I feel like I got hit by a South Pacific Bus.

I've been crazy busy. As in, running all day, every day, with no time to do anything remotely relaxing like reading my friends list or blog roll. Home group is tonight, so I'm spending the day cleaning and cooking, and tonight also final dress of South Pacific, which is shaping up to be a really great (if sort of long) show. Rodgers and Hammerstein, man. They had a a lot to say, and weren't afraid to write an almost SEVEN MINUTE overture. (ALT has cut it down to three something, thankfully. We don't want Nolan and AJ falling asleep before the show even starts. Ethan would have to drive home.)

Anyhow, I'm dropping by to share a story with you all. Aaron's third grade teacher, who was incidentally, also Ethan's third grade teacher, got married to her boyfriend this past weekend. They're both twenty-seven and completely adorable. Shea (AJ's teacher) is a great girl, and a wonderful teacher, and Brian is as cute as he can be. Brian has Brain cancer. Two tumors right now, in fact. There was a story about them in the Amarillo GLobe News this past weekend, and it made me smile through tears. (Which is totally my favorite emotion. ;))

So anyway. Read that. You won't be disappointed. I'm glad that my sons have had the opportunity to know and love Shea and to meet Brian. Prayers for them would be appreciated as well. And sending good vibes to me for opening night. Maybe I'll be back next week when life settles down a little. In the meantime, I'm off to find a remedy for puffy, sleep-deprived eyes and bake for the next several hours. Maybe that IS the remedy for puffiness! I'll let you know.

Y'all have a great rest of the week!
