The chorus is getting all geared up for this weekend. We are off to Spokane for the annual regional competition. We practice all year to get on stage for six minutes and see who comes out on top. There are fourteen choruses competing this year from Alaska, Washington and Idaho. It was my first experience in it last year, and it was great fun. A big hotel filled with middle-aged singing women. We dress up in look-alike fancy costumes, wear big hair and false eyelashes and really, really red lips! We had a dress rehearsal last night, and it sounded pretty good from where I was standing.
But wouldn’t ya know, I woke up this morning with a scratchy throat and a dull headache. Have felt pretty out of it all day. I made it though a board meeting this morning, a Pilates session this afternoon, followed by a hot rock massage. (Boy, was that ever great!) Came home and took a handful of proberry capsules, a couple of ester-c’s, some oscillococcinum and some respiratone. I surely hope I’m not going to come down with something just before this weekend!
I think I will take some food reinforcements with me to the competition. Last year it was pretty near impossible to stay compliant eating hotel and restaurant food. Plus, all the other gals bring stacks and stacks of the dreaded munchies. I’ll bring Boomibars and some of those Real Bars that Amanda suggested in one of her blogs. I ordered the Real Green bars, and they are definitely edible.
So, will be back early next week with an update.
