Yeesh, where’d the week go?

It’s Finkday already. ┬íNo lo creo! Time’s flying by (and getting tougher than tough…). School year weeks never go this fast, ya know? Anyway, let the flipouts begin.

I laid some “haven’t” science on myself this morning:

  1. Haven’t updated choir tour accounts and details yet.
  2. Haven’t given a single thought to the upcoming Joomla training session, or the wholesale changes that come afterward.
  3. Haven’t done *any* score study or choreography or transpositions for Bye Bye Birdie. Nice.
  4. Haven’t any players for the orchestra yet; don’t even know what kind of pit I want.
  5. Haven’t yet bought the eleventy-thousand-dollar textbook I need for the last class I will ever take in my lifetime.
  6. Haven’t begged the Thriller to get the garden roto-tilled.
  7. Haven’t cleaned those last two closets.
  8. Haven’t seen this much fur come off a dog in one brushing session, ever. Could have made a small sheep out of it. The photos don’t do it justice, honestly; it was all over the yard, just flyin like an eagle till it was free.

However, I also….

  1. Haven’t had this much fun in one summer (with one bad spell, albeit brief) in forever.
  2. Haven’t enjoyed my family and friends this much in a long time.
  3. Haven’t “grown” as much professionally in the last five years as I have over the last few months.

Hmm. Does this have anything to do with turning forty in a couple-a weeks? Not sure I can take all this self-realization and huggery. Cloying.

All right, off to the showers. Meeting my good fiend Stoney at 10:00 for our annual cutting-the-score-to-ribbons session. Me likey.

    Fourty? Clearly all the dog hair flying around the room caused your fingers to slip on the keyboard & mis-type that milestone birthday figure looming in the distance. Take it from me, hitting THIS one is gonna be a walk in the park!

    Nice song quotes, too… “porkchop” – still my alltime favorite RFboid tune, I must admit.

    Happy TGIF darlin’ :-)

    So, when is Birdie? Trying to plan ahead since I’m oddly curious/nostalgic.

    BTW, if you don’t notice a comment for two weeks, its because I’ll be in Montana visiting my mom and dad but I look forward to reading when I get back.

    I could add a couple of haven’ts, but I’ll just add this one — you haven’t checked your birth certificate lately for the year of your birth :-) 40? Hmmmm! On second thought, I like your system — that would make me about 53.

    Well, you’ll always be 29 to me, my darling. Be glad it’s Rousseau losing all that hair and not you!

    How much do I love you!!!!!
