Oh ladies, ladies...how I have missed you all! What a week I have had. We're switching internet providers and long story short, there were problems getting the new access going, but the old access was canceled and I haven't had internet for a week now! I have had the shakes I've been in such withdrawals! I'm in SC at my Mom's now (using her dial up connection!)
I read this morning and couldn't believe all the beautiful, inspiring things I'd missed. I sure do love you guys. Johanne had it right when she called us her relatives--you guys are all my Bublé family. And I can't mention her without cheering for her concert story. It just goes to show that if you have the right attitude, just about any situation can be turned to a positive! Glad Shelley survived her ordeal. If I'd known in time I'd have just given her my extra ticket in SC for tonight. Isn't she from NC?
I got to SC yesterday and have been so excited to be here visiting family that I didn't realize until this morning that I left my concert tickets for tonight AT HOME!!!!!!!! I won't put you all through everything I went through before if was all resolved, but lets just say--a mild heart attack later--I will still be going tonight. I can't wait! I hope he's feeling better. Wasn't Roanoke supposed to be last night? Is he okay? He must have been just about on his death bed to cancel a concert. I've been planning on staying after as long as it takes to meet him this time, but I'm wondering if I shouldn't since he's not well. I was hoping I'd win the meet and greet, but alas, the busses it is.
I was trying to think of some little token thank you gift for Michael. I know a lot of people who have met him have given him something. I wanted to give him something that just screamed South Carolina to commemorate seeing him here at "home." My mom suggested a jar of the homemade blackberry jam she just put up this last weekend. If that's not South Carolina, I don't know what is! But what do you guys think? I'd want to give hime something that he could really use. Jam isn't exactly travel food! And it sounds like chicken soup might be more in order!
Anyway, I'll be 10th row tonight unless I run into someone who has front row and I get to give my tickets to some sweet couple celebrating an anniversary!
I'm sure I'll have a concert report in the next few days (that's how long it'll take to dial up on my mom's computer!LOL!). I'll look like this
(like in my sig) for a week or so until the high starts to wear off! I'll be thinking of you all and wishing you were there with me!
Love & hugs,
P.S. Welcome Laurie! It's wonderful to have you on our thread of love! I don't feel all that comfortable on the Bungalo board either, but you'll realize soon if you haven't already that this is "home".
