It's crunch time. In less than one month everything I have been working towards in the year 2006 will be here. My mind is constantly filled to capacity with all that I have to do. Today on the way to school a mom friend said "HI" to me, I think 3 times before I realized that I was walking down the street, taking my daughter to school and that she was saying hi to me. I just looked at her and said: Sorry, ZONING!
Last night we had the first run-through of our Joy to the World Christmas Concert. It is the first one that our church in the Queens area is putting on. I volunteered to be in charge, and it turns out that it is quite a big undertaking! It was so great though to see everything come together. We have two violinists that sound so amazing, a guitar ensemble, and vibraphone. We also have a children and adult chorus and a singer who is soloing with the guitar. Each number after the other brought a different flavor and I got chills several times last night. I hope that all of our hard work is rewarded with a large audience...that would be awesome.
I am waiting to hear about a few holds: Nick Jr. Magazine cover-try with my 18-month-old, and a Levaquin Ad. I have a go-see for Nokia today. Here is the description: I am at an art gallery, I am dressed smart, a word I cannot read in my hand writing, not to dressy. I have no idea what I will end up wearing. I might also be doing a little voice over work this week if everything can get negotiated.
The big exciting event of the week however is happening Wednesday! At 7 AM the doors open for the Nordstrom Half-Yearly Sale. I need to get some shoes and maybe a few other odds and ends for my performance wardrobe, so I am actually planning on getting there around when it opens. Sounds crazy and that's why I love it. It's a radical plan...good thing my baby wakes up at the crack of dawn...
