Acting Class

I just got in from acting class. It was yet another fun night. I was first up tonight. It was needless to say fun stuff. I learned a lot tonight. I learned that anything can happen and you just have to go with the flow of things. It was very fun. Going to class is like going to another world. It is like what they say on the intro to the real world on MTV. It is when everyone stops being nice and gets real or something of that nature. It is just wonderful.


Jmo's took some pictures of me, they are below, thus see below.

Acting clas tonight. I am excited about that. It is always a good time. All else is well here. Just trying to be myself and be positive, upbeat, and happy. Hopefully rub off on anyone that is around me.

Props again to jmo. You did good.

Jmo's wonderful work again. Posted by Hello

Emotional !!!!!!!!!!!!

Well, I am having an emotional moment right now. I just talked with a friend of mine that I have been worried about and now I feel better. I am at the brink of tears of relief. I love her dearly and she has been going through a tough time over the past couple of years, but seems to be doing better. I have been worried because she is doing so well, but after speaking with her this evening, I feel that she is going to be alright. I wish you well friend.

On another note, I swung by jmos to sign some paper work and pick up suprisingly some pictures. Thanks again jmo, you are the snizzle. They are wonderful. Big props to him for taking such wonderful photos.

Over all busy, but productive day.

Tiring past 2 days.

We administrated SAT's at our homeschool covering the last 2 days. Myself and other degreed folks voulenteered to give the test. I thought I got tired taking the test, giving is even more punishment. I didn't test Heidi, except at home. I did test Holly to see how well I am teaching her. Heidi is just not ready.

My pictures that Jmo took came out great. I can't wait to see them on paper. Big Kudos to him for doing that for me.

Acting class got canceled last night. My teacher got stuck in California. So, I hung out with Eric at band pratice then we headed over to get the girls. It was a good night.

weekly recap

Been busy since my last post. I worked all weekend. Got off early Sunday night. So eric and I watched Finding Neverland. He liked it to.

Monday same old same old routine. School, housework, swim team practice, work.

Last night, we headed over to jmo's work and took some photos. He did an awesome job. I didn't realize how tiring all that could be. It takes a lot of work to be a supermodel, I bet.

Finding Neverland Review!!!!!!

This is a wonderful film. I just finished up the DVD. I have always loved the story of Peter Pan. I love anything that has ever been related to it. I guess it is the kid in me. This movie is no exception. I loved it. Wow, I cried like a baby in it. When I heard that they were making this movie, I was a bit unexcited. I was like great another Peter pan movie. What else can they do with this story? Boy, I underestimated the whole idea. You must see this, or you may become a pirate. I wished I could say more, but the way I am feeling cannot be put into words, it can only be felt. SEE THIS DVD!!!!!!!!

Shall we _____________?

You must ask yourself this question in your life at some point.

What provoked this? I just finished viewing the movie shall we dance. Wow, I thought this would be a good movie, but I didn't realize that it would more than just another pretty woman, or runaway bride or maid in manhattan type movie. Meaning this, unrealistic, fairy tale movies that chicks dig. This movie to me provoked thoughts of my reality. I guess that is why it meant so much.

I am much like the wife in this movie for one. We (eric and I ) run a well oiled machine. We have a wonderful life. We are well on our way to living and dying by the American dream. We are happy. I am threatned by anything Eric does without me because I am afraid. Even though he does things without me, I don't like it. Like tonight he is camping without me. It drives me crazy. Does this mean I want him to stop doing those things? No, of course not. I am becoming to realize that there are certain things that he is good at and loves that I can't or don't want to participate in. I love hiking and camping, but not as much as he does. I love music, but I suck at it. I am learning, especially after watching this film, that we need to do things that fufill our lives. It is not that I am not enough for him, but I am not the only thing in his life that makes him happy. Like right now I have no one at home. At first, I was somewhat depressed, but after watching the movie I was watching, I am not. I love movies, theatre, and anything related to that sort of thing.

The commentary or special feature interviews are wonderful to.

