Here Today, Gone Tomorrow!

Wow! I don't know what it is about me and blogging but every so often I drop out of the blogger world for a few months and don't realize that I've been gone that long.

Here's a quick update on the last couple of months in my life .....

I finished my last play, Terra Nova, and it was such a great experience. Loved, loved, loved it! I start rehearsals tomorrow for another play at Hip Pocket Theatre. I have been wanting to do a show there for quite some time. It's a really cool outdoor theatre with live music before and after each show. I was offered a lead role in another play at another theatre but decided to take a background role as a 1/2 human, 1/2 creature in The Island of Dr. Moreau instead. It's a good way for me to get my foot in the door. It should be fun and no pressure.

My dog, Spegonza, was killed in a random dog attack. That was absolutely heartbreaking. He died in my arms on the way to the vet's office. About a month ago, I started visiting the Humane Society again and got another furry friend. Her name is Stella and she is a Havanese, not a breed I was familiar with, and just the sweetest little girl in the world. When I found her, she was completely matted and had huge wounds around her neck and body. It looked like someone had tied a rope around her and drug her behind a car. She even had gravel imbedded into her ears and skin. The Humane Society workers didn't think anyone would adopt her and were planning to humanely euthanize her. I'm not sure what it was but I fell in love with Stella the minute I saw her. She is now a very spoiled part of our family and is the best of friends with the other stray that I brought home months ago.

My friends and I did our annual beach vacation a couple of weeks ago. My boy didn't go this year so that was a little different. We had a great time, pictures and stories to come.

I guess that's about enough for now. I hope all my blogger friends are still doing well. I'm off to read up on all your happenings now!

Happy Monday!

I was wondering where you'd gone off to!

I want to see pics when you do that Dr. Moreau thing! That sounds like the most fun ever!

Sorry to hear about your dog.. I hate that.. I'd like to see your new one though. I like the Havanese... Cute dogs... It's great that you adopted the supposedly unadoptable.

Sorry to hear about your dog. That was so tragic. Good for you for using the Hunmane Society and saving Stella's life! Maybe you can post a pic sometime.
