Wow. I'm posting for the first time on the new blogger. It looks weird. Anyway, enough of that... ;)
I have three shows left of Forbidden Broadway. The costume changes are a nightmare, but it's a very fun show to do. I have fun every night, and the cast is very talented. Theatre is such a cool family that grows every time you do a show. New friends are always good! It's fun doing shows with Way Off Broadway because you work really hard for a couple of weeks, then you perform for a couple of weeks, and then you're done. I love the quick process of it all.
Emma & Suzanne are coming down this weekend. This is the first time they've ever stayed with me. They're coming to my show tonight, and then they're going to Wizard of Oz at the high school tomorrow night. Luckily, it runs for two weekends, so I'll get to see it next Saturday, I hope.
I'm trying AGAIN to refinance my house. I had the papers all signed today. I need to get a few documents rounded up to take in to them on Monday, and then the waiting game begins. I'm not optimistic after the debacle this summer, but it's worth trying.
Then, I got busy, and I never finished the post.
So, NOW, I can write about how the weekend actually went!
It was GREAT having Emma & Suzanne here. Emma and I cleaned out all the stuff in my Barbie house, and she reorganized the whole thing as only an 8-year-old can. I loved having them stay with me.
We had the best show on Saturday night. It was electric. It's such a funny show. Every show was good, but the houses were disappointing. I'm choosing to remember Saturday night the most because the crowd made it so fun.
Finally in the Annie dress after 30 years of waiting!

One very cool thing happened on the Sunday matinee, our closing show. One of my mom's best friends drove down from Iowa City to see me. It was awesome seeing her again after all these years, and in a way, it felt like a little piece of my mom was there at the show. There's a part of my mom that lives in her friends. That part is not easily accessible to me, so when I see them, I can feel her there. I think it's that way with all of us. I think there would be part of me that would live on in Tracy, Jeff, Suzanne, Andrew, and others who really know me. It made me so happy, and hugging her, well... it was a little like hugging my mom. Thank you, Kaye!
