So I have been MIA at least for a couple of weeks. Our local high school was putting on a rather large musical (cast of almost 100 including Oompa Loompas) when they had a problem within the cast. At the last minute, a few days before their first show I was called in to play the role of Violet Beauregarde's mother (the gum chewer). I have done some acting before, but no singing or dancing in a long time. Tomorrow is our last performance, we've been sold out each night. I will miss the students but will be glad to get back to sewing!
