Hopeful Plans

I've made plans to see the Cirque du Soleil later this month.  Things sort of came together more quickly than I thought.  We've never been, and I've wanted to see it, and I signed up for the membership notices.  Two days later I got an offer of discounts to the Bridgeport, CT, showings of "Alegria".  A great deal, really.  But, on the other hand, the same weekend as my daughter going back to college in West Haven and she'd need the whole of the day to move in because she's also attending a training session for helping with freshman orientation on the next day.  But, on the third hand, my stay in Richmond got me two free nights at the same chain.  Or, even, one night and two rooms, and a  hotel with the promotion rooms available was near to both school and venue.  Soooo we're going down a day early, all four of us, and stashing her stuff in the hotel rooms while we go to the Cirque performance, then moving her in the next day.   Because, you know, discount performance tickets and free hotel rooms?

I'm hoping it does go well.  The previous attempt at family vacation outing this summer was not so good.  Bad news the first day made me anxious, stressed, and depressed for the rest of the week, and though my mother is feeling better right now (she's out of the hospital, in hospice care at home; she's not getting better but she's feeling better, and that's wonderful enough) there's always now the possibility of worse news.

Don't sit under the high wire act. Those Elephants have no balance.
