Takin' it 1 day at a time. . .

It's Monday. Ug! I'm feelin' it today, too. I was up 'til 2:45AM working on tracks for the show. Luckily, the guy doing the technical end for me (I'm JUST the music director - I just tell him what I want and he does it!:)) was willing to come to me. We sat in my family room on the couch for 5 hours and worked on it. Only 1 more track to fix and then we're ready. He left with the info from me he needed and said he'd work on it this afternoon. Hopefully he'll work on it and contact me soon! My job is almost done! Whew! As soon the music is edited, recorded and loaded in the computer, SFX is loaded - my job is done! I just need to give cast vocal notes tonight and tomorrow and we Preview on Wednesday night and Open on Thursday! YAHOO!!! They are frantically working on set, movie filming and installing the "rain" today! It's going to be nuts down there with costumes, wigs and makeup tonight too! First time for the "rain floor" to be worked in and the "rain"! It is amazing what they are doing though! They have mist, rain (heated water none the less for the actors), a separate 'street' floor that rolls in (with a 30 sec scene change mind you!) and a draining system so that it doesn't puddle on the floor!! You MUST get tix for this!! It's at Hale Centre Theatre in Gilbert, AZ. Runs Thurs, Fri, Sat evenings at 7:30pm and Sat. matinees at 3pm until Mar. 29th. Tix are $22 and $24. Going to be well-worth it!! You have my guarantee! Call 480-497-1181 today!!

Only 4 days to go til my weekend away! Geoff found out he has to work on Friday, which really sucks but I will just do my "Sister's Friday" and then have them drop me off at the hotel afterwards. He will drive straight there from work. I'll pack the night before as planned and put them in the van so I won't have to deal with bags. I'll walk the mall for a couple of hours alone - hit the stores I know Geoff won't want to. Then I'll check in and relax while he arrives and showers. We'll start our weekend with dinner somewhere nice. :) I just can't tell you how nice this will be! I know I've mentioned it before but NEVER more than 1 (one) night away without kids in over 12 years! Crazy!! We deserve this!!! I have to get the show open, get groceries, type up the itinerary for my niece who is babysitting, change the sheets on the bed, laundry caught up and house cleaned all before then too! Is it worth it for a weekend away?!?!? YES!!!
I wish I could take all of you with me, well - not really! But I wish you all the same relaxing weekend. I can't wait to sleep late, watch what I want on tv, not hear arguing in the background, eat out (not mac n cheese or pizza) and not ask for kids menus and go somewhere I want to eat at! Shop a little, relax in the jacuzzi a little, read my book a little, talk a lot with my hubby and just enjoy some time alone with him! To cuddle watching tv without hearing my oldest say "Ew! You two are gross!" I miss him and can't wait for some time alone!

So lucky! We've never been away from our kids for more than 2 nights. We did it one time and that was about 2 1/2 years ago. Enjoy your time away!

Enjoy your time away!
I think it would be really refreshing to go and just focus on relaxing and being with each other.

You are a crazy busy woman!

So excited you have a terrific weekend alone with your honey to look forward to!

Steve has some time off in March and we might be hooking up with some friends from Chicago in Las Vegas - hopefully that pans out because I am soooo needing some alone time too!
