Tonight I'm out and about with my husband and Bones. Bones' Drama class requires each student to see a play, live theatre if you will. We have but six more weeks to make it happen, and so when I saw the Addams Family playing at the Kravis Center, I immediately went down and got the three of us tickets. (When presenting a Student ID, tickets are CHEAP. SuuuuWEET!)

The other two being uninterested, homework, etc, although I suspect they'd rather exist in a house without Bones.

Bones is, of course, giving me all sorts of static about 'having to go', when we all know that when he gets there he will be enthralled, it being a musical and his being a vocal major and all.

Tired of hearing his crap, I said, "Fine, we'll leave at Intermission..." He seems distressed that it has the potential to be a late night out on a school night, yet I didn't hear those complaints last night as I yelled repeatedly for him to go to bed.

Go figure. 'Twill be interesting if we REALLY leave at Intermission.

Meanwhile, today was Cheesecake Delivery Day, the fundraiser his vocal group has at school. What does that mean in this house? Normal houses canvas the neighborhood hoping to find neighbors to buy cheesecakes. When one lives with three boys... the cheesecakes are bought for home consumption.

Currently in my fridge I have pumpkin, raspberry, chocolate, and cookies and cream cheesecakes, which irritates the crap out of me since I'm trying so dang hard to eat clean and it's a struggle with... FOUR cheesecakes in the house.

And cheesecake being one of my favorites ...

So we're off to see the Addams Family. Bonus for me, there's no cheesecake in the theatre.

Now that just makes me sad, 'cuz middle son just had his birthday and the cheesecake I made for him is nearly gone. :(

One lonely slice is still sitting in the fridge, and I think the birthday boy should eat it (but, oh, do I want it!)

can't wait to hear about the musical. I don't know much about it, which is odd, as I know a lot of random stuff about musicals I've never seen

Pumpkin Cheesecake? A little Nirvana on earth.

Be happy to take the cheesecakes off your hands. You can keep the raspberry, but will happily consume the other three.
