Big day

I start at City Academy today—I am teaching 12 hours a week of violin group classes while my friend Laura is on maternity leave.  I am completely stressed out about this…one of my biggest stressors had been worrying about how to fit working out into my schedule as well.  Evidently I just don’t do that anymore.  (Injury, remember, not completely sheer laziness…) Today is an 11 hour work day though, woo hoo! 

I’m sure it’ll be fine.  At least the classes are M/T/Th/F which means Wednesday I get to recoup and catch up on everything.  And I’ll be making a lot of extra money going into the summer.  And the kids are really sweet. 

I need to learn to say no!  But Laura is such a good friend, I just couldn’t.  One can do anything for 6 weeks, right?

Oh, and that means that today she is having her baby.  That’s going to be awesome.  (In no way should you take my excitement over Laura and Jon’s baby as an indication that I want my own.  Just saying.  I look forward to visiting him, rubbing his little soft fat feet, maybe poking in the belly a bit, and then HANDING HIM BACK to his parents and going home.  I need my beauty sleep.)  But seriously, everybody send good wishes to Laura today, she’s going to be great!

And send good wishes to me as well.  I can do this, right?  Or if not, well, it’s only until the end of May. 

I wish we lived the kind of exciting lives that would be ruined by having a baby.
