Attitude Is Everything and Coming Soon To This Blog
After a week of gloomy news concerning my sister-in-law JoEllen, today's doctor visit provided some hope. The doctor was very optimistic about her treatment. It was a positive thing and I could tell it really lifted JoEllen's spirit. JoEllen is off to Oklahoma City for the next three days for follow-up appointments concerning her eye surgery, a friend of hers picked her up tonight from our house, she left with a super positive feeling about what lies ahead. Attitude is everything isn't it? Thank you for your prayers and thoughts during this difficult time.
Despite the extremely tight schedule, I'm feeling really good these days. I'm well below 300 (289 at last weigh day) and this schedule and play commitment has really been an eye opener to me about good time management. How do some people do this kind of schedule year around? Not me, no! As much as I love what I'm doing right now---I look forward to doing less, much less! And sleeping more, much more!
I arrived home from play rehearsal completely exhausted and totally unable to keep my eyes open. So I opted to sleep instead of write. Actually, it wasn't my choice. My body decided for me. We rest now. OK.
It's nearly time to leave for the studio on this Wednesday morning. Chris, if you're reading and you notice the time stamp at the end says 11:59pm, that's only to ensure the proper date shows for that particular day.
Coming soon to this blog: An interview with Irene Anderson, official play photos, my Honest Scrap Award list of ten things you don't know about me, and a powerful piece I'm writing in my head and will soon put on paper and produce. It's a “time traveling” audio interview over the phone with myself at different points throughout my life of morbid obesity. From an overweight kid to a 500 pound adult, I'll go back and talk with the me of past for a revealing look into what brought me to over 500 pounds and kept me from losing the weight over the years. It's a dramatic concept, and potentially powerful—mind opening stuff. If you've ever said “I wish I knew then what I know know,” then you'll totally “get it.”
Thank you for reading. Some of these I'm looking forward to doing real soon, the interview with me will be a little while after this play closes. Goodnight and...
