To Life

Yesterday at four o'clock I had a violin lesson.
I got home at six, and had to leave at 6:30 for first rehearsal of The Comedy of Errors (*squee*) and I got home from that at 10:15. I finally went to bed at about 11:30, I think.

This morning just as we were about to leave on hour hour-long drive to the big town we do our shopping and appointments and whatnot in, we get a call: "Delaney has a rehearsal today from one to four..." WHAT? So my mom had to frantically rearrange the day. She left my brother and sister to play at her friend's house (who has children their ages) until my dad (he works out there) picked them up. Then she drove me back up here, and I had to apologize for being over an hour late... which didn't turn out to be such a big deal. And I wasn't the only late person.

And now we have a "Game Night" thing with people at our church... we probably won't go - my mom is exhausted! But all I have to say is: is this what it's like for people who have a LIFE?

If so, all I can say is... To life!

And to those quiet minutes I can snatch to write a blog post and read two paragraphs of a book. :(

We had rehearsal today at a gazebo in my town (sort of). It was a nice day, and I just love listening to the other actors speak Shakespeare. They're so LOUD. And awesome.

Shakespeare in a gazebo, how lovely!

You're doing a shakespeare thing?! You never mentioned that....which one is it? :D

Delaney said...

I'm in The Comedy of Errors. :D

Yes, cuileann, it is lovely! And rehearsal (maybe performances too?) are going to be in that gazebo... yay. :D

Oooh, cool, in a gazebo? Neat-o! Aah, I wish I could see you in your play. wow, but it sounds like you had some day!

That is quite the day indeed--a very impersonating-an-extrovert sort of day. And the Shakespeare thing sounds v. cool. Add me to the list of People Who Wish They Could See Delaney's Play.

The Lulu order shipped today! YAAAAY! *rejoicifies*

Er--sorry. I felt inclined to share that wonderful piece of news. Can't think why.

Delaney said...

Because I asked about it on your blog? :P

Anyhow... YAY! :D

Yes, all I wanted was to get back to my little introvert-hole and read.

But you know, it's funny... my life was only like that for two days. Now it's back to quietness, etc.
