Hall of Presidents

The second grade presented the Hall of Presidents. Each student dressed as a different president. They wore a picture of that president on their lapel. When the button was pushed, they gave a memorized speech... as the president himself.

And now, without further ado, may I present to you President Andrew Johnson...

Here's the opening parade of presidents. The video I got was lousy, but you can catch a glimpse of FDR in his wheelchair (being pushed by Andrew Johnson), some of the first presidents in their white wigs, Dwight D. Eisenhower in his military fatigues, Lincoln in his top hat, Lyndon B. Johnson in his cowboy wear and Teddy Roosevelt in his rough rider clothes.

This is where I've been while I haven't been here:

My family's been wondering, too, if it makes you feel any better.

Something's got to give

Turns out learning 90 or so pages of dialogue


maintaining my self-imposed Spanish-learning schedule (Oh wait. That one had to give, too.)


trying to make sure my family doesn't feel neglected by my new obligation


dealing with Lulu's raging case of strep throat with high fevers and such bad wheezing that she required breathing treatments


Shawn's upper respiratory/ear infections - so severe that I found myself putting aside my life view that he's a grown-ass man who can take care of himself and instead worrying that he was going to end up in the hospital with pneumonia


traveling to meet him while he was at a meeting in New York; getting stuck in Houston on the return trip home and promised a flight home two days later; not accepting that solution and driving the ten hours home (with a 2am pit stop in Wichita Falls; 5 hours of sleep and hitting the road again)


getting ready to take the kids skiing for their President's Day break from school


no time to blog.

Until this play runs the first two weekends in March, I will hereby reference this blog post as "Post 2.14" and refer to it when life is just too crazy - and something has to give. And, judging from the fact that this very post sat unfinished on my computer for a week... I'll probably be referencing it a lot.
