Night out on the Town

Hubby and I have talked a lot about going to a play or a concert at the Grand Theater. This past January, I looked up their upcoming schedule of events and was excited to see that they were hosting an Eagle's tribute band on May 13. I was even more thrilled to see that the Hubby was off of work that day and the next. (I mentioned this here.)

The big day arrived. I got done at work right at 5:00 and hurried home. Hubby was ready and waiting, so I changed clothes and we headed to the door. We thought we would even have time to go out for a nice dinner beforehand.

I got to the door and announced, "I almost forgot the tickets." The day before I had thought about getting them out so that I wouldn't forget them. But I knew right where I had put them back in January.

I went to that spot. And the tickets weren't there. Oh, let me look in that one other spot where I am sure I put them. Not there. Nor in the next place I looked nor the next. Hubby came in to help. "Check the safe." That would make sense. Not there. "Check your dresser." I had already checked there. "Can you pull them off of the confirmation email the theater sent you?" No, the email just confirms payment.

I had to ask, "Do you think someone broke in the house and stole them?" That would make perfect sense, since the TV, computer, and other more valuable stuff is still all over the house.

I refused to panic. Worse case scenario - we don't find the tickets and we stay home and watch a movie. And I hope that no one at work remembers where I was supposed to go and asks how the concert was.

I was tearing apart my office for the second time, when Hubby announced. "I found them. Right where you put them for safe keeping."

Of course, that is indeed where I put all important stuff I want to save. I think I am losing my mind.

By now we didn't have time to go out to a nice restaurant, but the China Buffet was ok and is quick. 

The concert? It was good. I was happy with it. Brought back lots of memories, which even though they are happy memories, they make a person get misty-eyed. 

I’ll have to get tickets to another show some time soon.

It's so nice to get to do something special like that. I haven't been to a concert in years. Enjoy your evening sweet friend. Hugs, Diane

Thanks for the comment, Diane. Yes, we all need to get out once in a while.

We are going to be each others back up in Kenya. I have had a few moments on this trip that I truly think I'm losing my mind.

Denise, it is scary to think of the two of us taking on Africa by ourselves. We'll have to make sure one of my Kenyan friends is always nearby.
