hi, my name is lelly, and i'm a former blogger...
[a-hem] [dusts off moniter; wiggles fingers over keyboard...]
things are a bit topsy turvey right now. the hotel is busy, but not as busy as it should be in may and that's got me in a bit of a tizzy as i try to generate revenue, guarantee hours for my staff and reign in expenses. where are the people? are you traveling? more or less than a year ago? two years ago? do you make plans in advance or just wing it when you have a little extra $ to spend? i'm curious.
we have a musical revue opening this weekend, for which i'm covering keyboard 2 and the narration. which means, i should technically have opened my score and written some sort of narration. i've done neither, and it's getting to the point where the actors/muscians/director (named "dad") are going to notice that i'm not, shall we say, "prepared." GULP.
summer is fast approaching and my 9 year old is refusing to go to camp. as in "REFUSING!!!" at least, he's refusing to go to the camp where he's spent the past three summers. there are other options - he could do a week at soccer camp, a week at art camp, a week of swimming lessions. but here's the thing: i still have to coordinate all of that. and pay for it. and make sure he has transportation. this is a lot like WORK, people.
and, we've moved. i didn't want to move. but it is for the best and will hopefully help us save money and there really wasn't any other option. truthfully, i was hoping that the next time i moved i would be leaving the area, checking out a new town, with new opportunities. that i would be moving on my own terms.
but, i'm not doing any of those things. and so please excuse my lack of enthusiasm for packing up our lives and moving three freaking miles and living in the chaos of boxes during the most hectic part of the year...
and, matty, if you're reading this: this week sucks and i will be at rehearsal every night with the humidity and the mosquitos and the music i haven't yet practiced, so no more boxes will get unpacked which means you might not be able to find your good razor or clean socks for awhile, and, by the way, the dog can hop the fence so don't leave him unattended while you are helping jack learn the hoedown throwdown for "Fun" Day and Thursday is our TENTH ANNIVERSARY, so if i happen to forget it in the chaos of our life this week, "Happy Anniversary!"
my dinner last night consisted of rotisserie chicken and three hard pretzles.
i washed it down with a bad domestic beer, tried to catch up on my DVR list, inadvertantly watched the tail end of a horror/werewolf movie and proceeded to freak myself out the rest of the night...
