So looking back over my blog I see I really haven't put much up here other than knitting and the furry middle child. So I sat down last night and typed up a nice long post about this last week... Blogger ate it, the bastards! So here I sit to give it another go. So I work for a theatrical supply company. I handle all rentals of scenery and rental equipment. Let me start by saying that I am very lucky... I have the job I wanted when I was studying theatre in college... And I love it, most of the time. Here is a sample of things I had to do last week:
Fix up some fake palm trees. this involves hot glue,moss, paint and a lot of foul language.
Repaint the busts of the weird sisters, I will have to get a pic of these
Order, pick up, put together and learn how to use a brand new follow spot.
Give a tour of the building to big time clients and explain that yes that really is the Trojan horse they see being built, and a big red barn and a fire truck...
Deliver one cow to a high school
buy and install a new steering wheel in Grease Lighting.
This is the fun stuff... well I also handle sales and some marketing but...Pretty cool eh?
However let me say that working in a place that has 7 women and 30 dudes is quite interesting. The men folk seem to all have a defective chromosome. This is a theory my Mom and I have had for a while... Girls you know what I mean...
Don't get me wrong they are a great bunch of guys who help me out a lot, but boy there are days...
On the home front. Hubby the monster kids and I will be going to Chicago in two weeks! Yeah! We are going to see my folks and take the kids downtown. Winston will go to the doggy spa (vet) for his checkup and bath and grooming. The people there are so nice and great with him. The first time we boarded him there MG was very upset to leave her dog so I called ahead and told them... they greeted MG at the door and made a big fuss over Winston... they even let MG go back to the kennel. very good service...gotta love that
MB has just removed all of his clothes and is running in circles... Ah to be 3 now if he would just use the potty...sigh
Well I hope this gives you an idea of what my life is like, we are off now to the store to buy yarn to dye for my secret pal and something for the kids to make a mess with...of course this means I have to clean the kitchen first...
