it's official! over the weekend ryan's parents moved out of their old house and into their new house near us. (remember when we rented a u-haul and helped them move some of their stuff into storage here and here?)
ryan snapped these two pictures on his phone when the moving trucks first pulled up in the morning to load everything up and then at the end of the day when they were packed and ready to leave the old house.
over the last few days, ryan's parents have been unpacking in their new house. we're happy to have them so close by now!
i snapped this picture on friday in the theatre when ryan and i were setting lights for the shows we had this weekend. ryan was in the space between the cyc and the scrim and the lights made him look like he was in an bright orange tunnel. it was a cool effect in person that didn't entirely translate to a photo, but i snapped one on my phone anyway to remember it.
happy monday! we're beyond delirious this morning!
the past week has wiped us out with 14 shows at 4 different venues in a 1 week time span! last night we crossed one more show off our spring show season list with the final music concert of the season. of course we have more shows this weekend!
we found a quick spare moment in between everything this weekend to celebrate mother's day with my mom. although it was brief, it was nice to take a minute to have dinner and dessert with my mama on mother's day before running back off to work!
we had to take a raincheck on celebrating mother's day with ryan's mom, but we hope to celebrate with her soon!
this weekend, ryan worked several shows of beautiful at one theatre while i worked a graduation and a dance recital at a different theatre. we both set up another graduation at the outdoor arena, and then we both loaded out beautiful back at the theatre. it sure was a jam-packed weekend!
in other news, a humongous highlight of the weekend for me was trying my hand at up rigging for the very first time and succeeding! i'm incredibly proud of myself because this has been a personal goal of mine for about two years. all of the sore muscles are worth it because i can't believe i finally got a chance to do it!
since i'm not actually in the room with you right now and you can't hear me, just imagine me taking a very long sigh right now . . .
. . . wheph, this week has been a long and rough one, and although it's friday, it's far from over. i feel like the stupidity of so many things around me this week has beaten me down. looking back, there was really only one highlight of my week and that was seeing beautiful on wednesday night.
this weekend is power packed and is going to show no mercy with multiple shows happening back-to-back. tis show season, and that's to be expected, but i certainly could have done without all of the other idiocy from the week. check back in on monday to see if we make it through the weekend with our sanity intact.
