Can I Get a Day to Recover From the Weekend, Now?

curiousmay9 left town Fri­day to vis­it with her fam­i­ly. Her grand­moth­er passed away on Sat­ur­day. The grand lady had been in a nurs­ing home for years, and her death did not come as a sur­prise. Still, it’s nev­er easy to lose a dear one.

shad­owkatt’s recital was mar­velous. All of her num­bers were great, and she was beau­ti­ful. I’m very pleased that none of the class­es of girls over 5 or so had real prob­lems with their num­bers. That’s a good mea­sure of how the teach­ers are in general.

dra­cofrost spent the week­end here, and was a great help. As sam­bear men­tioned, the van’s wind­shield was bro­ken Sat­ur­day. That hap­pened when Sam was on his way home from the hour-long (each way!) trip to the rehearsal/performance site. While the van could, tech­ni­cal­ly, be dri­ven, it was­n’t tru­ly safe.

dra­cofrost came to the res­cue. Thank you! We lit­er­al­ly could not have done it with­out you!

I’m start­ing to think that there’s some sort of law that says dance recitals must be held in places between “no” and “where.” This recital was held at the West Geor­gia Col­lege Per­form­ing Arts Cen­ter, in Carrolton.

It’s a per­fect­ly nice, but small, facil­i­ty. The sole rea­son for hav­ing two shows was that they could­n’t fit all the fam­i­ly mem­bers in the audi­ence for one. Katie tells me that they had to do a lot of adjust­ments in rehearsal because the prac­tice rooms at the stu­dio are wider than the stage.

My beef, though, is the lack of any pleas­ant place to while away hours dur­ing, say, a 10-hour dress rehearsal. Right at the col­lege entrance, there are McDon­ald’s, Arby’s, and Krys­tal’s restau­rants. If you go down a bit fur­ther, you get to a place that’s sim­ply labeled “sports bar and grille,” then the Mel­low Mushroom. 

Katie and Josh had din­ner with all four of the girl’s grand­par­ents Sun­day after­noon between shows—at McDon­ald’s, for lack of a bet­ter venue. dra­cofrost is to be com­mend­ed for his survival.

The van is at the auto hos­pi­tal now, get­ting a new wind­shield and mis­cel­la­neous oth­er lit­tle repairs. I’m dri­ving curiousmay9’s car, as she sweet­ly offered it.

Here’s to a good night of sleep for all!
