Hannah went to State Thespian Competition in the Musical Theatre Solo Division. She did very well. Often she is too quiet and the judges made mention of that. She was not chosen for the show case. She did earn 6 superior ratings.
Actually, I have to admit, we aren't doing so well as a family in doing things together. We are more like roommates. Everyone has their on school, work and activities. Nothing really goes with the activities of everyone else. Most people say I am never home. Not true. I am home more than the rest of them... I am just home alone. In the morning John is at work and Hannah is at school and Chad is usually sleeping. Around 11 I go and volunteer at the school for a couple hours. When I get back for the school Lillian starts her time at the dance studio and Chad is off to school. I then spend my afternoon teaching other people or doing stuff around the house. Currently, I go to rehearsal at the high school in the evening, but all of April I spent the evening alone, often eating dinner by myself because Hannah would be ... well... I don't always know where, John would be late at work, Lillian would still be at dance, and Chad would be at the Jessops doing homework, working out or just out. Then I would go to bed and start it all over in the morning. I get pictures of what everyone is doing because someone takes a picture Facebook. So I've decided that this is what "empty-nester" is... only with roommate that leave dishes for me to wash and shoes to pick up. In fact, it may be best to ask each person what they are up to because my report is highly inaccurate because I am not involved in their lives and they are not involved in mine. So there is the sad reality known as April.
