last night was rockies game #2 and it was a way bigger success than our previous attempt. for one thing we had great seats thanks to b's boss [like, 23rd-row-great seats], and there was NO rain...instead it was like 85 degrees until 8 p.m. and i think i sweat my brains out, but no major complaints.
proof that my giant belly was in attendance...how ridic do i look? holy cow i can't wait to be normally proportioned again:
here's a fun fact about me. i was raised NEVER staying till the end of anything. concerts, sporting events, outdoor movies, whatever -- my dad hates crowds and always insisted on leaving early to "beat the rush." that has been so drummed into my head [along with other gems, like an insane need to fill my gas tank if the indicator gets below a quarter-tank, and never sitting on the arm of the couch] that as an adult i typically insist on the exact same thing.
last night the rockies played the red sox and it was a GOOD game. i think half the stadium was cheering for the sox and the score was really close...i was intrigued to see who'd win, plus we went with friends so i didn't want to spoil their fun by leaving early. we decided to stay till the end even though i thought i was going to have a nervous breakdown thinking about all the "crowds" we'd be stuck with, since the whole stadium was still full. and WHAT happened?? they freaking tied the score and we had to go into extra innings. we were sitting in front of annoying drunk fans and it was way past my bedtime and i seriously had anxiety [pathetic]...but i stuck it out.
and...the sox won :( BUT when it was time to go, guess what? the parking lot wasn't so bad. we didn't get caught in crazy traffic. and i was proud we had stayed till the end. so i guess i learned i can actually be flexible and it all works out okay. life lesson, thanks to the rockies.
p.s. today is my one-year anniversary of quitting my job in LA. sad face. since then i've lived in three states, had two jobs and grown an almost full-term fetus -- what a year! seems like just yesterday we were sitting at my farewell lunch learning michael jackson had died...such an eventful day :)
