I am once again a smartphone owner!
Hubby bought the Nexus 6 and gave me his Nexus 5.
The 6 is HUGE! It's like a tablet! We just got it on Monday, so he's still getting used to it.
Meanwhile, I'm keeping my 5 away from any water sources.
My mom is in town this week, so the kids are able to do some swimming at her hotel. It's been busy, as usual, around these parts. I had my annual OB-GYN appointment last week (I'm officially in early perimenopause; holy cow!), followed the next day by my minor eye surgery. It was quick and painless, and it's nearly healed. It's so nice to look at my eye in the mirror and not see a giant THINGY on the corner of it. For the first time in 5 years. It's a bit tender, and I looked for a while like I'd gone a few rounds with some ninjas, but that'll pass.
I've been doing quite a lot of barre workouts. Mostly Bar Method. Combining that with Essentrics/Classical Stretch, both of which feel really good! And a bit of yoga. Can't afford any classes right now, so I do it all at home.
Within the next few weeks, hopefully, I'll also be getting new headshots. Which I will then send out hither and yon and, with luck, start auditioning again. I need to get my face out there. See, I've never been the kind of actor who walks into a room and casting directors sit up and take notice. It's always been my work that's gotten me other work. But auditioning is a necessity. I think (and have been told) that I audition WELL, I'm just not easily typeable. People aren't always sure what to do with me. :) I figure if I can get interest, someone, somewhere, at some point will cast me, and then I can start becoming a known entity.
We're also doing an improv performance in a couple of weeks. Nothing formal, just friends and family, but it'll be good to get in front of an audience. It's a such a great group that we have. Lots of talent there. And, of course, a much-needed outlet, lol!
Alright, it's getting late. Gonna watch "Broadchurch" and then go to bed.
