Is it Friday? I’m not really sure. All I know is, I’ll be glad when it’s Sunday. My girls have been in plays – two girls, two different plays, two separate locations, for the last two months.
Brianna’s play practice wasn’t too bad since a friend was in it, too, and we shared carpooling. Some of Megan’s practices overlapped, though, which meant that Brian might have to take one girl while I took the other.
The practices have been at 6:00. I don’t know what time y’all eat dinner, but for us that has meant either rushing to eat supper, clean the kitchen and get one or both girls to play practice or eating at 8:00 or 9:00.
Brianna’s play performance was the first two weekends of the month. Megan’s has been this week.
So she had practice Monday and Tuesday; full dress rehearsal Wednesday; matinee performances yesterday and today (which meant she had to be there by 8…in the morning! I know some of you don’t feel sorry for me at all, but those of you who are late sleepers like me feel my pain, right?); and evening performances last night (the only one she’s missed since I didn’t know about it until 9:00 Wednesday night), tonight and tomorrow night; and an afternoon performance tomorrow.
Did you make it through that paragraph? I don’t know how I’ve made it through this week! I’m going to do cartwheels after the curtain call tomorrow night. Except, I don’t know how to do a cartwheel. I think I can learn, though.
On top of that, I had a doctor’s appointment on Monday. It was in a town 30 minutes away. It was rescheduled from two weeks ago because the doctor I see was “no longer with this practice.” Except, when I got there, there was a big sign on the check-in window telling patients about their brand-new location. Want to know where it’s at? About 10 minutes from my house. Staffed by the doctor who was no longer with their office.
Really? You couldn’t have given me that tidbit over the phone?
So, they numbed my finger and dug a crater into it. Seriously, you can’t imagine how big and deep this hole is – they removed an extremely painful wart that came up a couple of months ago. I’d rather have just had the runny-nose-type virus, thank you very much. I would post a picture, but it’s gross. And big. And black.
So, anyway, numbed finger. They told me to take pain reliever for the next 24-hours. They didn’t give me any to take then. And, the van broke down on the way home. Brian had to come get me. Did I mention I was about 30 minutes away from home? With a big hole in my finger? With no pain meds?
Yeah, Monday was a good day. I was very thankful for our built-in catch up day, though it didn’t do us much good this week since we had a play matinee to attend today. Somehow, we managed to stay mostly caught up.
I’m taking Monday off. That is all.
