BALANCING THE SCALES

Things That Made Me Happy Yesterday:
  • having a shitty morning turned around by validation and adoration from my peeps even if I did have to practically lie down and expose my belly for it
  • a busy day at work
  • the kids behaving well and doing what I needed them to do all evening
  • singing with Debbie and Sharon
  • watching my kids out the window while singing, as they jumped and tumbled together on the big trampoline
  • seeing the look on Karin's face as Debbie's daughter Maria wrapped her arms around her and bounced them together
  • late-evening sunshine after a cruddy weather week
There are 4 of us that are going to sing together as entertainment at the Welcome Reception during the Regional Meeting the AWC is hosting in September. Wendy hasn't met with us yet, but she assures us she is committed. Sharon and Debbie and I got together at Debbie's yesterday evening and started practice. We blew through 4 songs and started a 5th before it got too late, and we scheduled 2 more practices (with Wendy) for before I leave for the States. We plan on practicing at least 3x after I return as well.

We're mostly sticking with rounds and canons and I realized that a good introduction for our program would be to say rounds and canons take people working together to produce something beautiful, much like the clubs in FAWCO itself.* So far, the lineup consists of 2 songs that Debbie and I have sung with choir, Lyckan är Gul and Vår Dudileja, 3 campfire rounds: 1 Bottle of Pop, Coffee, and Let Us Sing Together; and a song that I sang in junior high choir called Love is a Song. Wendy may add a song or two to the program as well, but we don't want to do more than 6-7 songs at the most. 1 Bottle of Pop will be good for getting the audience involved; it's a hoot to sing.

Recent Swenglish:
1) Telling Martin I would come in a minute and goosey** in the bed with him.
2) Telling Karin that I would wink** at her on the way out.
