here i am again... alone on christmas.
this is really old.
thankfully, we have Christmas Eve and Christmas Day off but all of my people are much too far away and all of my friends are out of town (even my jewish pals!) so here i sit on Christmas Eve, writing to you and watching MIRACLE ON 34th STREET which always makes me think of my dad...
who is having a little stint in the hospital.
we're hoping he's released tomorrow (christmas day) so the family can celebrate Christmas Eve tomorrow night, etc...
my family is awesome; they had Thanksgiving early for me and will celebrate Christmas late for dad.
so here i am all alone in my new christmas jammies (thank you, m & d) without my puppy, or anybody i love and dreaming of the day when i don't have to do 13 shows in 5 days.
i'm really ready to have a life. a real one. a normal one.
on top of it all, i've come down with the who-plague.... wiped out again.
didn't i JUST have a sinus infection i finally kicked about 4 days ago? i'm thankful it hasn't attacked my voice (yet).
this schedule is just too much.
i'm looking forward to seeing josh, naomi and the littles for Christmas brunch in the am
and la-la and nate for a little les miz in the evening. ..
i'm crazy about a handsome man in utah (who i'll get to hold in my arms for new years eve!!)...
the GRINCH is over in one week (11 performances)- i'm counting down the minutes. this one has been really tough (i'll miss the cast terribly-incredible group of people- but there are so many undesirable things surrounding it).
so to all of you who are surrounded by your family and friends, hold them close and be so grateful!
to those of you who are in my same boat, i feel your pain and my prayers are with you.
this phrase in AWAY IN A MAGER has given me great comfort.
i love thee, Lord Jesus.
look down from the sky
and stay by my cradle till morning is nigh.
i hope you have a very merry Christmas .... i'm asking santa for a snowy Utah Christmas next year!
