Friday Free-For-All – 04/10/15

Friday

Legally Blonde opened last night! It. Was. AWESOME! We had a sold out house, and the audience absolutely loved it. Things went so smoothly, and everyone was so full of energy. Words can’t explain the adrenaline high that I get from performing live. It’s so incredibly exciting and rewarding. And we get to do it 4 more times! Yay!

I’m completely exhausted already. After the show last night, there was a champagne and hors d’oeurves reception at the theatre, and then there was an after party at a local pizzeria, so I didn’t get into bed until about 2, and then I was up at 7 to get to work. I’m hurting today. Not in the sense that I drank too much last night (I had two drinks), but in the sense that I’m so tired I feel hungover. Sucking down tea, coffee and water and trying to wake up.

Throat Coat tea and honey are my best friends. I was practically hoarse when I woke up this morning, but after about 5 cups of this delightful concoction, I feel 100% better.

It’s supposed to be in the 60’s all next week! After the show is over this weekend, my self-imposed moratorium on running is up. I’m going to take a couple of days of complete rest to recover from the show-week craziness, but then I’m SO EXCITED to do some outdoor running in the delightful warm weather that we’ve got coming up.

Are you experiencing spring-like weather in your neck of the woods?

    YAY! So glad things went well – and I know from seeing the drain on my kids just how exhausting it is doing these shows and integrating into ‘real life’! Good luck with the rest of the shows!

    That’s awesome, congrats on opening night! We are NOT experiencing Spring like weather…if anything, WINTER! It’s now raining but I need to wear my mitts because it’s so cold out! Enjoy your outdoor running!

    Congrats!!! I’m so glad to hear your first performance went wonderfully. Hope the rest of them are just as good if not even better!!!
    I am also psyched about the spring weather coming. I desperately need the warmer weather 🙂
