Today is my mom's birthday! We don't get to see her today, not til next weekend, so bummer. She is the same grandma that my daughter asks to call everyday and whimpers and cries not understanding some people have jobs and can't talk about butterfly wings and strawberries and wearing dresses all day.
My mom is my kids grandma, she has worked hard to make memories for my kids, to treat them to things and teach them about things of which I have no idea. She is doing things Grandmas are supposed to do, and she is great at it.
Ready or not world here I come! I make my actressing debut today!
I can't believe that I am actually doing this but more so that I am actually nervous. I have never been in any kind of acting thing except at the Art Center at The College of Wooster when I was a child and couldn't object, as a little old lady that knitted and rocked in her rocker and said, "Woe is me". I have a tendency to get overcome by nerves and my body kind of revolts. IE fainting three times in two weddings, that's right, twice in one, throwing up the first day of 7th grade, in homeroom. Kids are cool by 7th grade. Needless to say I woke up with (and went to bed with and for the last week have had) some anxiety.
I do feel like there is one person who is sort of already looking out for me though, preemptive calming my fears. Sarah, the make-up gal, told me dirty hair styles better than clean hair. She was talking right to my heart, even if her hair creation will be splattered on the pavement when I realize the camera is on.
