<p>OK, as a concession to everything that's going on I am (probably) not going to the midnight show. Instead, my husband is dropping off my two oldest kids and myself at the 10 AM show tomorrow morning-- I declared it a homeschooling holiday months and months ago-- and then picking us up. The if I feel up to it, just he and I are going ot to dinner that night and seeing it again. :D I am so excited that I made it this far, especially when everyone kept bleating "twins come early" like it was some kind of infallible doctrine.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Anyone else going? Anyone braving the midnight show?</p>

<p>I'm going to be picking my DH up at midnight.  We're thinking of seeing it around 7 PM or whenever we get all our running around done.  Gotta renew our lease, go shopping, clean the house, all that boring adult stuff.  He wanted to go to Red Lobster but I'm still not too sure about that, lol.  I'd rather have Arby's or order pizza.</p>

<p>Dh's birthday is saturday and we were going to go friday night. That isn't going to happen now :( Hopefully I will get good news tomorrow am and will go sometime next week!</p>
<p>It is funny. Dh has not read one of the books. But he and I have seen every single movie either the midnight showing or the day it opens and he was almost as excited about the new movie as I was.</p>

<p>Are you still homeschooling? You must be super-mom, I've been so lax with it lately. I keep telling myself that the kids will not turn into brain-dead zombies if I don't do school when I am miserable and grouchy.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Back on topic...we're definitely not going to the midnight show, there's just no way! I would like to see it in the theater, though. We might try for the weekend after Thanksgiving. My MIL was kind enough to watch the kids this past Sunday for a date and I wouldn't want to ask her again too soon. None of our kids are old enough to see it yet.</p>

<p>We're kind of doing "2 days = 1" homeschooling this week. We really pared it down this year, and we started in June, so we have 99 of our 180 days, which is driving my OCD nuts. I might make them do one more day's worth just to make it an even 100.</p>

<p>No way am I doing the midnight thing.  My body wants to sleep by 9, with a bout of insomnia between 1 and 2.</p>
<p>I am waiting to hear from my aunt, who is always my HP date.  Dh and the kids aren't really into it.<br>

We're only going to make it to 85 days by delivery (knock on wood), and it's killing me not to be able to say we'll be half way done!</p>
<p>My 12yo is keeping up just fine.  My 8yo is getting by on a minimal schedule.  And my 7yo, well, I don't have to report on her and she's reading plenty, so who cares?  ;-p</p>

<p>LOL! That's about how I feel-- my 11 is pretty much his own cruise director and is shockingly self-motivated. My 9 is less self-motivated but muddling through. And my 7 is learning to read from Reading Eggs. *hangs head in shame*</p>

<p>DH and I have date plans for Sunday, brunch at a new restaurant which has some kind of New Orleans style beignets (read donuts), that sound great. And then, a matinee of Harry Potter. I'm excited, as we've either been cleaning out the house, entertaining family or not around on the same weekends for the past while. And he never does brunch, which is one of my favorite meals, you can go to a fancy restaurant and it's pretty cheap because it's before noon.</p>

<p>Glad your hubby is back WifeofAnt! My brother heads out to Afghanistan tonight.</p>

<p>I'm home!!!! It was so good and I am so happy the babies cooperated so I got to see it. My movie curse held, though, and despite the fact that there weren't more than 20 people in the theater, these obnoxious movie-talkers sat right behind us and wouldn't shut up. I finally yelled at them, but even that felt kind of good.</p>

<br><br><p>*Sigh*  Same here.  It was a great movie... except for the little girl crying for her mommy through most of it!!  (not exaggerating, she didn't stop for more than 10 seconds for the whole first hour of the movie)</p>

<p>We got home a few hours ago. The theater was packed full. The movie was great but my older 2 kids were getting a little antsy by the end.</p>
