My "Surprise"

We had our closing night at the theatre last night. It was great. We sold out and actually had to turn away people who hadn't made reservations. My actors put in amazing work and I was really proud of them. It was a really great learning experience for me, it's a real challenge dealing with 4 completely different women, some egos were involved, not that anyone was really difficult but some people are more sensitive than others and/or require more managing. Actors, they can be so exhausting! I can say that because I am one.

Hubby gave me a present to tell me how proud he was of me. It was a beautiful mirrored silver bangle watch. Gorgeous. We noticed it just before Christmas while we were shopping for a friend and I told him not to buy it, it was not in our budget. But he just couldn't resist. I'm glad he didn't.

Now I'm down with a cold. Crap. But I heard from an old friend back east this morning who is battling breast cancer. I was so happy to hear her voice. I'll tell you more about that later. Now it's time for the oblivion of Nyquil.

I wonder if the cold is a direct result of your body suddenly saying, "It's over! Now chill won't you?"

Congrats on a great night. It sounds like a mad crazy success!

Yeah, I'm pretty sure it is my body's way of saying you don't really want to go to spinning class do you?

So happy to hear your theatre experience was so wonderful, satisfying and well received! I can fully understand how you'd fall prey to the vicious cold virus after the last few weeks. Just getting over my own bug so I hope the Nyquil sets you to rights and that you're back to your kicky self in no time.

(And sorry to hear about your friend. I hope they caught it early enough to make a full recovery.)

I always get sick after a stressed out period of time too. The hubby came through in a VERY nice way!
