Anything Goes

Ah, it was a beautiful day today. Actually it has been really nice the past few days. I guess I shouldn't complain about Texas weather so much, as a lot of the country is covered in several inches of snow and we are running around in shorts.

But today was nice, almost too hot surprisingly, but definitely a welcome change from the past few weeks of cold. Church was good today, as usual, although it was severely stuffy in the sanctuary. It was not the best environment for a big ol' preggo lady, but it didn't bother me near as bad as it did Hubby. The music was great too - they performed a bunch of stuff I didn't recognize but that was ok. I couldn't sing much because of the heat; it made me light headed.

The singing thing is going much better. I guess God has decided to work with me on that; I don't get near as choked up as I did unless I think about it a lot. Thank goodness because I so enjoy the music every Sunday. I wish they would put in the bulletin who was singing each week. I feel like I am sharing something with the 4 or 5 people that lead the music in the service and I don't know their names. It drives me nuts. I am not the type to walk up to folks and introduce myself, but it would be nice if I saw them in the hall I could address them by name and thank them for enhancing the worship that morning. I suppose I could do that without a name too. Eh, it still would be nice.

After posting that entry about singing a while back and receiving some of the comments, it occurred to me that in all my singing experience, in all the hundreds and hundreds of concerts and performances and solos and recitals - it is very, maybe even extremely likely that I do NOT have one single recording of myself performing (talking about college and after stuff here - Mom and Dad, back away from the jr. high videos please!). How can that be??? I know I have an audio tape of my junior year college recital somewhere, but I have no idea where it is. I have got to find that and figure out a way to convert it to digital. I know the college should have a library of all the concerts and stuff, but can you imagine trying to find yourself in all those archives??!? Insane!

Anyway it makes me sad. I kind of wish we still lived in AZ, then I could have David help me record some stuff. That would be awesome. Of course, I don't sound anything like I did then. Ah well. The only person that hears me sing now is Kiddo and the poor unfortunate soul in the row in front of me at church. That's ok.

I have been very hormonal lately. Very moody and cranky. Everything is getting on my nerves. I hate being like this. It really does bother me, but I am pretty much powerless to stop it at this point.

And to make the emotional rollercoaster that much more of a ride, we have had some highs and lows this week. I found out that an old high school friend received a cancer diagnosis. She is 32. 32!!!! So very young to go through something like this. But you know what is amazing? She has the most wonderful faith. The most positive, God praising attitude about the whole thing - I am just completely blown away by her unwavering testimony at what must be a terrifying and troubling time in her life. I am awed by her strength and her constant faith and praise. Please keep her and her family in your prayers. She has a wonderful hubby and two handsome teenage boys.

And in the highs we have the news that my good friend B had her 3rd baby yesterday - a little boy (after 2 girls)!!! I am so happy for her. And I am dying to see pictures!

So I am all over the place today. Sorry - I just felt the need to babble. I managed a picture today. Here is me and the Port man at 31 weeks officially.

Sorry I didn't dress up for you. ;) My ball gown is at the cleaners.

I know, I look tired. I am.
