Friday Five blog hop

So it's Friday, which means I'm hosting this Friday Five Blog Hop thing again.  Basically, it's a super easy post.  I used to just set the timer and free write, whatever was on my mind, without trying to censor or think too hard.  Usually, once I started, it was easy, and I didn't have to think about it at all.

That's kind of my goal for this blog hop - just five minutes of free writing.  Nothing Fancy, nothing planned, nothing needing to be humorous, or inspiring or anything for others - just for you.

So set your timer!  When you're finished, link up and share!

It's a little after 4, and it's been a long day.  I feel like I have a lot to do and only a little bit of time to do it.

I was doing a bit of running around today - actually this is the first time I've sat down at the computer all day!  It always seems like I have so much to do, but not enough time to do it.  Tonight we are going to the local high school play, so that should be fun.

I like those things.  Kara used to be in every high school production... when she graduated, I really missed going to see her stuff.  I was glad she continued with it in college, and now she does some things here and there in NYC.

Here's my kid Kara singing a tune from the musical Wicked when she was in college:

Aw, that clip makes me miss my kiddo.  Even though she's only a few hours away, it's still hard to see her all that often.  Ah well, I get that she's doing her thing, and I'm happy that she is happy.

Well, time's up!  Happy weekend to you guys.


  1. She is FANTASTIC! Deanie sang in high school and danced. Her major in college didn't allow her the time to do either while there and I was so disappointed. She turned down several offers to attend art schools because she wanted a major that she could fall back on because, as she said, "With dancing you never know when you'll be injured and done." Smart, but I miss hearing her sing and watching her dance. She was so good at both. I'm so glad yours is still doing it! Good for her! And good for everyone who is lucky enough to hear her!

  2. I think kids nowadays have a lot more talent than way back when. Perhaps it's the exposure to much more media...she's great!...:)JP

  3. One of my sons has done a Shakespeare Monologue contest a few times, he's only 12 but I've got my fingers crossed for high school!

  4. Thanks Mom. <3 Love you.
