Here I am

Bye Bye Birdie opens tonight! I've completed all my classwork, and am preparing for juries next week.  Auditions for thesis shows and exit interviews are also next week, and the second weekend of Birdie.  After that, all I have on my plate is the production of Romeo and Juliet we're doing at the end of May.  I'm playing Lady Capulet.  If Don and the kids can hang on one more week, life should settle down a bit.  Granny leaves tomorrow, which will be very sad.  It's been great having her here. We're considering our summer travel plans and trying to work out getting everywhere we want to go as cost effectively as possible.  As of now, I have no summer work lined up, which means no summer income.  I keep praying some commercial work will come through, but nothing so far.

Sheesh! Okay!
It was tech for Birdie this past weekend. It's finals week.  I'm writing a play and trying to finish a rough draft before the May first deadline for fall lab proposals.  We have juries coming up, auditions for thesis roles, and I'm beginning rehearsals for a production of Romeo and Juliet in two weeks.  I've recently had two auditions for movie roles, but haven't heard about either of them.  Granny is here for two weeks, Scooby got his green's been a little busy!!!

EDIT: Tonight's extra bonus...dead van!

Bullet Points

Good news: Don has accepted a job offer with HP starting April 18th.  It's in the same location, doing the same job, but it's a "full-time" vs. a "contractor" position, and there's a small bump in pay.  Cinderella has starting cheerleading/pom-pom classes on Friday evenings.  She's over the moon. Scooby has his Tae Kwo Do green belt test this afternoon, and my rehearsal starts late enough that I'll be able to stay for the whole thing. He also really enjoyed his Chesapeake Bay Foundation field trip (3 days/2 nights in a tent with other middle school boys) and they only got rained on once.

Bad news: Scooby forgot his toothbrush during the trip.  Ew.  He also has a plantar's wart that we've been working on getting rid of for about three weeks now.  He also has a rodent infestation in his school.  Double Ew. Cinderella has what we believe to be ringworm on her chest.  Which, in case you don't know, is NOT a worm, but a fungus.  However, the definitive test results won't be in for 28 days.  It can take up to two months to go away, and is contagious in the meantime.  Triple Ew.
