Well, before I get to the good stuff, let me tell you a few things about my morning;
I got ready to take Jonni to pre-school to the accompaniment of Erik banging on the piano and belting out Jingle Bells at the very loudest volume he could muster. As I was enjoying this little bit of richness in my life, Jonni comes tripping down the stairs with a pair of shorts and a halter top in her hand. "What's that?", I asked to which she replied that it was her outfit for school that day. I gently explained that it is still to cold for that particular ensemble, to which she riposted "But mom! The sun is out!" However, even though I too am chomping at the bit for shorts weather, I made her switch to jeans and a t-shirt, but only after much assurance that summer's coming soon, I promise.
Okay, and now onto my news!! Well, as you all know, I joined a community choir in January, and our concert is on May 4th. (bonus info; that's my anniversary! six years, baby, and here's hoping for at least an eternity more) What many of you also know, but some don't, is that I actually got up the nerve to try out for a solo. That's right, you read it correctly. A solo. I have never, ever done a solo before, I am far and away too chicken. But I did it! Aaaaaand, I got the results yesterday, *drumroll*, I didn't get it. BUT!!!, before you get to depressed at missing the opportunity to hear my dulcet tones displayed for all to hear, I DID get another part!! I got a part in a quartet! So I didn't totally suck!! I'm am horribly disproportionately excited about this. That means, of course, that if you haven't gotten tickets from me yet (shame, SHAME on you), and you don't have a good excuse (ie you are not pregnant like my gorgeous sister and sister-in-law), then you best get them now, because you do NOT want to miss this one! If you have no way of contacting me, then post a comment, and I will find you! YEEHAW! This is one for books, folks!
