It has been a month since my last post.

The house hold is on a more even keel now that we have a
few weeks distance from the loss of our pup. I have gradually
been putting things away while steeling myself for the burial
of her ashes. I did have a good long cry today when I threw
out he remaining puppy food. It was cathartic. But in all other
aspects we are doing pretty well.

It is the annual forced march known as Christmas Carol.
We have been at it since Nov 20th. There are 5 matinees this
week and next , as well as 3 night shows. The cast and crew is gamely
trudging along. But it continues to be as crazy as ever.

This year we have a little added insanity. A very well known television icon
Is doing a yet another "World Premiere" in our black box theatre.
Don't get me wrong , I've worked with countless people that you have seen on TV.
But that doesn't make it any less surreal to she her strolling in the halls in the midst
of our Victorian garbed cast. I will say one thing, this is the only time in our history
that we have installed a tele prompter for the use of the talent. But the cash that this show generates is a necessity. We do what we must.

I do have lots to be grateful for. But I am still sort of looking forward to January.

I have been very busy during my 5 weeks off.

The puppy has grown apace. She is now weighs about 25 pounds.
We are about 2 to 3 weeks out from complete house breaking. She had her very
first bath today. And she and Betsy are romping around like old buddies.

See how cute? )

I passed my latest mammogram with flying colors. So there will be no
exploratory surgery , thank the gods!

I have completely repainted the living and dining room. In between puppy
watching , wall repairing and the traveling husband it took me a whole week.
But it looks great if I may say so myself.

Spring has struck here so that meant the switch out of seasonal clothing,
which always leads of the annual cleaning out of the basement. And that
always leads to the spring cleaning of the rest of the house. So I feel
exhausted but virtuous at the state of the house this week.

We also are making good progress on the BSG uniforms. The pants are done
except the belt loops and the shirt / jackets are shaping up very nicely.
Here is a picture to show our progress.

pretty! )

I have been watching Life on Mars, BSG ( don't even get me started on that one ) ,
The Dresden Files, Supernatural and the somewhat campy but enjoyable Blood Ties.

I'm going to miss real life when I go back to work on Tuesday.

I'm leaving the country again. I and R are leaving
for the UK tomorrow . We will be spending our usual
week there. But this time we be traveling to other
cities. I will be standing on the beach at Brighton
next Friday ! It will be wet and chilly and I can't wait.
He is tasked with the picture taking this trip so I
stand a good chance of getting some good ones.

We are sending the pup to stay with friends.
They have a dog as well so this will give her back some
quality dog play that she has been missing out on.
It's pretty amusing to pack a bag for yourself and
your dog .

I am mostly ready . The only potential task of doom is
the programing of the DVR. I know I will miss something .
But I do get to watch the Beeb for a few days. It should
produce something of interest. And I am SO going to raid
Forbidden Planet.

Cheers !
