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!
