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
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. I have read about one famous person after another being accused of sexual assault, … Continue reading After the Frenzy…
I wasn’t always a fan of President Obama, but I cannot say the man wasn’t a good president. This list I have seen on many valid news sites as well.
The sentence I hear most from well-meaning, conservative friends since President Trump’s election is this: “We suffered 8 years under Barack Obama.”
Fair enough. Let’s take a look.

Do we check in with our family and friends? Do we do something for others? Do we focus on ourselves? How we … Continue reading Priorities
I've been taking a bit of a back seat lately regarding my activism and social media. It's even been a while since I have posted a blog. Theatre business and rehearsals, work and errands have kept me too busy to focus on other things. Or so you would imagine. Lately, I've been taking on an … Continue reading Musings and Observations
Life these days has been hectic. All good types of hectic. Working full-time again is a great. Theater activity is high, which is wonderful for my creative side. Activism has been put on the back burner a bit - well maybe more of a side burner. Blogging about life and such has been going swimmingly. … Continue reading Feeling Happy…
Today my stepson's fiance publicly announced that they're expecting a bundle of joy in August. I'm going to be a grandmother at the age of 48. Holy cow! Needless to say the first thing one does when we get this news is start looking at baby items online to buy. The other thing we do … Continue reading Oh My! I’m going to be a Grandmother!
In community theater, we don many hats - actor, director, tech, stage manager, costumer, set builder - you get the point. You are a Jack/Jane of all trades and you like it. One of the most common issues when putting on a larger show in community theater is the need to double cast your actors … Continue reading Becoming Molly & Emily
Those of us who are busy people don't realize how busy we are until we think about it - which we don't very often. Busy people just do. We don't think about it, we just do what we obligated ourselves to do. Those who are not busy people cannot imagine how we do all that … Continue reading Living a Busy Life
