Let me just start by saying, my honey is very stubborn. He is a "get outside and do something" kind of guy, no matter what the weather or the situation.
Okay, so have I set the stage for you? He's stuck in the house and has nothing to do and is blue. Then he get a phone call from his best friend and invites us to go to Vegas this weekend. I had already made plans to watch this little sweetheart.
Oh, how I wanted to. My motherly arms are just aching to get ahold of her. She only lives five hours away from me but somehow with RS's illness that just seems to far to go these days. I just want to spend time with her. Look at her and watch how she reacts to things. Find out who she is and how she sees life. I just want to gaze into her eyes and watch her as she looks back at me. And I so want her to get to know me and remember me.
But he was so blue and so bored and thought he just needed to go that I felt sorry for him and called my daughter to ask for another chance at keeping little Anah Grace. Hopefully I will get that opportunity soon.
Anyway, we made the trip and stayed at the Wynn. When I got there I found out that Garth Brooks was playing. Now I like my music and I like different types of music but I am not much on crowds and I am not into really big venues and reallllly loud music so I didn't think too much about it. Until ....... I talked to one of the guys that works there.
This concert was like nothing I have ever seen before. It was just him and his guitar and a small venue of me and 1200 other folks. (side note, I got tickets because of cancellations)
It was so stinking good, I am writing today to tell you to go. If you get the chance it's worth it. He was funny and he told stories and Trisha came out and sang two songs (they say she doesn't always). She is my favorite female singer, I have more of her albums than anyone else. And he looked like he really enjoyed it.
The honey doesn't know much about music, he says he was always working and never listened to the radio and I believe him because he really doesn't know much about music.
For those of you who do not know, we are walking our way through non-hogkins lymphoma. We have had four chemo treatments and my honey is a type 2 diabetic and the chemo is very hard on his blood sugar. It makes it go out of control very bad. (did that seem like I was yelling? Cause I was.) My honey says he feels like he has had the flu every day since early December. He can't sleep at night, the high blood sugar makes him have to go to the bathroom all night long. We are trying to get it under control but it has been a battle.
The trip was hard on him but like the statement I opened with, my honey is stubborn. I think all in all, he will say it was worth it but as the wife and mother hen that I am, I'm not so sure. But such is life you just have to roll with it. So there you go.
