Today, I come to you with a crushing headache. It WAS a horrible sore throat after the game on Friday but that seems to have passed quietly away. However, I did manage to work the dance last night without any problems. It was busy and crazy but in a totally fun way. I like to help out when I can.
I got home by 11:45pm but The Teen, who is on tech for ASB had to stay to take down all of the equipment. Dances are not like they were back in the day. They are now these elaborate productions complete with lasers and, movies (yes, movies!) and a host of other technical elements. The set-up took over a day and a half and it took him until 2am to break it all down.
Who can sleep when your kid is out at that hour? Not me and definitely not The Hub so we forced ourselves to stay up until the director brought him home. We slept until nearly 10am today! I still feel tired though.
BTW, have you seen the way teens dance these days? Very interesting.
What’s up this week? Auditions for Oliver and The Girl is actually going for Oliver. Yep. If she gets it, she has to cut her hair (gulp). The Teen is trying out for Fagin and Bill Sikes. Auditions are this Tuesday and Wednesday and callbacks are next week. And of course callbacks conflict with the concert my son is in. Being this busy is a blessing in a lot of ways but it’s also a curse. I know I will miss it but man, it’s hard to wrap my brain around it sometimes.
What am I reading?
Last week I complained that Bellman and Black had no ghosts and now This House is Haunted almost seems to have too many. I am halfway through and it doesn’t quite feel genuine to me, but I am giving it the benefit of the doubt for now.
What am I cooking?
Not a thing. My head hurts so much right now that I am actually forced to put my book down. So, we are about to order Chinese take-out. Perhaps some spice will burn whatever the heck I have, right out of my head.
What am I watching?
Ugh. The Girl is watching Spongebob right now and the noise… ugh, the noise..,please make it stop! I feel like crawling into bed to watch some I Love Lucy. In fact, I may do that right after dinner.
