a model daughter

It was another one of those days where something very bad turned into something very good. 

Today was the day my daughter was supposed to go for a modeling audition.  After a series of unfortunate events and misinformation, we missed the audition completely!  It appeared as if Alexa had missed her opportunity.  She was understandably disappointed and disheartened. 

I was irritated.

I wasn't going to let the inefficiency of others keep my child from seeing her dreams come true.  I wasn't going to let her give up either.  So we hopped into the car and made our way to the audition more than an hour late to talk with the agent. 

She was very nice, and she even felt bad about the miscommunications that led to our missing the audition in the first place.  So she let Alexa finish her audition in private and as it turns out, she was quite impressed with the talent portion, and she thinks there are good things in store for Alexa.  I think she is a very wise woman.  And I was very proud of my daughter.  She did a great job!

The rest of my Sunday was boring by comparison...but that's perfectly ok with me!  I was ready for a little bit of boring for a change. 

Tomorrow is another day, and I'm sure there will  nothing boring about Monday.

Until the next time...I'll be enjoying the boring while it lasts!
