5 hours of babysitting
1.5 tanks of gas
7 missed hours of sleep
5 missed evenings of bedtime stories
$10 in bridge tolls
7 1/2 hours of travel
20 hours in a dark theatre

-The price I paid for the last 7 days worth of performances and rehearsals (and I missed some in there, because I was home sick)

Golly, is it any wonder I'm feeling burnt out?

This post has been a Monday Mission. This week's mission, if you choose to accept it, is to write a post in the style of a Bill. If you participate please drop a link in the widget below.

Your Missions for the Nostalgic Month of December are to write posts in the style of:
12/1 - a children's story - one of Joy's favorites
12/8 - a poem - a favorite of Mary G from back when I was just reading the Missions and not hosting them!
12/15 - a song (rewrite the lyrics to a familiar tune) - one of my favorites
12/22 - a Letter to Santa (this is not a nostalgic mission, but Joy suggested it and I couldn't resist.)
12/29 - no Mission - because no one else told me a favorite past mission AND I will be out of town. So there.

I'd be burnt out, too.

Sounds like a long week!

I hope you're feeling better. My family stuff has kept me away from reading for a bit... I hope to be catching up.

It sounds like an expensive week, in more ways than one. But it makes for a clever post, so that's a wee bit of a rebate, right?

I'll working on sending you my bill today. Please disregard if you have already paid.

oh my dear, burnt out for sure. Take Care

And that was just performance, not practice. Being gone all the time in the evening is tiring. That's what my "job," is, and I have to limit it or I start to crumble.

Cleverly written!

Kat said...

Yipes. That would cause burnout.

Doggone it! Why do I always forget about the Monday Missions? These are all great ones. I need to put it on my calender or something.

Whoof! Nice take on the MM too. I may still get one up, after I get the underwear washed. Sigh.

Mary Beth said...

Would it still be considered a passion if it didn't cost an arm and a leg?

Beck said...

I'm tired just reading that.
Sounds like fun, though.

So it looks like I'm not going to manage the MM this week. I seem to be coming down with the cold, and my creativity has left the building. I think I'll go to bed.
