I'm a little jittery and giddy at the same time. Tonight I'm going to be in a show called Listen To Your Mother at the Memorial Opera House in Valparaiso. I will be one of 14 women reading about the journey of motherhood and I'm really stoked, but getting a bit nervous. The show is sold out. That's a lot of people to picture in their underwear. Ha! Ha!
I hadn't really thought I was nervous about it, at first. My older sister asked if it would make me nervous if she came to the show. And last time I saw my oldest brother, he said, "So are you nervous about getting up there in front of everyone?" So, the talk about being nervous I guess has made me a little nervous. And the show SOLD OUT this week. Guess who bought that very last ticket? My big brother. :)
I'm also so stressed as my book deadline approaches. And I have to be sure not to let all of that envelop me. There's a lot going on for others in the household. My husband had an important event to prepare for. And my oldest is finishing up his high school career, with finals next week and graduation the following week. And there's all the day to day mom stuff going on and field trips and picnics and luncheons and housework.
So, I'm going to have a little lunch -- hubby is making steak and eggs and the grill for me -- and then go for my yearly spring pedi and I'm going to splurge and get my nails done, too. And make up my mind about what I'm going to wear. And enjoy the day!
