It is 15 days before Christmas and all through the house...yeah aside from my Christmas themed table cloth and a Christmassy birdfeeder decoration, my house is one big BAH HUMBUG! The Christmas trees pictured above are trees from some Christmases past - 2009, 2011, 2012, and 2013. Since 2013 we haven't really had much in … Continue reading Christmas Past, Present, and Future
Every single year for more years than I can remember, Fall has been an incredibly frantic time for me. This year is no exception. In fact, it's a little more insane than usual. I am currently directing two productions - one staged and one murder mystery, working full-time, trying to secure a mortgage so we … Continue reading Another Fall Frenzy
Hello, free time! I'm in the after frenzy lull and enjoying it. I have had time to watch some Hallmark movies (I'm a total sap), time to think a bit, and time to catch up on what's happening in the world.

In 12 days I get back into the whirlwind of auditions, rehearsals, set build, performances and set strike and I can't wait! If I could move up the auditions a week I would as I am that pumped to get started! The audition process is an interesting beast.
