I am about to embark on a busy season. I just hope I have a little time to breathe!
I just started a training program to teach Kindermusik. I can do it on my own time, but it consists of 15 modules, and they say if I spend 3-4 hours per week I can finish it in 8 to 10 weeks. So that’s my goal. I hope to be done by early December, and start classes in January.
My Barbershop Chorus (Pride of Kentucky Chorus, a.k.a POKY) will soon be competing in the International Competition. In 2008 we won our region, so we qualified for Internationals. That is coming up in October. In preparation for that we have, in addition to our regular weekly rehearsal, several extra coaching sessions and a weekend retreat where we can put in the extra time needed to prepare.
And if that were not enough, I have a 1½ week job working for some event at the Fairground. Last year I worked doing parking for the Ryder Cup that they held at Valhalla. The same company called me and asked me if I wanted to work another event, and I said yes. I’ll be really busy, but it’s just for a short time. So you probably won’t be able to reach me from Sept. 30 to Oct. 9.
Oh yeah, and don’t forget that Gabi turns 4 months old this Tuesday, so she is due for her 4 month check up, and Rachel turns 2 years old the following Tuesday, so she is due for her 2 year check up. So stay tuned for an update on their vital statistics.
