I'm gonna sing!

I think all of you know this (unless maybe I forgot to put it on Twitter...all my readers are either there or on Facebook now!) but anyway, I'm in the choir!  I'm so excited!  It's so much fun, the people are nice, and I already have a friend that I sit next to and laugh about things like I used to do with Christen and Liz back in high school.  They told me when I got in that "it's a family," so now I have something like 90 family members, haha.  ;)

Anyway, so in March we're doing a bunch of spiritual songs.  They're the fun ones, we used to do stuff like this in high school.  Then in May we're doing a piece that is apparently famous for the difficult soprano part - Beethoven's Missa Solemnis.  Look it up on iTunes and take a listen.  I can guarantee that even in the 30 second "try before you buy" clips you'll hear the lovely high note we have to sing something like 50 bazillion times.  I guess I'm just diving right back in to this choir thing!  But the group sounds really good even in rehearsal, which makes me happy, I like being in a group that I can feel proud to invite people to.

Speaking of inviting...Jenn, I'll be sure to let you know the exact dates/locations of the March and May concerts.  I'll send you a Facebook message or something.  Anyone else, if you happen to be in Boston for some random reason in March or May, you're welcome to come too!  Or December, for that matter, but we won't start that stuff until after Labor Day.

This group also goes on a trip every other year.  They're going to Germany this summer but I had to know on Monday if I could go.  I can't exactly decide on the spot that I'll be able to scrounge up the money to go to Germany.  I don't even have a passport!  So, I'll wait for 2011.  =)

In other news, my elbow still hurts.  I'm actually going to the doctor tomorrow.  I really don't like going to the doctor, so this is a big move for me.  It doesn't hurt constantly, but it hurts (a lot) when I do something oddly simple like pushing in a drawer or getting dressed.  It doesn't hurt when I type though, so don't worry about me typing this post.  =)  Anyway, I just figure if it's been a week and it still hurts like this, maybe it's better for a doctor to tell me it's fine rather than just assuming it is.  So anyway, I'll let you know if I managed to go a week with a hairline fracture or something ridiculous like that.  I do have a high pain tolerance, it's entirely possible.

Well, I'm off to continue being lazy, like I've done all day.  Yay for snow days!

That's so awesome! Glad you have a creative outlet to balance out all the tax stuff you do. :)

YES please let me know right away when your dates are, Matt and I will both be there cheering you on at at least one of your shows I can promise that! I might have to bring my Mom too, she loves choral concerts :) SO very exciting and hopefully it will not be affected by the elbow :) Enjoy rehersals and don't wear yourself out (I can't believe you have time for anything other than being in school/working lol).

Ugh, I just realized I did a double word, i hate that. Let's rephrase:

Matt and I will both be there cheering you on at one of your shows at least

Better but still not grammar approved lol.
