Sunday Matters: February Is Here

Sunday Matters

February actually arrived a couple of days ago but I was occupied with:

Wizard of Oz

The show sold out which of course is fabulous. The performers worked very hard and it showed.

The next show is Li’l Abner but my daughter (wait for it), is taking a break from community theatre. However, Grease auditions will happen soon and then she wants to do Little Shop of Horrors in the summer. Her brother was Seymour once. It’s a fun show.

Right Now:

I am very excited because today is Super Bowl Sunday! I am not a huge football fan but I desperately want the Rams to win. I don’t have high school ministry tonight and our TV is all setup and ready to go. Food will be good too. I am making enchiladas and there will be some other traditional foods because The Hub was like, “What? Enchiladas? That is not what you eat on Super Bowl Sunday.”

My response. “What is wrong with you?” How can enchiladas be wrong?

This Week:

Nothing out of the ordinary this week. At some point I want to pick up some paint or stain to re-do a bookshelf I have. I need to re-do it because it’s next to the new TV stand and it looks weird.


I could have sworn my library copy of Golden State came in but I checked all the libraries and it’s still “requested”. I couldn’t wait any longer so I started An Anonymous Girl. It’s just what the doctor ordered. Mysterious. Riveting.


Unfortunately, I got sucked into America’s Next Top Model. I watched it ages ago when it first came out but haven’t watched it since but The Girl likes to watch when her homework is done so that means I get sucked in.

I want to see what Oscar movies are available so I can at least watch a few before the show.

New Things I’ve Tried:

I signed up for an auto-delivery service for things like hand soap, detergent, etc. My first order had a missing item. No biggie but no one, and I mean no one would respond to my inquiry on what could be done about it. They provided a phone number but no one answered. They have live chat but no one responds besides the canned auto-reply asking you to wait. They have a number for 24/7 texts and no one responded either. When I finally got someone on the phone,  I decided to cancel the whole thing. I have no idea if I will get the missing item but the entire process bothered me and it was supposed to save me time.

Why people? Why?

Grateful for:

I am grateful for this full day off to spend time with my family.

Will you be watching the game today? If not? What will you be doing? It’s a very good day to go to the movies.

Sunday Matters: Seeing Green

We are in week 1 of Shrek the Musical so my time around here will be brief this week and next.

Right Now:

I am not working the show today AND my daughter’s cast is not in today’s show either so we will be celebrating Father’s Day. The Hub never made formal plans but food will be involved, for sure.

Later tonight, we kick off a new year in student ministry. This time, high school. I’m a little nervous.

This Week:


I really have to buckle down and read my tour book and one other book. Time! I need more of it.


I am almost done with Perennials, which is the book I picked up because I missed going to camp this year. It is good and pretty much what I needed. Review to come soon. It doesn’t replace the camp experience but it gives me all the feels.


My son came home after work and queued up  Oh, Hello on Broadway. It’s on Netflix. It’s a two-man show and it’s very funny. Like, laugh out loud funny. I highly recommend it. It does have some language so be careful if the kids are in the room.

What do you know? Fear the Walking Dead suddenly got good. I’ll keep it in the rotation as long as it stays good.


I can barely feed The Girl during production week so no, I am not making anything. She is a healthy eater though so finding healthy fast food is a challenge sometimes. Hard to plan eating time into it too when you are rushing from work to the theatre.

Grateful for:

Live theatre. I’ve had the privilege of working backstage for many shows and I’ve seen these kids grow into the performers they are today. Some of them could barely look you in the eye when they started and now they are singing solos to a sold out house and dancing their pants off (sometimes literally).

Live theatre. It changes lives. Put your kids in theatre or support live theatre by attending a show instead of a movie one weekend. It really makes a difference.
