The Sun is Shining!

Theatre was amazing. :-) Yes, it is always a lot of work and yes, by Sunday, we're all exhausted and "punch drunk" to quote Michele and Kristy! But it was amazing. The experience is always invaluable. Working with so many wonderful people and making new friends.... I can say sincerely that I do not regret a moment. :-) 

We did not have many flubs.. one that sticks out in my mind happened on Saturday in the first act. One line was forgotten and we had to figure out where we were at. :-) It took a couple minutes of floundering before everything was back on track. It was not terribly obvious to the crowd, though. We didn't come out of character and the story line stayed the same. 

Yesterday, I was so tired. I made it through the day (it was a good day!) but by the time I got home, I was almost falling over. I went to bed at 10 or so and slept like the proverbial log. I woke up feeling really good. :-) Energy level is up, etc. The only thing is my allergies are kicking in with spring. Or shall we say, with the dust. However, I will just carry around tissue with me and be fine. :-D 

I worked almost all day in the photolab yesterday. It was closed on Saturday because there were only three of us on the floor that day (well, Marcia left mid-afternoon because of a funeral... which left just Anna and myself..) and we had stock to put on the shelves. So yesterday, we had a lot of photo orders that needed to be filled. Plus, a lot of older people came in to get pictures. It's really interesting watching/helping them trying to figure out the computers and all this digital photography. I find it fascinating to think how many ways they have seen pictures get developed over the years. Sometimes I wish I would have been born earlier to have been able to learn the older processes. I do like the digital process though. :-) And I love my job. :-D 

Jesse and I have our own address now! We received a phone call from the post office that they had a box for us. We're both so excited. :-) We spent time discussing how we were going to remember the Box #. Neither of us are good with numbers. Our methods are quite different but it helps that we both have siblings born in 1987. Lol. 

I haven't been able to work anymore on wedding details since last week but I'm hoping in the upcoming days to be able to work on guest list. My mom, sisters and Lindsey are throwing a bridal shower for me up in Endeavour on May 6th. Mom said I could invite anyone I wanted to. So, if you're in the area around that time, drop in. :-) I am really looking forward to it. It will be lots of fun to see everyone again... especially the kids. I received a letter from Ruth yesterday and I am a little homesick for them. 

So... today I work and teach and enjoy my evening. I am able to teach one of my students an hour lesson today to make up for the one I had to cancel when I was sick. I am glad for that. After this week, I will only have around five students to make up lessons with. It's simply a matter of organization. (Which isn't a strong point of mine!) Lol. 

What have you all been doing lately? Have you been learning anything lately? Discovered something exciting? Does anyone like 1920's era music? 

I'm not previewing this because I need to run to work right away... I have high hopes of it's readableness. :-) Ya'll have a great day!

I slept like the proverbial log last night too. But I suppose getting up at 6, starting work at 8 and working till 6pm will do that to a person! ;)

I never have allergies but yesterday we were working around dust, pollen and the house (we were moving a guy from one house to another) smelled a bit like cigarette smoke so I think the combo of all 3 really got to me. I woke up feeling a bit stuffy and having to cough/sneeze. I'm fine now though.

Oh, how fun to have a bridal shower coming up for you! I wish I could come. Oh, I really do!!
I'm sure it will be quite enjoyable though.

I would love to work in the photolab. I'd love to take my pictures AND develop them. That would be really cool. and I think it would be fun to learn how to develop film etc... too.

Be sure to post pictures of the shower. :)

Exciting... hmm, well I finished my first feature screenplay. :) It's really broken though. But I have high hopes. :)

I will e-mail you soon, dearie! :)

Naomi said...

Will do. :) I'll snatch Lyddy's camera and take tons of pictures. ;)

Ohh... that is exciting! I'm so happy for you. :) Can I read it sometime??

Looking forward to the email. :)

Hi Naomi,

I just stumbled across your blog using the blogger nav bar today and I
was like 'whoa! this girl and I should be friends!'

I just turned 25 and I was a theatre major in college. I'm on the verge of getting engaged
and possibly moving to a foreign country.I love books, Doctor Who and...
actually all the stuff in this list of yours: "chocolate, God, books,
art, movies, fine food, friends, writing, beauty, photography,
theatre, children, music and lots of joy." (well, photography is not a
passion but I do like it. :) ) And, most of all, I'm desperately in
love with Jesus!

I know this is totally random and I hope this isn't too weird to you.
But I've been praying for God to lead me to good blogs and, of course,
the people attached to them.

My name is Pamela and you can look at my own blog. You'll see me around your site as
I read it and probably comment.

Your sister in Christ,
