I haven’t lost my voice. I’ve been so busy and at the end of the day I’m tired and just want to do nothing. So I sit on the couch and watch TV. We’re living in LA right now, so the kids can have a go at acting and modeling, with the first month almost gone and not a single audition yet I’m really very nervous.
I get the idea that we’ve come to LA a little too soon for fully fledged pilot season but I also feel like we should still have had at least one audition. We’ve been filling our days with trips to Disneyland and visits to the swimming pool ever day. It’s really too cool here in my opinion for the swimming pool but it is heated so I get in with them every now and then. They love it and then I feel like the best mom in the world.
Since I’ve been working a lot less, I really feel like we’ve been spending a lot of time together and really bonding as a family. We miss my husband but with Skype and the phone we talk to him very regularly.
School is going well, the kids are already over half way done with school. I think most people that started school in September are just now taking finals and getting their assessments in the coming weeks. So I’m really proud of how the kids are doing.
I’m also really proud of my kids because they are taking an improve class and really coming out of their shells. The kids are excited about acting again and figuring out how to spontaneously come up with creative ideas. I love it and think of it as an add on to their education. For homework last week they had to write up their own scripts and for a first grader and a second grader I’m really impressed with what they came up with and they performed it in front of their class. Oh to be young and not afraid of getting in front of others and acting totally silly.
I’m really going to try to write more personally because I haven’t lost my voice, I’ve just lost my energy.
