Friday list with a Thursday spin   3 comments

I know it isn’t Friday, but today will be WAY more fun that Friday.  So will Saturday.  So you get a full three day list.  πŸ™‚

Today is, of course, a work day.  But I am in Waterville at a meeting, then going to Bangor to pick up the rental car for the weekend – more on why later – and then –

out to dinner and to the new Cross Center to see Cirque de Soleil!  I have never seen them, and am quite excited about it.  This is what A wanted for her birthday in April, how nice that I bought myself a ticket for her birthday as well. πŸ™‚ Her sister L is coming along too, as her (August) birthday present.  We will have a great time!

Friday morning, I will hop in that BIG rental car, go pick up Mom, then drive 400 miles to Connecticut to see niece C graduate from high school.  She finishes up along line of nieces and nephew graduations that we have traveled to – next one is little niece E, who is 7.  πŸ™‚ A has a great-niece who will graduate next year, but she is close by, and we are likely only going to the party piece of things.  But for young C, we are invited to the actual event, which is an honor as there are limited tickets.  It will be hot, and hopefully not raining, so we can be outside.  I will bring a hat and umbrella for shade, and hope it doesn’t go on for hours. I will be knitting on my socks, too.  Never too hot for socks!

Saturday Mom and I will awake in our comfortable hotel and maybe go for a swim before heading off to IKEA in New Haven – the reason for the big rental car!!!  My aim is to get dining room chairs – 6, if I can fit them in the car.  I might have to unpack them to do it, but I think I can.  I am very excited, because A and I rarely agree on things like chairs – how they look, how they feel, and these we did. And they are affordable.  Cheap, even.  And of course, I might find room in the car for a few other things as well.  πŸ™‚

Then it’s time to hit the road, so we will get home sometime Saturday evening.  It will be along crazy couple of days, but it will be fun, and I will get to have quality time with Mom, see two nieces, get new furniture, what could be better?
