Tonight is a big night for me.
I ............ *drumroll* .................... am going to a public, social event ........................
I know!! What has come over me, right??!!!
Well, the husband is out of town on business and there's a showing of a musical in town that I'm able to attend for free. I want to see it. I know people in it. I know the director. And geez - FREE, PEOPLE!!
I tried my one friend who attends these things with me while the husband stays home. She's out of town. I decided, "What in the world is the worst thing that would happen to me if I went by myself?" And when the answer was, "The worst thing is that it will suck and you'll have no one to commiserate with" I decided I was going for it! The kid's staying over with my parents and off I will go! I'm actually sort of excited about it! :)
And it's OK if you are there and think I'm a loser because I'm there alone. Turns out? I don't care!
