Amping Up For a Weekend Of Fun

Posted on: June 28, 2016

Back in December Groupon offered Tickets for 

Journey/ Doobie Brothers/ Dave Mason 

and I bought them for my husband as a Christmas Present. 

Well Friday is the big night and I spent tonight on You Tube getting in the mood.

As I was about to turn 50 , my husband I began talking about bucket lists and one of the big 

things we decided was that we wanted to start seeing some of the old bands before they were gone. 

This coming concert surely meets that goal as this is 70’s Rock n Roll we all grew up on. 


Check out their long hair and all those mustaches, lol..

Should be a fabulous concert with this Trio, sure to bring back feelings of 

my youth and days when my father who died in 1979 was still with us.

Dear Readers, I hope you enjoy this little sampling of what I’ve been doing tonight for the past few hours checking out a lot of videos and getting myself prepared for a fun night with friends.  

Today was a pretty good day that began with a trip to the bowling alley to use our Summer Pass that gives us three games each day for the price of just $31.95.  We pulled into the parking lot and all said , “oh No!” at the same time… The first thing to greet us was the sight of 5 yellow school busses which were empty except for the lone driver in each one.  We went inside to ask when these kids in the city summer camp program were going to be leaving the premises.  The noise level was beyond what we were prepared for and we got our answer and high tailed it out of there .  

We just flipped our plans for the day and headed to BJ’s for a few groceries we needed.

It was nice and quiet when we returned at 12L30 just as the last two buses were loading up to leave.

So we learned not to use our Summer Pass on Tuesday or Thursday mornings, lol…

In the afternoon it was all about cooking as my son home from college made us his potato soup that he tried for the first time this year living in his first apartment.  I spent the time making Veggie Frittatas and the Oatmeal/Banana Power Bites to help myself and DH stay on track for the week…

Thank Goodness I have a long island in the kitchen as my daughter decided this was the time and day , that she too needed to bake Pumpkin/Nutmeg/Applesauce treats for the dog…

A silly rainy day in the kitchen with my kids was so wonderful as I realize that times like this will be disappearing as they all go their own ways.  

And you should have seen me dancing as my daughter put a music channel on cable.  I definitely burned a lot of calories during my afternoon that led to evening of baking cause I didn’t finish until 7:30.   

Just for fun, I will leave you with my stroke of Mom Genuis that happened today..I see thngs that can help my teen bowler, yet he doesn’t appreciate my wisdom and actually gives me nasty looks and gets all moody… I know what I have to say is of value, cause I am one smart woman and a great observer, but what I was doing was obviously not working… So when my daughter ran out to get a few groceries for her doggie treats, she picked me up a little notebook that I can carry in my purse.  The plan is to write down my helpful observations and discuss them with them when we aren’t at the bowling alley and he is much more receptive… Problem solved and he loved it… My saying,  “Give me a Problem and I’ll Jump at the chance to find a Solution! ”  Now I am just bragging cause my kids all know the truth I really do excel in that arena and they quite often are surprised at how creative my solutions can be… I may not like my weight right now, but no worries folks, I love myself!  

IF you got this far , Thanks for reading my musings of the day….
