Thursday Thoughts

{one} Today was rough. I just felt like nothing was going right! Some days, everybody needs something from me yesterday. And i do these things b/c they're all important, but in the back of my mind is this REALLY IMPORTANT THING (which takes hours)!! Today, around 3, i STILL hadn't gotten to that REALLY IMPORTANT THING & a coworker came & told me she needed this other thing NOW & i told her i couldn't until next week & she said no can do & i kind of lost it. I wasn't mad at her, it was just that there comes a point when i start to really stress about RIT (really important thing) & so the next person who asks me for something gets it! I don't mean to, and I'm sorry. 

After that my boss asked what she could help me with (because, clearly, i was about to lose it), and i told her i just needed some TIME to get that really important thing done! So i went to my office & shut the door (i usually keep it open). I was only interrupted once for the rest of the day, and i got exactly HALF of that Really Important Thing finished. And now i feel a lot better. :) 

{two} I did get my car inspected, though. I have been promising my husband every evening that i would do it the next day on my lunch break. And then the next day... I wouldn't take a lunch break. Today, i ran errands for work in the morning & I made THAT my lunch break. Because i knew once i got back to work i wouldn't be leaving again! The inspection passed & i am glad i can now move on with life & not have to worry about getting my car inspected for another year. GAH! (But that year always comes way too soon, doesn't it?!)

{three} If you have never been to Aveda Institute South for a hair appointment, and live in Baton Rouge, I have a really amazing coupon for you!! Yes, i get my hair cut there & yes they do a great job! They're students but work under licensed educators. So ... let me know if you want a free haircut or really cheap color! 

{four} I finished Karen Kingsbury's first book in the Above the Line series & cannot WAIT to get #2. She has so many books, i can't believe it's taken me so long to start reading them!

{five} I am loving twitter more & more everyday!
(I would love it more if more friends started tweeting HINT HINT!) 

{six} There was a shooting today in LaPlace, which is way too close to Baton Rouge for comfort. Okay, BR is a crime capital, but we don't normally get SHOOTINGS in broad daylight like this one. This happened this morning, at a plant. Two cops are now dead & when i read in the paper that they were only 34 & 27, my heart broke. Some girl like me sent her husband to work that day and he didn't come home. I could just...CRY...every time i think about it.

I have been praying all day for God to comfort the families of those who were lost. And that the two who are injured would have a COMPLETE recovery. 

Please keep them in your prayers!

{seven} On a MUCH happier note (& the part where my crappy day got a lot brighter), i met another blog friend today!!! Megan from Tidbits From my World. She lives in the same city as me, how crazy! I actually met her sister (Lindsey) through blogging first, and then met her (Lindsey) when she came in town (for Megan's baby shower!). Later, i started reading Megan's blog & then she started reading mine & she won a recent giveaway i did, so i thought we'd meet up to get it to her! :) We met at CC's, a local coffee house, and i just LOVE her. She is sweet & cute & easy to talk to. I love her!

{eight} I had to meet Megan & run (pretty much!), though I could have stayed & talked to her for hours! Her sister was like that too (we actually DID talk for hours!). I ran to my in-laws to have dinner with them for my sis-in-law's birthday. The food was DELICIOUS & i always have a good time with them!

{nine} Tomorrow is my first tech rehearsal for Assassins, a show that opens next week at Baton Rouge Little Theater (my happy place). It's so strange that i will just be working backstage, when i have been doing nothing but stage managing, assistant stage managing or performing for the last five years! But it just seems like it will feel good to just be a small part of what goes on instead of in charge of the whole thing (as is the case when you are stage manager!). And it's only a week + two weekends - very short time commitment which i can  handle right now! 

Basically, this is just enough of a theater fix to hold me over until the next show! 

So basically... in case i end up absent on the ol' blog... here is what my schedule looks like...
Tomorrow: tech rehearsal
Saturday: OFF
Sunday: 3 until LATE - tech rehearsal
Monday - Thursday - dress rehearsals 
Friday - opening night performance
Saturday - performance
Next Thurs, Fri, Sat - performances

That's it! And yes, that's a lot next week, but overall, it's a VERY short easy time commitment! :)

I'm excited. But also really tired. So i should go to bed.
