For the few who may not know, yesterday was my 30th birthday... and it was a good day. I spent most of the day at school, between class, office hours, costume shop hours and then rehearsal. But my cast has once again proven that it is the best cast ever... I did not receive just one cake, but two and they tried really hard to keep it a surprise. At the end of the second act, one of the characters brings on a birthday cake for his son's birthday party. Instead, they brought on a real cake with candles and sang happy birthday to me (instead of to his son). It was very sweet and a good reminder that I love where I am (though I am certainly going to miss a lot of these students when they graduate in three weeks)!
Today is my only day off this week (since we have Q2Q and then first tech tomorrow). And Reid has been very sweet in letting me do whatever I want. So, I got my hair cut, my eyebrows waxed and bought 12 bags of top soil for our garden (I know... I live large!). I also transplanted some more of our seedlings into big plant containers (since we woke up to four or so inches of snow yesterday it'll still be a couple of weeks until these guys move outside... and if you're wondering the snow is all gone now). I'm going to spend a little while putzing around on the computer and then Reid and I are going out to dinner... all in all a perfect day off!
