I'm getting bummed.

Today we did not make it to church....again. I woke up with something that had me spending more time in the bathroom than I like to spend. I think it might have been we ate at On the Border last night, but whatever it was it caused us to not make it. I'm getting really frustrated because I really want to get back into church, but stuff keeps coming up. Yesterday Michael and I went out on a date! Yes, for real. We left Allisyn with our friends Jeremy and Natashia. It did not get off to a good start. We snuck out and she did fine until she noticed we were gone and then Natashia said she cried for about 45 minutes. My heart broke when she told me that. She said she was playing and walking around, and finally she let Natashia hold her and ended up falling to sleep for a while. Then Jeremy got home from work and they ate and she fussed a bit more while she played, but other than that no big problems.

We went and saw Transformers. It was pretty good. We had no idea what to expect so it was nice. They could have done without a lot of the language, but that is in just about every movie you go these days. I didn't mention what movie I went to see on Tuesday, sorry! I went to see the new Harry Potter movie. It wasn't too bad, but it was really dark. I think the reason I didn't mention it is because I didn't want to get on a soapbox. But I am going to. I really find it disturbing that parents don't research movies more before they take their children. Both movies were rated PG-13. Yet in both movies parents had very young children there. I understand that the new Harry Potter movie is all the craze and all that, but it is not anything young children should be watching in my opinion. I don't think parents spend enough time with their young children explaining the differences between what is really and what is not. I think parents need to do a better job at screening movies for their kids and paying attention to the ratings. They are there for a reason! Ok, stepping down off my soapbox now.

In other news, our house in Tucson almost closed on Friday. Yes I said almost. We are getting so frustrated with this whole ordeal and are praying that they guy gets his head on straight and goes back in on Monday and gets it finished up. He said the payments were higher than he thought they were going to be and that he had to go talk to the bank. AGGGGHHH! He was supposed to close a month ago, but things kept coming up. We really need the house to sell so we can get furniture for our living room!

Allisyn and I are probably going to be heading up to my family's for a few days this week. Michael works his long day on Tuesday and it is his weekend to work next weekend. They are also having VBS this week and I think Allisyn would enjoy it. Well, my wonderful husband is getting lunch ready and I should go help!

Glad you guys got to go out on a date. Jana is going to come stay for a few days in early August and she said she will babysit and let us go out one evening. I'm looking forward to it.

I agree with what you said about parents taking young children to inappropriate movies. It happens way too often and it's sad for the little children that get exposed to things way earlier than they should.

Hope you have fun on your visit!

Joy, I'm proud of your stand against inappropriate movies. I'm so glad my parents have the rule that me and Trent can't watch PG-13 movies. It has really helped me. I will be praying for you.