I am much like the other character the husband (Richard Gere) because I am at a point that I am ashamed to admit that sometimes, I am not happy. I have a lot. I am blessed. I was born to parents who taught me about God and his son. I have a wonderful hubby, two wonderful daughters, a great house, dog and 2 cars. One should be happy with this right. Every so often, I get unhappy. I believe this is becuase I am at a stand still. I am not experiencing life, God or anything. Life is supposed to be our journey to grow closer to being who we are supposed to be. WE never arrive, until we die. I believe that God gives us desires in our life to make us better people or make us more the person he wants us to be. I try to live a transparent life. I don't have a false relationship with Christ most of the time. Every step I take I try to take it truly with honesty. I want to be me. I am so happy that God can guide me by using any manner of his creating he chooses. Some people can learn things by doing, some by watching, some by hearing. god is the best teacher on the planet.

So, did I gain all this from a movie. I learned bits and pieces on this journey of life.

Robert Frost put it best.

Two roads diverged in a wood, and I—

I took the one less traveled by,

And that has made all the difference

Now I remember one of the reason I got married and had kids!!!!!!

I hate being alone. I have been such since about 5:00 this afternoon. I went to walmart got groceries. Now I am about to watch save the last dance and finding neverland.

Holly is at a sleepover. (Her very first sleepover with other folks beside family. I remember those days fun times.)
Heidi wanted to stay with my sister.
Eric went camping. (I couldn't go since I have to work tomorrow at 8:30.)

So here I sit lonely and alone. It is the weirdiest feeling for real.

Acting class is going wonderfully. I love my class and it is cool to meet new friends. I am learning so much stuff. I am reading 2 books that my acting teacher wanted me to read. I am enjoying them aslo.

My schedule at work is looking better all the time. I work 3 days a week now 5:-9:30 and every other weekend sat. 8:30 - 7:30 and sun 12- 5. Now I will get to come to church every week. Yeah!!!!!!!

Well that is my update. I have got to get started on my movies.

wow has it been that long

I keep saying I am going to blog, but I forget to.

A lot has happened since my last entry. We moved some furniture, traveled to pell city, smith lake, We went hiking. I have been working. My hours this week got cut back a little yippee. I am working like 5 -10. instead of 3 - 10. It gives me more home time.

I get to go to acting class this week. It is tonight. That will be fun.

Due to my screwed up scheule I still haven't done the picture thing. ARGH. I have got to make some time to do some photos for sure.

Rain Rain Go Away!!!!

Well got up a little later than normal today. My trip to the woods was postponed since We decided that we needed to work on the flower bed in the back and the front. So yesterday afternoon, I started working on the back flower bed at 1:30 didn't finish up until 6:00. It looks great. I got several more plants into the ground. I was exhausted by the time I went to bed. I didn't get up until 9:00. Woke up with a small headache. I really woke up at 7:30, but laid in bed and dosed in and out of sleep until 9:00 when ERic called me. His voice reminded me that I am not a teenager anymore and that I had responsibilities to take care of. oops. I feel bad for him. He worked in the fron flower bed, but still had to get up at 4:30 this morning. He said he felt good though.

Hopefully, I will get with someone this weekend to shoot some photos of me. I really need to begin working on My portfolio for acting jobs. I have got one company promising to call me soon to do some work, but I need to get them some new photos shot so they know that I look a bit different. Hopefully that will happen.

Eric said something about going to Nashville to REI this weekend. We will see how that goes.

Well must get off of here and do some teaching.

WOOHOO, THANK YOU GOD! It is a beautiful day. I don't have anywhere that I have to be. I get to spend time with the family. We are going to drive down to the covered bridge in Cullman and hike and take some pictures. I want some for my scrapbook of Alabama that I am making. It will be fun and exciting I think. Just being outside this glourious day is good enough for me. Eric had other things I think he wanted to do, but he is going to sacrifice those today and go out with me, God, what a man you have given me. I am the luckiest women in the world.

No acting class this week, my acting teacher is in Italy. He had planned this trip before the pope died and all. I will miss class, but I am kind of glad to have a day off after working 5 days in a row. I know people think I am crazy, but I do more than just work. I homeschool my kids, keep a house. I don't see how women work 40 + hours and run a household craziness. I admire them.

Well, here is to a beautiful day!!!!!
