And then...

I just put three dinner mystery shows on my calendar for the next month. I could have put five on the calendar, but I have this pesky personal life. I'm a bit selfish in insisting that I have time to spend with Chad and time to sleep.

I can't quit doing theatre and occasional commercial auditions or extra work any more than I can quit breathing. I crave the creativity.

That exciting opportunity I blogged about last week? Not so much. I have seen the sausage being made (metaphorically, of course), and I can't stomach it. I don't want that double-edged job.

I must get myself to the sewing machine and finish some projects! Clothing repairs, a picnic quilt and a purse pattern await completion.

Remember when I made that crazy squid for the Fronterfest play I also acted in? No? It was fun. I used floaty noodles from the pool supply store along with poly-fil to stuff the squid for the right combination of structure and squish. Here are photos to jog your memory:

I wish I could work with my hands more -- dreaming up crazy ideas and making them happen.

And then I need to figure out what I'm wearing for my Halloween costume this year. Suggestions?
