So my wonderful husband was gracious enough to take me to see the Los Angeles Master Chorale in concert last night at Walt Disney Concert Hall. It was three hours of the best choral music that the Chorale had done in the past 50 years.
Rich didn't know what he got himself into when he married me. Long concerts and operas.
Truth be told I think he might have actually liked it!!
It was an amazing concert and I was blown away.
Singing with other people is one of the most wonderful things. You stop being you for awhile and become us.
I know I am biased but I know that singing with others have soothed souls from the coal miners to 9/11 and I think if more did it the world would be a happier place.
I understand your skepticism over this post about my lack of blogging and my continued promises to "get better" but at least you can't say that I am a quitter.
Just a lazy blogger?
Yeah I like that one better.
Andrew is in college at the University of Arizona and absolutely loving it. I wish he didn't love it so much as he probably would need me more, but I can't really complain. He is playing baseball, has a job, and texts me now and then.
Bella has been cast as Wendy in our upcoming production of Peter Pan. She is doing great and I love being around her. She is a hoot. She also got her tonsils out right before school started, she is one tough cookie.
Sarah is knee deep in marching band and they had their first parade yesterday. They were the highlight of the parade, in my honest opinion. Don't get me wrong I love the Square Dancing club Boots and Slippers, as well as the Masonic Family Center, and don't forget the Wheelie Guy, but nothing says parade like a good old marching band.
I love embarrassing her, she is right behind the Sousaphones, and has the red face and big grin as she walks by. So proud of her and all she has done with marching band.
So I can only hope to express the craziness of the last few weeks with a pictorial.
I have to say how much I love my iPhone. It takes great pictures and I can upload them do easily!!!
Lucky you, right?

Gonna try another video. This is Bella and her peeps singing at the talent show. Hard to see her she is the one on the very left of the screen. She is the soloist after the break and she sings harmony.
My little Abby burned her hand a couple days ago. She is going to be just fine but if you find the time to say a little prayer for her that would be wonderful. But most important a little prayer for her mama, my sister, because as you know it is way harder to watch your little one suffer than to actually suffer yourself. Motherhood can be a real heartbreaker.
