{January 8, 2009}   Quick Check In

Hi all, just wanted to check in as it’s been awhile since I’ve really updated you guys on everything. While on the one hand it feels like not much is going on here, there really is a whole lot of that nothing goin’ on lol – loving every minute with Little Tyke still, following with interest as my friend Alex as well as my mom awaits buying and selling houses, looking forward to introducing LT to a whole whack of friends this weekend … I’m also directing a play which has been going well except as winter illness and weather has hit, we haven’t rehearsed as much as we’d have liked. Sigh …

But all is basically well; we’re in good health and good spirits here, and while my grandfather is in the hospital again he seems to be in as good spirits as can be expected as well. We have a healthy, wonderful baby, supportive family and friends and are in a really good place, even though no one thing is really new or brilliant. But really honestly, that’s the best kind of life, isn’t it – nothing too stressful or overwhelming, just generally good and humming along to the tune you want it to. 🙂 I hope everyone else’s 2009 is off to the same start ours is. It’s a fresh year with no mistakes in it yet – let’s all make the most of it! 😀


{January 5, 2009}   Broadway Closures

So it was a bloodbath on Broadway this weekend as 9 shows – including the super-popular “Hairspray”, “Grease” and “Young Frankenstein” – closed. A true sign of the economic times, when theatre – usually such a great escape from our real-life woes – starts taking the hit financially too. Granted, this is a typical time of year for shows to end their run on the Great White Way, and among those nine were shows which were only intended to be seasonal offerings – such as Liza Minelli’s new show and “White Christmas” – were among the closures. But this is still one of the biggest shut downs in B’way memory.

RIP; can’t wait for the revivals. XO

{January 3, 2009}   Happy Birthday S

My friend Alex’s daughter turned 2 this week.
I went to visit her for her birthday yesterday, bearing gifts.
It was a nice time to see friends. 🙂

S was so good with our Little Tyke,
As was Alex and her husband.
Real friends – I appreciate their company.

Happy birthday to your little girl Alex! 🙂 Big hugs.
