MY BABY IS HAVING A BABY!
sorry kids---this trumps everything....love you all and all that---but this is it. :) Leah & Joe will be giving David & I our 1st grandchild in November--we have waited and wanted this for about 5 years (and happily encouraged our daughters to teach us delayed gratification)....but yay!yay!yay!
Sam came home for his first weekend visit...he is living in Waco at a group home. We were all very anxious (the good and bad kind of ) for this visit. He had to sit on a bus for 5 hours for a 100 mile trip...got in at 1 a.m. He has gained about 10 pounds...that is very good...taller than Ace...also good. It was a good time---he was home all of 36 hours. He slept in....helped Dave & Ace with some chores....mostly just wandered around unless we gave him something to do. We took the two boys to Incredible Pizza Place on Saturday...rode go-karts and had a good time...went to a couple of very nice wedding receptions...natalie & chad and richard & Jennifer...then some switch went off and he got really grouchy....really grouchy....at this same point, Molly called wanting money, playing the "you dont care about me" guilt card (I dont sucker into that outwardly--so it doesnt really work)---but she does have a job and is going to graduate--YAY!....got off the phone and had to just stand there....i was a wreck....this was a deja vu that i didnt want to re-visit...this is how i lived the entire year of 2007....yeah---see my St Patrick's day post
Ace & I are doing Music Man at the local community theater---rehearsals until shows the entire month of June---first night of rehearsal the director approaches me to play the piano---no prob---by the end of the evening she announced me as assistant music director...which means i get to go to a lot of rehearsals and help the Barbershop quartet learn their parts and help Harold Hill learn his cadences...yeah--love that---but its wearing out my voice...so I spend a lot of days not talking to conserve my voice....(how silly is that--I work at a call center talking on the phone everyday!) ...DancingMoose is picking up the pace for our shows...we are at one a week---and hope to go full-time (like 2-3 shows a week) by mid-summer...just got 2 gigs in one week in October---one in Albuquerque and one in Atlanta! ---
and because I choose to live vicariously through all of these people---I am worn out and energized....and i have great stories!
the theme for today---cool words---each paragraph has a lovely word or two! find em! AND---what new technology did my baby girl help me figure out? hmmmm?
