Who has two thumbs, a smile, and tickets to the Fleet Foxes for tomorrow night?
I originally bought the tickets because I felt I owed the band something after suggesting (read stalking and begging) they play a date in Michigan, and because they are my favorite band and I'm in the middle of an early life crisis. I even used the concert as an excuse to buy new dark wash skinny jeans (if they can still be called skinny in my size), a flannel plaid tunic, and a sack purse. I'm also taking the opportunity to wear a vintage owl necklace that doesn't get enough showtime. But since Isaac has been doing exceptionally well in school this year, I'm also using the night out as a celebration of all our hard work. Isaac has had perfect daily reports sheets every day this week, a note from his substitute teacher in which she referred to him as a "role model to other students", and it's still SEPTEMBER- the beginning of the year. I'm beyond proud of him, and I have to say that I finally feel like I can take a deep breath and have some fun. I'll be doing just that tomorrow night with my good friend, Erin. Hipster for a night, and then back to mommy on Friday. It's been a good month, and I'm- you guessed it- grateful. To all my other dedicated mommies out there; don't forget to take some time for yourself this week. Do something rash- even if your version of rash, like mine, means planning months in advance.
Now I better get some sleep if I'm going to be up past 11pm tomorrow.
