And So It Begins

Another school year is upon me. I am delaying going into the kitchen to pack lunches and bookbags for the morning. Sigh. I guess I should just bite the bullet and get to it. We've spent the weekend (who'm I kidding? *JF* spent the weekend) cleaning and doing the laundry in preparation for the busy work-and-school week ahead. Offspring is currently ensconsed in the tub, getting ready for the first day of 5th grade.


I also had my audition today. I think it went fairly well, since I went into the reading cold, never having seen the show or the script before. I don't really like cold reading, but I think I did fairly well. The director laughed at my readings in several spots, and had me read for every female character in the script. The only ominous note is that as I was leaving, he said, "If for some reason you don't get cast, I'll certainly keep you in mind for other things." Hm. That doesn't bode well. Oh, well. I'll hope for the best. The performances are scheduled for one of the same weekends as a Girl Scout training, so if I don't make it, I can still go to the training.

I suppose I should go pack those lunches and bookbags now.

Congratulations! I think that's a good sign, personally, or it sounds good to me anyway.

Everyone keep your fingers crossed that I'll get cast! There are two roles that I'd really like to have, so I'd be happy with either of those.

The director said that he would probably let all of us know by Wednesday, so either I'll have good news, or whine material. :)
