Started with waking Audrey up. Even the dog had to jump on her and lick her all over three times. I had googlemapped the directions to this school, but thank goodness I’d also looked at maps, because google (like anyone from outside of New Jersey) doesn’t understand jughandle turns. I turned right where it was strictly forbidden (although why, I don’t know – but nobody was in the way, and no police were stationed looking out) and missed the (ahem) “left turn” because it was one of the super stooooopid NJ jughandles that comes before the light, and is marked with the towns it eventually leads to, rather than the much more helpful street name. Fortunately, the next jughandle did have a street name, and it was one we knew from the map, so we were set.
The audition went well, from what she said, we’ll know later tonight if she made it. From what I heard in the waiting/practice room, she was at least as good as, if not better than, many of the kids, so we shall see.
We decided later to head down to Borders in Eatontown after calling hubby to find out where the nearest Borders was. On the way, we passed EMO medical center. You can tell she’s her mother’s daughter – we both just started laughing and making jokes about waiting rooms filled with black-garbed kids with hair hiding one darkly lined eye all saying “NO! I DON’T want to see the doctor! Life is SUFFERING! Don’t you GET it?” and bleeding all over the floor.
So we had a snack and bought books and CDs and headed home. Laundry time. Dinner out tonight. Mmmm, sushi.
