I have been such a bad blogger lately. Things just get hectic with kids and the changing of the seasons and such.
I have eight shows between now and Christmas and it is likely to kill me, but at least I'll have some cash in my fanny pack. LOL. Speaking of fanny packs, have I told you how much I hate using one, though I'd hate losing a bunch of cash even more?
Miles gets to wear her costume to Mother's Day Out Tuesday, where she will trick or treat around the building and enjoy a pizza lunch. How sweet is that???? She is going to be Aerial and Lola will be either Snow White or a ladybug, depending on the weather. The ladybug costume is really warm, so it has to stay cold for that one. Miles wore the ladybug for her second Halloween. Miles has been a flower, a ladybug, a bumble bee (I sense a pattern those first three years LOL) and now Aerial. Lola was (sadly) nothing last year. She slept through it all. I was so worn out from my surgery that I just didn't have time to think about a 5 month old's costume. I am sad about that but I'll make it up to her with two costumes this year! One good thing about having two girls...they can share clothes/costumes.
Saturday night, while bored, I decided to do something that I had meant to do for a while. I took a few minutes to go to a talent agency website in Nashville and submit an application for each of my children. I uploaded pictures and waited to see if they were accepted.
On Sunday night, I received an email saying that both had been accepted and that I would be contacted in the event of a possible job. Tonight, as I got ready for bed, I checked the caller ID. I don't know why; I was home almost all day! Anyway, there was the name of the agency staring back at me.
I hurriedly checked my messages. There was one from them! Expecting them to simply be checking in, welcoming me or such, I listened anxiously. Imagine my disappointment when I heard the lady say that they wanted Lola to come in at 4:30 for a St. Thomas Hospital commercial. How I missed the call is beyond me, I was at home! Grrrrrrr! It was short notice BUT I had only registered them the day or two before.
From now on, I will be watching that phone like a hawk. LOL.
So tomorrow is my sixth anniversary. Sometimes it seems so strange that so much time has passed. I have a hard time remembering how detached I really am from college life and irresponsible living.I guess it sort of reminds me of Green Day's lyric, "I hope you had the time of your life." I did. And I am sooo thankful for that. I learned so much in that time frame. Yeah, I learned some super hard notions. I also just learned a lot about people. Looking back, I can't help but praise the LORD that I didn't fall victim to a serial killer or something. Then again, I had the greatest group of friends to watch out for me.
I learned that no matter how much you think you love somebody, they might be gay. ;) BUT that you can love them just the same because they are worth soooo much more to you than what you wanted them to be in college.
I learned that no matter what you learn in psychology, people will amaze you with their abilities to be psycho while hiding it (not talking about the same person here!)....and how to screen their calls.
I learned that Krystal chili pups minus the weiner are NOT something you should eat if you have had a little too much poison...cause they burn coming back up.
I learned that people have no clue who is really pro-choice vs. pro-life, much less people knowing themselves where they'd stand if in those shoes. (Friends go through a lot with each other and know each others' secrets.)
I learned to never say never.
I learned that you can't let a psycho b-word to come between you and friends over your husband. (I stupidly let myself feel weird around mutual friends who make it a point now to ask why the heck I acted like they wouldn't want me around anymore just because I found an awesome boyfriend/future husband.)
I learned that you should always check and make sure that the friend's car that you are driving doesn't have expired tags.
I learned that money isn't everything, the hard way. My parents' had some bad business deals/investments that left me a little less spoiled and it was hard. But I made it...
I learned to never trust a DIVA to protect me from an impending tornado. LOL CASEY!
I learned that the guys that make the biggest deal of themselves are really the guys who are up to their eyeballs in debt paying for everyone's drinks.
I learned that Natch taste as good as anything after the first few.
I learned not to report your car stolen until you are SURE it was stolen.
I started on a thyroid medication on Thursday. Ashamed as I am to admit, I had gained 25 pounds in a very short time span (just a few months!!). I recently found out that I had a low thyroid. Ok, I just want you to know that in the first two days of the thyroid pill, I lost 7 pounds and gained a ton of energy. Woo Hoo!!!!
As of last night, I felt like I was doing a lot better. Much less exhaustion and more energy. Then came today. I was wrong. I straight up thought I might fall right out in the floor of Lowes today because I found it so hard to keep my head up. What's up with that??
So on Saturday, I met up with Kirby and Joyce. Their kids are super cute, and it was nice to hold them, though little Don cried for me. :(
None the less, the weekend flew by much too quickly and now I am already anxious for another one. Poor Phil has been sick with some degree of a cold and headaches.
