*iz ded* or *mah feet hurt*

After a crapulous (personal) rehearsal last night, tonight's was much better. I DO not know how I'm going to do my 2 quick changes, though - I didn't even have time to change my SHOES tonight, let alone go from a dress to a negligee to a ball gown. Oi. It'll be tricky. Because unless I get naked for all of backstage to see, it's gonna be a tough one. And although I play a whore on stage, I am pretty modest in real life. If, indeed, you can call backstage real life.

In other news, we got a new mattress and box springs today. It's taller than our old one, so I feel like I'm perched up on a platform. I LOVED our old one - I mean LOVED it - so this one better not suck. Nolan got it for his back issues. He's currently snoring beside me, so so far, so good on that front.

When the mattress man (That's his name, by the by. He's got this mattress thing on the side; he actually owns a data forms business. I don't care if our mattress is black market or fell off a truck, as long as it's comfy, though.) took our old mattress, after I vacuumed up a spectacular amount of dust, I found my charm bracelet that I got for Christmas that's been missing since May. I thought I'd lost it in a hotel room, so that brought me a lot of joy. Woot! And I'd never told Nolan that it was missing. Dodged a bullet, there.

I should probably tell him that I ran into the garage wall last week, though, huh? And messed up the sheet rock and my car door. *nods* I'm just waiting for the right moment. Married girls, you know what I mean. *wink*

And, last but not least: I have minion(s) of my very own! My nine year old mowed the backyard all by himself today. I had to start the mower for him, but that's it. I cannot tell you how much that helps out. He was all proud (though trying to negotiate a salary) and I didn't have to haul my rear out there and do it. JOY all around.

That's it. I'm going into a coma-like sleep, now. See you on the flip side.
