I'm Getting Too Old for This

So our big night out is only a few hours away. My mother-in-law has arrived and is already having quality time with Eleanor. Keith and I are going to a Vietnamese Restaurant downtown that we've never been to before. And then it's off to the House of Blues!

At this moment, I think I am equal parts excited and nervous. I'm just getting too old for this! In 2006, I complained about being too old for 2 concerts in 2 days in 2 cities ... but that was a few years and one child ago! Now I think I will be just as worn out by dinner and one concert, local.

But anyway, enough complaining about having a social life. I will stop by the drugstore and buy my earplugs before the concert, as I have been doing for a few years now. But, on the other hand, I will also be out at a concert in the middle of the week and loving every minute of it once I'm there, I'm sure. Last time we saw them at the HOB, we were front and center. Since it's a random weeknight concert, and I've never heard of the opening band (Steel train?), maybe we will get lucky again.

So I am getting more excited than nervous about the concert. But even so, don't expect a blog post first thing tomorrow morning! Because I can guarantee that won't be happening. Unless I stayed up the whole night because I'm just that young and exciting?!?

FYI . . .
Just saw where Gomez is going to be playing in Covington @ The Madison on June 4th.

Well, Anon, you should definitely go! Especially since it's a Thursday night show, I bet there will be a bigger crowd and more energy (I'll post about the concert shortly, I promise.)

If you go, let me know how it is!
