A Hectic kind of Time

I am trying to hold my breath until Sunday afternoon. On Sunday afternoon my show will be over, the plant puppets will be returned and my life will be joyfully peaceful for an entire week.

I am being furloughed. I know, weird huh? I am a school teacher and therefore because there is no money to be had in California the students get an entire week off in the middle of February. It is a bit crappy not to get paid but I am also not going to do any work either so I guess it is a trade off.

Little Shop of Horrors needs to close before this joyous week of bliss. I have choreography rehearsal today, dress rehearsal tomorrow night til 9:30 pm. First show Friday at 7 pm, second show of the weekend is our only matinee at 2 pm and then we having closing night at 7 pm that same evening. Sunday morning I drive the puppets home to Tracy. Then I sleep and enjoy the quiet of my home

...I might pass out from holding my breath but I am certainly going to try.

Migraines are fun

I have had a headache for 5 days straight. It is not much fun, let me tell you. I can make the headache go away with strong pain killers but as soon as the meds wear off it is right back. I don't like it much. I don't enjoy having a headache. It makes me a bit cranky to be honest.

I want it to go away. I don't like it anymore.

Rolling with the Punches

It is a lot harder than it sounds when the punches thrown are this hard. I am losing out on things that I really want. It is hard. I don't like it.

Stress at work is horrific. I have a show opening in 9 days. We need about 2 weeks more than we have. "Luckily" I have a six hour rehearsal this Saturday that will hopefully help us get on par for our production. I would like to be under par though.

I have a constant headache that wont go away. Oh and my dr. called to tell me that I have a nodule in the right side of my thyroid which could or could not be a problem. fun.

on Feb 19th I start a week long furlough. Feb 20th after I return puppets is when mine actually begins. I can't wait til that time.
