"My Fair Lady" with Mom and Dad
Well, just to lay it out there, I'm about as successful of a blogger right now as I am in every other area of life. It's not that I don't want to, or that there aren't things I could be saying, it's just that I'm not getting around to it.
Lethargy, apathy, laziness, introvert, sluggishness....these seem to be the key words of 2012 so far. I'm telling you, it's not pretty. But, it is my "norm" for this time of year, so I'm just not letting it stress me out.
I did manage to get dressed up and out of the house for an Alexander family adventure. Mom and Dad ended up with two additional seats to fill for the play, "My Fair Lady" and asked Michele and I if we'd like to accompany them. So, Michele and the girls came down Saturday and with the kindness of John keeping an eye on all that estrogen (Christina was over too) - we had an "original Alexander family outing" to PF Changs and then on to the Hult Center.
The performance was very good - it makes me want to watch the Audrey Hepburn movie to see how it differed. However, us gals all agreed that the male lead who played "Professor Higgins" wasn't attractive enough - or didn't possess enough "Alpha Chemistry" to make the storyline believable. (Not to say the plot is believable enough to begin with, but you know what I mean).
Thanks Mom and Dad - it was a very special night out with you!
As for yesterday - after taking WAY TOO LONG to get going, I FINALLY cleared out all evidence of Christmas in our home. Our garage....oh baby, that's a different story altogether. Mikayla's room has been in the process of updating from a room full of Polly Pockets and Littlest Pet Shop to a room with a desk and sewing machine....sigh - she's growing up. =( That occupied John all weekend while I did the decor rehaul. I've still get plenty to "spruce up", but at least the house looks like it is ready for 2012 instead of hanging on to the memories of 2011.
I'll close this off as I'm currently in the act of negotiation with my son as to whether or not he's sick enough to stay home today. The verdict is still undecided.
