Leading Ladies

The two leading ladies in my life were on the stage this weekend, opening an original production of a musical for kids on Friday night and closing it on Sunday evening. Beth had lines and solo singing spots while Mia was the cutest animal ever to appear on stage. It was awesome but, at the same time, I'm pretty happy to have my family back.

See, shows involve rehearsals and rehearsals involve short family dinners and rushing out of the house as soon as forks are down. After-school activities only narrow the family-time window and increase the amount of stress and urgency. But last night - at least until the next show - that ended and we're one big happy family once again. And we can all get to sleep at a decent hour.

But of course, I won't be sleeping for the next two weeks since a giant work thing dropped on Friday (at 5:00 PM no less) which will consume my every waking moment. Fun times.

As the person who is usually off doing all the performing in my house, it is nice when it is over as well. It is awesome fun being up on stage and performing and getting applause, but I get tired of not getting to have a quiet night spending some time with my babies, and my husband.
