She's Back

I am trying not to feel bad about my blog absence...but I am very much a pleaser person so if I feel I have let anyone down at all I feel bad.  Not that I have grandiose beliefs that someone's day is runied because he/she can't go to my blog and read about the mundane that is my world, but when I don't blog it usually means I haven't read any blogs either and well that might make some of you think that I just don't care anymore, which is far from true.  I do care, but I not as much as sleeping and showering. 

This past week has been filled to the brim with my High School production of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat.  That translates to me being here at school last Monday - Thursday until 9:00 pm, Friday until 10:00 pm and Saturday and Sunday performances that just took over my weekend.  But don't worry I had help as they have a stepdad (who happened to be stuck working nights most of the week) and a father (who was out of town from Wednesday on.)

Oh wait...that means I didn't have much help. 

Thankfully, Andrew played cello and bass in the show so it was just Bella having to sit through most of the rehearsals.  However, she was ready to go if someone was sick, and was quick to point out when a lighting cue was missed or a prop was not placed in the right location.

This does not even go into the the baseball games, volleyball games, and after show get togethers.  I would have loved nothing more to have jumped into bed each night after the performances but alas my son cannot yet drive so I was mama -taxi when I should have mama-in-bed.  Nothing says relaxing like sitting in a booth at Johnny Rockets while my son and most of my students suck down shakes, eat burgers, sing show tunes, and tick off the employees.

So while I am asking for forgiveness, not lamenting the two followers I have lost, and trying to play catch up with my life I will still be thankful that I have a job I love, wonderful kids, a supportive generous husband, and only 8 more weeks of school
