I am going to sewjourn TODAY!!!!
I am leaving behind five performances of Grease with the associated drop-offs, washing of costumes, and very very late pick-ups.
I am leaving behind rehearsals for two other shows (shared between the kids)
I am leaving behind gala night with an estimated 2am pick-up of daughter
I am leaving behind:
"What's for dinner?"
"have you got a minute"
"Where is my (insert anything from basketball to brain here)?"
"how come He/She gets to ...whatever"?
"Why do I have to do all the work"?
I am leaving behind the real life crap for the weekend and it was all I could do this morning, not to actually push them all out the door to school and work and dance gleefully up the hallway in my dressing gown to a stirring rendition of Freedom.
(OK, maybe I did actually do that)
So even though I know all the crap will still be here when I get back
I'm going to belt out one more chorus, chuck on my shoes and get the hell out of dodge .........
