Waldorf Wednesday #25

Happy Waldorf Wednesday! The best thing to happen to Wednesday since millet. I didn’t make that up, by the way. Becca did. But it makes me smile every time I think about it, so I’m repeating it. Thanks, Becca!

We still have illness floating through the house. Too bad for the children, I got my voice back. But the sickness seems to have migrated away from our boogery noses and sore throats and into poor Molly’s tummy.

This is especially bad because while I was sick I followed a whim and took Daniel to an audition at the Pittsburgh Opera. They needed a child around age five who was small enough to pass for a three-year-old to play Trouble in their production of Madame Butterfly. Imagine my shock when he actually got the part, along with another sweet little girl! He’s been having a great time with his “opera mama” who sings to him and holds him and hugs him on stage. He is having such a great time, although I do fear that it’s going to his head a bit. After we found out he had the part, we drove past the Benedum Theater where the opera will be staged. There was a show that night, so the lights were bright. He looked at it and exclaimed, “I’m going to rule that stage. I’m going to rule the WHOLE TOWN!” He’s rather unintentionally hilarious, which is actually the very best kind of funny when you think about it.

So we’re praying he stays in good health, as well as for healing for the rest of the family.

I decided to invest in a card reader for my hubby’s computer. I also got the phone call I was dreading from Dell, asking my permission to re-image the hard drive. This means all my writing I had saved is lost. *sniff*

Between opera rehearsals, choir rehearsals for Holy Week and Easter, inter-faith housing network dinners, the two classes I’m teaching at co-op, ballet and orchestra, trips to register Michael for cyber school, an emergency cello repair, and homeschooling, we’ve been keeping pretty busy.

It’s almost enough to make me forget that the groundhog lied and spring still isn’t here.

I can’t wait to hear what you all have been up to!

    I’m new to the link-up, and well, link-ups in general. How do I “link-back”? It seems like a kind thing to do, but I don’t know how! Thanks!

    We are going to have to borrow “makin’ nasties” since “got the pukes” is getting old here. 😉 It seems like every homeschooling family I know has had a bout with the flu in the past week- it is like the Homeschooler’s Plague of 2013.

      It’s dreadful. But at least it seems to be quick moving!

    Way to go Daniel. So, when we make a trip out your way from Lancaster, at least we will know who rules the town.

      No mistake about it! And wouldn’t it be wonderful if you did get out this way?
