What a Weekend!

Whew! I used to say that "back in the day" after a weekend of parties and barhopping. That lifestyle is long gone for this old "has been". I am experiencing a different kind of exhaustion.

Daughter D had her first Junior Symphony concert today at 3:00 p.m.

Her grandfather, a.k.a. the "Semi-conductor", wanted to see her play but could not come to the concert. (It is a four-hour drive from southern New Jersey). I suggested that he could perhaps come to D's dress rehearsal on Saturday.

Turns out, the semi-conductor met a "charming and delightful" lady from York on his singles tour of Prague, Budapest and Vienna. Dad contacted this lady, invited her to the Saturday dress rehearsal along with dinner on Friday night. I had to take a personal day to clean and mentally prep for this visit. Needless to say we had a lovely time dodging snow squalls and feasting on Vito's cuisine at the Moonlight Cafe.

On Sunday (today) Shazza and M came in to see the symphony. My husband's brother, sister-in-law and niece also came down from Northeastern PA. Thanks to everyone for coming and supporting D. The kids sounded great. (except for a few minor mess-ups) Needless to say, I am proud of my daughter, thankful for the support of family and down right exhausted. I am not used to so much company and excitement! Tomorrow it's back to school, Tuesday night I stay late for parent/teacher conferences and Wednesday we will be on our way to New Jersey to help make Thanksgiving dinner for the semi-conductor. As far as I know, he has not invited any of his lady friends.

Yay for Daughter D, Neetzy!
I am so glad it all went off well.

And hoorah for the Semi-Conductor! What a suave and dashing heart-throb he is.
Have a great Thanksgiving!

Neetzy - we had fun. I can only imagine how tired you must be after all that company. Hopefully you'll get to rest up next weekend! See you all on Thursday!

Dive - Oh...semi-conductor is very suave and dashing. He even fluff's up his chest hairs! ;)

Thanks so much Dive!
The semi-conductor is amazing. Imagine being a chick magnet at age 72! (I do think the standards change a bit when you get to that age.)

Shazza, I am exhausted. Sister-in-law was already pestering me about when we're getting together for Christmas. I hate that! I told her Dad has first dibs and that I was just trying to get through Thanksgiving.

Why can't people understand that? Oh excuse me, my life does not revolve around planning the holidays months in advance (with you)! I hate that aspect of the holidays! I am just trying to catch a few days of rest.
