I usually don’t mind going back after Thanksgiving. It’s only a few weeks until Christmas, and I do fun things with the kids.
Not this year. This year, I have 2 Christmas programs, one this week with half the school, next week with the other half. To that end, I am practicing, all day every day, on the stage in the cafeteria. Class after class. On Wednesday, I’m going to run through the whole show. Thursday night is the first show, then Friday I’ll start practicing with the other groups.
So I won’t be in my room At All this week. I’ll be directing over kids eating breakfast, over kids eating lunch.
And then there’s the performance. All on me. Except the decorations. And Cindi is working with the narrators. Or she will be. She BETTER be.
Good thing the beer fridge is stocked.
So, this week:
1) Breakfast duty
2) Make a playlist of the songs for practice.
3) Survive program #1
4) Write (need to keep sane somehow!)
I know I shouldn’t stress so much, but I’m gonna, anyway.
