Four more days!

Surgery date moved up to Tuesday, Jan 25th. Yikes! A little anxious, a little nervous, and whole lot relieved it will be over sooner. Thanks for all your soothing comments. I'll be back when I get out of the hospital. It's supposed to just be three days. They suggested that I don't bring my laptop due to the fact that I will be out of it most of the time and it could get stolen. Lots of emotions are going through my head these last few days. Can't wait to be back on my feet without pain. For all of you out there with constant or chronic pain. I feel for you. I will now think twice about someone when they aren't very nice. They may be in Pain. I thank god that my pain will be gone. Pain does not look pretty. It's also very hard to stay focused. Ok, Cyberland, I'll be back!

Fort Myers Film Festival

These days you can find me hobnobbing at Intellectualization Mondays. What is that you may ask? Well every Monday night the New Fort Myers Film Festival hosts a night of short film screenings. It is a fun event with music, cocktails and venders selling tasty treats. Tonight one of my students will be singing. I can't wait to hear her. She is a very talented young lady. A couple of weeks ago I was a celebrity Judge. Unfortunately some of the films are really really bad. I am also a submission coordinator that screens and judges the films as they come in. I have watched many many films in the last couple of months. Just watched six last week and only two of them are worth screening. Although on Intellectualization Mondays they like to screen the bad ones also, just to get a rouse out of the audience. The audience members also get to critique the films they watch. The microphone gets passed around. All in all, it's a fun night and I'm looking forward to future screenings. The actual Film Festival will be in March. The deadline for submissions is the end of this month. January. Anyone out there interested in submitting please do so at without-a-box or go to the website

Now that the holidays are over, everyone is getting back to work and making changes for the new year. Me too! First off, I have to have hip replacement surgery and I am currently waiting on the date. I am hoping to know next week. With a new hip, I am vouching to get back into tip top shape. Much unneeded poundage that needs to be shed. Depending on recovery time, I am hoping to get back to teaching and coaching, sometime next month. Although, it may be March. We'll see. I am so looking forward to walking the pristine beach I currently reside on. I have a homemade hula hoop that is also awaiting my recovery. Not to mention the new Jane Fonda workouts that I am dying to try. Secondly, I am hoping to see the finished product of the film I directed, "The Secret Lives of Karaoke Junkies". Hoping to make the Fort Myers Film Festival deadline the end of this month. Hopefully it will be a good year for us all. The best to all of you in Cyberland. Have a great year!

Found out on Monday, surgery date is February 1rst. Should be up and running in March. Gotta Dance!
