Cause I'm leaving on a jet plane, don't know if I will clot again

*laugh* I'm a bit nervous about flying for the first time after the pulmonary embolisms in November. I've got my embolism stockings (SO attractive) and will be preboarding to ensure an aisle seat with plenty of leg room. I have to get up every 20 or so minutes and stretch, so I pray for a stable flight.

I'll be in Colorado, Broomfield to be exact, until Thursday afternoon. It will be great to see my team again as we only get together once or twice a year.

When I get back, I'll post pictures and maybe video from last night's sold out performance of 'NUTS!'. The first graders were stunning. Ok, Matthew just stood there the whole time looking around and picking at his skin. Didn't sing. Didn't dance. Just stood like nobody else was around. Michael did a bit of fidgeting and constantly spun his beret around his head. He did ok on his speaking parts, but was a little soft spoken and spoke too fast. I do the same thing when I speak in public. I don't mind it, but I have to FORCE myself to slow down. I don't think a 7-year-old has that ability yet.

The biggest laugh in the show was unplanned. The person right before his third set of lines had gotten a response from the rest of the kids (scripted), but they didn't quiet down for Michael to speak. He stood at the microphone for a minute looking around and then threw both arms out and shushed everyone! That kid just thinks he is too cool for school. He also strutted around with his hands in his pockets when they weren't out spinning the beret.

Oh well, off to finish packing, stow up this laptop and get showered.
