due date woes

Today was supposed to be my due date. I was pretty much dreading the day. I was on duty at work and so had to stay about 2 and a half hours longer than everyone else, plus Brian left for Colorado today and so he's not even around. I do have one friend who remembered the day though and I am so grateful to have her around. She's gonna hang out with me tonight.
I'm a little sad but there really is so much else going on that I don't have time to dwell on it. And I'm not the type of person to do that anyways. Instead, I'll go shopping and then maybe go see the neighbors baby and all that fun stuff. Just get out for a bit.
Calgary stampede coming up. I spent a lot of time today preparing the music for it. We are going to be playing some seriously cheezy crap on that trip! I'll be embarrassed if anyone I know comes while we're playing! Most of the stuff is pretty good but there are some really awful pieces in our repertoire.
Anyways, I just needed to write something down. Meh.

So sore

Seriously, who knew that playing softball would make a person sooooo sore? We played at work on friday and had a great time. Saturday morning rolls around and I can't fucking move, it was incredible. So much for going for a jog that day. Stupid fitness test anyways. Went for a small jog today but was still incredibly sore. Guess I'll go again tomorrow. Do any of you want to come out here and do my fitness test for me? I'd love you forever! It's not really that hard, other than the part where I am not a good runner. I'm stressing about that, I'm just not built to run and I suck at it on top of that. Oh, and I wasn't working out at all while I was pregnant and then too depressed to really do anything after losing the baby so I'm waaaay behind now. ugh.
Meh, it'll work itself out.
Just finished a crazy busy few weeks at work. Now things are starting to slow down and that's a good thing. I like to have weekends to myself.
So, we're going to be in Calgary for the stampede this year. It'll be my first stampede ever! How fun will that be.
I'm being spotlighted on our work webpage, check it out:
Fun times. It's hard to write a biography when you have to include all the military crap and keep it to a short number of words. meh.
Time to go play poker!!! Woohoo!

into the busy season we go

Today is June 5th. I joined the band on June 9th last year. I can't believe I have been working here almost a year already! Where has the time gone? Wow. And we're still playing some of the same crap that we were playing last year. Although I suppose I'll just have to get used to it, I'll be playing Soul Bossa Nova and The Hell Song for the rest of my career, I just know it. Meh.
It's totally been crazy busy lately too and it's not going to slow down until the end of July. We have played at Air Shows for the past two weekends, been preparing for other concerts as well. We have an outdoor concert in the park tomorrow night followed by a school concert the next day and as always there are parades and mess dinners. But I have to admit - I love it all. I love playing and knowing that I'm making a living playing. Even if I had to sell my soul to the government to do it. I'd do it again in a heartbeat. Steady income, you get to play all day, lots of practice time, you usually have time to do extra stuff in the evenings. Seriously doesn't get much better.
Anyways, before I go on forever.
I'm glad that you two have found my blog A and N - I mostly made it for you guys and J, I have other blogs that I've had before but never really shared. I miss you guys, I still find it wierd to not be in university anymore. I have to admit that I do like real life much better most of the time though!!!
Well, speaking of real life, stupid vaccuming is calling my name and I have to pull out some chicken to defrost for supper. Making chicken alfredo pizza, mmmmm.
((((hugs)))) to all of you!
