It's a rare thing for the kids to be away, since we live far from family, but as they make more friends, it's easier to ship them off. Even better when they go to a friend's house who's happy to let them sleep over. Huzzah! (Will definitely have to return the favour). I was looking forward to a day on the town with my husband, unfortunately, he wasn't able to make it and it was too short notice to find any friends for my informal plans. Rather than stay home and wallow in my disappointment, I decided turn a date day into a solo birthday adventure.
The first stop was the Everything To Do With Sex Show. I went to the show when it first started 16 years ago and have been a couple of times since, but fell out of the habit over the years. I decided to remedy that and excitedly bought tickets a month in advance. I was still a little sad walking in the front door, but was immediately cheered up by some lovely ladies who invited me to join them in their ballpit. Turns out, the Oasis Aqua Lounge they were promoting doesn't actually have a ballpit, but I hope they will consider my suggestion for adding one.
Drove home through a beautiful storm and made it home before the coach turned into a pumpkin. Happy birthday to me ^_^
