My Absence: Explained & Extended

As you may or may not have noticed I have practically fallen off of the face of the blogosphere this past week….and that is going to be the case for the next 2 weeks…. : ( Here’s why…..

As some of you may know, I’m starring as a tree in the wizard of Oz play at my local community theatre! I’m also 5 other characters…as I think I’ve mentioned…. I’ll be singing and dancing and reciting lines! 🙂 I am having SO MUCH FUN! I’m making new friends, and since I have rehearsal 3 times a week, I see them often! 😀 That being said…. Tech week starts Thursday….that means 4 hours rehearsal’s every day of the week besides Sunday! :O Imma be busy, busy, busy!


Last night was my last karate class for the season since I have rehearsal the next 2 classes….I’m still debating if I want to continue with karate….some weeks it was SO MUCH FUN….and then the next wasn’t as fun….See, our Dojo is “special” We have SO many black belts so we almost always get one-on-one with them. That’s awesome! But they all have different opinions on how things should be done….so one week I’m taught by person A and he teaches me a technique, next week, I’m taught by person B and he thinks the way person A taught me is wrong….so he changes it on me 😛 they warn us that this will happen….and say just pick what works for you…but I don’t get a choice of “what works for me” since I’m only a white belt. 😀 OK….enough complaining…. Overall my experience with Karate was a TON of fun, one of the black belts has taken my siblings and I under his wing as though we were his children, or grandchildren, I really like/liked working with him, and if he alone could be my teacher I would be happy 🙂

My Nana had hip replacement surgery after 9 years of pain (She broke her hip 9 years ago and has had screws put in, taken out and now replacement)  I’ve been helping where I can, spending the night so I can give my Papa a break. 😛

So I’m going to take a break from posting (unless I have time to write up a post) for the next 2 weeks so I can focus on school, theatre and family….but afterwards I’ll be back up and running! 🙂

Also…I’m having a big sale in my Etsy shop! Everything is marked down $5, and with the coupon code SHIP15 you get free shipping! DON’T FORGET! If there is something that you want, but don’t see available, I specialize in custom crochet! Request a custom order! 🙂 I’d love to make exactly what you’re looking for!

I know this was quite different from most of my posts….but sometimes I feel like posting a life update 😀 Hope you don’t mind!

What has kept you busy, busy, busy this week? Share in the comments! ❤

Thanks for stopping, and reading!

    • Yes! Sometimes I wish there wasn’t such a holiday rush….but It’s actually not Christmas that has been keeping me busy, but my play! I haven’t really focused on Christmas other than a few gifts I’ve bought….I’ll probably be running like a mad woman the week of Christmas! XD But yes, I’ve been enjoying this past month thought I’ve been busy, busy, busy! 😛 Thanks for stopping!! ❤

  2. I totally understand!!! Plays this time of year are the craziest!!! And you will be lucky to be able to rest/sleep with school work and play rehearsal. I cannot wait to read your new posts but don’t come back before you are ready, I would rather wait another week than to have you burn yourself out. =D. Have a wonderful Christmas, enjoy the last few weeks of your play, help out your family and let yourself have a little break. 😉 We’ll all be here once you get back!!! I hope your grandmother is feeling better. Have a wonderful holiday!!! Merry Christmas!!!!!! ❤

    • I know right?! I’m busy every day! Its hard but I’m loving it too 🙂 I’m hoping to get some good posts up once I get back! Hopefully then I’ll be refreshed and my creative juices will flow easier! 😀 Thank you so much! Have a merry Christmas myself! I think my family is taking it slow this year, only going to my Grandparents on Christmas Eve and staying home (having company) on Christmas day! (I love when holidays aren’t rushed) She’s feeling better already! (my Grandma) She says this has been a great week and she’s hoping to be up and out of the house next week! Merry Christmas Allie! ❤ Thanks for stopping, dear. 🙂

  3. I completely understand what you’re going through right now! But, you have been nominated for the Infinity Dreams Blog Award! You can do it whenever you have the time, I’m just letting you know now. 🙂 Merry Christmas!
