Observations in Life- 1st Edition

Let’s see how this goes…first edition.

Everyday there are things that happen or that I see and they make me stop and think.

Lately (probably since I’ve been spending so much time with my nephew) I’ve been thinking about babies (not necessarily about having one—hang in there mom—soon enough:)—but more about this thing we go about everyday called Life!

I remember when my oldest brother and sister-in-law told me they were having a baby–that baby just turned 7 in September. Within those 7 years I have been many places and done many things and currently I have 1 niece and 3 nephews! I’m one lucky auntie! 🙂

I look at them all and think: ‘as this Earth turns we all continue to age’.

Not age in a negative way just grow.

I was riding the train to work the other day and I looked around and thought ‘all of these people were once little babies and someone had to feed them prunes for the first time (as I did to Smushy that morning) and someone had to change their diapers. Life is really pretty amazing!

The Earth takes 365 days to rotate around the sun and in that time we all grow! (some become wiser than others 😃)

I have a pretty strong religious base but even without that I can’t help but wonder about how and why we as Earth-lings came to be? And why Earth? Why not Mars or Jupiter? Sometimes I like to think that there are other beings on another planet and they watch our “reality” shows and laugh! Strange thought I know!

Things in our everyday can be tough sometimes but I think if we all stop and take a look at a baby and then at an adult and realize that from one year to the next- 365 really does fly by!

Taking a little “Fall Break” and going to try and observe life some more in the next few days—with my hubby! ❤️

Leave a comment if you ever think of Life like I do! 😎

Cheers to a great weekend!


Time Is Flying By

I have found myself losing days in the past few weeks – I’m just so busy, which is good!

Spent some time in role reversal with parents. My mom had some surgery on her heel and was out of commission for a few days. The day of surgery went pretty quickly and we were back at my parents’ house about lunch time. My mom was quite a trooper and didn’t feel the need to take much pain medicine. She had never had to use crutches or a walker before so that was challenge for her – but she did great with a little practice!

She had to keep weight off her heel for about a week and that was driving her nuts! I took her to the doctor the other day and the stitches are out and it is healing nicely! Hopefully the surgery fixed all the initial pain and problem.

I enjoy the changing colors of the fall.  I need to get outside more though… I love working in the theatre but every now and then I get a little “cabin fever” and need to remember to take advantage of the outside world- even if it means putting a scarf and coat on!

I’m a “working auntie” these days. I am getting my practice for someday when I am a mom. My sister-in-law is working full time and I get to help out and watch “Smushy” a few days a week.

A friend from high school was getting rid of some of her baby stuff and so I took advantage of that and bought her old high-chair, a play-mat and some other toys to help entertain him while we are hanging out at our house.

In amongst continuing to work on the house and helping babysit my nephew, I got asked last minute to join the Stage Management team of a new show, “Honeymoon In Vegas”.  I joined the production on the day of the first preview, in quite a bit of tension and chaos. Seems that within the last few years this is the role I slip into with ease.  The show is now officially open and I am a part of it for just a short time as I have returned to Broadway to sub on “Rock Of Ages” for about three weeks.

Time is going to fly by with all this stuff happening in my world-before I know it it will be the new year and who knows what 2014 will bring. I hope I can do my best to find times to slow down and enjoy life!
