Most of my weekend was spent cleaning. I scrubbed, mopped, vacuumed, dusted, swept, filed, and threw away unneeded/unwanted things. After everything was cleaned to my satisfaction, I decided to reward myself with something fun. I settled on the idea of a movie. I figured it would be a nice relaxing reward for all my hard work. After some investigating I discovered my local dollar theater was showing Confessions of a Shopaholic. I was thrilled. I had always intended to see the movie and it was only going cost a dollar!
Sunday after church, I headed to an early showing of Confessions of a Shopaholic, by myself. Yup, I went to the movies by myself. It was my first time, and it wasn’t half bad. Actually, it was great!
I’ve been the movies many times, and I’ve always seen “that person”. You know the person I’m talking about, the one sitting in the back row, with an oversize bucket of popcorn. When I was young and silly, I always felt sorry for “that person”. I would think to myself…they had to go the movies by themselves, that’s so sad. Well, fast-forward about ten years and now I’m “that person”. Except, it wasn’t bad, it didn’t feel awkward, and I actually enjoyed myself. I have to say going to the movies by yourself is pretty empowering; talk about feeling like an independent woman! I mean, if you can go the movies by yourself you can pretty much do anything, right?
It was an enjoyable Sunday afternoon. By the way, my movie only cost $.50! I was pretty pumped at all the money I had saved. I was so pumped that I went to Target and bought a new purse.
