Yes, that's right, after almost two weeks away, I have returned!
So what was I doing to keep myself so busy I couldn't blog? Well, I'll tell you! I was at the theatre. A lot. Like, every night. I just finished stage managing a show, and it kept me out until after 11 every night. Back in the day, when I was all young and stuff, that wouldn't have been a problem. Now, though... my usual bedtime is 10, so being out till after 11 is problematic, to say the least. By the time I'd get home, take care of Mia, get my stuff together for the next day, and do my night-time tooth-cleaning-face-washing-wind-down routine, I was hitting the hay after midnight.
But the show is now finished, and it was a fabulous success!
Today, being Memorial Day, was a day off from work, so not only did I not have to go back to the theatre, I didn't have to go to work, either! It was glorious! Of course, I woke up at my usual time. The light in the summer makes Mia wake up much earlier than I'd like, and she won't let me sleep. Since I was up, I decided to have a productive day. I did 7 loads of laundry, knit 14 rows of Baby Bear's blanket, packed two more boxes, watched Julie & Julia, The Pursuit of Happyness, Mona Lisa Smile, and Fame, and the first four episodes of Season 1 of Dexter. Wow. I also made lunch and dinner, walked the dog several times, and vacuumed my living room.
Oh, and I've been working on a new story. It's not on paper (or screen) yet, but I'm ironing out some details in my mind, and I should have something tangible very soon. It's nice, doing some more writing. I've been on a reading kick lately, and it was a nice break from writing, but I'm ready to dive back in.
What about you, blogglings? What have you been up to for the last few weeks?
