I hope so, too. I did clear some stuff out of the storeroom today, then took a nap. Lol. The drama team was a social outlet for me. I love performing and singing, although I haven't sung at church for over a year.
I haven't sang in church probably since I was six. I am going to start going to church again because I have my little nephew coming in a couple of days hopefully the fifth. I think that all of the negative experiences you have had in kentucky will be different when you get to Texas. Like the racism about your name? Texas is like, half hispanic! My husbands family is from texas (temple) and Jeff is actually a cowboy certified pro with the NRA. He knows some of the history of cowboys and some of the first cowboys were mexican.
That reminds me, I saw this mexican comedian one time. She was on a talk show about racism and they had a panel of comedians of different races to answer some questions about racist stereotypes. The question she was asked went something like this...
Girl: "Why do mexicans dress like cowboys?"
Comedian: "Mexicans don't dress like cowboys."
Girl: "What do you mean?"
Comedian: "Mexicans were the first cowboys, mexicans dress like mexicans. When you see a white man dressed like a 'cowboy'.... he is dressed like a mexican..."
Girl:*insert confused face here*
