MIA: A Sad Story and Other Things
So it’s been a couple of weeks since I’ve posted. I know, I suck.
As you know by day I’m an actress and I’ve started another school tour run which will transfer to a big playhouse in the middle of this month. The three person show I’m in only rehearsed for 2 week before opening. We perform anywhere from 10 to 15 times a week at 5 to 10 schools. My day goes a little like this: wake up early, meet the van, drive to the school, unload, build the set, perform, Q and A, tear down the set and drive to the next school. Blah, blah, blah. It’s tough on the body and the brain, but it’s totally worth it.
Last week The Husband and I had our own craziness at home. We got the keys to our new apartment (YAY!), started to move our stuff in (ugh) and last Sunday The Husband and I suffered a miscarriage.
It was scary, and painful and I spent time in the hospital. But, like they say, “the show mus go on”, and it did. Last week I performed 9 shows. It was really hard to be around children, but I did it. I only cried a few times while at the schools, but I made it through. His mom sent me beautiful flowers and gave me her medical wisdom the whole way through and my mother spent the weekend with us to help us during these transitions.
So, that my friends, is what I’ve been up to these past couple of weeks.
