The entire family is sleepy and some members are a little cranky. I can't say which ones to protect the guilty/innocent. The Husband didn't get much sleep because the Boy crawled in next to him, and was pretty restless. Usually, we kick the boy out, but he had a pretty tough day yesterday which ended with him now being the proud owner of two new inhalers. He is taking it all in stride, and we are pleased that he continues to breathe in and out. Allergies are no joke, humans.
I am tired because I didn't get to bed until midnight. The blame for that lies entirely at the feet of Lin-Manuel Miranda, who wrote a brilliant musical that my sister and I saw last night. If you are keeping track this is, in fact, my second trip to see Hamilton but that is simply because my mother and I were smart enough to click over a year and half ago when we saw the advertisement for season tickets to SHN. We paid $250 each to see 6 shows, one of which was Hamilton. Besides seeing Hamilton for the unbelieveable price of $60 we were able to purchase two two extra tickets for another show. The Husband and I saw a preview two weeks ago, and it was amazing, too.
The Sister hasn't been listeing to the soundtrack for the last two years, but is a lover of both history and musicals so I was pretty confident that she would enjoy it. She did, of course. We had a nice afternoon in the City followed up with an amazing show. It was fantastic especially after an afternoon of stress with the Boy's lack of easy breathing.
I'm too tired to wax poetic over Hamilton yet again, but how can anyone NOT be impressed with a musical the involves a rap battle over whether the United States should institute a National bank, or remain neutral when other Nations are fighting for freedom? The lyrics include words like: inimitable, manumition, and direct quotes from the writings of George Washington and Alexander Hamilton. Nerds like my sister and I who enjoy an impressive use of vocabulary love stuff like that. (Side note: Shakespeare used the word stuff -- it is in Henry V).
Now we are just two school days away from the brief and glorious respite known as Spring Break. Then it is the homestretch of the school year - where teachers and students alike try to remain focused despite endless, bekoning sunshine and the promise of summer's freedoms.
