Hello, all! It’s really late, but for some reason I am in the mood to blog and it has been way too long, so here I am. Things are pretty good at the moment. After I returned from Alaska and got my Daughter J. married off, I went back to work at a place I had worked before, off and on for about 12 years now. I was preparing to audition for Ardmore Little Theater’s Fiddler On the Roof and I ended up getting asked to Stage Manage, which for me is just as much fun as being in the cast. It’s going to be a wonderful show, I can already tell. The cast is a perfect mix of experienced and newbie, and everyone is really enthusiastic and cooperative. For now. I feel wretched and traitorous saying this, may ValJean forgive me, but I think Fiddler may end up topping Les Mis with regard to just the number of cast members, beauty of the sound produced, and the general experience of the production being one of a cohesive team being dedicated to a common high goal, which is creative excellence. In short, this cast has got it goin’ on!
It’s January 16 and my Christmas tree is still up. Between work and the theater I am working 13 hours a day and I just haven’t been in the mood to mess with it. Unfortunately the two squatters living in this house, who I just happened to give birth to, wouldn’t do any housework or take it upon themselves to UN-decorate the Christmas decorations without a gun to their heads. Figuratively speaking, obviously. So I’m thinking maybe the tree will be down by Valentine’s Day. That would definitely be a record for me. Who knows, maybe I’ll feel like messing with it before then.
Health and fitness-wise, life is … well, let’s just say I’m not working as hard on that as I have in the past. I have tried to get my head together and it just doesn’t seem to be working. I can’t afford to actually pay money for Weight Watchers right now, I can’t seem to manage to do low carb the right way (or stick with it longer than a few days), and exercise is lower on my priority list than gum surgery. Maybe one of these days I’ll get back on the wagon.
Anyway. It is later than late and I work early tomorrow, so I wish good health and good blessings on each and every one.
Until next time,
