The days are flying by so quickly … I can’t believe we’re headed to mid-November already!! I haven’t been able to post because I’m super busy with a NEW PROJECT … and my silly day job gets in the way!! 😉 It doesn’t leave me enough time to CREATE!!
So, what have I been up to??! Well, Annie Belle has always wanted to do a mystery dinner theater type party … and I just never got around to making it a reality … like I never had the time or whatever. And so, since I have a full-time job now, I figured it is a good a time as any to write, direct, plan and cook for a mystery dinner/birthday party tomorrow!!
That’s right: I wrote the whole thing – 4 acts! Annie Belle is having 4 friends over tomorrow night, and I customized each part to each of her friends: a basketball star, an actress, a country girl, a frazzled mom, and chemist/scientist. Drew is being a good sport and has agreed to make an appearance as a detective! I’m playing the part of the housekeeper … in other words, I appear as myself. 😉
It should be a lot of fun (I hope!!). I am sure everything will come together … but considering the fact that it is 12:10 a.m. … and my brain is still in overdrive mode, I have a feeling the big crash will come as soon as this thing is OVER.
That said … I am THANKFUL that Annie Belle has 4 good friends that are willing to come over. This whole adjustment to Arkansas has been a process – but I think the kids are all finally feeling more at home. I was doing ok – until I again am the NEW KID at work … but the folks there are so nice. I know I shouldn’t feel like such an outsider; but it is hard to be “new” all the time – in the midst of people who have seemingly all known each other since forever!! That’s why I miss my military friends – we were ALL the new kids, over and over again.
And so I end this post with a great big thanks to my “old” friends – those from way back in high school and from our Army days and our military community days – who still keep in touch via the world wide web!! With you, I’m not a new kid, I’m an OLD kid (??!). 😉
Speaking of this: old friends from our Germany days (15+ years ago) are spending 2 night WITH MY PARENTS this week! It’s a small world after all. (Their son is planning to go to the Bible college at my parents’ church.) I love how God often networks!
