Well not really, but I am free of the Nutcracker for about 48 hours! Exhausted, and happy it is over. I actually slept really well last night and went to bed about 11. Now I get to deal with a torn up house and a really torn up studio. But I don't even care. I feel free and I can do what I want when I want. (We all so know that that isn't true, but let me dream my fantasy for a little while)
Okay that is over. I have a few hours today to get some housework done before I have to meet with the theater President to go over books, which we will do at 3'oclock, then daughter and I are going to help decorate the stage for a Christmas concert that will be held next weekend for a charity organization. They are desperate and behind on oleo acts and even though we cannot help with the onstage performances as we will be out of town at a wedding, we can get them up and running, by doing all the things they need to get the show off the ground. It is our Christmas act of charity (or stupidity I haven't figured it out yet)
The mom that owed me money paid me $400.00 so I was able to pay my house payment. God is good and I consider this a true miracle and blessing. Money I was going to have to scramble to get just appeared when I needed it and I am grateful.
It was so fun to be with our grandson and daughter this weekend. We bought him a police car that makes all sorts of sounds and he was thrilled. He loved the Nutcracker and stayed awake until the coda at the very end.
I have not really thought at all about Christmas, and I need to get busy and get a few things done in that respect. But right now, today, I am going to enjoy the fact that I have a big load gone out of my schedule and just be happy about my life, I am blessed and I am a blessing to others. I have a dirty house, but it is mine and it is beautiful. I have a very sick demanding mother upstairs, but I also have the love of my family who are a great support to me. I am in debt, but I have paid my bills up through today. Today, just for today I am okay and deserve to be happy. Problems will come, things will go wrong, but I deserve to be happy.
Out My Window: Oh my goodness I need to go check on my chickens!
Have a great and productive day!
