Not only did I take Saturday off.....when I went to Middlebury.
But I also took Sunday off, to go to Boston.
Two days OFF. NO WORK. Two days of RECREATION.
I know. Hard to believe.
We went to Boston to see a Red Sox game. My husband had two tickets gifted to him. They were great seats, with one huge exception; they were in full sun. And it was over 90 degrees.
Now I knew there was no way that either one of us was going to last for an hour in that heat. We had tried it before, same scenario, same seats. Last summer. We ended up going inside, watching the game on a monitor, and leaving half way through.
So I said to DH, 'we can't do this. Give me those tickets.'
He didn't believe me when I said I was going to find someone who had seats in the shade, and trade with them.
Oh, he believed I would ask.....he just didn't think anyone would take the bait.
Thank goodness he was wrong.
I knew there had to be someone who would do it to be in the 5th row.
And there was.
See the guy in the white shirt??? He initially said no, but the kid with him, to the left of him in the red shirt, desperately wanted to be that close to the action......so he agreed.
They were checking the tickets, and moments later sat down. Two $125 tickets, in the sun, for two $47 tickets, in the shade.
Worked for me.
And coincidentally, it was the 600th sold out game for the Red Sox, so in celebration of that fact, they threw 600 commemorative balls out into the crowds.
And as luck would have it, the kid in the red shirt caught one.
Twas meant to be.
I'm sure he thought so.
Any Red Sox fans out there?
AiD-RIAN. (in Rocky Balboa's voice)
DH found a hotel on Priceline. They just didn't tell him that it was straddling the Mass Turnpike.
It was actually OK, with a couple of exceptions.
But the view was awesome.
We were 10 miles outside of Boston.
The sun was just going down.
We had a lovely dinner at an Italian restaurant called Bertucci's, which we walked to.
And that my friends, concludes my 'weekend off '.......
Today it was back to business, but I must say, though I am not used to taking two days off in a row, it was pretty nice. Really OK.
