For reasons unknown, Yogi bear is only played in the afternoon in my local theater.  We instead went to see "Tangled".  As a lover of the classic Disney animated film, I have to say that this ranks up there with some of the best ones. 

The best part was the company.  I had 3 of my 4 kids with me.  The oldest one preferred to play x-box with is friend, which is cool, I guess.  I was not going to force him.  Best of all T was there with me.

He works on Saturday and came to my house right from his office.  He was only here for a few min before we left to get dinner.  We took the kids to a pizza buffet they like.  I think the pizza sucks, but the kids like it and that's really good enough for me.  If the pizza was better I would probably eat too much anyway.

He sat across from me at dinner.  My daughter begging to sit next to him and my youngest son next to me.  My middle son sat at the far end of the table.  I'm not sure why.  I asked him if everything was OK and he assured me he was fine.

I love sitting across the dinner table from T.  Looking into his eyes fills me with so much emotion, I am sometimes overcome.  My kids were not the best behaved tonight.  Well the younger two were not.  They were teasing and fighting with each other, way too much.  If I was not in the public place I might have knocked their heads together.  T took it all in stride.  Sometimes chuckling how glad he is that he does not have kids of his own.  

In truth, he is really good to my kids and they like him.  That is so important me, since I expect he will be in my life for a very long time.

When we got to the movie, the whole place was empty.  There were really very few people there by the time the movie started.  Maybe 25 or 30.  We sat all the way in the back.  In the top row.  T and I sat next to other with my kids on either side of us.  Once the house lights went down, I crossed my arms on me chest to hid the has I had extended out to hold his.  He did the same.  Normally, in a movie, we will just hold each other's hand, but since I am not out to my kids yet, I thought it best to be discrete for now.  (By the end of the year, I will over that hurdle too.)

After the movie, we came back to my house.  I got the kids to bed and made a couple of batches of my mother's famous peanut brittle for him.  I gave him a big batch on New Year's Eve, but it was all gone now, so I helped him out.

All in all... A perfect evening.

I'm glad I don't have slit eyes. It would be tough for you to find emotion. You probably would need to bring crow bars on dates with me.

Umm, do you think middle son, has figured things out? It might be time to take the bull by the horns and talk to the older ones. Yes, i know the very conversation you dont want to have, but i'm thinking its time.
