survived.

i survived the weekend.  yet another marathon, super human, can’t believe that was the weekend ~ weekend.  sang a tour de force concert with the kc chorale.  exhausting high notes ~ bird on a wire ~ and some solos to boot.  i can’t quite put into words how exhausted i feel.  even blogging is hard for me this morning!  can’t. form. a. sentence.

honestly ~ all i do today is teach from 4-7 and i am dreading it.  i have nothing in my brain but mush!

enough complaining.  this year is almost over.  countdown to ITALY: 16 days!!  can that be right?  i’m really looking forward to that flight.  8-10 hours of just sitting there, staring at a movie, reading books about italy, sleeping, LEAVING IT ALL BEHIND.  we’ll miss our home.  we always do.  but we are never going to forget this trip.

i haven’t really been thinking about the HAPPINESS PROJECT for may because only one thing needs to be on the list:  GO TO ITALY. isn’t that enough to make you happy for the rest of your life?  but i guess there’s more to it than that.  here is my list for may…

MAY:  ENJOY YOUR LIFE.

1. get your work done way ahead of time.  no stress.  none.

2. keep your eyes on the prize:  ITALY.

3. keep the house CLEAN.

that’s all i have.  i’m cooking great and healthy food this month, walking when i can, enjoying the weather, enjoying our friends, and hopefully closing up some financial nagging debts.  YIPPEEEEE!!!

and, i finished the armoire!!!!

BEFORE PIC:

AFTER!!!!

and a close up….

and the paint job on the inside…

the blue turned out boring, in my opinion.  that paint only cost me $6 so i’m going to go back and get some hot pink, coral color and do it again.

or cover it in contact paper.  i just want it to be neat on the inside.

thanks for allowing me to geek out on my home renovation projects.  i’m going to take a bunch of pictures of the entire finished apartment and post them.  feels good to show all this hard work off!!
