The day began with overwhelming sluggishness and turned out to be a very productive day.
After feeding The Quartet I predicted an hour’s nap won’t suffice. It did not. Finally, at Noon I begrudgingly prodded my self into action.
I managed to:
- Write four college reference letters
- Prep some music for students for next week
- Prepped some senior students’ college audition songs
- Took a lot of deck furniture to the shed and basement
- Cleared a good deal off the deck
- Removed my theatre books off the white bookshelf in my study
- Took the white bookshelf to the basement
- Brought up a taller bookcase to put in place of the shorter bookcase
- Reorganize all my theatre books on their new bookcase
- Take out the window air conditioner from my study
- Dust the study
- Reorganize a few studio areas in my study
- Set up all the four humidifiers throughout the house
- Wash dishes
- Feed dogs
- 4:00 PM teach a makeup lesson to a student who’d been sick for several weeks
- Eat supper
- Shower and dress for choral concert
- Took Bus 17 to the south hub near the Dayton Mall
- Bus 23 showed up earlier
- Called at Uber and arrived at high school with 15 minutes to spare
- Shot photos from balcony throughout the high school choir concert
I had five students on stage tonight, all in the top choirs and a cappella groups, with several featured soloists. I am so proud of the excellent work put forth and the confident performances from these five!
Tomorrow, I am in hopes of completing the clearing of the deck and straightening the basement, some.
Then, it’s on to the Fairmont/Centerville game and the traditional Spirit Chain challenge. Last year, Fairmont raised $92,676.66 and Centerville brought in $63,519.52. Each school determined a variety of different charities to which the monies would be distributed. Over the past 33 years, Centerville and Kettering Fairmont students have raised more than $2 million for charity during this friendly competition.
I’m on the bus heading for The Haasienda where I shall be greeted by an eager foursome ready to potty, receive a treat, and head upstairs to bed.
Once upon a time I could easily function at full speed on 4-5 hours; however, the past month or so my body is demanding 6-8 hours of sleep with additional rest. The challenges are slowly introducing themselves.
