My life never calms down

I have had a busy week. Craig and I celebrated our 20th wedding anniversary over the weekend by going to LA with the kids and doing the VIP Universal tour. It was made a little more special by the presence of good friends who joined us for the day. The weather in LA wasn't the greatest - 60 and cloudy all day long - but the ten of us had an absolute blast. It all perfectly embodied what Craig and I have been spending the last twenty years doing - building memories that we will always treasure. Our marriage isn't just about us. It's about our family and our friends and everything we've worked to create. This was an excellent celebration of all that.

I ended up getting the directing job at the theater, but as a co-director with the gentleman I know from the festival. We talked for three hours this morning, getting to know each other, and I actually think it's going to be a great fit. We have very similar approaches and temperaments, and our experience complements each other. Auditions will be the beginning of August, and his son is getting married this month, so we won't have to start working on it in earnest until July.

Our board elections were tonight for the band boosters, and I am no longer on it. Thank goodness. I couldn't do it with the play commitment since our rehearsals are during marching season, but I'm still going to function as the communications coordinator and be heavily involved. For instance, I'm still working all three days of high school walk-thru.

I got through the background check for the library job last Thursday, so now I'm just waiting to hear from the library about when I start. I hope it's next week. I have to work our graduation on Saturday. Where is all my free time? I haven't even had the chance to write a single word in over a week, and it's killing me. Maybe tomorrow. Fingers crossed.
