Home on a Thursday
It's 12:52 pm on a Wednesday in May. I'm home because it's 102 degrees...at least for my son it is. He woke up with a happy disposition, but a high fever. So, I have some time between working on my religion requirement and Blue's Clues and the laundry and sibling refereeing to write a bit.
It's weird to be home on a weekday. I'm actually glad that it worked out this way. Again, because I don't have enough to do as it is, I'm standing in for the principle hair & make-up artist at the Rubicon Theater in Ventura. I stood in for him last year during the Rubicon's production of The Diary of Anne Frank. This time around it's for a premier production of My Antonia. I'll be completely MIA here at home for the next 4 days. Despite the circumstances (sick baby) I get to spend some quiet time with my children. At least this way I know they won't forget who I am over the next few days.
Everything is fine otherwise. I'd like to announce that there's a Marble Slab Creamery going in directly across the street. I'm melancholy happy about it...happy because it's my favorite ice creamery next to Haagen-Daz, and melancholy because I don't eat milk anymore. Too bad they don't have a sorbet-ery. I'd be all over it. I'm happy, too, that they're also building a Yolanda's AND a 24-Hour Fitness...I'm stoaked, just without ice cream. I suppose if there ever came a time when I absolutely needed a stomach ache or I'd die, I could run across the street. That's always an option.
Hope you're all well. More later.
