Posted:So, I haven't been on here much since that "invasion". I check but not post lots.

Alot has been going on, some of which I would like to share for those interested...mainly because I know that for many there is this lifelong desire to find "balance" in your life.
Now, for daily life, that is a struggle for me, to be sure.
However, overall, I think it balances itself out with some work and direction.

Several people in my life have been battling cancer. PWB has a small cancerous growth that was diagnosed this week. Luckily it is easy to deal with but we did the necessary freak out because it is the "c" word.
It's been crazy. And all of them were people in the same area, so it made me wonder what the hell was in the water where they grew up??

And yet it is balanced out by the fact that I now have the job of my dreams. I am the event coordinator and entertainment producer/director for the second largest venue in my area. It's cool. It's a castle. I love it.
I get to write, direct, perform and produce every show I ever wanted to, and then some. I get to see concerts, shows and sporting events that I am not in charge of for free.
The next year is *hectic* but amazing. I have worked my whole life for this job, really. It has taken so many years of getting to this point...so please...wish me luck that it works out!!! ubbrollsmile


And isn't it odd how it all balances out in the end?

I'm not balancing my health very well at the moment which is bad but that is far out weighed by the fact that I have THE most gorgeous man in the World telling me that he loves me. It doesn't get much better than that.

Posted:Good on you Pele.

It's great that PWB took that little lump seriously enough to get it checked out. I've yet to convince mine that home surgery involving the liquid nitrogen from work ain't the best solution to keratinoma (seriously!).


There is a slight possibility that I am not actually right all of the time.

Posted:Probably not.

It took me a year to get him to go though, and color change within it.

And you know...I need to say this.

But let me put a disclaimer on it...I am not complaining or bitching in anyway.
However...there is that saying "When one door closes, another opens."

Not entirely true here...it is more like a castle gate (since the building I am the ED for is a castle), two windows and a complex.

Not only did this job fall into my lap (well, not really, I worked and pushed for it but then it exploded as all good things in my lap should! wink ).
However, two seperate fellow performers that I have been working with off and on for years now want to make pushes into larger working collaberations. Seperately and on projects that can't be combined.

I also just got a 6 week contract for a local gig that has been trying to hire me for 5 years, with awesome pay.

So..... eek

I must have done something right, ya think?
And I don't want to have to decide.

And I am making myself ill over it (and well, working a festie this past weekend and not drinking any water at all during it).

I'm trying to figure out a way to do them all.
Whatcha think?
Is it possible?

Your mouth to the powers that be ears!!!!

Looking back it is odd how negative things all lump together, and positive things all lump together as well. In my life, at least, it very rarely is scattered.
If that makes sense.

Anyone else find this as well?
