Two Thursdays ago, I showed up alone at my husband’s office at 3pm, blasted Jonny Lang from my iPhone through the crack in his door, and held up two concert tickets to see our favorite Jonny live at 8pm that night in a city 3-hours’ drive away! It was awesome! I guess I’m still pretty proud of myself for pulling it off.
The tickets were kind of expensive. The fake meetings planned to make sure he kept the date free were a bit tricky. Overnight childcare arrangements for 2boys had to be made. But it was SO worth it. We had such a blast together. The drive was quiet. The Chipotle was great. The concert was perfect. The sleep was uninterrupted. The morning of shopping was productive. Memories made.
I think I just needed to prove to myself that people like us with little kids still do fun, semi-spontaneous, irresponsible things like that. Done.
