    Haven't tried them yet, but I found a couple that looked promising.

    Wednesday
    House stuff, gathered last minute props, etc.
    Left overs for supper. Pork loin roast. No veggies.
    Chai

    Opening Night
    Very good, all things considered. I made some mistakes. My “calls” were off a few times.
    I hate that. I expect perfection from myself. As far as I’m concerned, it’s OK for the actors to make mistakes, but technically, I need perfection. Of course, my lights and sound guys are teenagers...this is the Audio guy’s 1st performance too.

    Post performance “meeting” at the local bar. No white wine, so I had a Smirnoff Ice cooler and then a vodka with club soda and bar lime. The table ordered nachos and fries. I had a few nachos and a bout a handful of fries. The fries had a coating on them (flour?) By the time I got home, my stomach was swelled up larger than my chest.

    Thursday
    Chai
    Took MIL to London for a 2-year check up for her broken/replaced shoulder.
    Bought really cute fingerless mitts at the hospital gift shop.



    You can see my Paris bracelet.

    11 am apt., left hospital at 2
    Lunch was at Tim Hortons (FIL’s choice) @ 2:30. I had a bowl of chilli, no bun.
    I bought a really cute purse that I’m going to use as yet another camera bag when we were in a shoe store for my In Laws.
    "Cause you can never have too many camera bags



    I put a padded liner from another bag inside it:


    We got home by 4:30 & I poured a glass of red wine. Supper was quick and simple: pork chop, cauliflower, carrots and rice.



    I thought up the curtain speech on the way to the play while drinking my Chai

    2nd Night
    I was happier with the play.
    Still mistakes (mine), different ones, but still.
    It wasn’t “perfect”. That bothers me. I want perfect.
    The entrances and exits were tighter. Lines were better, even a little acting improv.
    Another post performance “meeting” at the local bar. I had a Smirnoff Ice cooler and NO Fries

    Don't you just hate it when you feel like having a glass of wine, so you go down to the basement, pick a bottle, bring it up, un-cork it, pour some in a glass, and then when you go to put the open bottle in the fridge, you find the bottle you opened yesterday...





    I'm NOT getting old!

    Friday

    I slept in till 9.
    Home Instruction from 10:30 - 12:30
    A little local shopping in town, I bought a ceramic mug.



    Frittata for lunch @ 2
    Took the Butterflies for a short walk around the barns.
    Taught them the 1st part of a new task. Closing cupboard doors when asked. It was going great until Lily bopped her nose when I was opening a door. Now she won’t come near the cupboards

    Prepared for the play. Again. Supper was left over leftovers from 2 days ago. And some red wine.

    There was a great crowd at the play! TONS of laughter! At one point I had to ask my sound guy if he was playing the sound effect, ‘cause there was so much laughter I couldn’t hear it!

    I dropped in to the post performance “meeting” for a few minutes, but then went to the Deer Hunter’s night (I hadn’t seen my Farmer all week). Good thing I went ‘cause I had to drive him home. (I had one Malibu Rum with cranberry juice and gingerale)

    "Just a little vodka" for the hunters:

    Ugh

    Why didn't anyone tell me that the Stage Manager/Technical Director also has to deal with ALL the backstage drama!

    Actors
    Directors

    I mean, seriously. I feel like a mom or a recess supervisor. Play nice children.


    Not to mention the poor fellow in the wheelchair stuck in the elevator before the play started! Firemen had to open the door and lift him 18" out of the elevator!
