Several months ago, Taylor Swift tickets went on sale. It was truly impossible to get legitimate tickets since they have killed the scalping laws. Ticket brokers buy as many as they can and then mark them up with "processing fees" of up to $150 a piece. The internet has made it nearly impossible for normal people to purchase tickets directly from the venue or even through Ticket Master. Mind you, I don't like Ticket Master but at least they are upfront about their fees. I ended up on some site that I really should have checked out better. They didn't show the fees until you had already scrolled down and the fees were shown at the top of the page. I tried to fight it but even with AmEx I was stuck. So we made the best of it. I didn't tell the girls we had gotten tickets. Since the show was the day after the last day of school, we decided to give it to them as a "last day of school" present. In my mind, they would read the paper, realize what it was and look up at me with big eyes full of surprise and delight, maybe even jump up and give me a hug. You know, like those videos people post of their kids reactions when they tell them they are going to Disney? Yeah, they were completely underwhelmed. I guess we have spoiled them too much.
Who has the last day of school on a Monday? Only in Wake County... The stupidest part of it was that Delaney had her quarterly recognition ceremony at like 9:30 am and was allowed to go home after it was over so she was only there for about an hour and a half. She did make A/B Honor Roll for the 4th quarter as well making it 4/4. Way to go kid. We are super proud of you. Now it's time for your summer break. You've earned it.
I'm a mother of 2 girls living in NC. I've dabbled in photography on and off but really this is just for fun
