Happy New Year!!

Okay, so I'm a little late with that, but this is my first post of the new year so...

I went to Chicago for the holidays to help my mother move into her new home, and came back tired and run-down. I've been trying to get it together, but keep getting sick. Today a friend of mine who has been in the business for a while (yes, actually working) got on my case about not eating & sleeping properly, so I have decided to start taking better care of myself. Yes, I know it's almost 1AM and my bee-hind is up typing on the computer, but I PROMISE I will stop making this a regular occurrence. I need to be at the top of my game if I expect 2006 to go the way I want it to.

My Milk commercial started airing about 2 weeks ago. I saw it for the first time this past week and I did the happy dance right here in my living room. I just feel so blessed. I also know who's in my corner and who the haters are. That's a-ight. Can't nobody steal my shine! ;o)

Working on some scripts, working on a collaborative project with a group of people whose work I admire, working in production on an awards show, working with another actress who asked me to participate in a scene with her for her audition for The Actors Studio...working, working, working. I'm tired right now and not feeling all that great, but that's my own fault. I can't complain one bit. Thank God for the work. I need to eat my veggies, get to bed at a decent time and (gasp) reacquaint myself with the gym. Ugh. I friggin' HATE cardio!!! I can lift weights until the cows come home, but I HATE cardio, and I know that's what I need. Maybe if I eat enough vegetables, I can bypass the cardio? I really don't mind my size 12 butt--heck, where I come from I'm normal (not like this size-2 Hollywood business), but I want to be healthy. I don't want all those "diseases of the fork" that my family is prone to have: diabetes, high blood pressure, obesity, etc. None for me thanks. Can you believe I have a treadmill in my apartment?? Haven't been on it since, like, October. Cryin' shame.

Okay, off to bed I go. Ciao.
