I am tired and worried, yet happy.
I spent today, pay day, paying bills and making copies of something I had planned to mail today, but got to the Post Office 2 minutes too late and will have to send off in the morning instead.
Should I do what I am going to do in the morning? With this week and next week and the week after being 39, 37 and 36 hr work weeks and a couple of bills and the rent due just after the next paycheck in 2 wks....normally the answer would be no....
not when I am still sleeping on the floor and will be for the foreseeable future, need a new, strong, umbrella, desperately need new shoes, and will have to somehow get litter for the cats in a couple of weeks (forget getting their nails done, shots and an upcoming Hoohawectomy for the kitten)...
but an opportunity has come up, at almost the last minute, that I just could not pass up if I aim to be serious about my creativity this year and get that focus off to a positive start...
Where to begin?
How about next Thursday?
On my cat blog, The Opinionated Pussycat, the girls have shared posts about the Amazing Acro-Cats,
a crew of very special felines who are skilled in performing a lot of very cool things:
The Amazing Acro-Cats not only perform, but also educate the public. Samantha Martin teaches the importance of, "Clicker Training" and how it can improve your cat's life, and also be useful in the event of an emergency situation.
They will be playing in Houston, January 21 - 31, at the Frenetic Theatre...that is, they will be as long as their transportation still holds up!
They are in Austin for performances and have been raising money, through a kickstarter campaign, for a new tour bus!
See Miss Elvira's report, here.
Anyway, the opportunity to see a live performance was something I didn't see as possible...until I learned that they were looking for volunteers, among the locals, to help with loading in and loading out, cat wrangling and care, merchandise making, and merchandise and ticket sales, even lighting and sound, for all their performances.
My work schedule for the next 2 weeks allows me to volunteer on the 21st and the 28th (maybe one more day depending on the next work schedule).
How much of the show will I get to see? I don't know; just the chance to get out and about and involved in my community (the Houston community AND the feline creative community) is important to me.
