It's been rather awhile, yes? Well - two show openings nearly back-to-back will NEARLY KILL A PERSON. Or at least, make a person who is not used to even one show opening very... tired. Tired, but grateful.
I am no longer tired! I'm instead WALLOWING in free evenings! "Free"! Free to work on class plans and grading and all other manner of things that I didn't really neglect, but didn't have my full attention span directed towards. (I would rewrite that sentence, but no.)
I re-arranged my office. Yet again. And by that I mean I moved around the other half of it that is not actually my office. There was dead space up there. I moved the bed and created a cove of sorts in front of the other window. I don't have pictures. Yet. But it's great. I'm such a homebody in so many ways. I love it up there completely. It's perfect. It is my BOUDOIR for real.
I realized last night, though, that I CANNOT grade up there. Must keep certain tasks away from the Sacred Space. I fully confess to not loving grading. It's the only part of my job I have to chain myself to. I do get something out of it, but it brings out ADHD I didn't even know I had. Grading.
But enough about that. After I get caught up today, I'm getting back to writing. I'm re-instating my 30-minutes-a-day rule/plan. Since I have to make rules and plans.
Oh yeah, my show went very well. Very well indeed. I learned a lot. I have other Writing News on the horizon, TBA. Snake Oil is gearing up. I'm project manager/dramaturge, SCORE. Am also writing a play for The Canton Repository's bicentennial. !!! Writing.
Friday, I FINALLY GET A NEW COMPUTER!!! I'm afraid. Of the learning curve. I've had my current one for EIGHT YEARS. I know I'll be all crotchety and crabby about it. Newfangledness and all. But I'm excited for all that. :) It will indeed be nice to no longer live under the constant tyranny of the Spinning Pinwheel of Death.
My parents came to visit, because Oscars. I wrote a post about that and other things. Pretty hardcore. Might post it sometime. Not finished.
But Mom and I went thrifting, oh yes we did.
Haul. It involves, amongst other things, two vintage NOS silk chemises for $3 each, a vintage silk LIBERTY PRINT scarf for $1, a Disney Uncle Remus book that I've wanted for awhile for $2, some puzzles including a tailgating-themed Springbok (puzzle company of puzzle companies) for $2... and on.
I also found this and was sad. I debated buying it but I settled for taking a pic.
I miss my dog. A lot. All the time. So, I'm also commemorating this dog that I'm sure someone loved or loves a lot. And it's just really cute. And sad.
So that catches me up a little. For NOW. :)
