Day 11 Getting Healthy IS my job
Spending time is a good investment
It is after midnight, so technically it is now Saturday.
I have been away from home, so I am just a little behind.
24 hours ago I was sitting in a theater waiting for the midnight showing of the latest Harry Potter installment.
I was sitting there in the company of 4 teenage gentlemen.

Jon, Dan, Matt, and Matt
Three of the boys are preacher's kids (mine included), three wore converse sneakers (mine did not).
I was perhaps one of maybe less than a dozen "adults" in the theater. We were in theater 16, and I don't know how many theaters there are there since I am unfamiliar with this particular cinema, nor do I know how many had Harry Potter screening. I do know that nearly every theater there had it playing. Amazing.
Although I have been driving minimally due to my back, because I was the adult, and it was after midnight, I was the driver. Tonight, or rather these wee hours, my back is unhappy with all the sitting in stadium seats, sitting in a car, and sitting in a theater.
I did receive "Thank yous" and hugs from all the teens. I was more than happy to spend the time at the movies with them. We got back from the movies about 3:30 a.m. I slept pretty well, but am still exhausted.
It was great to see my friend while we were out in RI as well, and had the chance to visit some, and discuss their son's college plans. Mine is the only high school junior in the bunch.
Spending time with friends in person, and on social networking tools, is a great way to spend time. It is time well spent, it is an investment in friendship.
