24 August 2009


So, I took a vacation. From cleaning my apartment.  Cooking.  And updating our blog.  

My vacation is over, and my apartment is a mess.  

I got a freelance translating job for a guy who found a rare rosary for his sister.  He found out it came from a Carthusian monastery in Spain and has beads made of rose petals.  He was sent documents in Spanish about the making of the rosary, etc., thus I am now education with the Carthusian Order of Zaragoza, Spain.  It was a really neat job and a reminder I'm really glad I know Spanish.  

John's softball team won 2nd place in the Ft. Bragg league.  He spent a week out in the field, but asked permission from his commander to come back and play in the championship.  So close!  He still got a huge trophy and the unofficial MVP award.  

It was time for me to sing again, so I heard about 2 local competitions and auditioned.  I got to the finals of one and lost the final night:(, but it was a lot of fun to get on stage and sing again.  I'm addicted!  I am still in the other competition, which will last 2 more weeks.  The winner of this one, "Operation Rising Star," wins $500 and the opp to go to the nationals.  The overall winner gets an $18,000 studio experience and a demo cd.  It's fun to think about even though I probably won't make it that far.  

School starts tomorrow.  I'm not as ready as I'd like to be, but thankfully I don't have students until Wednesday.  It is hard to believe this is my 4th year of teaching.  

Hope all is well whoever, wherever is reading this.  Thanks for taking time.
