Light at the End of the Tunnel

Yes, I am still alive. My daughter and I just finished our play, "The Music Man" in which I played one of the Pick-a-little Ladies. Not only was I in the play and busy with rehearsals, I agreed to design and paint sets too, so I've spent pretty much the last two weeks at the church. This is my Daughter and I getting ready for the Saturday Matinee show.
Last night was also my last session of the communtiy college class I've been taking.
I haven't been in a classroom OR a play for about 24 years, so this was quite an experience for me. I've been out of my comfort zone!

I may have been in a rut before, but I miss my rut. I'm ready to hop back in. Should the need arise, I may take another class someday, or be in a play, that was fun. But if I ever agree to design and paint sets- just shoot me or make reservations at the local mental hospital, because I can't take that again!
In the next picture I am in the center, and you can get a look at some of the set painting behind us.It's nice to be back on the bloggosphere, and the kitchen table for that matter.


  1. You guys look so great! And The Music Man is one of my very favorite musicals.

    Glad you're still alive!

  2. I am so happy you made it, it is so much work, but well worth it. The sets look amaziing! I'd love to see more.

    I worked on our Suessical sets and on the first night one of them broke, the stage crew duck taped the set back together- right over the art I spent hours painting...and left it. I vowed to never paint for that paticular city again! (and they called me next year!).

    I want my rut, too. I will be back soon!
