We were originally to make a trip to Windsor for Erika’s soccer game today, but due to unfortunate circumstances…..a parent from the other team passed away……the game has been postponed to a later date.
A trip to Windsor for a 4:00 pm game is an all day event. It is a 3 hour drive and players need to be at the field about 45 minutes prior to kick off time. That means we would have to leave by noon at the latest, the game would have lasted until about 5:30 pm or 5:45 pm and by the time Erika got off the field and ready to leave, it would be at least 6:00 pm and the 3 hour drive back home would mean arriving home by 9:00 pm at the earliest……a long day for sure.
So no game means about 9 hours of day to fill in some other way. Don’t get me wrong…..I have lots of things to do on a Saturday but most of them involve housework, and that’s no way to spend my first Saturday off in 3 weeks. We had a much better idea……let’s go see a movie!!
First things first……a leisurely breakfast at Angels Diner……a Saturday morning ritual for us anyway……..followed by…….Captain America!!
Yes….I do watch Super Hero movies with my husband! 🙂
I have to honestly say I didn’t know who “Captain America” was so I had absolutely no preconceived notions about the character, or what the movie might be about. We picked the 12:10pm movie, assuming it wouldn’t be too busy, and we were right, the theatre was mostly empty. Even though we had just finished eating breakfast we still had to get popcorn…..what’s a movie without popcorn? I have to say I did enjoy the movie, and more importantly…..the air-conditioning……sitting in the cool theatre for 2 hours sure beats standing at a soccer field in 30 degree weather for two hours!!!
I gave the movie a thumbs up!!!
After the movie Erika wanted us to take her to her friends soccer game…..if she wasn’t playing I guess she still needed to get her soccer fix……actually she was far more interested in watching “the goalie” then she was in watching the game. 🙂
The rest of the afternoon was spent relaxing, watching a John Wayne movie (and doing laundry)…….sure beats 6 hours sitting in the car on the road to and from Windsor. I don’t mind the change of plan today….just sorry for the circumstances that caused it.
