Friday, show opens, mom comes home!

     So as usual running with scissors.  Lot's of little things to do to get ready.  I can't remember what time mom comes in but sometime after noon.  So I have about 2 hours to get my ducks in a row.  Assuming I have ducks.

     I need to get dressed and clean myself up so I don't forget and get to the theater in a frazzle.  Only have one dress to finish and 4 pairs of pants to hem for customers then a few items for studio.  I want all to be done by noon.  I need to straighten the down stairs a little before mom comes.  That may not get done.

     Dress rehearsal was as usual a technical nightmare.  But I have a faith that it will pull through. Mostly leads not thinking things through and using the music to fill the time on stage.  Nerves will make them do better tonight.  I am way too critical and see every little mistake, for others it is magical.  I hope I can see the magic.  I love the kids, they inspire me.

     This is hub's last day of work.  He has been bringing home all sorts of crap from his office.  There are piles everywhere.  I cannot deal with them right now so am ignoring the mess.  I am good at that.  I feel bad as I have not really had time to pay attention to this huge transition in his life.  Emotionally it has to be hard.  We went to Wal-mart last night and then out for a taco.  We were able to talk a little.  I told him my biggest worry.  It was a good heart to heart conversation.

     Well I had better get ready to get something done.

have a great and productive day!



  1. I'm sure everything will fall into place as it always does and the show will me a smash! Good luck with all your last minute stuff - you'll have more time to talk to hubs when this is all over!

  2. I have no idea how we'll survive financially when we retire but I dream of staying home and crafting. cheaply.

  3. Apologies that I missed this, but did your husband get laid off, or was this a planned step towards hsi retirement?

    1. No he turns 65 on the 19th and he has over 28 years in with the state. It is time his hearing is so bad now.
