show's over

nothing on the radar. going to catch up some at home.

knee is still hurting... it was better when i didn't walk for a week, but then I walked and striking the set Sunday made it worse. so not walking dogs again.

started a new cross stitch project.. some bird ornaments. not nearly as difficult as the eagle thing, except there's gold metallic thread involved, ,which I hate. oh well.

oh, and I have a new niece, Scout. she was born the 1st and I went to OKC last week to see her. tiny. I've been told most babies are. ok.

got the front room painted and got rid of some high voice/soprano music in the process. freed up some space for all the stuff piled on the piano.  guest bathroom is next.  Matt came by last night to help get the mirror down. prolly waiting till the weekend to paint though.

we've started talking about possibly moving somewhere closer to where RTO works.  but there's a lot that needs to be done. Funny how all the projects we've put off will be done just so we can leave. eh, we'll see.

limping over the finish line...

made it through the first weekend of Mousetrap in spite of the dogs.

last Tuesday they took off after some ducks and I was determined not to let them go so they dragged me a few feet and I bent my right leg kinda funny before letting them go.  so a week later it's still a little hurty, I had someone look at it, nothing broken but it will probably take two months to heal completely.  I'm not limping as pronouncedly as I was the first couple days at least, so by opening night I was fine.

anyhoo supposed to lay off the knee for the next week or so and got some drugs for the pain. Dogs will have to walk separately from now on. This will eat up a bit more time than usual, but on the plus side I'm finally starting to lose some weight.

one week

til opening.  had a good board preview so I don't have to go back til Monday! still am really slow at reading though. 

finished my 20th book for the year last week, Inside of a Dog. or week before last, I don't remember. it seems like forever ago.

finished the eagle needle point and immediately took it to Hobby Lobby to frame it. should see it in April. yay! so I think I'm going to try a tiny sweater next. we'll see.

plugging along

to the point I should have my show memorized. have been trying to record, but the computer is not cooperating. have been watching tv and working on the flag/eagle thing.  got the flag done and started on the eagle wing and filling in when I get tired of thinking.

Oh, haven't mentioned the new dog.  Her name is Ella and she's a black lab mix about three years old.  already knew sit, though I think we use it more than she was used to. anyhoo, she quickly learned not to mess with the cats.  or not to chase them at least.  she still stares at them and sometimes whines cause they don't like her.

still reading a bit.

and I'm turning 40 here shortly. yay!

Trip to IL went fine.

busy, busy

for me anyway.... RTO's grandmother died earlier this month. they had a service here in TX and there will be another in IL in February.  we've been to Florida and back.  I haven't been able to get back into my routine. Food tracking is going about as expected, which is not so great.  I mean, I'm tracking things okay, it's just I keep blowing through my calories for the day.  RTO gave me a fitbit also, walking the dog is about all the walking I do.  oh well.

finished Laura's blanket and keep staring at the eagle needlepoint, but not making any progress. it just looks so complicated I can't decide where to start. I need to take an afternoon to just concentrate on it. It's actually pretty close to done... about 3/4 of the way done, just a wing and flag left before I can fill in.

two books down...

and happy new year!  mine's been kind meh so far.  slept a bit much yesterday and ran around all day today. have a dentist appointment tomorrow.  w007!

managed to keep up with the daily short journal only missed a couple of days last year. and this year of course, I'm still writing 14 in the blank space.

won't be much going on here till later. we're going to Florida and I haven't seen any audition notices that have grabbed me.  I'm thinking I may just retire. but then I always hit that mood at some point.  we're still catching up on the dvr from the last two shows I did in October. I think we've finally made it up to December at least.
