I was going to begin our “Choose Your Own Adventure” story today, but decided to postpone it so that I could do our project justice. (Yes, based on all the feedback and support you guys have given me, I’ve begun to think of it as OURS).
Not only is today my writer’s association meeting, I’ve also been battling a 2 plus day migraine. Today has been the first day I haven’t felt like falling to my knees and weeping like a baby, so I got a few things done around the house. In a little more than a week I’ll be leaving for my anual trek to Dallas to watch my Cowboys play…for those of you who follow the sport, I’ll be watching them play the Giants. (I’ll also get to meet Jay Novacek) Co Cowboys!
Immediately following our trip to Texas, my awesome sister and her husband will be coming to visit. Since the parental units now live down here, we’ll be having an “early Thanksgiving” during their stay. This means houseguests…both for when my girl friend comes to doggie sit my babies while I’m in Big D and again when my sis and bro come down. Clean, clean, clean…that will be me for the next few days. Never fear, though, it won’t interfere with my blogging. 🙂 I’ve come to really enjoy doing this and consider it my “me” time.
Onto my good news…one of the guys I sing with has written a song. He has reached out and asked me to collaborate with him and come up with some lyrics. What an honor! He sent me the music this week…now it’s up to me to come up with the rest. Cross your fingers for me!
Anyway, my buddy Emma mentioned Harry Chapin the other day in one of her blogs…and it got me to thinking about his daughter…Mary Chapin-Carpenter. I want to share two songs with you guys from her repertoire. One is the first song I ever heard her perform…and she knocked it out of the park (no wonder she’s so respected for her talent in the music industry). It is called “Opening Act”. The second one is about how things can sometimes go wrong. With my headache, I’ve felt like “The Bug” this week, which, incidentally, is the name of the second song.
How has your day been?
