Monday on Tuesday
This idea of posting my annoyances on Monday will only work if:
a. I remember I said Monday would be my crabby day and
b. I actually get online on Monday.
Which I didn't yesterday. I had a costume parade for Into the Woods, which went well, but I have several little things to finish and one big one. It opens the 13th; were in good shape. This is the 'bad' time of show costuming for me and it happens every show. It's the time when I've spent so much time on the show, all I want to do is "me" stuff. I have a zillion other projects I want to work on (hello Bottled Rainbows! I miss you!) but can't because I. Must. Finish. AND Shakespeare officially starts next week so I must get those designs done, like, NOW. I'm thinking I'll schedule tomorrow as a "me" day and at least pull out one Rainbow block. For my own sewing mental health.
I was asked to costume a show for a new director and I'm really having a difficult time deciding whether or not to do it. There are lots of pros & cons:
-the theatre is quite a distance and gas t'aint cheap but I don't have to make many trips because of the ease of the design and I don't have to be at performances. I just deliver the costumes.
-I have a bunch already happening in the fall (TCC, church Christmas program, NEW GRANDBABY!) but it's a new theatre and new exposure
-the costumes aren't difficult; mostly Biblical time stuff, but they could become time consuming because of the bulk of them
-I like doing new shows I haven't done before. I learn something every show I do.
I really have to pray about this one.
This week's gripes:
1. The huge black birds that wipe out the bird seed in my feeders in a day and scare off the cardinals and finches.
2. TV shows that are STILL talking about the wedding
3. Algebra and Scientific Notation. Okay, math lessons in general.
