Last night Ivan and I went to see the Broadway musical Pretty Woman! On a Wednesday night, at 7:30 p.m.!
Definitely classifies as an adventure this week, though with our fall weekend + my birthday + now this, this whole past week has felt extra adventurous.
Side note- for Laura’s “one little adventure, one big adventure” rule from her Tranquility by Tuesday book, I’m not really sure what classifies as big vs little. I think a walk in a new park would = a little adventure. Or maybe… I don’t know, buying a sandwich from a new shop. Or taking the kids to a coffee shop for fancy hot chocolate.
I feel like in my case, the Badgers hockey game + fall Dells weekend getaway = a big adventure. Going to a Broadway show also = a big adventure, I think? Although it really just took a couple hours of time…. so maybe technically not? Who knows/ who cares- of course I need to overthink the rule. lol. Anyway, they were both fun and felt like bigger, out of the norm adventures. 🙂 )
The show was great!! Aren’t they always?? I do not think we’ve been to a theater performance like this since pre-covid times, and it was so exciting to be back.
We stopped for a very quick dinner before the show:
At the show, we had just gotten settled into our seats when I heard a voice say my name. I looked up, and one of my best college friends was standing there!!! She and another friend were there to see the show, and she had the seat right next to mine!!! I couldn’t believe it! I hadn’t seen this friend in probably almost 4 years. It was the most ironic thing- out of the great big theater, seriously- we were not only at the same showing but also seated next to each other?!
What a fun and happy surprise. 🙂
End of appointment season… maybe?
I’m also happy to report that I think all these appointments are finally wrapping up! Kind of. It never really ends though, does it.
I had a Dr. appointment on Monday afternoon. (At which I also got both my new covid booster and flu shot, on my birthday, I’d like to point out, to my children who always whine about shots….)
Yesterday just felt like a super full day.
Started very early at 4:45 with getting Asher off to 5:30 a.m. swim practice. I dropped him off at home around 7 a.m. after practice and handed the boys’ school drop-off off to Ivan. I then headed straight to the grocery store for an early morning shop. (Which was AMAZING and I think needs to get regularly scheduled in. Seriously, the store was empty except for a handful of people. The whole experience was 500x better than on a Saturday. Grocery shopping is one of my least favorite “chores”, but Wednesday morning at 7:15 a.m. was perfectly blissful.)
After that + work the rest of the day (no workout happened, boo…), I had an eye doctor appointment at the end of the day. NOT a fan of getting my eyes dilated. Ugh. It’s just so annoying to not be able to see right for a few hours!
Then, dinner + the show! It felt like a lot of things for one day. Ha. My eyes were getting heavy during the last act as it was pushing almost 10 p.m. before it ended.
Today I have one more appointment- the piano tuner is coming at 11:00. But at least it’s at home, and I can just keep working through that.
Then- no appointments on the calendar until a November 7th ortho for Ethan!! And I only see one other dr. appt for him in November.
I get so burned out by constant schedule interruptions, so I really, really hope I can avoid any other appts for a bit. Although, I do need a haircut/ color…. so, I should probably schedule that soon. (And that’s a long one….).
I am grateful for the TALENT of the actors and musicians in Broadway shows. So amazing.
