, I snagged tickets (they weren't comp. like The Damien Rice show) to the September 2nd Staind
show at Mohegan Sun. They are local boys here in Western Mass, so it's going to be a seriously amazing show for me. I'm taking my younger son, who is beyond
exited. This kid is pretty lucky, because not three weeks later we will be seeing The Hush Sound
, Jack's Mannequin
in Hartford. It just worked out that way, I've introduced him to so many bands, when I hit one he likes, I try and bring him to a show. Staind
is one of those bands, Big Time. And as for his older brother....
We are going to NYC in October (I just
bought the tickets for his birthday) to see The Drowsy Chaperone
on Broadway. He is a big fan of Musicals (he's teaching me much) and had a choice of about 20 current shows to see, he chose this
one. It was a hard choice for him because both The Producers
were on the list (his favorites). I haven't been to a play or musical on Broadway since my own dad took me to see The King & I
back when I was very
young (my father passed away when I was 15). Yul Brenner
was The King, it was close to the end of his life, as a matter of fact he passed away not long after we saw him (he had originally starred in the musical in 1956!). I really can't wait.
I love spending time with my kids individually, it's a serious bonding point.
I had yesterday off, and was able to accomplish tons, I cleaned every room in the condo (except my bedroom.. that's a project in itself) , went for an incredibly long power walk, helped my aunt hook up some speakers to her humongous new TV, and came home just in time for my own happy hour. (The drinking thing is starting to become a problem, but that's another post). I wasn't alone, a friend came over.
I twisted my ankle pretty badly today, getting out of the car, my foot sort of got caught and the ankle laid flush with the pavement (the visual is perhaps worse than the actual event). It was pretty painful at first and then I felt fine. I think it is going to be one of those delayed things because it hurts tons at the moment. Hopefully I didn't do too much damage.
Oh yea and about the date the other night, let's just forget I mentioned it.
