Some of you out there may not actually know what I am talking about. If your were not allowed to stay up past 9:00pm in 1983 you most likely have never seen this wonderful film. If not you must first read the book by Colleen McCullough (FANTASTIC) and then rent the films at your local neighborhood movie store (or order through your online deliver to your door service like us lazy people do).
Anyway, Saturday at 6:00 arrived. We had already had dinner, I had cleaned the house, and the boys were busy watching some war movie with there Dad. My chance had arrived.
Oh, it was pure heaven. Until the boys movie got over and they wandered into the living room and started asking questions.
What is going on? Why is that minister wearing a dress? How come that lady is all upset?
Just as sweet Meggie is descending the staircase for Aunt Mary's 75th birthday party and her eyes catch with Ralph's, and you can see he is so in love with her even though he is trying not to be, just the sweetest moment ever, my boys say...
Mom, why are you crying? This movie is stupid!
To which I sweetly yell to the other room "Honey, the kids are ruining my fun and aren't letting me cry with my movie".
The boys are ordered to the other room to do push ups for disturbing their mother's mini series watching heaven and are told by their father not to disturb me again. He also explains why girls like to watch silly movies like that. Such a helpful man.
My joy can only be dampened by the fact that my inbox says disc 2 was sent yesterday. With the holiday on Monday I won't get to finish my mini-series marathon until Tuesday at the earliest.
Well, I guess their is a bright side. Just think how much time I can actually spend with my children instead of ignoring them while yelling at the TV screen "No Meggie, don't marry him, he's no good for you'!
