Hot! Humid! Tired!




Well...

Den and I went to see Jackson Browne last night in Atlantic City at our usual hangout...The Borgata...yes...we were just there last Friday for America. All I can say is that we are sometimes stupid...I did not want to go from the minute I woke up on Friday...plus...we always stay over but we did not factor in that it was a sort of holiday...and a ten year anniversary for the Borgota. That made our yummy room about $500 for that night...seriously so not worth it so we thought we would drive back home after the concert. We are about an hour and a half away but it's a scary highway at night...tons of traffic...just not a pleasant drive late at night. But we did it and are ok...just totally exhausted. We actually tried other great hotels in AC but...we had to take a jitney to get to the concert, reviews said some had recent...OMG...bedbug reports...so we nixed other casino hotels. Plus even the Borgata had a smash and grab robbery at a jewelry store this past Monday at 8 in the evening...thieves took $500,000 worth of stuff. It's a store that you have to walk by to get to the hotel, restaurants, casino area and concert venues. We always felt safe there...but last night there was a guard stationed at the store's front. I guess there is never such a thing as being totally safe.

The concert was great...he is amazing...his opening act was someone from NickleBack...awesome BUT...the longest concert ever...I was so tired of sitting!

The girls and I are not moving...so drained! When we go to bed at 2 in the morning they go to bed at 2 in the morning...but feel compelled to wake us up at 5 ish for breakfast!



Reading this yummy mystery...almost finished...



Bouna Lettura!

  2. The concert sounds really good....but I'm still itching from your mention of bed bugs! Yikes.

    Hope you recover from the fatigue....

    1. The one thing you don't want to have to do is google your hotel's bed bug report...you may never leave home!

  4. Nickleback is an opening act these days? They were big at one time. Enjoy the rest of your weekend.

  5. Jackson Brown looks pretty good in that pic. So serene...I love the picture of the girls! Roxie is right up in there...lol...Lucy is giving her "the look"...lol...I LOVE Nickleback---opening act or otherwise! Except for the exhaustion, sounds like a cool outing.

  6. Glad the concert was good and that you made it home safely. It can be hard driving so far after a concert- but $500 for a hotel is crazy (unless one has money to blow). I heard about the jewelry heist and was happy that it wasn't on a night that you were at a show! Scary!
