My optimism about a "normal" week, even a new normal, was dashed when Sis developed a fever Thursday afternoon and so missed school on Friday. This means, out of almost two weeks, we had one day that resembled our previously normal schedule.
Last night, we ate Vietnamese and watched Men in Black, not up for much else (we got Vietnamese because she doesn't really like it and wasn't hungry anyway.)
Her fever has broken, but she's still feeling pretty wiped. So, we're home. There's been a lot of "Phineas and Ferb" and chicken soup. Right now, I'm introducing her to "Glee." I'm not sure it will take.
Bud is at an all-day kung fu workshop. He'll practice with his team, have lunch, hang out, and then go to a performance at a local community center later this afternoon. It'll be a fun day for him and his team friends. Mama's at IKEA to get a new bookcase; we're rearranging the basement some since there aren't any cats down there; Mojito now lives on the first floor exclusively, sleeping on the dryer (preferably running) and wandering around the living room and kitchen looking for attention (this makes us happy that he's no longer hiding down there.) Albus and Hermione own the house again. We smile more about Mr. P than cry, though there are a few tears everyday.
If all goes well with Sis, we're headed into the city tomorrow afternoon to take Ma to dinner for her birthday and then . . .
We have tickets to The Secret Garden at Lincoln Center!!!! It's a concert in honor of the 25th anniversary of this great Broadway show (which Mama saw with Daisy Eagan; I saw it on tour in Houston. We both love it.) Several of the Broadway stars we've seen recently are in it--Sydney Lucas (Fun Home), Sierra Boggess (Phantom of the Opera), Ramin Karimloo (Les Miserables), Telly Leung (Allegiance), and, yes, even Daisy Eagan!!
It's funny that we'll be in the same theater Bud performed in a week ago.
So, pretty good.
