Today I have a whole blessed day alone, off work, at my own house. Until about 10 minutes ago the backyard looked like maybe no one actually lives here, but I busted out the clippers, the mower, the weed whacker, and my own digits to try and change the backyard circumstance. Now I feel much better about the whole scene and I've gotten some bonus exercise. Also my forearms feel like jelly.

We have more shows this weekend, but they are here in Mpls, which means that I have to go to work during the day on the one hand but that I can eat a more balanced and leafy diet on the other. We had a great time in Wisconsin but dude, I ate so much cheese. Soso much cheese. And fried things. During the days we were unscheduled, so I sat by the river with TZ Van EZ most of the time, either talking (a lot) or reading (some). I did dock yoga once. After the show opened, I brought the thunder while playing air hockey. We went tubing on Saturday, which was excellent. Floating down a river in a tube with friends might be one of the top 5 most relaxing activities of my year. I got a sideboob sunburn.

As for the show itself, both performances sold out in Wisco and it went over big. One of the set pieces is a moving traincar that I totally busted my ass on during dress rehearsals, but fortunately I managed to keep myself from falling off of it during actual performances. Another feature of dress rehearsals was my wig, which looked Little Mermaid-esque right out of the box but which improved marginally by performance time. Here's hoping it survived the trip.

If you are ever in a show, I highly recommend getting cast with most of your friends. It makes things so pleasant and entertaining.

I have to teach a single lesson later today and then I am going to eat dinner with my husband. Being at home together on a weeknight feels hugely novel and very nice.


  1. Yay to all of this! Have a lovely evening with your lovely husband (who was very cute on Sunday, all beaming and proud).

  2. I'm so pleased about the show!

    Sorry about your sideboob sunburn.
