Tonight was the first sanctuary rehearsal for the kids production that is on this Sunday evening. I was on the stairs running sound and running back and forth to make sure that the motions were being done and that the kids were staying in line (115 kids on three risers can cause a bit of a fuss!)
So what do I do when turning around to restart the music? Slide on the microphone/speaker/iPod cord and go down the last three stairs on my shins and plant my chin on the floor. I stood up and said thank you very much, took a bow and kept going . . .
. . . but holy cow my right leg hurts.
Two hours later I am finally at home, and let me tell you my right shin looks like I have elephantiasis. It’s swollen so much I have a cankle (no!) and I can barely walk with that knee. PAIN!
On the flip side of the coin, the kids sounded AWESOME. Aside from one kid who is sick and has a solo, the rest of them nailed the songs and they are doing a fantastic job. I am so psyched about Sunday night it’s INSANE. And all the people I’ve invited will just have to flounder around on their own because I’m in the sound booth and cannot see them until the free ice cream after.
SO looking forward to rehearsals on Friday and Saturday. They are just too dang cute!!!!!
