I Wanna Go Back...

Saturday, February 28, 2009
to the 80's! No, not in a time machine. Via a concert...an Eddie Money concert to be specific. A few girlfriends and I are going to see Eddie Money and John Waite ("Missing You") tonight. I'm so looking forward to a girls night.

This will be the first time that I'll be away from the girls overnight since June. But more importantly, it's the first time that Henry will be here with the girls overnight. By himself. Usually, our overnight trips involve the two of us, and Emma and Harper stay with a babysitter. But not this time. Apparently, there's a plan, and it's a secret one. No one will tell me what is in store for the remainder of today and tomorrow. According to Emma, it's secret agent material! Should be interesting!

As for me, I will enjoy a solitary, two and a half hour drive to Pennsylvania during which I will listen to my own music...quite loudly at times. I'll stop at Starbucks and get my favorite coffee. It'll be nice to order just one drink rather than three and to be able to get in and out of Starbucks in less than 4 minutes. It's amazing how much time children add to running the simplest of errands.

I'll meet the ladies tonight for dinner and a cocktail and of course, lots of laughs. We'll head to the concert where the good times will continue. Don't forget to check back in a few days for pictures!

I would love to see those guys! I used to sing Take Me Home Tonight by Eddie Money all the time. I also liked Bad English that Tom Waites was in, with terrible long hair I might add! He did a remake of his song with Alison Kruse, and I know she's the bigger name now but it's just so much better when he does it!
