Just Where Have You Been, Young Lady?

I know. I know. I just realized that January was the last time I posted on my blog. Every time I thought, “I haven’t written on my blog,” I honestly didn’t have anything to share. Things have been going fairly well, so thank God for that.

I really don’t have anything to share tonight either, but I wanted you all to know I’m okay. I have up and down days just like every other person in the world. I can certainly live with that!

Oh, yeah! I got a job! I work for my friend who is a lawyer for bankruptcies and credit disputes. It’s pretty much just the two of us, and I do general office stuff, like filing, opening and closing cases, etc. I work very part-time, which is perfect for me. I worked quite a few hours per week over the summer, and now that school has started, I’m going to have to scale back. For my sake, mentally. I have to accept that I just can’t do it all. But I really, really enjoy my job and working with my friend.

I was also in another play (musical) this summer. Karen and I did The Wizard of Oz together! I was Aunt Em, among other roles, and Karen was an Ozian and a Jitterbug. We had a lot of fun together, and I think we’ll do it again next summer. I realized I’m at my happiest when I’m doing a show, but I also realized that I can’t do as many as I’d like. It really takes it out of me. Tom is so supportive and wants me to do more shows, but I have to listen to my body, and it’s saying, “Take it easy, Liza Minelli.” Maybe I’ll do one this winter…

So, yeah. That’s what I’ve been up to. I promise I’ll try to write more often.
