I’m really tired. I’m not quite brain dead/crispy fried/toasted/speaking gibberish like I was on Saturday and Sunday nights, but I’m not far off.
Last week was Holy Week. For those of you who are not clergy/church musicians/married to or related to one of the above or who don’t work in a church,
Hell Holy Week is the busiest week of the calendar year for us. For me things were especially crazy because in the last few years I’ve gotten lazy been lucky to have Geoff to take me to my various singing commitments and I’ve been able to take off National Church Musician Recovery Day, aka Easter Monday, or I’ve been unemployed and by definition not needed to take the day off.
As it so happens, this year I started not one but TWO new jobs on NCMRD. My new full time job started on Monday as did a part time events job. On Monday I worked a 12 hour day and walked approximately 6.5 miles. This is immediately after a week in which I commuted all over the city on the bus*, was learning music constantly, was re-reading my old Access 2003 manual**, and sang a service on Thursday night, Friday night, Saturday night, and Sunday morning***.
So, yeah, I’m tired. The good news is that the people at my new job are awesome. I am having fun, though I am cramming my head with a LOT of stuff and am hoping desperately that I can get up to speed and be competent really, really fast. The other part time gig is only once or twice a month but it is super fun and I get to meet interesting/famous/really smart people.
Now I get to show you pretty pictures and then go to bed. Or pick out clothes for tomorrow, if I have the brain power.
OK, sleep. I think Geoff is working on some real content for you right now.
