let me tell you what’s cool

I have a lot of cool things to say today but first let me tell you what’s NOT cool.  This exhaustion that I’m feeling.  Blah.  Today marks day 3 of doing the show (after two weeks of pretty solid rehearsals) and I am pooped.  I thought it was just my old age but Henry seems to be yawning a whole bunch too so I don’t feel so bad.  Anyway, today we have TWO shows (the first at 10:30am, the second at 7:30pm) so I need to wake up!  Wake up, Lindsay!!!!

I think it’s really cool….

…when you wake up and just know it’s gonna be a good day based on what the weather looks like.

…when you get to the end of the cereal bag and there are those tiny broken pieces mixed with all the leftover sugar that fell off.  Clara and I always call dibs on the end of the bag.

…when you’re with a good friend and you don’t have to talk and you just KNOW that you’re on the same page.

…when your daughter thinks you’re cool.

…when all the stars align and you can make it through each and every red light.  And it’s double cool when you’re running super duper late (as I always am).

…when you can look back at old pictures of your extremely skinny high school-self and feel so blessed with how much you’ve grown up and out.

…when people are a little nerdy.

…when people show their vulnerabilities.

…when people smell good instead of bad.

…when Clara calls people “humans.”  Example:  Me – “Clara, who did you sit by during the show?”  Clara – “Well it was this girl human but I didn’t really know her name.”

…when you finish your workout and there’s just this sense of amazing accomplishment.  And it’s triple cool when you can do it with other people around you.

…when you reach the end of the movie and want to watch it again.  (this was NOT the case with the new Annie movie that the kids talked me into getting even though I knew it would be horrible.  Poor Cameron Diaz…)

…when numbers are even.  Odd numbers are just….odd.

…when your husband lets you sleep in until 8am.  And it’s quadruple cool when he leaves the Keurig on because he knows you cannot (will not) function without coffee.

…when it’s Friday and you only have THREE more shows to complete and then a long season of rest ahead.

Lastly, I think it’s really cool that you read this little blog and see our family and know who we are.  Four years strong – I’m glad you come back each and every week!

QUESTION:  What about YOU??  Finish the sentence – I think it’s really cool when…..
