The Crazy Suburban Mom: Gray skies are gonna clear up, put on a happy face!

Gray skies are gonna clear up, put on a happy face!

First, I'm so sorry I haven't posted in a few days. I have so many words bottled up inside of me at this point I feel like the Turducken version of a dictionary (Which would look like a bag of scrabble tiles wrapped in a thesaurus surrounded by a Funk and Wagnalls dictionary... Now that I think about it would be more of a Scrab-thesaur-tionary than a Turducken.) Verizon is supposed to physically be here this morning to check out everything starting with my modem and than work backwards (my lines, connections, their lines, connections... ad ininitum)

But on to better things - The graduation.

In my post The rain in Spain falls mainly in New Jersey I told my son, It won't rain on graduation. And thanks to my good thoughts and yours, it didn't!



Just look at that crazy blue sky y'all helped me with!

I took that while sitting on the metal bleachers (my butt may never recover) at the actual graduation. It couldn't have been more beautiful. For all the great blue sky thoughts you sent my way you have my eternal gratitude. I actually heard my son tell a friend about it.

My mom can do anything. It's kinda scary.

Hey, it never hurts to have your kid think you have magical powers, you know?

All day there was more sun than clouds but the clouds were still fairly rambunctious and looked like they could turn into storm clouds.


That was on the way to the ceremony.

Don't you just love the New Jersey traffic?

But all day I just kept saying...

It's not going to rain...

But, ma...

No, it won't rain....

And all day I saw all the blog comments with the good weather thoughts. You guys are amazing.

And it just got clearer and clearer. Till there was that amazing blue sky smack above graduation.


It was a great ceremony and only about an hour and a half long. Even the speeches were great and only 3 minutes long. But the best part was watching the senior class walk onto the field to an original musical piece composed by an alumni of and played by the marching band.

I sobbed like a fool. Seriously, I was embarrassing. At some point I had to calm myself down because I was starting to have trouble breathing. The last thing I wanted was the kid to watch an ambulance haul me away.

I hope someone I know got some good pictures because although I dearly love my fabulous pink camera (Nikon Coolpix) it doesn't do long shots any better than it does close ups.


He's a high school graduate and I'm am mad proud of him.

Again, thank you for all the positive weather thoughts you threw my way. You made it a wonderful day for my son. And for me! I'm so grateful.

... And hopefully my internet problems will be over this afternoon.

If not all the bottled up words are going to explode in odd verbal ways.

Congrats to your son! I remember how surreal it felt when my daughter graduated from high school. (She just didn't seem old enough!)

Glad the weather cooperated.

I too had a high school graduate this year (as well as a college about an emotional springtime)...I totally get worrying about the weather. But it looked liked it was absolutely gorgeous for you. did you do the arrow thing on your picture? I am always trying to learn new things. I have a lot of new things to learn.

congrats to your grad. and you.

Thanks so much everyone!

mama-face - it was just the webdings font in the text part of my digital photo program. I added them like I was adding text, enlarged them and changed the color!
