This is where I store the "extra" stuff in my head.

I need to have a tshirt printed that says "I survived Opening Night!" After weeks of practice, Town and Gown opened The Odd Couple, Female Version last week. I was a little nervous all day, but nothing too out of the ordinary. Until I was standing backstage waiting for my cue. The mild butterflies I had all day long had morphed into bald eagles. By the time I stepped out and sat down at the table, my heart was racing and I didn't have a single drop of spit left in my mouth! I was seriously scared. There were actual PEOPLE in the audience and my mouth was so dry, my tongue was stuck to the roof of it! I knew my lines...I just wasn't going to be able to say them. And then.... we got our first laugh and I wasn't scared anymore! The audience was having a good time! They were laughing in all the right places and at times, it was all I could do not to laugh right along with them. It was truly an incredible feeling...like I really HAD been drinking cough syrup! I can't WAIT to get back out there this week!!
I am a working mother of two teens, spoiled dachshund and an effervescent Golden Retriever. AND I have a husband who is addicted to fishing. I love to cook, scrapbook, read, watch movies and hang out with my family and my friends. This blog is a place for me to store the extra stuff in my head!
