Stress? Today?

It shouldn’t be happening, but it is. It’s just a short gig at the nursing home.¬†Stop stressing, fuh cryin’ out loud.

I guess it’s just the nature of the thing. Will everyone be at school today? Will everyone remember to dress appropriately? Where’s my music from the Christmas concert? Why didn’t I get that taken care of yesterday, while I was in my room, getting a list of spring music together from JW Pepper? Who’s my sub? Will my 7th & 8th graders give him/her a hard time? Will I have to get nasty right before Christmas break? Why didn’t I get that extra music ready for my first period rehearsal? Why didn’t I stop at the ATM on the way from school yesterday?

Nuts. All stuff I really can’t control from my parlor, so why torture myself? ‘Cuz thass what I do.

Ah well. All will work out………….or not. But hey, it’s Tunesday, which means one day closer to Thursday. YAY :-)

How’s your Christmas week shaping up, fiends? Share a little comment love and tell the Fink all about it.

    You and me both, babe! I stress allatime about things I really shouldn’t. I hope the Nursing Home gig went well — doesn’t matter WHAT the kids do, the folks there love it!

      They did love it, Suz. Appreciated it very much! It’s good for the kids to do things like this. Nothing “in it” for them, except just knowing that they blessed someone today. They filtered out through the crowd afterwards, greeting folks and shaking hands. It was nice to see.

    What songs did you pick for High School???? Oh by the way, the cake truffles from yesterday were AMAZING…. I had the vanilla with chocolate chips….

      Thanks, Hannah! Glad you enjoyed them. (I liked the chocolate chip ones myself.)

      I have the list of stuff at school — I know I picked a Les Mis√©rables medley, among other things. I’ll tell you today.

    Christmas is shaping up pretty well–so far! Decorating the church tomorrow, final choir rehearsal for 2011. Then kick back and relax–oh wait a minute, I’ve been doing that!! Love the questions–here’s some more:
    Do you know the McAllisters are going to France?
    Do you think they’ll have snow is Paris?
    Does this van get good gas mileage?

    “Geez, I dunno, kid!”
