Go, Go, Go Joseph!

This is my first year as the Producer for E’s school musical. It’s only my third year doing anything theatre related whatsoever. In this type of setting, the Producer requires no real talents or skill, just the ability to Organize and Manage on MASSIVE SCALES. I spend a lot of time on the phone and send up to 20 emails a day. AT LEAST. For the last week I’ve been staying up at rehearsals every night so that I can be the liason for the parents. Some nights I stay very busy, some nights I don’t have immediate tasks to...

I put in more than 25 hours of time at E’s school helping with “Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat” this weekend. It’s been amazing and I’m just in awe by the students and the adults working on the production. So much talent and they all make me so happy. BUT – I’m super tired and at some point in time yesterday evening – while I was still at the school bordering on delusional from exhausting – my husband texted me this picture. I think it’s the closest I’ve ever come to ACTUALLY DYING from cuteness overload. (Please excuse the...

Team Mommy

I know it seems like just last week that I was talking about how busy I was with Alice in Wonderland…but it was actually TWO weeks ago. Which is plenty of time to jump head-first into the show I’m actually “producing” (I put that in quotes because I don’t want anyone to take the title of “producer” too seriously as I have no idea what I’m doing most of the time) – Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat which opens to the public in ONE WEEK. Hang on…I need to find a brown paper bag to breathe into. I’ll be...

Ready For Some Ew.

With this new blog layout I’m “supposed” to put a picture up with each entry. The temptation was quite strong to photograph what I’m going to be talking about. But instead? I’ll show you some flowers. To counteract the “Ew…” factor of this entry. Last year when I started really running, it was to train for a local famous 10K. I ran on a lot of hills to train for it because the race covers a really BAD hill that everyone likes to talk about being dreadful. I ran in shoes that had always been fine for 5Ks, but the...

An Open Letter To ‘Popular’ Bloggers

I read several “popular” bloggers. I put you in the “popular” category when you get frequent attacks of hate. I never said “popular” was a good thing. I often feel like it’s a bad thing. I have only had hateful occurrences on my blog a few times in the last 8 years. Nothing major. Someone made fun of me for not washing my hair. Someone criticized me for not bathing my child every day. Obviously, the internet has a thing for hygiene. I was upset both times, of course, and definitely publicized it too much. This is exactly what you...
