God! How I hate writing this entry....
It's been a week as of last night that you have gone missing and I can't believe you disappeared into mid air! You have always been my problem child but you were always loved, and you knew it. 15 yrs 4 months 11 days, and all but the 1st 8 weeks of your life... you were my Lil Em. Now you've left me guessing if you're someone else's Emma or if you have left us to join your sister, Baby, at the bridge. We've been through a lot together and I thank you f
On May 7th, 2015....a wonderful litter of puppies were born. It would be many weeks before I knew which one was going to be mine but I knew one would be going home with me. I've already picked a name for him, after one of my favorite children's books. 'Where The Wild Things Are' call name Max. To my surprise and delight, Pam who bred these wonderful puppies loved the idea of a wild theme...so they became the 'Wild" bunch.
Max was know as Evan at that time, and this is his 3 day
Tomorrow night will be one year that I lost Emma...followed by Baby's anniversary just 2 weeks after. Feeling a bit mixed as I miss these two so much. Thanks for the wonderful memory today facebook as I know tomorrow's will start bringing the tears...
I went to the audition last night for the play. There were 7 of us there auditioning and 3 people to listen to us read, one being the director. I have never done this before and I felt a little out of place as I was the only first timer there . I also found out after I was the only one looking at the script for the first time as the others had known about this audition for at least a week if not longer and had received copies ahead of time . I had no clue before Saturday night that it w
I am happy to report that Dean has been healing just fine but what a very stressful few weeks this has been...
It all started the Friday night before Dean's surgery. Accidents are just dumb, and boy did I have a doozy. I tripped late Friday night going into my bathroom and WHACK! went straight down. My jaw is still not right but I split my chin (which has healed) and I had a baseball (now its golf ball sized) lump on my right knee. Never mind that I couldn't cough or sneeze, due to the brui
Well 3 of 8 performances are done already, I'm surprised how fast it's going and yet so glad that we have a few very much needed days off . I love this experience but am totally exhausted, probably due to all the adrenalin we build up and expend each night. Friday's show was an extremly small audience, almost disappointing in a way but last night we sold the show out including a few extra chairs that they decided to add at the last minute in one of the ailses. It was amazing as you draw so m
Well what can I say about tonight other then it was awesome! They took our head shots first and then we ran to get dressed real quick. It turns out the get-up I put together will end up being my costume with an embelishment of tinsel on the hems, and Leslie the costumer is looking for a black petticoat for me. So my costume will be black and red and decorated with silver. I had a red boa too and the other girls are in green/black and white/red and a multi color print, so we're all differ
Well I know they are, and they've learned that there's strength in numbers as well as an intimidating stature.
On the 4th of July, we were at the next door neighbors party for a bit with the tzu crew. They were finally relaxed and not afraid of Teddy, the neighbors 70 or so lb Goldendoodle. Max used to pee himself whenever Teddy came into our yard and went after him to play so this was real progress until....
Decker was sleeping next to my chair belly up. Teddy decided to put his nose
Okay, here are some bad pictures of the cast of the play. These were taken by the director and we were paying attention more to the photographer instead, but you get the idea of the cast here.
Well our last week of rehearsals start Monday with the following Monday through Wednesday being full dress rehearsals followed by an unofficial performance for the seniors on Thursday the 4th. It has really snuck up quickly. We have convinced the director to let us play 2 songs and just sing the
I received this in an e-mail and thought I'd like to share it with everyone. I think it has a lot of meaning, hope you enjoy reading it.
Recently I overheard a mother and daughter in their last moments together at the airport. They had announced the departure.
Standing near the security gate, they hugged and the mother said, "I love you and I wish you enough".
