When you are picking a movie or show to watch do you compromise with your partner or do your own thing? Maybe you both like the same genres ... Hubby and I have a longstanding ritual of taking turns. He picks a sci-fi or a film by Ridley Scott or Michael Mann and I opt for the relationship or romantic comedy films. But without argument, we alternate. Although he pointed out that he thinks he may have accumulated a few more points considering he'd seen two chick flicks in less than two weeks. He may be right. He's a trouper though ... when we went to see my daughter in a university performance of the Vagina Monlogues, he was the only male to sit through it. I laugh every time I think of it!
So today I am just savouring the final few days that will officially mark the end of this year's holiday season. Tomorrow I will dismantle Christmas and help Kidlet apply to universities. I just felt a slight breeze of change waft by ... There is alot to look forward to and it will be a year jam packed with monumental milestones, dreams fulfilled, adventures, firsts, beginnings and no doubt endings. Life will look different by next year - and I for one wonder what awaits!
There was heartbreak we didn't anticipate and events we couldn't have imagined. Still, it wasn't all bad. So maybe there was a message in it all. The future was calling us and no matter what, there was no turning back now.
