The solstice was yesterday. I spent most of the day inside, at work during the day and at rehearsal for Cinderella in the evening. would normally consider this unfortunate, but yesterday it was in the low 90′s and humid– the kind of whether that saps my energy. Plus the sun is so intense this time of year. I walk home from work with the sun beating down on me and am convinced I can feel it giving me skin cancer. I’m totally serious about that, I sort of cringe all the way home and am rather stressed by it. I guess I’m a bit of a hypochondriac.
Madeline’s graduation party went well! All her artwork looked fantastic up on the walls, it was really impressive and people enjoyed looking at it. It was a warm day and we did run out of iced tea… we had over 30 people come and most stayed the whole time. It was a lovely party and I’m glad we had it. The house-cleaning frenzy before the party was exhausting, but we’ve enjoyed having a cleaner house (except for the spare room, where a lot of stuff got chucked! We’ll work on that later…)
Madeline and I are both involved withCinderella up at our theatre guild, she’s in the show, I’m stage managing along with friend Denise. I am enjoying it– it’s a truly wonderful cast, extremely talented and also a generous and hard-working cast. No egos, no prima donnas or prima donalds as we like to call them. We have 3 shows this weekend, and 4 next weekend, and that will be over. I don’t plan on getting involved in any more shows for a while.
I found out 2 days ago, via a letter, that the PTA program I’m starting in the fall is on probation with the organization it gets it accreditation from. The cause is low graduation rates, which they have been working on and the letter said they expect to get their full status back, but it is still worrying. Not sure what I will do about it. It’s been the one ow spot int he past few weeks, but it’s a pretty serious one. Sigh.