The daughter replied, "Mom, our life together has been more than enough. Your love is all I ever needed. I wish you enou
Well many of you who know me know that I am very community oriented and involved in a community service club. Back in the Fall we had a couple of people from our local theater group come to speak at one of our dinner meetings. They had some of us participate in an improv type skit and since, Dick has been trying to get me to go to an audition . I missed the last one in December as I was in London and the play opened this weekend. I had gone with several members of my club and sure enough, I
Well on Monday evening, I went to meet the cast of the play. We read through the entire thing and I'll have to say that I'm really starting to look forward to this, it will be quite funny . Now as for me, as of Monday night, I had zero in the way of lines, lol. All I knew was that I'd be playing a saloon girl and that things will come in time. I had to attend a blocking rehersal last night for the first and last scenes. I now have a name and several lines. My name is Tinsel , will have
Well I went to the Doctors today for my pre-op visit, . He asks "so are you ready" and of course I start to laugh and ask "are you ready" . He said he's looking forward to it as it's a different surgery then what he commonly gets to do, it's not unfamiliar just not the same daily routine. So I was a good girl, got my blood drawn at the lab, have my pain perscription to fill which I'll do this weekend and now I just have to get my call from the surgi-center to find out what time next Thurs
Not my story but it's too good not to share!

So, last week, something pretty tragic happened in our household. It's taken me until now to wrap my head around it and find the words to describe the horror. It started off simple enough - something that's probably happened to most of you.
Sometime between midnight and 1:30am, our puppy Evie pooped on our rug in the livi
Okay so today's episode of set building/tech practice ended early but was still productive. What we did today was decided on who was going to be taking on or off what from the stage as well as who was going to be closing and reopening the curtains when. I've taken a couple of more shots of the stage so here is what the set will essentially look like
First please forgive any typos as I have had 4 hrs sleep in since Tues night with a very light 3 hrs in-between.
What can I say, so far I'm having a great time although I am dead tired. I arrived yesterday at my hotel at 11 am their time (6am our) and I didn't sleep last night (I tried ) . I had walked all over the area yesterday and ended up last night at Harrodsâ€™s visiting Father Christmas (yes, I took my photo with him) and today I was all over London literally. I visited the D
Well it's been awhile since I've blogged but thought this deserved an entry, ! Those of you who know me know that I had been planning to travel to Europe this past September with my brother. I was really looking forward to this trip only to have my brother take a new position with another company, unable to go away. This left me with the choice of either canceling or going alone. After much debating and finding an offer I couldn't refuse, I am leaving on the evening of Nov 30th and will be
Well I found out I need to be there at 12:30pm , hmm was really hoping for first thing in the morning as I am not allowed anything by mouth after midnight but I'll have time to lounge around in the morning waiting around grrr. I have everything done at home that needed to be done, more or less so now I'm just waiting. This is going to be a long night but nowhere as long as my morning will be
OK, it's now 10:16 and I'm going stir crazy as I don't know what to do with mys
Well last night was a good rehearsal, went from 7 till almost 10. We went over 3 different scenes and made some minor adjustments. It's really something to see how it's all pulling together and everyone really seems to be getting into their characters now. I found out that on Monday, it will be a full cast rehearsal and someone will be there to take publicity photos as well as cast head shots . What this means is we all have to pull together some type of costume and be dressed for the photo
I think I'm in trouble, roflol. I have made friends with several sales associates in different stores and now when there's a huge sale, they call me up and ask about what I might be interested in. I had 2 call me up last week about sale items and they held things in the back room for me till I could get there to try them on . I think it's so sweet of them to do that but a girl can get into some serious trouble that way . I did get 3 pair of Cache jeans for 75% off which in itself is a maj
Well I can't help but to keep thinking about what happened to me the other weekend, not sure how I should feel about this. I was working at the store and this guy comes in with his girlfriend/wife, not sure. He's about 30 give or take a couple and as his gf/wife is looking at items in the store he approaches me. He says is your name Susan? I answer yes, he continues Susan (insert my last name here)? He continues "You don't remember me do you, my name is Lance (insert his last name) I manage
Well I finally did it, pulled off the breakfast fundraiser for the volunteer ambulance. We had a great turnout from both our club and the ambulance volunteers although we were a little light on the amount of patrons. We still made money and had a very good time. They really enjoyed this event and had decided that if I agreed to lead this event again next year, they would provide me a co-chair from their organization to share the work load and equally divide the responsibilities. I'd love
