I went to my singing workshop and my coach told me that over the last couple of days people have been dropping out right and left, the last one having called 10 minutes before the workshop was to have started. Of the ten people originally scheduled to be in it, I was the ONLY one who did not cancel. Flaky Californians! Do wish I'd known that it wouldn't happen before I drove all the way down there! So I'm going to use my deposit and some of the remaining funds for the class for private singing lessons for the next few weeks, which will be good for me. She and I did sit and have a little tea before I headed home and we caught up a bit - it had been 5-6 months since we'd seen each other.
Drove home and let Mike know that I would be there earlier than anticipated for the Oscars, but first I had to go to the grocery store so I could make something for dinner. I had ground lamb in the fridge, and had been thinking about some kind of stew combination, so I bought a couple of white onions, 2 sweet potatoes, and a bag of frozen okra. Put the meat, onions, and potatoes in a pot and let it rip for a while with some salt and curry. Added the okra at the end so it didn't overcook. It totally hit the spot, and was filled with beneficials, which I desperately need right now. I've got a scratchy throat and feel like I'm fighting something. Ugh.
I went over to Mike's for part of the Oscars, but I had to leave before the end so I could get at least a couple hours of sleep in before coming to work. I am just wiped out right now, and won't get to rest until later during the day Monday. I've got an acting-related meeting noon so I'll be sleeping after my meeting. Tuesday I have NO plans, and I intend to sleep all day if I can - and Wednesday I am babysitting again and have a date to see "La Bohème" that evening (very excited about that!), so I won't get to sleep much Wednesday. Thursday is another quiet day, and then the weekend. I've GOT to get some acting jobs that will get me OUT of this job. They're coming - VERY soon!
