I got my first (and probably last until next year when all of the older kids leave for college) paycheck in the mail today! I babysat at my church a week ago since all of the real babysitters had stuff to do and so that's why I got a paycheck today. I guess that's all. I just wanted to post that I got my first paycheck.

Well since it's spring break and I have no shows at TROUPE I can finally get my hair cut. So yesterday I got a trim and some bangs, and here's a picture. It's from this afternoon at lunch. My brother and a ton of kids from his gymnastics place went to a restaurant called "Chicken Oil". The food wasn't that good and it wasn't fun since I don't even know any of the kids from his gymnastics place, but oh well.

Sunday was my last performance of "Manhattan Melodies" at TROUPE. I got to sing three solos "Somewhere That's Green", "Forget About the Boy" and "Beauty and the Beast". It was incredibly fun and I didn't feel as freaked out about having to dance as I normally do. I really wanted to get to sing "Forget About the Boy" and we didn't audition for solos in this show. So, I feel really lucky that I got to sing it. I got sick the second day of the show, but luckily I didn't sound too bad until the last show. At least I was better off than another girl who got sick. She got so sick that she couldn't even sing her songs. After the last show we recorded a song called "Thank You for the Music" for a DVD that TROUPE is going to give to potential sponsors. The reason why they made this special DVD and stuff is because this summer we're doing "You're A Good Man Charlie Brown" and someone from the original Broadway cast is going to be directing us. So, they need more money than usual. I was one of the four girls who got to sing a little solo on that song (Thank You for the Music) which was cool. After all that I went to a lock-in at TROUPE which was fun. So I was really busy last weekend. The picture is from "Forget About the Boy" and yes I know I look insane.

I went on another trip with TROUPE to go see some shows, but this time we stayed overnight. First we went to go see the play "The Man Who Came to Dinner" which was really funny. We went to our hotel after that. I was really lucky that I got to room with all of my friends. We ate pizza at our hotel around 1:30 a.m. or 2:00 a.m. We ended up going to sleep around 3:00 a.m. We got up at 7:00 a.m. I curled my friend Anne's hair and I curled my hair too. We ate breakfast at the hotel. We packed up all of our stuff and then went to an improv workshop. The workshop was really fun, but I stink at improv. So I felt pretty embarrassed. We ate lunch (Jason's Deli) at the place where we had the workshop. After that we went to go see "Chitty Chitty Bang Bang" which was really amazing. Afterwards there was a question and answer session with some of cast members. We almost forgot about it, but luckily some of the kids remembered. We went to go eat Bar-B-Que and then we went to go see an improv show at the same place where we had the workshop. It was a competitive improv show meaning that there were two teams and they competed for points and stuff. Twice the audience members got to vote on which team did better and to do that you bought fly swatters. So when it was time to vote you raised up one of your fly swatters that matched the color of the team who you thought did better. I had a lot of fun on this trip and I was really happy 'cause my best friends went.

My sunday school class had our bake sale at church today and we raised one hundred and twenty two dollars!!!! That's two dollars more than the elementary school sunday school class raised with their birdhouses! YAY! So like I said in my last post we are going to use the money to buy stuff animals for kids in the hospital, but since we raised soooooooooooooooooo much money I think we're going to use some of it for future projects as well. Like I think our next project is going to be sewing pillows for the animal shelter. And someone's mom has some fabric she's going to give us, but we'll need to buy stuffing for the pillows. So we'll probably end up using some of the money to buy that. Anway......WOW 122.00 DOLLARS!!!!

So for sunday school this year all the different classes are doing service projects. My class (the Middle School class) is trying to do several service projects instead of just one (I think...). So far the Elementary School class has built birdhouses, sold them at church, and donated the money to the Animal Shelter. Well my class' first project was to knit scarfs and go to the hospital and donate them to the kids who are in the hospital. (MY IDEA!!! =DD) It's really important to me because I was in the hospital and looking back at the stuff my friends gave me when I was in the hospital just makes me happy. (not happy that I was in the hospital, but happy that people are nice enough to come and visit you and give you stuff) So we also decided to have a bake sale at church tomorrow to earn money to buy stuffed animals to give along with the scarfs. So I baked some chocolate chip cookies tonight and I finished my scarf last week, but I'm posting the picture now with the picture of my cookies. (and yes as evidence by the picture with my scarf, I am a dork)
