Finish Strong…

posted on: Friday, May 24th, 2013

I took a few days off, and the Commander and I travelled home to Chicago to smell the American earth, touch the earth…play in the earth.  It’s always so good to be there.  It’s good to have my little family, in our house, around our things. I’m a little tired – – I get back home and there’s way too much to do (at least so I think). Although my husband has fought the urge to turn our house into a bachelor pad, I still want to run errands, and clean, and do laundry, and see what I can do to make the home feel like we’re there – – even when we’re not! I thought the pollen count was awful in England, but actually it’s nothing compared to Chicago. We were all up coughing and sneezing, and nursing headaches, runny noses and watery eyes. Anyhow, although I’m a tired and still a little (a lot) allergic, I’m energized and ready to head into the home stretch of my time in London.

Kensington my Commander....

Kensington Palace…meet my Commander! Oh the Life…Playing on the lawn of Kensington Palace!

…a little over 10 weeks to go. 

I’m proud of the show we have. I’ve grown incredibly fond of those I work with…and I’ve enjoyed having the great opportunity to perform for each person who has spent those two hours with us, However, I’m really excited to get back home. I’m ready! My sweet husband is incredible, and in the past few months has flown over 25 times to and from London to be with us. I think he will welcome – – and deserves – – us all being on the same patch of earth for a bit….

So, 8 months down…just over 2 to go….

As my mother says (sometimes out loud during my final performance of Aida – – but I digress and that’s another, quite funny story)…

Let’s finish strong!!!
