Hubby just keeps surprising me!

On Tuesday he told me not to make plans for Thursday night, he had something in the works. Sis and I had been talking about doing stuff, so on Wed, I told her it was out. Hubby kept kinda bugging me to guess, but I'm trying to turn over a new leaf. I realize that there might be a challenge in trying to find out surprises early, but once you do, its a big letdown. So I didn't check to see what was happening in town (yep - behaved for 2 whole days!).

Last night I decided to cook din, since he was doing something nice for me. It was great, he kept trying to get me to guess, from the time he got home until we arrived he was like a little kid. We headed out a bit early, hit the DQ, then wandered around the gardens at the Experimental Farm. Finally we headed downtown, and only when we were pulling up to the National Arts Centre did he hand me the envelope with 2 tickets to Mamma Mia!!!!

I don't know how many ways this was a great gift: he committed to sit through 3 hours of ABBA music with me, he went to a musical, the surprise was great, and the show was fantastic! I laughed so hard I cried (and yes, snorted a bit).

My being an ABBA fan usually gets a double take but really, I tonnes of their albums (yep - vinyl, they're the only reason we still have a turntable). Loved'em in the 70's and early 80's and I 're-discovered' them in the 90's when my roomie and I used to sit around smoking, playing Crueball and listening to ABBA after work :)

  • Evil tempting bikes!

    One of the guys I play softball with has a line on two Suzuki demo bikes. End of season, they are taking them out to the track this weekend then…

  • She's gone.

    Well, I am now officially bikeless. *sigh* The past two rides I've had on her have been the most cruel. She's a really great bike, the new front tire…

  • First estimate in on the bike...

    It aint pretty... To get it mechanically safe, it will need forkseals, new tire, clutch lever (which I'm not sure I agree with) and brake pads…
