Well, tomorrow IS the big day- the daughter graduates from high school. 3pm (as does my friend Dave's in PA- big hugs to you and yours!)
She has so many different cords (Center for the Arts-vocal music theater and art, Thespians, the school color cords) she looks like a de colores bumper sticker on a white car-
She made her dress out of remnants of white eyelet- made it today- it's gorgeous and cost her about $10 and $2 of that was for the invisible zipper- while we were at the fabric store the mother and daughter in front of us were buying for a dress project they were going to work on for the summer- if all went well "she'll make her prom dress for next spring!"
The daughter looked at me with THAT look- she's finishing up 5 costumes for the AnimeCon this weekend- Tokoyomew-mew- wigs, boots, elaborate costumes for herself and four friends. They will be awesomely hot, as her boyfriend said!
After getting ready, doing other stuff this weekend, and unexpected guests from out of town- not for graduation, just passing through- I was off kilter and tired so missed the Shockoe reading today and the art6 meeting. Such is life- my family comes first, poetry gets plenty of time-just not this weekend.
No Jam at Cafe Gutenburg tomorrow night- good thing- we'll probably take her out to dinner.
Tuesday morning I take her to get drug test and physical for her summer full-time job as a costumer for Parks & Recs/Dogwood Dell performance program.
Then I get some of my days back for poetry-
Tuesday night 7:30 pm Barnes&Noble Libbie Place
Wednesday night 6:00 pm Carytown books poetry group
Saturday night 8:00pm Womenspeak at art6 - I'm one of the readers
