I’m not cut out to sing in public, unless I have at least one other person singing the same part I am (so usually in at least a small full choir of 8 or a women’s choir of 4-6): if I’m the only person singing a particular part, I get SO nervous that my diaphragm tenses up and I can barely BREATHE, let alone sing…  I haven’t done that for…oh, maybe 15-odd yrs, and now I remember why…

first day of school tomorrow for eldest; trying not to be frustrated by the lack of prep on his mother’s part (no school clothes — good thing his dad went school clothes shopping for all of the kids this weekend, no school shoes, no arrangements for lunch, no idea who his teacher is or where his classroom will be, etc.)…

Viv’s face looks pretty awful now that it’s starting to scab over already (she scraped her face all up yesterday riding a neighbour kid’s scooter and going too fast down a hill she’s not supposed to be on in the first place b/c it’s on a busy street)…

I really like yoga; I think I’d like it even more if I actually had some cute yoga clothes — old schleppy sweats just aren’t the same…

I have two online acquaintances I’ve been thinking about a lot lately — these ladies both live w/fibromyalgia, and I’ve been wondering if I might be able to formulate a topical ointment that might give them more relief than what their docs are currently offering them…  I don’t have all of the ingredients on hand that I want to use, and some of them are pretty pricey, but I just can’t imagine living w/that kind of constant pain (and it’s not as if I wouldn’t have any use for those ingredients myself; plus at least one of them would fit nicely into the second aromatherapy business I’m working on)…

I really need to find a new preK for Viv or I’m going to spend all day in the car every Tues, plus it’s just stupid to have one child in AM kindergarten and another child in PM preK so that I still have no time to myself even w/the kids being back in school…!  I certainly didn’t plan it that way (the kindergartener is a stepson, so I have very little input into what his mother does), but as of right now that’s what I’m stuck with, and frankly, w/the price of gas still being so outrageous (anything over $2.25/gal is outrageous IMO), I really don’t want to be driving all over creation shuttling kids to and from school…
