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
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
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
I am having a hard time getting into the shopping/holiday spirit. Don't get me wrong but I just can't get into the gift buying/decorating, hustle and bustle of it all. I want to be with people and celebrate and have a good time but I just can't get into the material aspect of the holiday season. Am I the only one who feels this way? I just think that since I have no small kids to buy/celebrate with, doing all this shopping/getting into debt is totally worthless and unnecessary to buy gifts f
There have been so many changes to my life since I've last posted, some I'd prefer to keep personal but they include everything from health, to job, to relationship status, to residence, you name it.....
Lets just say after a number of years being unhappy, I finally found the courage to make some changes in my life and although it scares me some, I am better off for it. Never let anyone tell you that you can't.... too easy to prove them wrong.
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
Well here it is 12:30 AM and since I can't sleep, just got home a short bit ago, thought I'd write a quick update. The play is coming together nicely. I do have my lines down but still get a little confused if I'm tired, such as tonight. I know I'll have it down by Friday for sure,
Can't believe that in 71 hours, the first of 9 performances will be over. I'm really getting excited now which is great, I live on pure adrenaline when show time comes, which is probably why I crash so hard aft
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
I have been so super busy that I haven't even had much on line time. There are a few new challenges happening in my life right now that I can't currently share but hoping to be able to work through it soon enough. Some are easier to deal with than others.......
With all that is taking place I'm finding it extremely hard to find the holiday spirit. I look forward to meeting with people and having fun but the actual shopping and decorating is not with me this year. I think I'm just tired of
So I did go last night, not going to say very much though. We were told that we would hear within the next few days. They had me read for 2 different parts, and I was one of the last to leave, so I don't know, will have to wait and see I guess. :D
I got a part in the play!!!! I'm so excited I don't know what to do with myself! I will be in the play "The Philadelphia Story" , it was made into a movie in 1940. You can read more about it : http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0032904/
I will be playing the role of Liz Imbrie who is a photographer/reporter. Did I mention I'm excited yet! lol! :D
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
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
This was yet another awesome experience that I will never forget. I loved every part of it and would recommend community theater to anyone who ever thought of possibly getting involved in theater to try it. We are definitely a party group, I didn't get to bed till 6am yet again from Saturday's party, despite saying I wasn't going to stay out too late, to be followed by an "after the fact" party this coming Saturday. I'm getting a little tired but I'll be there. I received a CD of photos and
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
Well last night was the unofficial opening night, with tonight being the official. Difference is last night was a free performance for seniors and tonight will be a paying audience. We had about 60 show up and everything was great! It was amazing to actually be able to perform what we had been rehearsing for so many nights. Everyone was so psyched and ready for this, we just fed off of eachother's energy. I can't believe that I wasn't even the slightest bit nervous during the show. I am lo
or so it started out so. I went to work just like always and when I arrived, my manager arrived at the same time. We went to open the gate to go into the store (work at the mall) and this obnoxious odor started to come out. We looked at eachother and didn't know quite what to say. We weren't quite sure what it was, just that it was horrible, smelled like the sewer backed up and it was throughout the store. So we went to make the bank deposit stopping off at Eckards to pick up some air fresh
Well despite the sub-freezing temps and high winds making for whiteout conditions, I did go to the audition which continues tonight and next Monday as well. I was quickly reminded of how much fun this is and I'm so looking forward to being assigned a part. There are 22 parts for this play and many have very minimal lines but very involved physically on stage. I don't care what part I get, I do know I'll be in it though. Rehearsals start a week from tonight, and we have approximately 6 weeks
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
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 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
