Miss T and I made it to her 10:30am solo practice at dance. But not before a migraine threatened to ruin me. Nipped it though thank GOD and Advil.
Billy Joel is coming to Raleigh on March 3rd...so, lil ol me headed down to the local ticketmaster to book "accessible" tickets since Mr Man has to have Isle seat so his right leg can extend. (4 knee/leg surgeries) Got some sweet tickets!
Then Miss T and I got a bright idea .....let's hang the outside lights while Tom is gone and surprise him when he gets home tomorrow night. Lo and behold my little scaredy cat kid CLIMBED THE LADDER and hung the lights!!!!!
WTG MISS T!!!!!
Then I wrapped the porch lights and hung 2 new apple/cranberry swags. If I could get a decent picture I should have to share it with you.
Tom likes those old big lights, the C9 size bulbs.
I like the little ones.
Then we both had headaches......so much for her going to the birthday party. Plus we were both tired. I asked Nanny if she'd like to go out to dinner and of course she said YES. Ruby Tuesday's....Tara loves their ribs. We had a nice dinner, then decided to go by the "World's Largest Living Christmas Tree" .... an old Live Oak that they've been decorating in downtown Wilmington for a gazillion years. Of course I did NOT have my camera with me.
Tom has called ----- he's having a great reunion with his daughters. It took him FOREVER to get out of NC because of the wind storms on Friday. He drove up to Raleigh early (left about 5:30am, a 2 hr drive, for a 10:30am flight)) only to find out they cancelled his flight....then they got him on another one to Charlotte with a layover.
When he got to Charlotte..........they cancelled that one! Oh he was fit to be tied. (Charlotte is a 4hr drive from us.) They put him on "stand by" for the 2:30pm plane and "confirmed" on the 4pm. He finally arrived in Newark NJ at 7:15pm!!! 13 hours after he had left home!!!!!!!!! He could have drove there from home in less time! Got the rental car and drove over to Long Island.....geeeesh! Tired and hungry. All that for one hour and 35 minute flight.
Let's hope the flight & drive home on Sunday (2:30pm from Newark HELLO! up there!!) is less eventful. I'm glad it wasn't me...this is one of the reasons I don't wish to fly. Always at someone else's mercy and command. Gimme my keys and let me drive and stop when and where I please.
