Its the WEEKEND!!

SO ... its the weekend and I've got big plans. Early Sunday morning Brian and I head to Chicago to enjoy the city, eat some Gino's pizza and maybe grab a Superdawg, take an Extreme Seadog boat ride on Lake Michigan and of course, see U2 in concert! I've never been to a U2 show before and I can't wait for this one. This is our vacation for the year. Its only one night but a good night it will be. :)

The last BIG rock concert I went to was when I was a teen. I thought I'd died and gone to Hell. Seriously. It was awful. I liked the band that was playing but the crowd was unspeakably horrible. To put it mildly, I couldn't walk through the place without sliding around in other people's puke. NOT my idea of a good time. However I'm quite sure that a U2 show isn't remotely like that. Nope, not even close.

Then we also have this bathroom project going. A while back we decided to tear the wallpaper off of the bathroom and paint. Then when we were on the Rez, our dog Gunner got himself locked in the bathroom and went into a panic and nearly tore the bathroom apart. Now it's a "have to" thing. At least he was thoughtful enough to tear up the room we were going to redo anyway.

My husband thinks my idea for the redecorating is, in a word, crazy. I've assured him it will be good. He's not buying it. I'll be posting pics when I get it finished and let you all be the judge.

One of my long standing dreams was to attend a U2 concert live. . I know all the words of their songs by heart …well they are performing this year. Next weekend I’m going to visit my sister and we will attend them; I've got U2 tix from Ticketsinventory.com, so I'll be analyzing as well as enjoying the concert.
