I was a little bit disgruntled last night. We had tickets to the show Rent. And we’ve had them for a long time. Hubby has said all theater season that he wanted to go. So, the show was last night, and I had printed a synopsis of the show for him off of the Rent website so that he could know the story before we went. Well, about three hours before the show, he decides he doesn’t like the story and he doesn’t want to go. Too late for me to find anyone to replace him as company. I should have just gone by myself, but that would have wasted a ticket, so I turned both of the tickets back in as a donation to the theater. They always sell remaining tickets to students for very cheap. So, anyway, a couple people got to see the show for a good price and in excellent seats. I don’t think hubby realizes that I really would have liked to see the show. I rationalize it by thinking he would have been miserable, and that would have spoiled my enjoyment of the show, too.
So, instead we went to a restaurant for dinner with the daughter. Stayed pretty compliant with grilled marlin, string beans and jasmine rice. I did have a piece of grilled bread drizzled with olive oil. That was my only transgression. And I took two bites of daughter’s dessert. My tummy woke me up in the middle of the night. Boy, I can’t get away with anything!
And, now, today we are moving daughter back home. She didn’t stay away very long at all! I don’t even think it has been a month since we moved her out. Things just didn’t work out trying to live with her girlfriend. She is a very manipulative and demanding person. So, anyway, now daughter’s plan is to finally go back to school. She has been out of high school for four years now. She never showed any interest in going to college until now. We’re keeping our fingers crossed that she will continue on this path. She needs a real life. Not just living with Mom and Dad and working for them, too!
I’ve sung my medley. Eat well.
