I have not been writing about our political situation in our state and I wish, I didn’t have to follow politics but being a state and federal employee it is unavoidable.  Here is the article from MPR with more details about the situation:

Tomorrow is the show and not once but twice I need to act on the stage.  No, I need to be on the stage more than one time in each act but there are two shows at 1pm and 4pm.  Kids actors will be totally crazy there after the 1st run.

 On Friday, we had one and only dress rehearsal; having 30 people in the play and most of the actors are kids, it went pretty good.  However, there was one scene where I messed up twice. 

First, I forgot my last comment and that messed up the kids who were waiting for my cue.  After that I totally forgot what I need to say next.  Luckily, my conversation partner is real actor and he reminded me what I need to be talking about.

I decided that I would have my script and review my lines before I get on the stage.  There are two scenes that I spend too much time on the stage and one scene runs into the other.

Every time I think about tomorrow’s shows I get butterflies in my stomach.   I hope I will get over it by the show. 

I would need to take kids to my in-laws tomorrow morning, eat good lunch and go to the theater.  Boris will take Mishka to the show at 4pm.

My biggest fear is that I will humiliation the whole Harmony theatre with my performance. 

I hope NOT!!!   
This show is somewhat a microcosm of the rehearsals for this show at Harmony.  I hope it will go well.

I can’t wait until it will be over though!!!!!!!!!

This was one uncomfortable week.  Started with me and Mishka getting sick on Sunday, then Michelle got ear infection and pink eye on Tuesday and then Boris got sick too and still is sick.  Boris’ grandpa who is 95 was at the hospital not feeling well too this week.   On Wednesday, Boris’ car got stock in the snow and he damaged something under the car.  So on Friday we took it over to the shop and luckily, it got fixed on Friday evening before the storm.  In addition to that my friend is going through some tough times right now.

In addition to all that we had a snow storm today with about 20 inches of snow covering everything around us.  I stayed home all day wearing my pajamas and did not plan to leave house until Sunday morning.  Then I got a phone call from Mishka’s teacher from religious school that there will be no school on Sunday at the synagogue so I didn’t even have to get out of the house until Sunday evening.

This week has been very busy and I am feeling so unfocused.  I am not sure what is it that I need to do first.  This week brought some good ideas and I made some action upon some ideas.  How long would it take me to take action upon other ideas?  and do I really need to take action at all?  I feel already overwhelmed and exhausted.  I miss my baby, I get to see her for about 30 minutes in the morning while I get dressed and dress her up for the daycare.

Anyway, Happy Hanukah!!!

Last night we learned that when there is spiritual threat, use physical force to fight it (do stuff) if there is material threat use spirituality to fight the threat (pray, etc.).

I am not sure where I am and if there is any threat, but I know for sure that I am doing too much stuff and need to slow down and get some rest.
I will be teaching ballet class tonight, I hope that will energize me a little :) and I will get home before 8pm and get to play with kids in the messy house without much food (leftovers are gone and I have not been home enough to cook anything).

Tomorrow is my Friday off of work, only I was asked to come to work for a few hours, so no time to rest tomorrow too. 
That sucks!!!

I am getting overwhelmed by everything that is happening mostly at work.  Usually, September and October are our slow months when we can catch up on paperwork, track our last year’s clients and get some break from super busy summer.  This year, September and October were as busy for me as during the summer months.  Even if clients don’t show, I get a lot of phone calls or need to work on paperwork.  I already have a half of file cabinet of new files for this year that I am ignoring.  Tracking for last year is priority for the annual report that is due at the end of November.

I have been trying to use my time wisely and track clients if there are no shows.  I met with over 700 clients last year (our year goes from September 1st through August 31st of next year). 

On top of that I am going to present at the regional TRiO MAEOPP conference in Indiana in November and a week after that conference will be presenting at the MAFAA conference here in Minneapolis.  Next week is a workshop in the evening after work and Michael’s field trip that I volunteered to chaperon.  Right around that time there is an open house at our college that I am going to staff the table.  Tracking must be done before Thanksgiving.  I don’t work on Fridays anymore and already feel the stress.  So far I got through all files from A to H.  H pile is huge!  I did half of it today.  It felt like it was endless.

This reminds me of the Spring time when I presented in Wisconsin and the next day at the U of MN MCDA conference plus all other stuff that was going on.  At that time the prize was my vacation to Rio.  This time, I actually look forward to getting few nights of sleep in Indiana without Michelle waking me up.

I have two weeks to prepare for my presentation.  It is a version of my presentation in La Crosse and MCDA using existential concepts to help students succeed in college and in life.  The title of the presentation is To be a tree or not to be?!  I got a cute cartoon with this question.  I need to create power point slides by next week.

I have been wondering, why am I so irritated at home? Well, I guess I bring my stress home from work plus stress of having Boris somewhat disabled.  All physical work at home is on me now.  I feel his pain and can't do much to make it heal faster. 

Kids make me smile, yet drive me crazy when misbehaving or being very loud.  Michelle is pushing her boundaries.  It is difficult to punish her because she is so so so cute!
oh, well, I will survive, as usually.
