As it turns out, there is more to the "this is an incredible summer" than I originally thought. Okay: basic run down of the summer:
Drama Club - a variety show in the spirit of Mickey Rooney/Judy Garland but written by my brother and performed for Lights Up! when The Wizard of Oz fell through - spectacularly fell through, btw. It was great fun, but seemed to really change the game for Lights Up!, the theater troupe founded and run by my mother.
Brainstorm - while discussing the possibilities after the Drama Club, the name of a particular classic play came up.
Wedding: AJ got married. To see more, read down a few blogs.
Showtime - Jeff got a break. To see more, read a blog down.
The Crucible - the play we tossed out while brainstorming. I then tossed it out to Muad'Dib...before I knew it, we had decided to accept a directing gig for Lights Up!. We held auditions the Monday after my sister got married. We had 9 people audition. But I had a feeling that it was going to happen. And that it was going to be good. So we had callbacks. We had 13 people at callbacks. I told those present that we didn't have enough people and that if they were serious, they would spread the word. Little less than a week later, we had a full and talented cast for The Crucible. We began rehearsal.
Now, the next thing...we didn't find out until the fall...but seeing as I'm ten weeks on, it's safe to say that it happened this summer.
I am pregnant.
The big thing I kept saying about this summer - all the way back in April I was saying this - was that this summer was going to be a game changer. For every member of my family, the game has changed; and the catylist was something that happened late spring or during the summer.
Now, on the subject of pregnancy: WOO HOO!!!!!
Well...there are my disjointed thoughts on this summer. The ripples of it are still traveling to the shore, and have not yet reached their full wave magnitude. I'm just riding it out.
However, I should say that I'm a little ski-wompus. You know, reactionary in unconventional and unpredictable ways. Such as when I was in RS today and quite basically started...for lack of a better word - fighting with a friend and fellow Sister in the gospel. Yeah, I did. So: I quickly see the error of my reactions, and still - if we interact, please cut me some slack. Grumpy. Grumpy is a good word to describe it. Not sad, not angry...just grumpy. Happy! but also grumpy.
