I'm Baaaaaaaaacckkk!!!!!!!!

So friends I am back after my long hiatus.

After my Aunt died things got really busy. With family stuff. Then with work stuff. Then I went to teach/be a counselor at a camp for kids 7-17 for acting. I taught auditioning technique. There were so many rewarding moments at camp and a couple that pushed me to the edge. Then the drama of the wedding from hell last year continued when the bride posted lies about my mother, her business, and I on her blog. She said I was paid to work the wedding which is false. 1) Never would I do that, 2) Never would my mother do that, 3) There are records to prove that this is so false, 4) I only helped my mom at that wedding because she was balling her eyes out in the kitchen because stipulations that were agreed upon for the wedding contract were completely violated. I'm still trying to figure out how to tell her how hurt my mother is by that and now this blog entry and let her know that my mom is watching for more slander to see if she needs to speak with a lawyer for defamation of character and slander about her business. My mom was so broken hearted (all over again) about this. Which was just more stress during camp week.

Despite the drama/stress there was fun though. Those kids just reminded me all over again how much I love what I do. And they were so talented and I was so proud of all the hard work they put in and how much they all learned. Plus my fellow counselors were such amazing people! I am so glad I met them and all those kids too!! It was very rewarding. I am SO exhausted though!! I napped yesterday for 5 hours and slept in until 1:30pm today just trying to recuperate! Long week of kids and long training before that. 10 days of running around and not a lot of sleep or vegan friendly food! I got sick one day (on our field trip day to be exact) from eating rice with butter in it (unbeknownst to me) and spent the day vomiting. Not the best day but it all turned out okay when my fellow counselor took me to the nearest Ralph's for pedialyte and pepto bismol. I was much better the next day. I am sure that this week will be pretty busy too. Coming back after 10 days leave is a lot of work to catch up on.

Hope all goes well this week for me and all of you! I finally caught up on all the blogs today, boy there was a lot going on while I was gone! Hope everyone's 4th has been amazing!!! Mine has been very relaxing, loads of sleep and hanging out catching up on blogs and HBO shows I missed on my DVR. It feels good to be back in my own bed that's for sure!! Hope to post pics soon! :D
