  1. I understand why you’re so tired!
    I also understand that, as the school year comes to a close, it’s important to take all those last jobs, “make hay while the sun shines,” I guess.
    what will your summer schedule be like?
    doing any other shows?
    I’ve had to cut back to just one, it’s just so expensive!
    take care,
    Patty

  2. Exactly! I feel how on earth can I trade away work or turn away work when I am faced with the uncertainity of June, July and August. I am not sure what my summer schedule will look like ,yet.
