happies: dancing girl, leftover pizza, and a warm cat

mood: tired

Kidlet is a dancing Ginger Snap in the Nutcracker tomorrow. That is the traditional youngest dancers bit, but their choreography is quite complex and it goes on for a longish time.

ridiculous amounts of details I apparently MUST get out of my system: She had a special rehearsal today, with Mother Ginger and the big skirt, three times. Then she wanted to stay and watch, so we saw the first act twice and the second act once. She was bubbling, fizzing over with excitement, dancing around and running up and down the stairs quite a bit.

Oh but I forgot about the part where she lost her ballet slippers and didn't bring home the loaners she was using so there we were at the last minute driving across town through some fairly icky traffic to the ballet store and running in and nearly flinging money at the counter and then to the theater.

The guys had dinner out at Zachary's but they brought home some leftovers which is good because I hadn't actually eaten all day.

And I have a purring cat sitting next to me in The Big Reclining Chair. He just fits in next to me.

Thank you, it was more exhausting for me than for her!

Ah, such good warm happy news in this post. I will be wishing all the best for the Kidlet tomorrow. And I am envious of your purring cat. I haven't seen my two for FIVE MONTHS!!! Ack. But I fly to my parents' home on Wednesday and will soon be snuggled down with them.

May these good content times continue for you for a while yet. You deserve this.

This is just all smile. :) Well, except maybe the part about the slippers, but still. And I'm keeping good thoughts for tonight! *hugs and loves*

Thank you! The slippers could have been so very much worse, so that's good.

Would you tell the spatulites that my IM client is being wonky and I may or may not be back?
