Can't live without wanting to shoot them in the face on occasion...family.
It's been another holiday weekend for the books.
If you decided to become a parent (biologically or through marriage), in effect you have decided to love that child unconditionally. To protect, to support, to educate, to talk to, to understand even if you don't agree, to accept being tested, to know them, to remind yourself daily that you chose this...the hardest job in the world.
I've always wanted kids, still do - at least one anyway, but with age I find myself more and more terrified of the idea. I can't become a parent until I'm ready. I've heard people say "you're never really ready" well then I won't be having them for a while.
Anyway, this Tuesday with Tassels is extra emotional. My older and sometimes wiser brother (Georgie Porgie) has set off for his Costa Rican adventure! He has never done anything like this and I couldn't be happier. In fact, I find myself crying because A- I'm filled with worry obvi. B- He's so far away. and C- I wish I had the courage to just go. I'm so proud of him and excited for what the next -at least - 2 1/2 months bring him. Perhaps he'll stay longer and then I'll definitely go visit!!
UGH!! You can see this post was on delay. My stupid computer was fudging up so I never was able to post it last week as scheduled..whatevs, I'm here now!!
This week is jam packed. in between long & busy work days I've been squeezing in rehearsal & costuming for Take Back the 80s Burlesque show at Parkside Lounge!! This Friday, I'm doing a new act, which is really holding my interest as a regular piece. I've been listening to Prince non-stop....just sayin.
THursday night I'll be playing the boozy guest hostess at the Metropolitan Room again for the amazing singer/song writer/"NY's Pop Poet" (and my bff) Angelo's show: Notorious P.O.P. A pop cabaret filled with crazy talent! All proceeds will benefit the Trinity Place Shelter. Last month I was in tears by the end. Come check it out, make sure to reserve your tickets ahead of time!!
Ok I'm off to relax & rhinestone!! I'm exhausted & my feet hurt like heck!
Love you guys, thanks for holding out for a week :)
Ciao for now,
