What a morning.

Oldest is doing the UAB honor choir thing again this year, and had a rehearsal last night. Since she seems to have enough trouble piloting her car during daylight in familiar environs, we decided it would be best if we delivered her and picked her up. Along with one of her friends who lives around the block from us. Left work a bit early, sped home, tried to get Oldest to call Friend so she would be ready when we got around the block, Oldest forgets how to use a telephone book and telephone, we leave, drive around block, wait ten minutes for Friend who had no idea what time we'd pick her up, drove to UAB, arrived with five minutes to spare. Back home. Eat supper. Drive BACK to UAB, drive back to Trussville, drop off Friend, go home.

Figure out that today's rehearsals will require that I take all the kids to school so Reba can get to work early, because she will have to get off at 3:00 to go pick up Oldest, and we also have to pick up Friend again this morning. SO, everyone up, everyone dressed, food on the way out the door, drive around block, pick up Friend who was more or less ready to go at 6:50 this morning, drop off two kids at middle school, drop of Tiny Terror at elementary school, put the hammer down and head into Birmingham, find my way across town to UAB, drop the final two passengers off at the music building, turn around and FINALLY get to work. And I was only 15 minutes late. ::sigh::

I need a nap now.

Hey Possum (we met last year),

I'm glad OLDEST is singing with us again this year. My technorati search picked you up again this year:


Anyway, hope you can come to the concert tomorrow to support oldest. I'll look for you in the audience--maybe you can wear a possum shirt so that I know it is you.

Oh, you bet we'll be there, Doc! It still amazes me the quality of students who perform at this event, and again my compliments to you and UAB for the great job you do on getting it all organized.

AS FOR POSSUMWEAR--much like Clark Kent, I go out in public disguised with glasses so people will not find out about my blogging alter-ego. But should the need arise, I can always slip off my glasses and dive under a car to become...
