Woo-hoo! I got my BTD health library books from Amazon yesterday. I was going to get the Cardiovascular and the Diabetes books, but with just those two, I was only three cents away from getting free shipping on the order. So, I blew caution to the wind and ordered the Cancer book, too. Haven’t had a chance to delve into them much, but I’m enjoying the anticipation.
I’ve had a couple of intense days. Work was hectic yesterday. Being the first of the month and a Friday, we were pretty well slammed all day long. In the middle of the day I had my ‘annual’ voice lesson from our chorus coach that comes up from California a few times each year. Since I switched voice parts this summer, she coached me on how to sound more like a baritone (new part) than a lead (old part). It was really cool. There’s lots of stuff to work on.
Then today the chorus had an all day workshop with said same coach. It was great how she just ripped in to everything we were doing and changed things for the better. Very inspiring and exhilarating. It was a long day, and my brain is a little numb from all the mental and sensory stimulation.
My feet are a little tired, too.
Of course, along with the all day workshop came the potluck lunch. I took compliant vegetable and fruit trays. I tasted some of the homemade casseroles and other dishes, and splurged on a cookie. My throat reacted by closing up a bit and getting too phlegmy. I shoulda’ known better! I did know better. I just couldn’t resist.
