So yesterday, Scott got the mail in and I didn't glance at it until the afternoon. I had a letter from my bank and instead of the typed label it was handwritten.
So I'm mentally going over in my head, did we overdraft? is there a problem with an automatic payment? did we overdraft one of our 7 accounts?
So thinking its an overdraft I open it and was pleasantly surprised to see that it was four tickets to Elmo's Green Thumb which is playing at Green Bay next Saturday. The tickets are third row and center. I don't think I'd want to get any closer than that.
So now I call TicketStar and ask if I need tickets for the babies. Yes, anyone age 1 and up she told me. Sigh. So what are the chances of me getting 2 more tickets nearby?
I figured I should buy two tickets, one for me and one for another chaperon. I wasn't going to try to buy just one and take all four kids by myself.
So after finding out that my sister Julie would LOVE to go to see Elmo, I call and get two more tickets about 10 rows behind our seats. I'm planning on just having the kids sit on our laps and sit in our original seats.
I'm hoping that the kids are not freaked out by the bigger than life creatures we get to "Meet and Greet" before the show. I think Big Bird will be the scariest because I'm secretly still scared of an 8 foot tall bird. So maybe Julie and Jacob will go to the meet and greet and I'll just take the kids with me to our seats.
Either they will be mesmerized by this performance or screaming to get away. I don't think its going to be anywhere in between. So I'm guessing that John and maybe Brooke and I will be spending a lot of time in the lobby. While Julie, Jacob and Matthew enjoy the show.
