This day was hit-and-miss with the weather – sometimes bright and shining, while bouncing back to overcast skies with higher chances of rain.
Saturday was spent with the dogs who have missed having me at home for long stretches of time. I managed to accomplish some laundry, and a few other things around the house while also napping and watching documentaries.
After a delicious Mexican dinner at La Pinta, Laura and I moved on to Centerville High School to watch my students in lead roles for the musical, CURTAINS, with a book by Rupert Holmes, lyrics by Fred Ebb, and music by John Kander. I had never seen the musical before Saturday evening, and I thought it was adorable.
While we were eating, I checked the weather because I could feel my weather-related MS symptoms creeping up on me. The radar, however, changed as the show got underway. Halfway through Act One, I sensed the huge shift in the barometric pressure that forced every muscle to tighten its grip and cause severe pain to shoot throughout my entire system. I managed to stay present in the moment and enjoy the production, but I was forced to leave immediately after the curtain fell and didn’t get to see my kiddos.
The show was hilarious, and I enjoyed it!
I was home and in bed by 10:30 PM where I stayed all of Sunday except to feed and/or let the dogs. All the lessons were conducted via Zoom, and I appreciate all the students accommodating me in this manner.
Monday kicks off another terribly busy week, finding the latter part to be hectic as FROZEN opens this week at The Schuster Performing Arts Center.
