Movie Stars in the Small Town
Posted on 08:49, November 9th, 2012 by Small Town Mommy
The past 2 weeks have been a little rough in the Small Town. We had a hurricane followed by a nor’easter. We have been without electricity for 9 out of the last 11 days and got about 9 inches of snow. While I know we have it better than many, we have been focused more on survival and less on blogging. But, hopefully, we are are back (and better than ever).
Last night, Small Town Daddy and I went to see Jay and Silent Bob Get Old. It’s a comedy performance by Kevin Smith and Jason Mewes from the movie Clerks (and others). It was pretty good. If you are familiar with Kevin Smith, you know he is an amazing story teller and very relatable. He basically said we were a bunch of sissies for getting upset about losing power but I would like to see him live without electricity for 9 days.
We actually left the Small Town ladies home alone. This is the first time that Small Town Daddy and I have gone out alone and left the girls home by themselves. And the house is still standing. And the cats and dog are still alive (granted, there wasn’t a whole lot of animal care required for a 2-hour outing).
I know it means that they are getting older but it is awesome to be able to leave my children without a babysitter. Babysitters cost money. An outing has to be really fabulous to be willing to pay an extra $40 for a babysitter.
We are planning to do this again. After 13 years, we can have a life of our own again. I know it sounds crazy but I think this is my favorite age. They are independent enough to take care of some things themselves but young enough to still need us.
Do you know Kevin Smith? I know he’s not for everyone. Do you like him?
