I must say I can't believe school is starting so I better get my butt in gear and practice which I have been doing. This is it...turned in the rough draft of my thesis and now just practicing what I am going to sing for my audition. I love singing...it is such a creative outlet. My voice is stronger than it has been for a long time. I am up to anything...and all challenges. The only annoying thing right now is my rhematoid arthritis. It is cold here in Socal and I wake up with stiff joints. I know I am in remission but the affects of the arthritis is there. So I crawl out of bed and jump into a warm shower. Ah, no I can function. I am also going to the gym again. Pilates are for insane people like me...I just love being a human pretzel!!!! I like the water aerobics class even though most of the people are senior citizens. Anyway, back to my musical endeavors!!
