It was a small audience. Mostly the kids from the choir (who would be up next). It was the end of the school day and the band was having an awards ceremony and concert. And there we were. My husband had been working from home (Bruins were coming home, easier to not fight the traffic) and so we both went. His shy smile and slight acknowledgment was reward enough for us. He got a pin for being in band for a whole year. I stayed so that I could take him home, hanging out with him in the lobby while he held chocolate chip cookies he didn't make in cooking class (it was a group project and he had to be there for band).**
The other day, I went out to lunch with my brother and SIL, nieces and my dad. We went to the North Bridge and enjoyed the nice weather. I picked Michael up early from his after school program and we went out and bought father's day gifts.
Today, I am picking up a friend from work. She has a condition like Parkinsons and cannot drive right now. I am picking her up and taking her home. Next week, I am taking her to her treatments (its like chemo).
Later today I am taking his sports jacket in; doing the groceries. Stresses that won't confound our weekend.
**oh my...a week before 6th grade is over!
