Well, he went to State yesterday. And no I didn't go since I've been feeling under the weather. And my car is also feeling under the weather and I thought it might just fall to pieces if I were to drive it to our state capital about 2 hours away. And it was suppose to snow and I am sick to death of driving in the feckin' snow! Also, Sperm Donor was going and since I heard Mac sing at District AND he and I had a very serious talk about how he would feel if I didn't go (and he was okay with it), he rode with his father and I stayed home. Honestly, I was torn. I thought I should be there NO. MATTER. WHAT. because that what moms do, right? Well, I was also such a nervous wreck at District for him that is made him WAY more nervous than he should've been so it was almost better that I stayed home.
Oh, yes, I should probably tell you how he did... my son kicked some State vocal butt and walked out with a Gold Medal! Whoot-whoot, he got another first, with an excellent score of 12!!! I am SO PROUD of him!!!!!!
And do you also remember when I said Mac wanted to sing "It's Raining Men" for the Spring Spec concert? Well, that idea isn't gonna fly. It has nothing to do with his song choice, him being in drag, or the choreography. It has to do with the fact that the seniors picked "2000: The Decade" as the theme and since that song is NOT from that era, he can't do it. I can't decide if I'm bummed or relieved. Or worried about what he WILL do now...
I still have the golf ball sized lump in the middle of my throat and yes, my worry is growing exponentially about it. I've been the the meds for four whole days and it hasn't gone away or gotten smaller. Is it time to panic or do I wait the entire 10 days to see if it's a virus that can't be killed by an antibiotic and just goes away on its own?
So I was given an award by my blogging friend Jesse, the artist. Thank you Jesse!!!! I *heart* you!
As seems common practice in the blogger world when one wins an award, there are some suggestions such as Linking to the blogger who gave you the award (check), write 10 things that make me happy (check), share it with 10 friends (check), and have fun!
Okay here goes my happy list:
1. It makes me happy when I work with Kool.
2. It makes me happy to spend time with Mac that's FUN time!
3. It makes me happy when we have snow days.
4. It makes me happy when I can spend time with friends and Daddy-O.
5. It makes me happy to get a bunch of blog comments.
6. It makes me happy to finish projects and cross things off my to-do list.
7. It makes me happy when I don't have late library books. (I'm working on that!)
8. It makes me happy when snow melts.
9. It makes me happy when I can eat chocolate.
10. It makes me happy to get get new shoes.
And I have to say I just LOVE this award because it's pink, it makes an educators reference, and it has CUPCAKES on it, which we all know are the world's most perfect dessert. Thank you again, Jesse!
For the last bit, the 10 people to share in the award love, who I have my own reasons for picking (ask me and I'll tell ya why!): Bragger, Wiley, Shan, Jimmie Earl, The Duchess of Tea, D-Nice, The Eejit, Anna, Cheryl, and Evil Pixie.
And I think this wraps up enough bits for me today!
