I was excited to see my friend Sam Green’s new live cinema performance tonight at BAM and had bought 2 tickets. I picked tonight because it was the only night he was performing that I wasn’t teaching and/or didn’t have the kids overnight. But then Mandy decided to go to Philadelphia until Sunday and announced that I would need to watch the kids tonight as payback for her watching the kids when I went to LA. I explained to her that I had already bought tickets to Sam’s performance tonight but she insisted I either get a babysitter or have Beckett watch Scarlett.
Then Scarlett’s friend’s mom invited Scarlett for a weekend sleepover at their upstate residence and Scarlett was excited to go. She wanted me to drive her there because she gets carsick and didn’t want to throw up in her friend’s parents’ car. After persuading Beckett to come along and spend the night, I drove the two of them upstate with the intention of driving back today with Beckett to attend Sam’s performance this evening.
