That takes the cake!
In addition to grocery shopping and cooking for a meeting we are having this weekend, Savanna and I cleaned the laundry room out and threw half the stuff away that was in there. I don't know why but I am motivated to clean a bunch of stuff out and re-organize. I have a new thought. Every time we have ever moved, and I have thrown half our stuff out and packed up, I have thought, "why didn't I do this a long time ago?" It's such a better way to live. Well, we are not moving. Far from it - I'm real settled here. But I am just tired of stuff we don't need. It's hard to get rid of things b/c Larry is such a pack rat, but I am able to get it done when I persevere, even though I have to sneak sometimes in throwing a few things away! :) Anyway - we are doing a lot of cleaning and re-organizing.
Tonight I had a girls night out. I went with Cathy, Misty and "Grandma" (Misty's) to see Evening. What a great movie! We loved it. Lots of tears. The theater was mostly filled with women but a few men. The funniest thing happened at the end on the way out. When the credits came up and we were leaving, we heard a man say, "I've seen a lot of movies in my time, but that one takes the cake!" He didn't mean it in a good way. He was frustrated. He obviously had NO IDEA what this movie was about. He was clueless. We started laughing and left and just couldn't get over his attitude. We went to Panera afterwards and were still laughing going, "that takes the cake!"
We got to Panera just as they were closing. They had already locked the door but they opened it back up and let us in. We ordered pastries and coffees, and sat for a while and ate and talked, mostly about how we related to the movie. Good stuff...it took the cake!
