I am going to be involved with bringing a Shakespeare in the Park production to my hometown!
Y'all thought I was gonna say I was pregnant, didn't ya? Ha!
My friend Cari has done a lot of theater and wants to start a non-musical theater company locally. I told her I'd love to be involved, and now I am! We plan to do a production of Much Ado About Nothing next summer. Things are really starting to come together, and we started a blog about it this morning.
I have always loved theater, but have never had the time to devote to it that I wanted. I was busy with other things in high school, which is honestly one of my biggest regrets from those years. I've been in a few productions, but always in smaller roles because I wasn't able to commit to anything more.
But this time, I'm committing. For several reasons, I've decided to be an assistant director. I'll be involved and able to help a lot, but also able to learn a lot. I'm so excited about it!!!
I hate flies. I hate seeing them buzz around my kitchen. But I hate killing them even more. Not because I don't want to kill the flies -- I have no problem with the thought of their short lives ending. I just don't want to get out the fly swatter and spend 10 minutes trying to kill one pesky fly, then throw it away. It's annoying and gross.
I am COMPLETELY obsessed with Secondhand Serenade's Your Call right now. I put it at the top of my playlist (instead of in alphabetical order) so that it's easy for me to find. I play it like 5 times a day and belt out the lyrics. I just can't get enough of it!
I'm a fan of Secondhand Serenade's. Every song of theirs makes me feel like it's being ripped right from their heart. Fall for You, Vulnerable....... maybe it's because it's accoustic music, or maybe it's because the singer has this conversational tone to his voice, but every song just sounds like it comes straight from his soul.
Potty-training is.......................not going so well. We have good days and bad days. I'm committed enough to put the Hulk in underwear every day now (as compared to 2 days of underpants and then 3 days of a diaper because I'm tired of cleaning him up), and that seems like it might be helping. He has really good days and really bad days. It's just frustrating. He'll poop in his pants, then go to the potty. Then he'll pee and want me to be happy for him!! It's maddening!
I'm going to buy him a little watch with a timer so that he can be in charge of going to the potty instead of me telling him to do it all the time. Sometimes he's okay with it, but when he's even the least bit grumpy, me telling him to go to the bathroom just makes him not to want to do it. I don't want to force him, so I don't make him go, then 10 minutes later he pees his pants.
Sigh. It'll happen eventually.
I want to see The Time-Travelers Wife. Have you seen previews for it? I'll be honest -- the main reason I want to see it is because Rachel McAdams is in it. (Eric Bana isn't too bad, either!) I developed a serious girl-crush on Rachel after The Notebook and have loved everything I've seen her in since. I would definately cast her as me in the movie of my life. Any movies you're excited about?
And now, 10 random tunes from my playlist.
1. Eight Days a Week -- The Beatles
2. So Far Away -- Carol King
3. Human -- The Killers
4. Hands -- Jewel
5. Gravity -- Sara Bareilles (makes me think of that SYTYCD routine)
6. Tears in Heaven -- Eric Clapton
7. I Walk the Line -- Chris Daughtry
8. If I were a Boy -- Beyonce (I can't help but belt this song right along with her!)
9. Billie Jean -- David Cook
10. This Town -- O.A.R.
**Bonus: I heard it through the grapvine -- Marvin Gaye**
