Some Things Are Priceless

Last weekend was very busy.  I woke up on Saturday morning at 7:30 AM to see my granddaughter standing next to my bed.  “Are you ready to get up, Paw Paw”?  She never goes to my wife’s side of the bed because “only Paw Paw’s like to get up early”.  Later in the morning we went to the movies.  Here’s a breakdown of that experience.
·         Three tickets to see “The Hobbit” in 3D and High Definition: $35
·         Popcorn, candy, and drinks: $18
·         Dinner at the Mall Food Court: $25
·         Time with my granddaughter: Priceless
After a full day that included hanging out with Dwarves, killing Orcs, and looking for dragons, Chloe went home about 11:00 PM.  Her Dad picked her up after his office Christmas party.
Yesterday my wife and I drove to Elizabethtown to attend our son’s mass and to hear him preach.  When he is functioning as a priest it is the only time he can preach to my wife and me.  Most of his life we have been preaching to him.  After mass we went to his home and had lunch.  It was a wonderful time but I was very tired by the time I got back home.  It has taken me several days to recover from my fatigue and to catch up with my chores at home.
