Back in the (Blog) Saddle Again

Note to graduating son: Do not lose your cap like your brother did.

Dear Monday, I see you violated the restraining order again.

Not to worry, for me at least.

While you’re reading this with your finger on the mouse to change the screen if your boss walks in, I’ll be at my son’s high school graduation. He graduates today with honors, including National Honor Society, this school award for most outstanding math student, and the President’s Award for Academic Excellence. He’s

somewhere in the top six percent of his graduating class.

Not bad. Not bad at all.

Of course I took today off. But I also am taking Tuesday and Wednesday. Initially to do some family transportation, and then…just because I could use a break.

My show, Doublewide, Texas opened Friday night at CAT Theatre.

By all counts, it is a huge success. You can still see it through June 15. And, if you can, you should.

But, like I wrote last week, as of Thursday night’s dress rehearsal, my work on the show is done and it’s in the capable hands of my cast and crew.

I ain’t gonna lie to you. I am very proud of the work we’ve done.

I’m also exhausted, thus an additional reason to take some time off.

The plans are to, of course, do the standard yard work. Although I must admit that I’m pretty much to the summer maintenance point, so that’s a good thing.

I also plan to rework my home office. I have plans. Plans that I believe will help me adjust and work through the very busy months ahead.

Maybe even plans that will prevent my need to talk about how much I have to do and how I’m going to get it done.

Without organization and planning, it just won’t happen.

If you read here often, you know my list of projects. I won’t go over them again.

Let’s just say there’s always something…I wouldn’t have it any other way.

Part of me misses working at the amusment park. A bigger part of me misses the fact that we didn’t get to join a pool this summer and, for various reasons, we’re not going to have our week at the beach.

But, life goes on. Progress is being made.

More on plans tomorrow.

For now, I’m off to celebrate a boy in a cap and gown.

Time to get all Pomp and Circumstancy.

See you tomorrow.
