Little Shop of Horrors comes to a close this afternoon. My daughter did really well. She’s done many shows but this one and the last one she did, Footloose, showed so much growth as a performer. We are so very proud of her. I will share pics once I have them.
Thank you for the good thoughts and prayers regarding her health during this show. She made it through.
Church, and then we are off to see the show again.
We have a little break this week and then next week, classes start. I can’t believe she will be going into 11th grade.
This week, I am going to begin the writing project that I keep teasing. I don’t mean for it to be a tease. It’s more like I just keep procrastinating. I plan to start and then I don’t. It may not turn out to be anything. I will start on Tuesday with an outline. There. I’ve committed.
I have been reading some great books lately. My review of The Friends We Keep will post this week. I loved it so much.
I just started City of Girls. It’s starting off very strong. I have high hopes for it.
I haven’t been able to watch much this week with all of the rehearsals going on. I did watch the Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee episode with Eddie Murphy. I’ve always loved Murphy. He was really low-key in the episode but mentioned that he is thinking about returning to stand-up. That would be awesome.
New Things I’ve Tried:
Do you guys have Ralph’s or Kroger’s where you are? They make the best Gluten Free frozen pizza on the planet and it’s so inexpensive. I add chopped veggies and sometimes extra cheese to make it really good but on its own, it’s pretty fabulous. It’s allowed me to enjoy pizza once again.
So grateful that my daughter was able to perform as planned. As Bryan mentioned to me in a comment, my kids always seem to get sick before a show but with mandatory rehearsals, performers come to work sick as dogs and it spreads around. Plus, long nights, little sleep, stress and not eating right. It adds up. I try to build their immunity up beforehand but it doesn’t always work.
Keeping with the theatre theme, what is your favorite musical? I love Cabaret.
