The Beginning of the End...  

Posted by mindyluwho

The play was last night. And while I thoroughly enjoyed it, I'm very glad it's over. In fact it's the beginning of the end for me. Three more weeks of driving my kids to the college. Five more weeks of driving to co-op classes and dance classes. Freedom to live a less hectic life is in the near future!

The play was a rousing success. They did Comedy of Errors. My oldest daughter (I've got to get some aliases for you here soon) played the duke, except they made her a duchess. (Hers was one of the costumes I sewed.) My other daughter played the merchant in the beginning of the play. She was actually supposed to be one of the Dromios, but didn't want such a big part, so they gave her one of the shorter ones instead. Which was fine with her. Comedy of Errors is one of Shakespeare's funniest plays, and the kids did it up just right. It was so good, in fact, that I got so immersed in it that I forgot to take pictures! So last night after we got home, I made my daughter put her dress back on so I could post a picture for you. Here they are:

Well, does anyone know what I am doing wrong? It takes FOREVER to download pictures to Blogger. Am I saving them wrong? I waited for 5 minutes for the pictures to download and they never did. I don't have time to sit around waiting for it to happen. That is why I don't post pictures very often. Am I saving them in the wrong format? Does anyone have any suggestions?

Sorry, you'll just have to wait for another post for the pictures. I've got a life to get back to!

I haven't had a problem, maybe Blogger is being problematic today. Hopefully someone can help you! I can't wait to see the pictures!

It sounds like you had a wonderful time! We're gearing up for Oliver Twist on May 10th. I'm glad Professor is a workhouse child, making a ratty costume is much easier than sewing fancy dress! Thank goodness for thrift stores!

Glad it was a great success. Can't wait to see the pictures. I don't know enough about posting pictures--fortunately, it just works for me. I'm sure someone will have the answers.

I don't have problems downloading pictures, either. I usually download them right from my camera. Do you have a slower internet connection?

I'm glad the play was a huge success!

Min! Yeah for you and your girls! I'm glad it was fun. Who knows about the pics. You'll figure it out soon and we'll be able to see your cuties! Miss you!

Too bad, I want to see pictures:(

I'm glad things will calm down soon, we ALL need calm in our lives:)

I'm glad you enjoyed the play so thoroughly! It must have been so entertaining! :)

I wish I was smart enough to help you with the picture issue...but I'm too dopey and lame for that! :0

April 22, 2008 at 7:48 PM if i have a little tantrum, will that work? i am also at a loss. i do get bugged sometimes when it takes 45 seconds or so to upload a picture. the only thing i can guess is that your photo files might be huge? but i don't know how to fix that. i guess we need to take a class!:)

It took about 10 minutes to download the new photos of the kids that I have posted on the sidebar because they were scanned into my computer and came out very, very big. The bigger the picture is, the longer it takes to upload them. I haven't had problems with ones I save from my camera though, only the ones I have to scan. You'll have to post some pictures of the merchant when you get them from other parent's who actually took pictures! lol
