Finally... an update

I can't tell you where March went or what I was doing that prevented me from keeping up. It was one of those months that time flew by and each night I thought, "I should write," yet, I didn't.  All well, it doesn't do any good to dwell on it!

Last month wasn't overly eventful.  On the 31st, Elijah and I went to Valley Performing Arts Center in Northridge to see the Los Angeles Ballet perform Swan Lake. It was beautiful and we had so much fun. I took a PTO day so he and I could leave early enough for dinner and then to go see the show. We went to a very nice Italian restaurant. The food was delicious.  Elijah is incredibly picky, but he ordered spaghetti and inhaled the food! I had an amazing lasagna that was cooked to perfection.

Last week, Elijah had to have surgery to get ear tubes again.  I'm so proud of how brave he was.  I had to get up at 4:45 in the morning and he and I left around 5:15AM for his 6:30 check in time (the place is about an hour away).  Luckily, he was the first one for surgery.  The doctor is wonderful and the staff at the surgery center couldn't have been better.  The nurses made him feel very comfortable and so did the anesthesiologist.  After his sedation medicine, his anesthesiologist asked, "Are you drunk off chocolate milk?" It made me laugh!  Elijah didn't even cry when the rolled him back.  Of course the procedure is quick, barely 15 minutes, and they let me come back to see him before he even woke up from his anesthesia.  He was tired a lot of the day and rested a bit, but by the next day he was back to himself.

Finally, I got my hair styled last week.  The biggest change was some cute highlights, but I did trim it a bit and got side bangs and more layers. I've never done highlights and I've never done the side bang.  I LOVE it.  I didn't realize how much I can love my hair!

All that said, I'll post a few pictures, and update more about our Easter day later because I am exhausted.

Swan Lake

My diploma came!!!

It was drizzling during the intermission, so what does a young dancer and a former dancer do? Go dancing in the rain of course!

Project 365; Feb 24 - Apr 7; Photo heavy

I'm behind sharing my photos from Project 365. You know what happens when you don't do things like post the photos on your blog to keep you on top of it...? You forget. Gah! Luckily, it was only a couple days I missed. I managed to still scrounge up a photo or two at least each day - all but three that is. I've replaced the photos I missed with "intermission" photos. Haha.

Edit: somehow the links became broken -- here is a link to the P365 album:
