The Big Apple & a Beatle

Last week my husband came home from work and told me to not spend any money between now and July. Yeah, right. I needed a little more information than that.

He said he made vacation plans for our tenth anniversary and it was a surprise. He told me no matter how much I bugged him, he wasn't going to tell me. We haven't been on a vacation alone since our honeymoon. This was BIG!

I started in on him:

"You have to tell me where we're going."
"Nope. You'll see when we get there."
"How will I know how to pack? How will I know how to dress? What if I wear the wrong shoes? I could wear sneakers and it could be fancy, or I could wear sandals and my feet would hurt from..."
"Fine, fine, I'll tell you!"

I knew my nagging would come in handy some day.

He's taking me to New York City to see Paul McCartney at the new Yankee Stadium! I saw Paul twice before (once in '89 and again in '91) in Toronto. I never thought I'd see him again since it's so expensive. Plus, we have two kids now and it's not easy finding a babysitter (you can't leave a foster baby with just anyone). So our five year old is going to a friend's house for a few days, and the baby is going into respite care. I'm really looking forward to this break, but I will miss the kids.

I bought tickets to tour NBC studios at Rockefeller Center. When we went to NYC a few years ago, the tickets were sold out, so I wanted to make sure we got to go this time. We're planning on staying at a hotel in New Jersey this time. It's much cheaper than the city, and a bus will take us to Time's Square every day. I can't wait!
