A few things I'm looking forward to

Occasionally, just for laughs, I will check airfare to go home to Houston for a visit.  The other day, out of curiosity, I checked the fares during Man-Child's Spring Break.  Only to be pleasantly surprised by the price.  Granted, I would have to drive to Charlotte to fly non-stop but completely doable.

I asked Man-Child if he wanted to accompany me - shockingly, my travel buddy did not seem very excited; he has no idea what he is missing out on.  So, I decided that at that price, I NEEDED to go.  And, as usual, The Husband had absolutely no interest... *sigh*

I texted my dear friend to make sure the dates worked for her - they did.

So I booked the tickets and am currently headed home in about three weeks for about 5 days.

Between the anticipation of this trip and the lovely tulips that I bought this afternoon, I can almost ignore the fact that the weather forecast for the next ten days is nothing but rain and clouds...almost.

I swear the rain has been unrelenting for the last few months.  I recall reading an article at the end of December that declared that we had exceeded the amount of rain in Seattle by the end of 2018.  I already know that days on days of gray, gloomy, rainy days bring me down; but now I am hearing from others that aren't usually so affected that they are being brought down by the weather also.

I'm seriously beginning to think I need a solar lamp.  

The only other thing that I'm anticipating this weekend is that Man-Child and I are attending a play on Sunday that we are both anxious to see - Clue: The Musical.

Clue is quite simply one of Man-Child's favorite movies of all time, actually the entire family loves this movie.  It is, of course, based on the board game.  So when we discovered that a local theater was putting on the show, we promptly bought tickets.

It's a very campy show and so fun - I expect that we will completely forget about the rain while we enjoy the show, I hope.


  1. It's amazing how much rain can affect anybody. When it doesn't stop, you begin to feel moldy yourself. Congratulations on deciding to travel just for the heck of it! And that play sounds delightful. Yep, it's looking up on your end of things, Gigi. :-)

  2. I think the musical sounds like fun !
    We just have bitter cold here. We had indoor recess all week long. It wasn’t pretty

  3. Never heard of the movie 'Clue'. Familiar with the game. Must check out the movie. Sounds so fun to travel for kicks! I have friends who live in Dallas. I found myself pushing Eddie to apply to SMU just so I could visit them. He considered it but never actually applied. Mom's social travel plan foiled.

  4. I'm with you on all this rain! ENOUGH ALREADY! Today looks promising though.....
