Still Alive

I know I've been MIA for a week, but things are still crazy (as usual). I'm just cramming to learn my new opera role by the end of June so I can start learning whatever roles I'm assigned for next year's season at Dicapo. I think I will always be learning opera roles...the process never seems to stop. I'm an eternal student, but I don't mind, it keeps me young and interested. It also keeps me tired and a bit stressed, but that's how life is in general...that's why people take vacation. Ahhh, vacation. How that is a nice concept, for other people it seems. Maybe someday I can take the time to get away and relax for a week or so, but I don't see that happening anytime soon.

On a positive note: Everyone's now moved and settled in their new "homes" and it's been a full week since the bf left for South Africa. The last I had heard from him was his landing in Cape Town South Africa and then it was off to Safari. I'm assuming that's where he is now, especially with no emails or text messages coming my way. I was invited to go, but besides not having the luxury of time off and money, I'm not much of a "roughing-it" kind of girl. Sure I grew up in a small town in Texas, almost the country (Lord knows we all has acres of land)...but the first time I have to pee outside, it's all over. And they were backpacking it too...NO WAY! Yeah, unless it's a Luxury Safari where their are running, clean showers and a place to plug in my hot rollers, I'm not interested! Wow, when did I become such High Maintenance?

Other than that, I'm just trying to diet and exercise while juggling all the new music I have to learn. Unfortunately tonight, I'm going to an event that is at a Beer Garden. Yeah, beer...the beverage of large bellies and empty calories. I guess I can just sip one all night and look like I'm participating. And who knows what the food offerings will be like. Oh well, I'll just have to pre-eat!

Have a great weekend!

Glad you're back, darlin', I've been wondering where you were! Though I figured you were probably extreemely busy, knowing you. :-)

I don't think I'd make it on a safari either. I actually like to camp but typically we camp somewhere fairly close to the restrooms. :-) You know, with the showers?

Glad everyone's getting settled in though. And yeah, we're definitely going to have to look into that vacation concept some day, I hear it's really neat!

Eww, peeing outside lol... High Maintenance is the only way to be (in my opinion lol).

You're always so busy, I don't know how you do it! I bet you would be bored after two days of vacation anyway lol.

Have a great wknd, and good luck at 'Beer Garden'!!!!
