A better week!

The Earth Day Festival performance went well.  There were a few glitches here and there plus a few things that could have been better but overall I was pleased with how the kids did.  Bob did very well with his conducting for the first time and so did Acer, although he has conducted before.  My anxiety is back to normal now so I am glad about that!  It got very high and I had the worst time trying to sleep!  However, now it is over and we are on to the spring concert material.  Many students have picked out pieces.  It looks like the concert will be in late May or June.  I am fine with that so that is good.  As long as we have one, that is all that matters.

My headaches are getting out of control again.  The back of my head to the front of my head, at night, can be so painful.  Fortunately, it isn't every night like it used to be, but I think my super high anxiety brought them back out of control.  I hope that by this weekend they will be just like normal.  That is my hope anyway.

My sinus infection has finally gotten better!!  Yay!  It lasted about 3 weeks and for the first time in forever, (hey, isn't that a song?? tee he he) I was actually knocked out for 5 days with it.  I had to actually cancel 5 days of lessons!  It was unreal!  I am back to normal sinus wise and happy about that too.  Part of the problem was lightheadedness.  I was so lightheaded that I thought I was going to pass out if I sat up too long.  I am fine now.

Spring has FINALLY sprung here!  Yes, warmer weather!  Hoodie weather!  Short sleeve weather!  Almost summer dress weather.  I love how the flowers grow and the grass turns green!  Just the new growth that comes with spring.  We did have some snow this month but I hope that is over as Friday is May Day.  I appreciate flowers and gardens, I just don't like to work in them at all.  I do not have the knack of growing things like my mother had.  She could just smile at a flower and it would grow.

Well, dinner is now here so I better wrap this up!  Have a great day!

back to blogging and the anxiety filled week ahead

My desktop computer has died.  Yup, it breathed its last breath last month and well, needless to say I have been at my wits end with it.  Everything was up to date on it, pictures, my bank account, my music catalogue, and oh my.  Well, I have this beautiful little laptop that is one year older than the desktop and it still works.  That is what I am currently using.  I am dreading updating the catalogue though because it was up to date on the big one and not this one.  If only it would start up once more so I can copy the catalogue and pictures.  Alas, it won't.

Anyways, that was then, this is now.

My students are going to perform for the big Earth Day festival this weekend and my anxiety is rather high about it.  We have never done this before.  I am excited about it too, but nervous at the same time. We had the last rehearsal yesterday and things went okay.  Nothing spectacular but not horrible either.  Each knows what to work on so I feel that Sunday will go well, it's just that my anxiety is high.  I am working on trying to stay calm and I am doing okay with that so that is good.

Spring is finally here!!  We FINALLY seem to be done with snow.  I am so tired of snow and cold.  I got a sinus infection about a week and a half ago but it is almost gone so that is also good.  I was out for 5 days.  I just couldn't do anything but sleep, including teaching.  Yup, I was that bad.  I think I slept for 5 days straight.  We had rehearsal for one of the days and Bob pretty much ran it for me.  I just couldn't do it.  I couldn't.  I was so dizzy and foggy not to mention I felt horrible.  I am on the mend and boy am I glad about that!

So, other than the Earth Day festival, not to much going on around here.  Peony is doing well.  She is such good company when I have high anxiety.  She really is.  Peony is such a beautiful dog.  I love her so much.

I do hope you are enjoying your spring!!!
