This has been a week to remember, or not, I guess, depending on how you look at it.
I had a blessedly slow week as far as work is concerned, although, that sucking sound you hear is my will to live being pulled out of me because the few meetings I did have got moved because, well, people don’t consider me important I guess, and they are unable to manage their own calendars or keep their appointments. So, what this all means is that this coming week is shaping up to be quite hellish. On Thursday, for instance, my calls start at 7 AM and don’t end until 5 PM.
My biggest stressor this week besides work was preparing for an audition. The Microsoft Theater Troupe is performing Into the Woods in October, and as musicals are my true love, I figured I’d try out. I hate auditions, but I did get it over with. I was less worried about the song than I was about the monologue, since I don’t have one readily prepared. I figured out that I’d do a monologue that I had done 21 (!) years ago, because it was short, to the point, and I could do it in different character voices. I ended up doing a Valley Girl – even though I’m not exactly convinced that Valley Girls still exist.
Thursday, as I was preparing, the fire trucks showed up here, and it so happened, one of my neighbor’s houses burned down. I’m somewhat ashamed to say that I don’t know this person, but since the ash from this person’s house landed on mine, I feel as if I should.
Saturday, the Sweetie played “The Bite of Seattle,” which, with this weeks absolutely perfect weather, was wonderful.
However, we woke up this morning with no hot water. So, we have to figure out what to do about that, which should be fun. I do feel blessed that it’s summer and not the middle of winter.
