Sunday Update

I posted an update about how the benefit recital went over at Piano Girl. To be honest, having invited 400 people, I was hoping for a ton more people to show up, but was amazed at who did.

People who have loved me (and my family) for the last 26 years. Many friends from high school, family members from both sides, and from my homeschooling community came, and that was so fantastic. It was great to see everyone, and to delight in their support of my Piano Girl. Thanks again to all who showed up and showed support. I love you guys!

Our Papa Dude left at 5 am this morning, and will be gone until next Monday, so I get to practice my solo-parenting-of-two-hormonal-crabby-mouthy-teenagers this week. We will be focusing on character lessons a great deal. The house is a mess, and we start a new school term tomorrow, so I have a lot of cleaning to do today. Wish me success in enrolling the kids in the idea of working together as a threesome to get it done quickly and efficiently! If I can get the house looking ship-shape today, I can spend some time in the studio tonight- I still haven't even started the 15 fabric postcards I wanted to have done by tomorrow night. Sigh. I also seem to be in the middle of a several-days-long headache as well. Hasn't hit migraine levels yet, but just won't go away. I think it may be allergy-related. Thank goodness for hydrocodone!

OHHHHH, hormonal, crabby mouth teenagers. Are there any other kind of teenagers? Everyday I tell myself "You will get through this, you will get through this, this too shall pass".
It sounds like the recital went well, that's great.

I'm coming in on the recital stuff kinda late, but I am so glad that it went so well for your daughter!

We are in the same boat, a bit, it seems. My dh left, and we know we won't see him for 3 weeks, and it could be a lot longer than that. So, we're missing him.

Teenagers, schooling, cleaning....yep, all sounds mighty familiar!

My Dude is never gone as long as yours is, and you handle it so gracefully. I am doing my best to be big about it and make the time he is here special. Thanks for being such a great role model!!

What an opportunity for creative visualization! I am envisioning those beautiful, talented children working easily and effortlessly, with a true spirit of cooperation and enthusiasm. Hormones are part of the perfection that each one is ~ helping to bring about the next step in their unique unfoldment. And so it is!
Oo, I can't wait to see what happens next!
