beautiful day.

There is so much to say on a day like today. And so much is said by the silences. if you are a follower of the blog, or a friend of mine you know that i have been hoping for and working toward today since even before Mr. Obama announced that he would indeed be a candidate for 2008. I automatically just began typing "Senator Obama" and became elated all over again that "Senator Obama" is now "Mr. President"!

I have so many things I should update about that I think I will do a bulleted list rather than drone on for paragraph upon paragraph and then I will post the pics soon.

  • Keenan threw me a surprise party for my birthday. It was wonderful. Thank-u to those of u who were able to make it. Plus I got some fab gifts!

  • Keenan was honored to accept an honorarium to be a guest presenter and actor at the American Collegiate Theatre Festival's Central Region conference in Lawrence at KU.

  • I got to see Keenan do a reading of the winner of this year's Rosa Parks Playwright's Award (great play)and meet the playwright who is fab.

  • Keeping our fingers crossed that said great play turns into a great job for this spring!

  • Anxiously awaiting Keenan getting home from Lawrence and watching the season premiere of LOST.

  • Tons of meetings this week at work and working on a proposal to start doing some drama therapy for young children w/ autism! Very exciting.

  • Totally enjoyed my 3 day weekend and think that all weekends should be that long, although I can't decide if I would want to have Friday or Monday off.

  • Saving $ for a trip in late March to NY for a very important audition, as well as a girls' get-away this summer in Texas.
  • Spent some quality time in the hotel hot tub reading the Sookie Stackhouse series. Pure.Guilty.Pleasure.

Omg, how exciting for Keenan! I hope the new play is put into production and that he gets an awesome part....does he have a favorite role? Also keeping my fingers crossed for "Broke-ology!"

Keep us updated on that proposal to work with autistic children...sounds like something that has amazing possibilities! Hope you're having a great week! :)
