Merry Christmas!

a little early, but knowing my current posting habits it may be next year before I think about posting again.

speaking of early, I've been up since about 5:30 this morning.  had the dog walked before I usually get out of bed. (10 ish)  so now the rest of the day will be all "What should I do now?"  rake the living room floor for one.  Sophie has spread stuffins all over. Read the Smithsonian magazine.  Hoping to get at least one more book in for the year, then I'll be at an even 60.  Less than last year, and I didn't even read a monster sized book that took me a month to read.  oh well. Here's hoping you (hi mom!) have a pleasant holiday.

it seems I used to write a lot more....

I went looking for pictures of Roxie on here last week because we had to put her to sleep and I knew we got her around the same time I started blogging.  anyway, not so many picture of her here. not sure where they ended up. 

so we buried Roxie out at RTO's parents' place along with other family dogs. Sophie seems mopey or maybe she's always been this way, it's weird to pay so much attention to her now. Roxie required a lot of attention. Sophie, not so much.

anyway, Roxie never let on that she was sick until she just quit eating last week so thing seemed to happen very fast. and now we've been Roxie less for a week.

maybe not so normal yet

this week has been doctor visits. just check ups, nothing new. I did have some trouble getting my blood drawn.  The guy stuck me in one arm and that didn't work so he ended up using the back of my left hand.  and then I tried to pass out.  they make kinda a big deal about it at the lab.  had to lay down and wait for them to check my blood pressure before they would let me go.

anyhoo, went shopping today.  I have about half of my Christmas stuff done, trying to push RTO to help with his family.  apparently Thanksgiving is kinda late this year, so there's only three weeks between it and Christmas. (at least that's what my therapist told me, looking at it, it's like three and a half.)

so routine was blown this week only walked the dogs today and didn't get much cleaning done.  haven't dusted in weeks. oh well.

made it through my show last weekend.  been trying to get back into my no show habits.  haven't started cleaning the house yet, but I am back to recording albums. dog walking never really went away. and I'm getting a bit more read. not sure if I'll try to add some singing/piano time into the schedule, I just really don't care at this point.

so it's been a while

Hot 'n Cole opens Wednesday.  I've been busy learning music.  started dog walking again though, the weather has been nice. well, maybe not so nice today (windy and cool and cloudy).  managed to read a book, Trying to Save Piggy Sneed, it's a collection of stuff by John Irving.  anyway, hoping I make it til Saturday, my throat is a little bit ticklish today, I think because the hall we rehearsed in yesterday was cold and I was too stubborn to go get my sweater out of the car.  oh well.

too busy

well, Appointment with Death opened. and I'm already rehearsing for my next show, Hot and Cole.  It's a lot of music to learn in, um, four weeks.  so reading has been almost non-existent. Finished Oryx and Crake and now i've got a couple magazines to read. I'm ready for fall!  c'mon!

what now?

got cast in a show, Appointment With Death.  It opens Sept 11, so I've been in rehearsals for a few weeks now. It's a very different role for me, very dramatic.

I guess we're on dog walk hiatus as well.  I get the odd walk in here and there, but mostly it's too hot to walk them.

reading has been a slog.  Mozar'ts Sister took me forever, she was so whiny. and On Repeat was dense and mostly about how we really ought to study why we like repetitive music and listening to the same music over and over again.

anyway, that's it for now.
