No Longer MIA

I'm back baby, at least I'm back from tour. It was a fun tour, but I didn't get much rest as I had feared and now I'm at even more of a deficit. Tonight's plan is to have an early dinner and then go home and collapse...that's pretty much the plan for every evening this week. I'll get my work-outs in at lunch and my rest in at home...lol. I know it sounds like a no brainer, but I really have a hard time just stopping and resting my mind & body. I'm seriously running on empty currently and my body is really hungry today...it's burning everything I'm putting in it so that I'm starving every two hours. I truly believe it's compensation for the lack of sleep the bod is getting. So I will feed and water my body good healthy things and hope that I can get through today. Heck I can hardly focus enough to type and I'm fighting a dull headache that wants to take over all mental capacity.

I just have to remember to take one thing at a time. This week is already looking a bit overwhelming in the things to do category. I MUST memorize my new French Aria this week + work on all my music for the upcoming Competition on May 13th + get with the competition accompanist to practice + do the dubbing work for the Jazz singing tomorrow in a movie I was hired for + get in a voice lesson on Friday, a vocal coaching sometime this week and go to an event on Thursday night for my company...all this while trying to eat right, work-out and get 8 hours of sleep. I've just got to get my 8 hours...I really need it.

So there ya go, and I'm going to continue to keep pushing through. I am going to finish the MDC strong as I know you will too.

Have a great day!

I don't know how you do it all! You better go to bed early today, you and Val... :)

I seriously hope you get a good night's sleep tonight and give your mind and body the rest they need!

Take care sweetie,

LOL, Rose makes it sound like we're sleeping together! :-) (JK, I know what she meant!)

Definitely get some good rest. I'm sure you desperately need it and it's going to make it so much easier to get back into the swing if you're rested. I'm taking my own (and Rose's!) advice too, tonight's going to be an early night.

And tomorrow we'll be ready to kick ass and take names! :-)
