I really should be asleep...

since I have to meet my Pilates trainer at 9AM, not to mention that they are turning off the water in my building from 9A-5P (something wrong with the pipes), so I have to get up way earlier than usual and make sure I've washed everything that will need washing before I leave home the FIRST time because I won't be able to come back and do it later.

I got home from a workshop with casting director Twinkie Byrd around 10:45PM, talked to my mother (on the phone) for a while, and started reading e-mails from family and friends who are 'consoling' me after my un-booking. Some are funny, some were hopeful, and a few were sad. All were supportive, and I appreciate that. I'm really in a good place right now and realize how blessed I am to have support from people who know me and love me anyway (no easy feat sometimes). This is just part of the journey. All of the cliches that I have heard apply right now: "it's a marathon, not a sprint", "what's really yours, nobody can take", "when God closes a door, He opens a window"... take your pick, they're all true. (Cliches become "cliche" for a reason.) I do love my life right now. It's not perfect, but it's mine, and I intend to ride it until the wheels fall off.

Okay, gonna wash my face and go to bed.

Stay tuned...

P.S.--Yes, I know the word "cliche" should have an accent over the "e", but whenever I type accents on blogger, they turn into strange symbols.

I like funny and unusual comments. What you said about loving your life and riding it until the wheels fall off really did it for me.

Keep the faith!
