The Dog Days

"It's been a haaaard Daaay's Night/ And I've been working like a doooog." so say the Beatles and so say I. I should actually be working right now instead of writing this post for my seemingly-defunct Blog, but alas, procrastination is a very easy thing to do. ( I should even be cooking dinner, but I'm considering asking the Hubs if we can go out/order in). If I were someone else looking at me, I'd call myself "'Lazy McSlotherton" or something equally clever yet insulting. I've had some excitement in the last month or two, and even a "vacation"- though it was spent trying to ignore the To-Do list and a bunch of sneaky stress that left me sobbing in a back room at the vacation house one night. I don't often lose my grip on The Cool, but when I do, I'm gone for awhile before I can re-join life.

So its been a summer full of work, stress, procrastination and accomplishment, and I am just aiming for September 13th right now. That's the day that my latest show opens, and I can turn it over to the Wardrobe Supervisor and saunter into the sunset... towards the next due date. I feel like I should know by now that life is a series of choices followed by due dates, but I can't help but feel there's got to be more to life than working/earning. I've always felt that way acutally. My firmest belief is that you have to do what you love. The End. No qualifications. I do believe that I am following that, but I feel a bit clouded and pulled in opposite directions lately, and I keep finding myself wishing that I could have a month to myself to hang out with my daughter, cook dinner and make sure the laundry's done, and then somewhere in there I might get some time to feed my creativity. yep- Drained is the right word. So, the new Crusade has a title now. Onward and upward.

I hope that you all made it through the summer (and this post!)with more joy than pain, and I will keep regaling you with the inane details of my psyche served with a generous sprinkle of Penzey's Special Extra-bold India Peppercorns, freshly ground, of course!!
