MAKE IT A GREAT DAY: May the fourth be…

I will have six hours to work before needing to get ready to head downtown to The Schuster for an evening of FROZEN. I have a number of shifts with this particular musical which is not one of my favorites, but as Laura pointed out at dinner last night, “Think of all the little kids who will be coming to the show, excited and dressed up as characters.”


Sometime in the wee hours of Wednesday, I could feel the easing tension in my entire body as the rainy cold front moved away from The Miami Valley, releasing the painful grip it had on my body for nearly a week. Since childhood, I’ve dealt more with sinus issues as weather fronts approached but the sinuses, while still a matter with which I deal, have taken second place to the MS.

Wednesday morning, at 10 AM, I knew it was my one and only chance to mow the yard after a week of rain. The backyard was such a challenge since it grows so quickly. It was a strenuous 20 minutes of mowing before moving to the front yard which was slightly easier.

I showered and easily made it to my Noon meeting which was quite productive. Back at home, I napped for an hour before Laura arrived for an impromptu dinner at Cheddars. I had never been to Cheddars until last night and I quite enjoyed it.  At 6:30 PM, I began two make-up lessons for seniors who had prom and a family event during their scheduled lesson times, and those two made a great close to a busy day.

In 1865, after a twelve-day journey from Washington, DC, the final funeral for President Abraham Lincoln was held in Springfield, Illinois with a temporary entombment following at Oakridge Cemetery just north of the city.

It’s nearing time to start prepping for my day. At 6:45 AM, it is currently 36 degrees, and by mid-afternoon, we are promised a high of 65 degrees. The world is already lighter outside and I am hoping the sunshine will restore some warmth and cheer.

Make it a great day!
