i believe

finally have a moment of quiet.  i should be doing a hundred other things.  but i'm sitting here listening to the soundtrack, thinking about the show over the weekend and i just had to share.

let me start off by saying this show is not for everyone.  religion is a touchy subject.  and this play can be offensive.  but if you can let that go for a few hours, it is so funny.
a few months ago i heard that book of mormon was coming to the pantages theater.  bobby and i love going to the theater, ok me more than bobby.  but we love a good show. (and he's a south park fan.)  so we made sure to get tickets during the amex presale.  we had no idea that we picked a date in the middle of chaos.  the pto had its first event that evening.  the good thing is that we had tickets to the matinee and our event at school was at night.  so in typical mitas fashion we would make both things fit into our day.  after some planning and delegating i realized we could make it work.

i'm so glad bobby and i had this time together.  a few stolen hours to laugh, enjoy some great music and talent and not think about anything but this moment.

this play didn't just make us laugh, and yes cry, but it touched our hearts.  it was smart, emotional and brutally honest.  the music is so fun.  i just wish i could listen to it while the kids were with me.  the soundtrack reminds me a bit of joseph and the amazing technicolor dream coat, another favorite.

there were moments that made me cringe.  but more than anything i let go of my thoughts for 2 hours and i just enjoyed.  i felt grateful for the opportunity to be sitting in these seats, listening to these talented people, yes feeling uncomfortable, but letting go and losing myself.  we loved every minute of it and would like to try and see it again.  but maybe when there is less stress in our lives.

we got out of there with time to get a bite to eat, pick up the kids and get to school in time for the movie.  see it all works out in the end, if you believe.
