My Super-Duper Big Exciting News

Last year I auditioned for a show called Listen To Your Mother. Listen To Your Mother is a series of live staged readings about motherhood. As my friend put it, think Vagina monologues except about the mom experience in all its various forms and each piece it written by the person reading it. Anyway, last year I didn’t make it, so when I got an audition this year I kept my expectations in check and tried not to get too excited.

I drove down to Oklahoma City and read my piece in front of the three producers while trying to control my shaky hands and voice. I prepared myself to not make it. I told myself it was an honor just to be nominated. Then since I made this trip sans kids I left and went to the outlet mall.

I shopped, I spent too much money, I ate lunch, I ran into a friend and then I got ready to drive back.  I called my mother-in-law to tell her I was headed back. The kids wanted to stay another night and since my mother-in-law is the best she let them stay. Really…she’s the best. She took my kids and my two nieces to Chucky Cheese…on a Saturday.

I went home and went wild. And by wild I mean I ate an obscene amount of chocolate cake, stayed up late and watched movies.  It was wonderful. Just this would have been a great day, but then I got a call.  I made it into the Oklahoma City cast of Listen To Your Mother! All week long I’ve been saying the words “I’m sooo excited” like a valley girl, but I can’t help it…I am sooo excited!

So if you are in Oklahoma City, please come out and see me and this cast of wonderfully witty women on May 4th! Tickets go on sale soon!
