I had planned to update this yesterday when I was looking at my friends page and noticed the arrival of my close friend <b><a [lj2] href="">Kevin Spacey</a></b>. however, the baby started to cry, and that was that.

Yes, you heard correctly. I have given birth to my first child in the last week. she was actually born back on May 13th, and she has been named Makena'lei Gordon Carnahan. I've been in the hospital for a bit and yesterday was the first day I'd been really up and about. This is such an exciting time for me. My first child being brought into the world makes everything seem new again. I see everything through new eyes, hers. She is so precious and beauitful. I know my life is now forever changed by her entrance in it.

The last few weeks have been spent in bed resting up for the big day. Now that is has passed I hope to update more, or as much as being a new mother allows me too anyway.

As we all know the end of Friends was last night. I remember the show. Being on the same network with Mad About you, and even guest starring in an episode in one of the early seasons, I decided to watch. It was very sad to see the show end, but as they all say all good things do to come to an end. The send off the show received was fitting.

As for my own life, things are relatively calm. I'm awaiting the two films that I've got coming out this year to be released. I'm also awaiting the birth of my first child this summer. Yes,everyone, I am going to be a mother. At my age it is quite exciting, and I cannot wait to give borth. I've always wanted a child, and now my dream is coming true. Things have been happening as expected with any pregnancy. I will keep everyone posted on developments as necessary.

Stolen from <b><a [lj2] href="">Jack</a></b>:

Invent a memory of me and post it in the comments. It can be anything you want, so long as it's something that's never happened. Then, of course, post this to your journal and see what people would like to remember of you, only the universe failed to cooperate in making it happen so they had to make it up instead.

So I was watching television earlier, and I came across NBC. It was at a commercial, so I decided to wait for it to come back. The commercial break ended, and I was staring at myself. They were playing Twister. I put the remote down and decided to watch for a just few moments. It is still a surreal experience to watch yourself on screen. It is you, but at the same time it isn't. It is a character you are portraying. It is you in a role. You can watch yourself, and you can wonder about what you are thinking or you can try to remember what your character was feeling. Get back into the role in a sense. Watching after the fact can also let you see the role as an outsider. You can judge yourself, your performance, what you did.

Even after all these years and all the things that I have done I can watch myself with new eyes. I've done the big screen, the small screen and the stage. I began at the tender age of nine, learning about the craft of acting from my father. I've done it all. and I love it all. I've done more theater work in recent years, but I've done some big screen work too. This year I have two projects currently in post production. One is a made for television movie, and the other is movie made for the big screen. Both this will be out in due time.

Thanks to everyone for the welcome. I think I like it here already.
