We made it! What’s on your schedule this weekend?
Good to hear... hope she's feeling better soon.DD has a sinus infection. I had them do a COVID test to be on the safe side since we will be driving DH's grandmother to Thanksgiving dinner. I just need to know for sure. He was pretty confident that it is just a sinus infection though. He thinks that the inhaler working could have been just a placebo affect or maybe it just helped a bit. Her lungs were clear though. I assumed DD took advil because of an headache but when I asked her after the appointment she said her head didn't hurt. It was her face. I feel better now that I took her. Now she has all weekend to rest.
These will be hard to narrow down as comedy is my favorite genre...Laughter boosts your mood and immunity while decreasing stress and pain. Studies show it may even help you live longer. What makes you laugh?
Watching her perform must have been amazing! Not quite the same, but I visited my daughter’s classroom during American Ed Week her first year of teaching. I remember going back to car and just sitting there beaming, a little teary and so, so proud. I can only imagine what you were feeling watching her perform in front of a (paying!) audience.These will be hard to narrow down as comedy is my favorite genre...
Person: Other than my DD, Melissa McCarthy absolutely cracks me up. I really enjoy Kate McKinnon on SNL, my favorite show.
Book: My favorite author is Janet Evanovich who has made me laugh out loud reading her books.
Movie: "Planes, Trains, and Automobiles." "Christmas Vacation" is another favorite. As a kid, I loved watching Jerry Lewis movies, and every once in a while, DD and I will break out the VCR and watch one of my many tapes of his movies.
Animal: As a kid, I loved watching monkeys at the zoo, but lately, I have been obsessed with penguins.
Memory: The first time I watched DD perform stand-up in a nightclub was just a month before the pandemic. She was so hilarious. She was offered another gig at that club and another at a nightclub in North Hampton, Massachussetts. Then we went into lockdown. Since then, she has performed in online shows, but it just isn't the same. Her comedy mentor moved to California where she performs regularly. DD's focus has shifted to her career in Fashion. I hope to once again watch her perform on stage.
It was incredible. She attended a performing arts high school, performed in community theatre, and has been acting and singing since she was very young. But this was a big deal, and if it weren’t for the pandemic, her future would have looked very different. As exciting as all of this is, I am happy that she returned to school to pursue a more stable career.Watching her perform must have been amazing!
