It's been a rough week on the headache front, but life has continued on despite the migraines.

  • Wild Man and PWM had Spring Break over last Thursday, Friday, and Monday. Rosie Girl came home for the weekend, so we got to have a family weekend. I had a migraine on Saturday, so I missed Easter Sunday church, but we did manage a nice dinner on Sunday.
  • Wild Man is completely immersed in rehearsals for Pippin. The show is in two weeks, and he has the lead.
  • Rosie Girl is taking a class in jazz arranging which she really enjoys. She'll be taking jazz piano lessons over the summer and playing in a jazz ensemble next semester. This is completely new ground for her, and I'm excited for her.
  • Wild Man went to his Junior Prom last night. He and his girlfriend made a gorgeous couple and had a great time.
  • We've watched several movies over the last few weeks:
    • The Imitation Game - Good movie about Turing and how he led the team that broke the Enigma machine during WWII.
    • Interstellar - I actually enjoyed this movie because there was far more about relationships than about all the "space-y" stuff. The movie is a story about a dystopian future where humans are looking to other star systems to colonize because of the damage done to Earth.
    • Annie - A very updated version of the classic musical. And it was fun and very good.
    • Whiplash - Another good movie, although PWM and I disagreed about whether or not we liked the ending. A college percussionist gets abusively mentored by his professor.
    • August Rush - Very good, but a little sappy. A very musical boy is trying to find his parents.
  • I'm trying to spruce up some parts of the house, so I ordered some towels and a couple of throw rugs. Now to try to keep the house a bit more straightened!
So, what's up in your part of the world?
