Stage Mother

Sometimes God-Oprah-Allah-Buddha-Universe just hands the Matron a blog post. So, Stage Mother will simply post a link to her daughter's big commercial. Big because it paid for the high school laptop coming next year.

Scarlett is the one in braids. Oh, how she loves to dance.

Still driving, cleaning, cooking, teaching and grading! One grain of rice at a time . . .

Buried Alive!

The Matron is pretty much ready to set up camp on Mount Never-Been-Climbed-Before-And-Nobody-On-It. This way, she could have complete solitude and all the time in the world -- or on the mountain.

Wait. She's afraid of heights. And there might be nothing to blog about.

But that's the kind of peace and pace that sends her current brain cells tingling. Yes, yours truly is buried alive under another kind of mountain: family and work. She has more assignments to grade than there are days in a year and not a day goes by without approximately three hours (at least) of child driving.

So . . . hang in there. Don't forget, don't give up! This too shall pass -- hopefully as soon as week's end.

In the meantime, for entertainment watch the Just Dance 3 Best Buy commercial. See those screaming girls and the one in braids? That's Scarlett in her first 'national' appearance.

Guess who hasn't even seen it!! Time to get cable.
