Seriously, it has been a very very busy couple of months since my last posting. I have been to Albuquerque to see one of my short plays produced in a Women's Writing Festival (it was good!) and I scripted a show for The Grateful Divas, a quartet of uber talented Ladies. We did the show as a benefit for Cardinal Stage Co. and raised over $5000. How cool is that?
I sit here this evening, listening to my son practice piano and sipping an extra-dry martini. The snow is still blowing around outside. Today was a snow day for my little guy. I am beyond grateful that I shared child care with a sister mother. I got the kids in the AM, she got them in the afternoon. I was able to do some rewrites of my play. Heaven. I am not the kind of mother who can enjoy a full day cooped up with her offspring. I freely admit that I am not a model maternal unit. I'm okay with that some days. Other days, I feel absolutely unfit. The bottom line, though, is that my kid still has it better than most. Right? (Don't hesitate to reassure your BloomingtonGirl. I am nothing if not an insecure mass of jelly.)
In other news, I have three readings for my full length play coming up. It is beyond exciting. I need to do rewrites and start another. And, from an unrelated "to-do list", I should also finish sewing together the pieces of a sweater I finished knitting about 12 years ago. Pathetic? Yes. I know.
Valentines Day is coming up. Don't forget to romance your ladies, loyal male readers. They want to be romanced, even if they say they don't. Trust me on this one.
