Surviving

So I'm still just surviving...holding on to anything I can to just make it to the end of Opera season. I've only got one more work event with my Opera Company and then I'm "off" for the summer. I'm just taking it one day at a time and hoping to get enough rest so I don't completely break down. Currently I'm typing this through a fog due to lack of sleep and allergic eyes. That reminds me, on Wednesday I was half blind due to something in my eye that I just couldn't find or flush out, you know, like a piece of lint or something...it about drove me bonkers, almost to the point of pulling every eyelash out of me eye...however vanity and love for my long lashes kept me from doing such a thing, so I just suffered through until it worked itself out...which it eventually did, about 8 hours later...argh!

Nothing really to report...today is the day we find out if we made the finals for the Jensen Competition, but like I said, I'm not holding my breath.

This weekend is full of fun and busy events...I have a voice lesson with a fabulous Russian Soprano, followed by a friends dance performance, followed by going to see The Ballad of Baby Doe at Chelsea Opera (my friend Carmine is conducting and my friend Lynne is performing). Then we'll probably go out afterwards and I'll end up crashing at her place so that I can be up bright and early to make the dress rehearsal at Dicapo for the children's show that goes up next week. Whew...and I turned down yet another gracious invitation to go to Cannes to see the premier of the movie I was in and sang for. Darn expensive airline tickets...oh well, I have to work anyways.

So that's it, I'll keep you updated if anything new and interesting happens.

Have a GREAT Weekend...YAY!
