Firstly, Breanna (the lovely Mrs. Sykes) and I have been taking an adult ballet class for the past few weeks. You can read my views on it on my last SpouseBUZZ article here.
Home life has been the same. Applying for jobs and spending time with Rylie and Ryan.
|Rylie loves to go under our bed, Ryan decided to join her and they spent an hour playing. Cute.|
|Sometimes Rylie just wants to be close. Ryan was napping on the couch and Rylie kept kissing him and bugging him, so this was my husband's solution.|
|We love playing Draw Something! This was my husband's latest creation and it was so cute I had to save it!|
Now our Rylie is very very destructive! She is a powerful chewer, so all of her toys recently have been completely torn apart. She literally had one nylabone left! So today we ran to PetSmart and got our pup some Powerful Chew toys. For over an hour she chased this Kong around the garage trying to get the treat out and now is chewing her bacon flavored HARD plastic S. Pup is still chasing the stuff around the living room.
Now last week a friend of mine posted on my Facebook that the Community College was holding auditions for Agatha Christie's The Mousetrap. I got excited and decided to give it a go and audition. I was pretty nervous, it has been a long time since I really auditioned for anything! I left really early and got to the theatre almost an hour early and naturally it was pouring rain. I forgot my umbrella so I went in looking a little bit like I swam there.
Ever enter a room and realize everyone in the room know each other already? I had one of those moments but luckily theatre people are pretty welcoming. Being a newcomer I wasn't sure how good my odds were but apparently it didn't matter..... I got cast!
This email arrived at 12:15am this morning, just as we were going to bed. I think I scared the crap out of Ryan when I screamed! I forgot how amazing it feels to see your name on a cast list! And Mollie has a lot of lines... I am going to be busy for the next seven weeks! Rehearsals start Monday and I am really looking forward to it. I will be out of the house and doing something I love. Perfect.
Of course the show is in October (psst Jacksonville ladies, please come!) and Ryan is due to be in California for training the entire month. Sigh. It always tends to work that way doesn't it? Out of the six or seven shows I have worked on or been in since Ryan and I have started dating I think he has made maybe three of them. Not too bad but I wish he could come to this!
So hopefully I will have more stories and things to share soon now that I will be getting out of the house more. And thanks to everyone on Facebook and Instagram who already said congratulations and other such things, it means a lot to me!
