Whelp, I survived the play. It actually was pretty, pretty good. My son's love scene was a fully clothed one so I remained fairly conscious even with all of the apparently real kissing and rolling about the stage.

The weekend away wasn't without other adventures. My telephone didn't cooperate and I missed many attempts to be contacted by Stacy over on Crimson Purl. Bummer. It would have been fun to have finally met her and take in some shop visits.

Traveling out of town wreaks havoc on one's calendar. I had to handle lots of business by phone - like planning my 13 year old's Africa Day at his school, overseeing huge homework projects and a myriad of other things. Stacy, that's how I burned out my cell phone and missed your calls!

I also missed my 16 year old's big track meet.

And the terrific spring weather that got all the trees to finally blossom here in New Jersey

All in all, I was so glad that my husband insisted that I go to the play even though I knew that it was going to be a bit really weird. It was so worth it.

So, what does all of this have to do with Karma you ask? Well, as with all addicted knitters, one of the first things I attended to when I returned was to run by my LYS to see what I missed. Phyllis was back from her first cruise vacation and I so wanted to hear all about that. Then, as if on queue, this guy shows up

A Buddhist monk stopped in to ask Phyllis if she would put up an announcement in the store window. If that is not confirmation that my LYS, Phyllis and I have good Karma, I don't know what is!

I'm glad the play was ok and you weren't (too) embarrassed! It sounds like it was a good weekend!

I was wondering why I never heard back from you! Hopefully we connect next time. Let me know again!

I think you did much better at the play than I might have done. *whew*

Sorry you missed out on meeting Stacey! At least you have good karma.

Happy Spring! Consider Asheville in September, will you! I would love to meet up and a fiber festival is an excellent reason.

Wow lots of stuff going on with the kids! And I agree with you, it would have been WEIRD watching my child (I don't care if he's off in college) make out with a girl on stage with everybody watching!!!

Deborah - honestly, if you don't write that book I will start following you around with a sign that says that you are a fraidy cat. You are a writer. Just do it! What a great post!
