To say the least.
The kids and I have all been sick ... I'm the last to recover. I'm in the process to trying to get all the junk out of my chest ... I really think I have bronchitis. Guess I would know if I had went to the doctor. Sigh. Doing that today at 6 p.m. as long as I can find someone to watch my kids.
Kyle has been working really long hours trying to open a new hotel. All I can say is that I bow down to those of you that are single parents!
This past Thursday, I went to see New Kids on the Block. Yes ... it was my third concert on this tour, but really ... who's counting? I'll do anything for love. Haha.
We left town early afternoon to head to Baltimore ... we wanted to make time for traffic and dinner. After dinner, we still had like an hour to kill before we needed to head to the venue. Just then, my sister told me she needed to find a bathroom and she took off running. I went after her and turns out she had vomited and came down with the stomach flu ... just.like.that. Ugh.
After realizing she would not make it through the concert, we called her husband to come pick her up. Mind you we live about 90 miles from where the concert was, so it was going to be awhile before he could get there. Thank God we had that hour to kill before we needed to head to the venue ... we spent our time bonding in the lobby of a hotel, as we needed a bathroom nearby.
It came time for us to head to the venue, but my brother-in-law still wasn't there. I felt horrible leaving my sister there ... sick and stuck in the middle of Baltimore in a hotel lobby. Fun. But she was okay with it and my brother-in-law rescued her just as the opening act was getting over.
Speaking of opening acts, the Jabbawockeez opened for NKOTB. I hadn't seen the show, but they were the winners of America's Best Dance Crew on MTV. They were pretty cool ... I especially liked the part where they broke out in an late 80's/early 90's retro get down.
The NKOTB were amazing, like always. I.love.them. It really is just so nostalgic for me. And I can't wait for the summer tour!
My dad and my step-mom were here over the weekend to visit. We had a nice visit and we wish we could see them more often. They live in Florida about 10 minutes from Disney ... Mason calls them Mickey Mouse Grandma and Grandpa. Ahh, so many grandparents to keep track of ... haha.
And just to prove how not.so.great I've been feeling, I took zero pictures while they were here. Man, I suck.
My sister, brother-in-law and I took the kids to a local park that overlooks National Airport in DC. The flight pattern is such that the planes either take off or land right over the park, depending on the wind that day. It is pretty cool.
