We will plan on getting ice cream that day…depending on the flood.

I am finding it hard to settle on a blog subject today.  I know, I know…same as every other day.  But seriously…everything that I have going on in my life someone ends with the sentence “depending on the flood”.  Our church musical is opening next weekend.  We are entering tech week and have the opportunity to be featured on the morning news on Tuesday morning…depending on the flood.  I could go on, but I am sure you get the idea.  It is ALL about the flood.  And…it should be.  At least until we have done all we can to get people protected and the crest has come and gone.  Yesterday and today Z has been out of school sandbagging with friends.  The river is currently 4 ½ feet from the record flood of 2009. 

If you don’t know the impact of that flood…

 

So imagine only four feet from that.  Lots of roads are closed.  It takes a good 30 minutes to get to work.  In KC that was making GOOD time to get 11 miles, but in Fargo, 6 miles takes me no more than 10.

And still with all of this doom and gloom surrounding me…I am getting SO excited for the musical.  Looking forward to this week.  Time to tighten everything up and get to know some people better.  The cast is ridiculously talented and there is some music I am hoping they will let me use for other things.  Its really great. Beautiful melodies.  The set is AMAZING and last night we rehearsed with part of the orchestra.  A tad rocky, but isn’t that to be expected?  Especially without any percussion. 

CANT WAIT! CANT WAIT! CANT WAIT!

I am so busy with this that I haven’t even talked about food!  How weird is THAT? I promise…next week. Tonight Mike and I are seeing Cirque du Soleil’s Dralion.  He received tickets at work and we are going with his AGM and his wife.  Really looking forward to it.  A night out with other adults. And no kids. To a performing arts event nonetheless…and FREE!  It doesn’t get much better than that. So, with that being said…I’ll talk to y’all next week…depending on the flood.

  1. I am JEALOUS of you seeing Cirque! Tell me all about it!!!! XOXO

  2. It was good. Not my favorite of theirs by FAR…but it was good. My favorite is Mystere. BEST EVER! This one didn’t have a story really. Can’t compare an arena show to one in their own venue in Vegas 🙂 – K
