Okay so the next couple of days are going to be nuts for me.
Thursday: final dress rehearsal for my chorus students for a Friday school assembly (of sorts); performing a holiday concert (on my flute) for a retirement home that evening.
Friday: MS Chorus performs for selected electives assemblies (not really the whole school or the whole grade level but still a performance), attending to watch dress rehearsal of a show I'm playing this weekend (Fri. night)
Saturday: ALL=DAY= REHEARSALS and 2 shows for the Christmas Pageant, a local church performance, this is its 21st year and the final year of this particular production. Arriving at 9am-ish, get home after 10pm. Long day of flute, piccolo and pennywhistle performing.
Sunday: Church AM, lunch, jetting over to the auditorium for the final Sunday show of the DCP, getting home around 6 or 7pm
Monday, I'm going to get a Mani/Pedi (Mom's Christmas present to me!!) and I think she's going with me so we can go on a mini-overnight-vacation down to my townhouse by the Sound ... and to shop where prices are lower!! Still, while I love my mom, she can stress me a little bit when we're shopping together, but I think she is prepared to 'relax' without running through the shopping mall!
Oh, and I saw FI today for the last time until probably next Thursday, when we travel to Clemson to visit with his Family for Christmas. ERRRRG, that makes me a little grumpy... :-/
Anyway, I know that God is going to help me get through this but just thinking about it makes me a little stressed. Trying to pray the stress away... while I still try to find a part-time job. Have several applications pending but no progress just yet, and got a depressing email from the school system about next year's budget cuts and non-renewals of contracts for teachers. I'm one of the last ones hired, and while I'm the only chorus teacher at the school and I'm already part-time, no one is really safe. :-/
July 16, Our Wedding Day, is also International Juggling Day!
