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!!!!
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!!
