I just got home from rehearsal. We ran the whole show tonight. Words can't really describe the excitement I feel right now. I'm never going to be able to go to sleep tonight. (of course, that could be because of the huge white iced mocha I had at 6 this evening to give me energy for the rehearsal!) But seriously, it was really cool to see the whole thing in sequence. I recorded it and am burning it onto two CDs right now so I can run my lines in my car. We have to be off book by next Wednesday and I'm not ready for that yet. I will be by then, though. I'm determined to be!

I finished the contract I was working on and mailed it off today. That's another big work project out of the way. The fundraiser continues to move right along. I think it's going to go well, but I'm a little nervous about some of the details. That's pretty normal for this stage of the planning, though, so I'm sure everything will be okay.

I realized I haven't talked much about knitting lately, so here goes. I stopped working on the log cabin blanket for a little while so that I can concentrate on a couple of small purses. My mother and I both need one for our big road trip this summer, so rather than trying to find a bag that's the perfect size, I'm making them instead! I'm modifying a couple of patterns that I've seen in books to make a sort of hybrid using the components I like from both. I hope it works out the way I think it will, because if it does, it'll be great!

I didn't write today, but I'm planning to get some time in tomorrow. I might have to start getting up early so I'll have time for writing before I start my day... especially if I'm going to have more of these late rehearsals. I should be waking up earlier anyway, instead of sleeping until the very last minute and then rushing to get ready for work. I think I'll try that tomorrow and see what happens.

Something happened today that made me think about myself. I wore a new shirt (that I bought at Layne Bryant the day before) and since it was new and pretty and bright like springtime, I decided to wear makeup and flat iron my hair. Everyone at work freaked out. They kept asking me if there was a guy or if I had a job interview. It made me stop and think about what I must normally look like when I go to work. So I've decided to make more of an effort in that respect. Maybe I'll go shopping some more. I really do need new clothes, and having new things to wear always makes me feel like putting on a face and taking some time to really fix my hair rather than just brushing it.

Anyway, that's what's been going on!

    Glad to hear the play is going well! Waking up earlier in the mornings was a chore I faced off last Fall--it wasn't easy but the days I do it I feel fabulous!
