Less than a week to go!

We started rehearsal this week and so far it's been great! We're having a blast and enjoying just being actors, not actors who also work on the side doing a million other things. Our director is great and the cast is super talented and a lot of fun. Most of us our new to Second City and the ship, so we're all go-ho for anything!

Can't wait for the adventure to continue!

Where did the time go?

Holy crap, it's been a month since we updated this thing! Sorry about that. To be fair, it's been a pretty ridiculous month. As I write this, laundry is in the wash from our trip to Mexico for Josh and Kim's wedding, and once it's out we start packing again for this upcoming Alaskan adventure.

There have been several trips to the storage unit, but most of our stuff is safely stored away. We'll put the last of it in there in a few days, but this week is it. Today and tomorrow are it for the relax and recuperate days, because Monday begins rehearsal week at Second City, concluding on Friday. Then Saturday morning, early morning, we board a flight to Seattle, step on to our new floating home and sail away for four months.

This past week was spent at the amazing El Dorado Royale resort in Mexico. It's located just outside Cancun, and I can't even tell you how incredible it was there. It's an all-inclusive resort, so that means every meal, every drink, every snack, room service, mini bar, bottled water, etc was already paid for. We took a day trip with the group to Chichen Itza and saw some Mayan ruins and had our minds blown. The Mayans were so much smarter than us, it's almost incomprehensible. Also part of that trip included a dip in a cenote, this natural sinkhole with fresh water where people go and swim. It was beautiful and refreshing, and looked like this.

The rest of the trip was relaxing and wonderful. Best of all was the wedding, right on the beach, just before sundown, with a light breeze couldn't have been nicer. We took a ton of pictures which we'll post just as soon as possible, but there are more pressing things to attend to first. In fact, the washing machine just buzzed. Time to switch the laundry.
