All went well yesterday. I went in and they gave me the following lines.

Oh, so you had a car accident. And you haven't called us yet? let me just> tell- things will get better as soon as you call us and let us starthelping> you with all the hassles.

or something like that I memorized it and then tried to find themoments in it and then the first time I did it, he seemed impressed. Then he gave me direction on what they were looking for. I said it like 3 more times andhe seemed happy. Then I went over to susan smith's office. She is an agent in Nashville and then that was it. The second time that I read through it. That is when he gave medirection, he said that I switched over to actor mode.

So we will see what happens all in all it was good times.

The family went with me to Nashville. We were going to tod od some geo caching, but we were missing a cable and decided to go to the music store and rei and just hang out. Eric was cracking me up last night. We had a good time.

Spent most of the morning cleaning up around the house and working on art projects. My mom came by with the girls and then it was back to cleaing. Still have more cleaning to do this afternoon, then off to work tonight. Atmosphere at work is not good really. Everybody thingks everybody could do more blah blah. Even in some cases it is true. I have my on opinions, but choose not to express them here. I just go in do my job and can be happy with that.

No class

I am saddend because I don't have class this week, but I do have 2 auditions that makes me feel a little better. I am still trying to decide about the 2nd audition. The experience of doing an audtion for film will be a good one. One audition is on Wednesday in Nashville and the other audition is on Saturday In B-town. I would love to see more film stuff come to North Alabama. We have such beautiful places here that would be great for films of all genre.

Work was crazy busy this weekend. I was glad when the weekend was over. I will be off from the depot tomorrow. We have drum lessons in Huntsville tomorrow afternoon. That is always fun. Heidi is improving most wonderfully.

It has been a very busy week for me. Getting back in the grove still from the holidays. Trying to start this whole acting stuff is really keeping me busy. I meet with an agent on Wednesday next week up in Nashville. I hope to get some work from that.

I did go to the dr. I have contact dermatitist. uggh. I went Tuesday to the dr and have been on a steriod pack. I don't take meds because I am light weight, easy cheap date whatever you want to say. I don't drink alcohol for the same reason. My body doesn't handle stuff like that. So it has been an intresting week. Once I told the dr. about the last time I took meds, he cut my dose in half and so that made it easier. I would probably be dead had he not. So It is much better my neck that is. It has almost cleared completely.

Working at OD this weekend. 1 night down 3 more to go until I have another off day. Not fun, but things could be a whole lot worse. I hpe to find something new soon. I hope I get an acting job soon that would be nice.

well off to spend time with my super sexy honey.

Nice Weekend

We had a great weekend. The only bad part about it was that it ended with me having a an allergic reaction from something that we found in the woods. I guess it is some kind of skin allergy. If it doesn't get better soon, I will be going to the DR. There was a bad part, it ended.

On the acting note, Congrats to Philph Seymour Hoffman and Reese Witherspoon for winning Golden Globe awards. Also, I have been sending out headshots like crazy to try to begin my acting job journey. It is a tough road, but hey if it was easy everyone would be doing it right.

good day

It was a great day today. we went out geo caching. It was my first time and I found my first cache. I actually found 2. We took our dogs with us, and I think they enjoyed it. I had fun with them anyway. I so enjoy spending time most of all with my best friend. It is just nice to go out with no worries, agenda and just experience God's creation and it is amazing to have someone to share it with. We are so lucky to have each other. We may never be millionares, but we definitely are wealthy in our own way.

We are going to hang out with friends tonight and meet some new people. That should be fun.

Today while out caching, I learned a little history fact.
On June 14, 1821, Cotaco County name was changed to Morgan County.

3 day weekend!

It will be nice to have one of those.

We have been busy the last couple of days rearranging the girls room, our office and the playroom. It is kind of sad a little because our girls are growing up. They no longer wat baby dolls (they did keep a few) and barbie dolls. They want tv, gaming systems before you know it they will want a car. Holly is talking sleep over for her birthday. I feel like they are slipping away and will be off to college tomorrow. It is a weird feeling I have. Even though they are growing up, I feel fortunate because I am at peace to know that Eric and I still love and know each other. Our relationship is stronger than ever. We are learning God's grace everyday and how sweet it is. I am so glad that no matter if I am a new vessel or a broken one that God can use me. with all my cracks and boy do I have those.

Anyway the last couple of days have been very tiring.

On the acting note, I am really working on that southern draw of mine. I am trying to get another headshot date set up. I haven't made acting class this month due to work. Hopefully next week.

Finishing up progress reports for school, they are due this week. Classes in the morning and then 3 days off. Joy Joy. I am looking foward to spending some time with my hubby. Happy Birthday out to our good Friend Scott Henard. We love you.

back in the reality saddle

School has started back. Progress reports from last semester are due. Work is work. Trying to get some acting work. I am learning that from that aspect that it is a lot of work. Headshots, agents, lot of searching for auditions. It is not as easy as it sounds. Sure you can find all kind of theatre work around, but not much film. Unless you want to do work that would be unseemly.

But I am keeping my head held high and marching on. I believe if it is going to happen it will happen.

Oh, I am also looking for another job. We are preparing to put the girls in school next year and I am looking for a daytime job.

Acting classes are going great. I love this craft.

Otherwise, all is kicking right along. We are getting ready to go to Disney World with my parents and sister family. Then in April I will be going to New York. It will all be grand.

Big props go out to Jmo for dealing with me and my headshots. LONG STORY for another day.
