Gack. I dislike rehearsal days like today. This typically would be a day off: not only is it Monday, but it's the day after our designer runthru. Of course it's also NYE and one of my actresses has a birthday so there are many distractions. Mind you - we don't have today off so that we can have tomorrow off, which is much more important from both a recovery and a football standpoint. But everyone here is wanting to chat about other things, and rehearsal keeps falling into digressions that have nothing to do the show. And all I can think is I had to get myself here, and open the building, and prep for rehearsal and I managed. So could we either just get on with it and rehearse, or go home. Focus people!!
<sigh> To counteract that mini-rant I will now list a few things I am grateful for.
1. That J is off the roads and safely where he will be spending the next few days. (His car went into a ditch yesterday and roads closed and he ended up spending the night in a church. But everything is better now.)
2. I had a lovely, if slow, run this morning.
3. My credit card company forgave the late fee from Dec, since it was the first time I've paid late in a decade.
4. I'll be spending this evening with friends.
I hope that everyone has a lovely evening, whatever your plans are. Be safe.
