SHABBAT SHALOM Y’ALL. Happy Friday, it’s Finally Shabbat and yay!!
A small synopsis
Well, it’s just been one of those weeks I’d like to kind of (just kind of) write off because it seems the more I’ve tried to accomplish the less I have. I just want a do-over. For two evenings straight I hadn’t been able to do anything because of my blinding headache. Thank goodness it didn’t happen tonight, now I’m just sneezing my brains out. Is there a such thing as being allergic to one’s self?
Other things happening…
plans coming together,
boat show season is up on us (it really is terrible when I used to be BoatShowGirl and now my passion is so dead),
week 2 (or day 3, however you want to see it) of being sent scripts to read,
and that’s about it.
I’m just super boring.
A life stripped of all it’s joy is not a life worth living. Even while I am not feeling up to visiting or being me or out in the open trying to hide just because I’m tired….I need to continue the things that bring me nuggets of joy. Because, otherwise, might as well be in the bottom of a lake somewhere feeding off that coral.
A life without glitter and color is dead to me.
A life without matzo ball soup is, well, the biggest of all sins for a Jewish girl.
Soup from my favorite place. <3
National Speak Like a Pirate Day was Thursday the 19th. I remember when I used to be Pirate enough. Now, another thing I’ve lost. Pirates are tough, Pirates don’t give up. I can’t believe I don’t identify with being a Pirate anymore. Maybe that’s what’s wrong with me. I know (or have read) there are Jewish Pirates… so maybe I’m not really breaking any rules if I can be Jewish but still stay partial to my Pirate roots?
Getting that random message from Elaine’s husband…. it was the best thing in a really long time.
Still finding out how amazing my new phone is, even though new technology scares me. Just don’t tell anyone (since I’m supposed to be that person that has all the answers, apparently).
What am I looking forward to this week?
I guess these are my plans for Saturday: I’m going early a.m. with a friend to yard sales then meeting up with a different friend for thrift store shopping in early afternoon. Then we’ll be talking about our plan(s) to start our separate buying/selling businesses and chat business. With it being close to the end of the year, it would be nice to officially start in about 2 weeks when our new year starts.
I really need to work on some art and writing.
Maybe the boat show? I don’t know if I really want to go, but one of my guys told me we’re right next to the company that I used to work for, and they’re still family that I haven’t seen in ages… so maybe I might and should go and spend time with them.
More script reading!
More working on plans!
And hopefully, no more headaches.
And… counting down the days until I get to see all of my family at the big shindig theatre awards ceremony. I miss everyone so much. It’s a good problem to have (but kind of a sucky one) when you know so many people but everyone is so scattered (theatre life, it’s a weird one) and you rarely see each other except for shows or things like this because you can’t ever find the chance to freely get together… because you have opposite schedules, or, there’s just so many people to see and things to do that you give up. I have all of those problems. I need to find a reason to call people to certain restaurants and have a big gala again. Everyone actually pays attention to my calls for get togethers, so, maybe I should try it again some time soon.
I guess that’s really it. For now.
