in full swing. I have a feeling that even though we are all ready for the big movie night, someone......I am not naming names....but someone (whose initials are Mr. Yesteryear Acres) will come in for the movie.  He will take a shower and be all clean for the movie. He will sit down for the movie. He will have a doggie to snuggle with for the movie. He will watch the opening credits for the movie. And then he will fall asleep before the first scene is over. Of course he will deny he is sleeping. Even though he will be snoring. Even though we will all hear him snoring. Even though he will wake up the dogs with his snoring. Even though I won't be able to hear the dialogue through his snoring....Mr. Yesteryear Acres will be WIDE awake, happily enjoying Movie Night. Oh well - more popcorn for me!!!
