We had breakfast at 7:00am and then headed on our way. Arrived in the city around 11:30am and then decided to drive all over the place (unintentionally) to find the parking garage we had used the last time (yeah, our memory really sucks). Thank goodness for the Garmin. We didn't get lost, we just saw more of
But see, that's why we like to arrive early. We just never know what stupid thing we'll end up doing. And we can be very stupid driving in
. I still don't know how my friend managed when she worked there. Oh wait, I remember now. She took the bus! Pittsburgh
This picture (which I learned how to take on my awesome camera) was taken before the game started, but you can see we had pretty decent seats (Row X). The Penguins won (8-1 – blow out!!) and we got to witness Malkin get a Hat Trick. Fleury (the goalie) was hot. We certainly picked a good game to attend!
After the game, we had dinner at Hard Rock (my picture includes the incline - just to show it is Pittsburgh). I got my magnet (I also got some Penguins magnets at the arena – one for my car, even!) and my daughter got her collector glass. I had been at that Hard Rock years ago; back when my friend lived in the area and before I started collecting the Hard Rock magnets. I still have the T-shirt I got, though.
It really was a great day. The fact the Penguins won so easily sure made it better.
In other news, my new job is a major adjustment for me. I have to keep reminding myself that I've done this work in the past (accounting) and it's not rocket science! It's a new job and I just have to get used to it. The first day really was awful (If my head could explode, it would have) and unfortunately, I took it out on my husband (I'm amazed at how he can put up with me at times). The next day went a lot smoother and by Friday I was feeling a lot calmer. Let's hope I don't have a relapse.
