BY PAMELA JO BOWMAN, MESA ARIZONA – I was unsettled at work today. I edited a section and I believe it improved. Then I brought it into place in the section and realized I had forgotten the overall plan. After juggling it together, I finally released it to the finisher. She promises me she will fine tune the first four sections before Saturday. I told “the finisher” that I didn’t believe her. She laughed and told me that I was justified in not believing her. After all, she told me they would be proofed as a Christmas gift for me. Now, I know that I should have asked which Christmas! Most recently, she says for my birthday. This time I have asked for clarification! This birthday?
After editing, I went and assisted with set painting for the upcoming play (THE MUSIC MAN). Fun, fun, fun! The artist told me it would be as easy as painting by numbers. I did not see any numbers on the flat. Then, she told me to shade. ARTISTS! They think everyone knows where “shading” should be. I did try to stay in the lines. That is really hard for me! I’m an out-of-the-lines kind of gal!
Then a meeting with Ciera Jo. Finally I got to come home and so I could get ready for California. I get to spend 36 hours with my sisters. We are attending a funeral for our great Aunt Rosie. The reason for our gathering is sad but I am looking forward to it. I haven’t seen my cousins in 20 years! This should be interesting. I am taking my camera … just in case!
Unsettled still, but I am going home.
