I try to be on stage at least once a week, but I’ve managed only twice since my last post almost three weeks ago. (Although I did film a video for the “Care For Flair” campaign – http://carefornicflair.wix.com/donate)
Yes, I have a few distractions – We expected my husband’s job would be ending by Labor Day, so we planned to start a major home renovation project. Then we found out I’d have more time to help him – in my last post, I mentioned that I was laid off from my IT job. I’m now realizing that my layoff has affected my mood a bit more than I thought and we’re now seeing that the kitchen renovation is going to be a bigger job than we thought.
But awareness is the first step of change. I won’t be able to get any stage time this week, but I will do at least one open mic before my next show on September 13. My goal is to be back to one or more times on stage per week by the end of the month.
And somewhere in the middle of that, I’ll be looking for a new day job – because comedy isn’t going to pay the bills just yet.
