Lowell Macaroni Kid: January 23, 2019

A Note From Your Publisher

By Barbara Evangelista, Publisher January 23, 2019

Giveaway, giveaways, giveaways!  They're flooding in and we're spreading the word!  I just posted two excellent giveaways -- four tickets to American Girl Live at the Boch Center Shubert Theatre in Boston on February 22, and -- next week! -- four tickets to The Lightning Thief: The Percy Jackson Musical at The Hanover Theatre for the Performing Arts in Worcester on Thursday, January 31st.  (There's a great special offer in the Percy Jackson article too!)  Stay tuned for another giveaway that I'll be adding to the site within a few days.

So, the mail at my house has changed recently, in a fascinating way.  My oldest took the PSATs last October just as a practice run (the scores won't be averaged when he takes them for real later this year).  The scores came out last week, and our mail has immediately turned into college central.  Not kidding, of the four letters we received today, three were for him from colleges.  Yikes.  I'm not ready!  I'm really interested to see how he reacts though.  Adulthood looms 😳

Meanwhile, my daughter and I continue with our gluten free journey.  All is going well, and we're starting to see some actual results in our health.

Hubby and I enjoyed a date night out on Saturday with a show at the Merrimack Repertory Theatre.  Slow Food was funny and so enjoyable. Check out my review!
