Tomorrow is the first of the MT trial classes...and happily, I guess, Mom's groups around baltimore have been emailing each other the info, so I've just had a pretty big response. This coming week in many ways is very important, making a good impression on these perspective families is essential to my success this year...I'm not sure I'll have such a big chance to make a first impression. This is exciting though. I'm ready to accept whatever presents itself,and after a summer off from the scene more or less I feel refreshed and's hoping

While yesterday I was a wheeling and dealing baby-dancing businesswoman, making phone calls to guitar stores, making black bean burgers, emailing like crazy, making to do lists and crossing everything off. Today was not. There were a few slightly discouraging events that brought me down as well as a scrabble game involving shots of beer the night before that made me fuzzy and incapable...I am 30 after all and don't have the resiliance I used to.

I look forward tomorrow to resuming the Red Canoe Sing a Long, more wheeling and dealing, my favorite step class and 4tet sectional.

Sorry for my absence. I know the world is waiting with baited breath to see what exciting twists and turns my life has taken *cheesy grin*. Seriously though, the summer is almost over...I am officially 30 now, which has ceased to be a little depressing to me, even though I've had almost a whole month to come to grips with it. I was going to create a blog post to celebrate my accomplishments and all the good things about getting older, but I couldn't do it without being braggy. I'm still a little chubbier than I would like to be due to my post-wedding eating blitz. I have begun to cut back and exercise, and the plan is pursue these healthy choice in a way that fits in to my life rather than taking it over. I'll be in touch with how that goes.

One of my projects this summer was to do at least one thing a day that I am scared of. Turns out I'm scared of a lot of things that really aren't that bad. Its amazing how much these silly apprehensions hold me back from actually accomplishing anything.

Another project that is slowly shaping up is re-doing the kitchen. AJS and I dreamed of moving into a single family house in one of the idyllic baltimore suburbs after the wedding...but that isn't happening due to the stupid economy. So, I rolled up my virtual sleeves yesterday and spent too much time at and figuring out cabinets, dishwashers and other appliances that might fit. One of the good things about a small house in a not-so-fancy-or-hip-neighborhood is that our kitchen is small and we might not have to spend a ton of money to make it MUCH nicer. So thats what we're going to try to do. We will happily kiss the painted over metal cabinets with doors that fall off, the disgusting fridge, the malfunctiong oven, and most of all the hole in the linoleum floor a happy good bye.
