Play week is not for the faint of heart. It is a tremendous amount of work and I will be standing a lot this week. A LOT!! I hope I can find my black crocs, because I am going to need them. Which reminds me, I have to find a black t-shirt sometime this week, or go buy one or something, because the ones I had are just too unimaginably big and I think I thrift shopped them. I am so impetuously compulsive sometimes about that sort of thing. I am sure those big t-shirts would have been fine..... ugh.
So tonight, it is full dress and makeup dress rehearsal, and I am going to be putting makeup on the main cast members. I am excited about this, being able to do the lions and scarecrow's makeup, PLUS the witches and the tin man!! And Dorothy, but I just need to glam her up a bit, she can do fine on her own mostly. I adore this part of makeup, including sliding eyeliner on the nervous and blinking furiously boys that are in the cast. Some of my favorite moments of hilarity and bonding have taken place while staring at the anxious eyelids of the play cast members. It is an intimate moment in time, so to speak, lots of fears have been revealed over eyeliner.
I am making sure to pack healthy food, including some of the copious amount of hummus I made last night and probably will have some almond milk along to make a protein shake. I will need the energy to teach all day, then go directly to makeup and then to staging and marking for dress rehearsal tonight. The first dress rehearsal generally finishes after 8:30 pm. With 49 munchkins involved...... oy. They will soon find out that the witch really resides behind the stage, as I do not take any fooling around when we are in character..... something that the big kids understand, but the little kids don't quite get. Sorry kiddos, Mrs. Oswald has been taken over by one of her other personalities.
So weekend update- I did end up getting the card table- even though we went and had Chinese last night to avoid the whole cooking thing. Which is cool as I have lunch now for today, since I did not get all the cooking done I had planned yesterday.... but that is fine. I had NO IDEA that the Chinese place had a tofu dish. YAY!
I got a 5.5 mile walk in also, even though I swear people were conspiring to goof up my afternoon to myself. I didn't exactly get what I planned for, but oh well. It was good enough.
One week from today people- one week from today begins my spring break, and I begin it with............drum roll.............. a dentist appt!!! WTF????? WHAT WAS I THINKING??????? I can't even.
But then I can go to the gym all day if I want!
Can't think about that now, too much to do before that.
So a few weekend photos, I have a couple including a stone house one or two and a few other little things. Because it reminds me that life will be back to "normal" soon
