A few days ago, I was talking with a friend whose daughter is also in Fiddler on the Roof. She mentioned something about attending rehearsals.
"You can do that?" I asked, surprised.
Then, I asked my daughter how she would feel about me coming to watch her rehearsal.
She was totally fine with it.
So, tonight, I watched their rehearsal. It was so much fun! The play is going to be so great!!
Rehearsals are grueling! I got tired, just watching!!
They did not even rehearse the full show!
I might go again, to see the stuff I missed. We'll see.
Meanwhile, one of the girls in the show, who is in the same school & class as my daughter, has basically moved into our home. She lives in the Gush and would get home really late after rehearsals. So she is sleeping here pretty much until the show is over. It's nice that I can open my home that way and the girls basically take care of themselves.
Today, when I finally got out of bed, I got busy! I went on several errands with my friend, LF, who had a few hours free while her daughter was at a local birthday party. My friend drove, and we accomplished a lot! It was fun and productive!!
When I came home, I still felt energetic, so I fried up some sweet potato latkes for my kids. My younger two did not really like them (apparently neither of them like sweet potatoes), but my eldest daughter loved them (and appreciated that I made them for her).
Overall, it was a good day!
Please daven (or send happy, healing thoughts) for RivkA bat Teirtzel.
With love and optimism,
