A Smattering

This month is speeding by, and it's only just begun.

The countdown is on for June, when I go to California to get lasik done by a specialist, then return home to pack and leave for the summer! I don't believe that it's possible to "tempt fate" - so I'll just say it - I'm very excited that in less than a month, barring complications, I'll be able to see again for the first time since I was five years old!

I'm going through Sound of Music on average of three times per song, and one complete run through each day (I had to take a break over the weekend - it's too early to be getting tired of the musical already). Yesterday I sang for an hour and a half. I'd really like to get my Kiss Me Kate score already. I have two more roles to learn, and it would be nice to get started! (Oh, for those who don't know -surely I posted it SOMEwhere down there - I'm playing Maria in Sound of Music, and Hattie and understudying Kate in Kiss Me Kate this summer)

I'm hired now by three temp agencies, Nannying, Filing Books at my local used bookstore, and now entering bibliographical information into Endnotes from stacks of journals. You would think that I'd be making ends meet since my shows ended a week ago, but the truth is, things are very tight. I'm really banking on my tax return and economic stimulus check showing up soon. So far, between three agencies, I've only had a day of work.

My roommates are both gone for the next few days, so it'll be all Sound of Music, all the time.

And I've managed to clean a good portion of my car out, pick up my room, make my bed, and finish several sewing projects I've been meaning to do, but didn't, since I hadn't set up my sewing station yet. Now it's up, and I'm off like houses afire.
