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.
