January is begining to get busy

Our quiet time is gone and we are beginning to get busy again.

Tiger Lily is a huge Baltimore Ravens fan and I lost a bet last weekend so I'm now feeding the dog every night this week. I'm happy to see her finally enjoying football, I remember watching the Dallas Cowboys with my father when I was her age and she was lucky enough to have the time last weekend to do the same with her father. We will be watching the game this weekend, please don't call if they lose I will be consoling a devastated 10 year old. Of course, then she has to do the dishes for a week....

Tiger Lily has been asked by her acting class teacher to audition for a play at the Montgomery Playhouse and she is over the moon. Although I do not see a future Hannah Montana here (please no, I would never wish such a life on a child) I know of several people who truly enjoy acting and it is something she can do for the rest of her life. I hope she gets a part for all the obvious reasons and if she doesn't we will consider trying again. For those of you that know her, she is not afraid of failure which is an important trait for anyone to be successful.

My life, well, my goals for the month of January are funny, work related and simple. I want to learn how to walk gracefully in 4 inch stilettos (Tiger Lily suggested the shoes when we were shopping and I never realized how hard they are to walk in)--that's my funny one. I also want to finish up at least one manuscript at work--I have 3 on my desk and am getting nowhere so I'm going to focus on one and leave the other 2. My simple one is to sign up for a yoga class. At the end of the month I'll let you know whether I actually accomplished the walking part. I guess if I don't have any trips to the emergency room I'll be successful...

We have a busy weekend ahead of us and I will enjoy having Monday and Tuesday off to finish up all the things around the house that I have been putting off. As I said before, we have company coming and will have a good time as well.

It would be interesting to see you in stilettos. I also noticed you dress beautifully now (you always were a good dresser, but now you are turning heads). I hope this is the sign that the wound is healing. You go girl!
