Apple had theater night tonight. I had been working on her costume (a black sheep) for at least a week now, but still was working up to the last minute to get it done. I ended up stapling stuff together for Monday's dress rehearsal, but a lot of the staples came out, so Apple was unhappy about her costume falling apart. I fixed it last night by sewing it together. I also had to fix some of the loops of yarn that came undone. I had to make her sheep ears. Then this morning I put her hair up in lots of loops. It miraculously stayed put all day. I left work early to make a quiche and pick up Apple from school. I got her dressed and painted her nose black. I don't know how much she resembled a sheep, but she was really cute. ETA to include photo:
The plays went well and Apple surprised us with how well she spoke and how she lead the others. In the end, it's really nice that they do theater night.
Tomorrow is danse rehearsal for both girls. Then Kitten has her swimming end-of-year ceremony. She has to dress up as a mermaid and I have to bring a cake. Who knows how long the thing is going to last. Hubby has to go to a all-parent meeting at the daycare in the evening.
Oh, and we have to clean up the house (which has gone to hell this week) to show it tomorrow. Oh, and I'm working tonight to make up for the early day I had today.
Thursday we get a break, then Friday and Saturday nights is dance recital. I've volunteered to help backstage on Saturday.
Oh, and Nitro is being Nitro, so I'm not sleeping well at night.
Oh, and Saturday I busted open my knee after falling on it with Nitro wrapped on me, so I had to get 3 stitches and I've been hobbling around to keep it straight. I waited a bit too long for the stitches (6+ hours) and the doctor didn't do a great job, so I'm going to have a pretty ugly scar. But that doesn't matter as long as my skin is ravaged by the red, itchy, oozing wounds everywhere.
I can rest after this weekend, no? Good news is that Kitten got into the English bilingual class!!!
