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.
