Powerless Month


A few weeks ago, I dubbed April Power Month.

I planned out blog posts for the entire month. I scheduled auditions. I concocted strategies for other projects, too. I had all of April laid out in front of me, and I was ready.

None of that happened.

For the past three weeks, our sweet little dog, Izzy, has been in and out of the veterinary hospital. For the majority of that time, no one could tell us what was wrong with her or why she wasn’t responding to medication. I thought April would be all about exerting my own power, but instead I felt entirely powerless. I couldn’t help her, and for awhile it seemed bleak that anyone else could, either.

Thankfully, Izzy is stable now and back at home. We’re waiting for her test results to come back and we’re all trying to rest.

I’m not sure when my next blog post will be. I’m hopeful that we’re returning to happy and healthy. When we do, I’ll return to rule breaking, too.
