Last week was extremely busy. Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday we cleaned out the garage and took about 5 carloads of stuff to the Goodwill. Then Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday were spent building a cedar fence. Yes, that's right, I helped! And I'm very proud of myself! We hired two guys to help us pull out the old posts on Thursday. The remaining days were spent building up the new fence. By doing it ourselves, we saved about $3000. And while it was tedious, it wasn't difficult. It's been raining all week, but when it stops, I'm going to post up some pics because I'm so proud that not only did we build it ourselves, but we didn't kill each other in the process!
And today, I was up early anticipating the work I was about to do. At 10am, I went to ticketmaster.com to try for tickets to the Kenny Chesney/Sugarland/Miranda Lambert/Lady Antebellum concert in May. My girlfriend was at home on her computer doing the same. We stayed on the phone and whoever found the best tickets would order them. We did this last year as well. Unfortunately, the problem is that it's a crap shoot. You never know if you should buy the tickets you get, or throw them back and hope for better. Her computer was giving her trouble, so I found seats that were pretty decent and we decided to go ahead and get them. Wouldn't you know, as soon as I paid for them, she found better seats. They were $50 more each, and I'd have been willing to pay for them since they were right off the stage. However, we'd have to try to sell the ones I bought back, and there's no telling if that would happen. This year, we didn't get floor seats (like we did last year), but we are in row 5 in the stands, so it's practically on the floor.
Last year the husbands went with us. Neither of them are fans, but after a few adult beverages, they had a good time. With each other! ha! They were carrying on and making all of the ladies around us laugh.
The opening acts last year were LeAnn Rimes and Brooks & Dunn. They were all really good. I think the fun part though is not just the music, but just hanging out with friends and whooping it up.
Year before last, it was just hubs and I, and we got caught in a major downpour at the concert. Which I thought was fun! But he was miserable since he didn't want to be there to begin with. Last year he didn't mind too much since he had another hubs to commiserate with.
This year, hubs has a gig scheduled that night, so it's just the girls. I got my neighbor to come along as well, so the menfolk will not have to be subjected to such a miserable time. ;)
I've seen Sugarland before and they were excellent. This year's line-up should be good as well!
