Movies

Guest written by our friend Katie Callahan

I have not been to a movie at the movie theater in several months. Actually, now that I think about it, I have not been to a movie at a theater in over a year. I have two children, ages two and six months who are very attached to me and I cannot leave them with anyone for over an hour before all heck breaks loose. My husband asked his mom to keep our kids last night so we could go see a movie and I was so relieved when she agreed to do it. I knew that the kids would be fine for a couple of hours. The only issue was getting someone to agree to keep the kids even though our baby will not take a bottle for anyone but me. I’m so glad we have internet from Kansas City Clear because my husband was able to go online to find out movie times. We were able to go to an early movie and ended up not having to have his mom get the kids ready for bed. It is such a hassle to feed and bathe the kids and put them to bed, so we would just rather do that ourselves. I enjoyed the movie and I do not have to let another year go by before I make it back to the movie theater.

Moving

Guest post written by my buddy Aldo Mays

When we moved into our home this summer I was surprised to see that every other house on the street had one of those signs in their yard with the name of their security system. The neighbors that we talked to said that most of the homes had used home security atlanta to get a security system. They did this when a new high school opened just down the road and multiple break-ins happened in one month. Apparently most burglars are teenagers that sell what they steal for money. I told my husband I did not want to be the only house on the street without a security system. That is just like having a bulls-eye on our home telling burglars to pick our house. I wonder which deters people more the actual alarm system of the sign in the front yard. Or is it best to just have a loud dog that barks when people get near the house? I would rather be safe than sorry, so I plan on having all three!
