Tids and Bits

Remember two weeks ago when I told you Mac went to District Vocal contest and received a First place so he would be going to State?

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!

What if that song "It's Raining Men" was in a movie that came out in the 2000's? Would that make it eligible for Mac to sing?

congrats to him on his first!

Curley said...

Way to go Mac! Congrats! Do you realize that on your happy list you have getting snow days AND when the snow melts? Too funny.

Evil Pixie said...

Awww, schucks! Thanks for the award! :) By the by, lovin' the pink look!

Maggie said...

Lilith- he tried asking that and it was a no go. Only music from this decade. Ick.

Curley- I did notice that and almost re-arranged my list so they were side by side. haha!

Evil P- you're welcome.

And thanks; it's just a regular old blogger template. For some reason, yesterday mine went psycho and was "broken" and since it was a high traffic day, I plugged this in to save the day.

ProdigalWife said...

I'm so sorry you're feeling under the weather--hope you're taking good care of yourself, and don't underestimate the effect of a hot toddy before bed!
Way to go, Mac! Well done! Sure he knows you were there in spirit.

Shan said...

Well THANK YOU Maggie!! I sure do love getting sweeties in the form of blog awards!!! I like your list. My blog tends to be a graveyard these days but I fully intend to crank it back up when my fingers thaw out entirely. brrrrr

And is that Mac something or what? Do you think he could put something on Youtube that you could direct us to for watching?? I would love to hear him. What an honor to get a gold! Does he consider a music scholarship for college?

Maggie said...

Prodigal Wife- thanks for the well wishes, and I will certainly indulge in a hot toddy!

Shan- you are so welcome for the award- you deserve it!

I'll see if I can do something to get him on youtube. I don't know how to do that at all so I might be shooting you a personal email asking/ begging for help.

The hard part will be getting him to agree! (though if all else fails I might record what he finally does do at spring spec. Maybe. It depends on what he sings, LOL!)

Bunny, THE PARIS HOUSE said...

Bunny here again...Now i'm checking out your other blog, you are a great and interesting writer. I hope you are feeling ok, I'm such a worrier, I hate going to the Dr's and I know I need to this week! I'm the biggest baby. Well hope those antibiotics are working for you!!!

Bragger said...

Congratulations to Mac! And Mac's mom, because I KNOW how much behind-the-scenes support it takes. Yay to both of you!

Maggie said...

Bunny- thanks for visiting, commenting, and sharing- you rock!

and also, many thanks for your kind words about my writing; I hope you keep coming back.

Bragger- oh you are so nice, thanks. And I told him Congrats and he said to tell her "thank you, ma'am."

Cheryl said...

Yeah! Thank you so much! Looking forward to making another happy list.

And don't worry about the golf ball (I know easy for me to say) but I had one just like it and it was nothing more than my body fighting off a virus which went away with antibiotics. Try acupuncture or a Tui Na massage. If nothing else they can alleviate your stress over it.

And congratulations to Mac!

Wiley said...

Way to go, Mac!!
Bummed that he can't sing 'it's raining men', though...

Maggie said...

Cheryl- you're welcome. And thanks and thanks! I hope the golf ball goes away...

Wiley- now he's thinking he won't do a solo at all, the little brat. I'm wracking my brain to come up with something that's campy like that to see if I can get him to change his mind!

Duchess of Tea said...
