Lance and I are going to see the Old 97's!!! I can't explain how excited I am. I love this band, but have yet to see them perform live. I have attempted to see them three times. The first time, I was celebrating my birthday with two friends at La Strada and was supposed to meet Lance later to go out. I have no recollection of what happened that day except my friend Mark shouting at me to wake up. La Strada will do that to you. The next time I was set to go was on my birthday again. A week and a half after Goose was born. For some reason, Lance didn't think going to a concert that soon after his birth would be smart. Who thinks I sulked about that decision? The last time the Old 97's were in town, I was pregnant with Kobra and huge, but that wasn't going to stop me. So we went to the venue, and the show was sold out. I almost died. I was begging Lance to do something, anything to get me in the show. I have a thing about getting concert tickets ahead of time, as in I never get tickets in advance. Usually, it's a pain, but I manage to get into shows by either sneaking in or paying somebody to let me in.
Tonight there won't be any problems at all. My wonderful husband has already purchased our tickets. I feel like dirt due to allergies, but I don't care. I will be there tonight!
