Well, it’s over. I can’t believe it. We had 3 large audiences this weekend full of whistlers and clappers and screamers and dancers and those audiences? Are the BEST. Three amazing performances by an amazing cast with amazing parents that I’m going to miss with my amazing heart.
Wait. That was one too many Amazings I believe.
My family saw it again Saturday night because I wanted them to be part of those huge, fun crowds and it was totally worth it. I love a good theatre crowd because I love screaming my head off and it’s easier when there are 30+ other people doing the same thing. Nikki loved it so much she gave E this note for his last performance:
I like to think she meant EXACTLY what she wrote. I mean, who needs to be Potiphar or even Joseph if you’re awesome enough to be GOD.
It’s going to take me about a week…or two…to catch up on life. Laundry, blogging, reading and most importantly: TV. I’ve only watched a handful of shows in weeks. My DVR is stacked so deep it may start deleting shows and THAT CAN NOT HAPPEN. If it deletes part 1 on the 2-part Castle just because I’m four weeks behind…HEADS WILL ROLL.
I haven’t read blogs or responded to emails or even returned phone calls NOT related to Joseph. I even came home one day to find a bright orange piece of paper taped to my front door saying: WE ARE SHUTTING OFF YOUR UTILITIES TODAY BECAUSE YOU DIDN’T PAY YOUR BILL.
I feel safe telling you that story because my husband never reads my blog, but OH MY GOD. He would crap a million bricks if he knew how close we came. I immediately paid it online and then thanked the universe for letting me be in a position where I get that notice because I accidentally forgot to pay, not because I didn’t have the money to pay. I got plenty of those notices back in the Single-Working-College-Student-Mom days.
So…we still have utilities…Yay! No permanent damage done and I now have tons of memories and great friends all from this war we fought together getting this production to the success it was.
And I even was able to sneak backstage to grab this intermission shot with E before he changed out of his hippie clothes. He only wears this for one number but it suits him well and I wanted proof of it for the history books.
Thank you for coming along with me on this crazy ride and not laughing at me for almost getting my utilities turned off. Or, if you did laugh, thank you for doing it where I couldn’t hear you.
