It’s been years now since I had any sort of vacation at all. We had a trip planned for 2020, but that didn’t work out as planned in any way. We were very disappointed, but we didn’t want to take chances with any of our family members’ health.
Last Tuesday, my mom had purchased tickets to a concert in Austin, which isn’t far from here. But she reserved a hotel so we wouldn’t be driving back in the middle of the night. It was almost like a little mini-vacation.
The concert was a triple bill with Nile Rodgers & Chic, Bastille, and Duran Duran. It was so much fun with so much great music. I’m still thinking about it. We had a very pleasant trip. The hotel was comfortable. The drive was much less traffic-congested than normal, too.
This was sort of an early birthday present, but we really just wanted to go. I haven’t been able to see Duran Duran since 1993. We had tickets several years ago, but the show ended up being canceled. So this was great because it was like reliving some memories from my youth that were so fun, although I cried during “Ordinary World” because it reminded me of my late twin sister. My mom hadn’t seen them since 1988, so it had been even longer for her. I’m just so glad we got to see the show and that everything went so well.
So, my review for the mattress is coming up. I wanted to give it some time. But I’ll post it in a couple of days, maybe. Hope everyone is doing well.
