Ok - so I've decided this will help me to vent. As a friend once said "it's cheaper than therapy"!
So. . . Rhonda (my high school friend of over 20 years) cancelled today. She usually comes over for a piano lesson for her and help to teach her kids. I really look forward to it - we lost touch for a while when I was married to the "geek" but am so glad that Geoff just loves her and her family. Just wish she lived closer. Anyway, she has dentist appts all morning (with my brother) and so she just can't make it. And then she is hosting Easter at her home on Sunday and has so much to do. I understand that! I am hosting the annual Whiting Family Easter Picnic here on Saturday. We are going to hide eggs and swim. LOVE having a pool! Hoping for a great tan this summer! :) I am cleaning carpets today so it looks nice. Wish I had all the closet doors painted with new hardware but that will just have to wait. I'm sure it will be fun but a lot of work. It's my month, so I have to provide all the food. With all my family - that's a lot. I think I'm going to order an 8 ft sub from Ned's and do chips, salads and soda. That should be good. Not sure what I'm going to do for dessert. We celebrate everyone's birthdays for the month, and it's mine, Geoff's, my dad's and a couple of grandkids. I'm thinking Brownies. I like chocolate and my dad LOVES brownies with nuts. Geoff wants rice krispie treats - another of my favs. So maybe those too.
Well, I must get back to cleaning my carpets and getting ready for my lunch appt. I am meeting a friend/director who is wanting to talk about a music directing job. YEA! I am hoping this is a new way for me to make some money. I love teaching -but it's faster and easier money, working on a show. And I love it! I thought it would be hard to sit and watch people perform when you want to be up there. BUT .. . there is a sense of satisfaction when you hear them sing what you worked so hard with them on. I am hoping for more work doing this. I have 3 theatres asking for me right now - Hale, Ftn Hills and Desert Foothills. Feeling very good about myself right now!
Well, must get myself ready . . . later!
