Our 10 year anniversary is next Friday. Cirque du Soleil is in town. We were lucky enough to see a different Cirque show in San Francisco, and loved it. We splurged and bought some pretty expensive seats for last nights show, considering it was for our 10 year anniversary . Bought the tickets, wrote it on the calendar (8 PM, Saturday May 10th), lined up a babysitter, and yesterday went to print out our tickets...for the 4:00 show it turned out. I almost threw up. This was at 4:07. I'd had the confirmation email in my in-box for weeks, and had never once checked it, I was so sure I bought tickets for the 8:00 show. So after about 15 panicked minutes thinking we had just thrown away a nice chunk of money, we got through to some nice girl at the customer service line, who agreed to transfer our tickets to the another show for no extra charge. The only day we can go before the baby is due is next Thursday- the day before our anniversary, and a week before my due date (Mia was 9 days early, and Sam was 5, so we are crossing all our fingers, toes, shoe laces, etc). Seriously, it is a wonder that I am entrusted to raise children most days.
We did salvage the night though, since we had a babysitter and all. We ended up going to dinner and a movie. We saw Baby Mama, which I won't say much about except this: the funniest line was from some random lady in a park telling her kids that they had to go to their play date with Wingspan and Banjo. If you know how I feel about baby names, you'll know that I laughed my head off at that. And if you haven't ever checked out The Utah Baby Namer you should do so if you want to laugh your head off as well (check out the "best of" list- oh, and my apologies to anyone who finds their own name or their kids name on this site, but if that's the case, well... I'm sure I like you anyway).
But the redeeming moment of the night came when the projector went all askew and the film was off center, and even though they fixed if after a few moments, we still politely mentioned it to the management afterwards and they gave us free movie tickets. And we had used some Costco discount tickets in the first place, so basically we'll get 2 movies for less than the price of one. Not too bad, all in all. Stay tuned for an update after Thursday. You never know what pregnancy brain has in store for you.
