First of all, I'm leaving in about two hours for St. George. I should be packing and getting ready instead of on the computer, but I just couldn't leave without saying Goodbye first.
So this is it! THE marathon. Ok, not THE marathon. THE marathon would be Boston. But, I'm probably not going there. Not this year, at least. So this is MY marathon, for now. I've had a pretty good week, so there is the slightest hope that maybe I could qualify for Boston, but realistically, I know I can't run quite that fast. I'll settle for finishing the race.
I'm excited to go have a weekend away. This couldn't have come at a better time.
Good luck to Clint with the monkeys. I'm sure there will be a lot of movies and football.
Don't forget to watch conference.....
Ok, I know I just put that little snippet at the end of my Tag post. I don't know why, but I feel hesistant to talk about it. Like maybe I'll jinx myself if I do. The reality is that my dream, the dream I've had since I was 4 years old, and have been dreaming about my entire life, if finally coming true. I don't want to get my hopes up too much, because the first thing I have to do it just get the recording done. I have a place to go, I have permission from my wonderful supportive hubby to spend the money to do the recording. And I have Greg Hansen, the Godsend, who is going to help me kickstart my career. He called me on Wednesday afternoon, told me he really liked my music, other than the fact that my recordings were on a piano that was out of tune (how embarrassing), and that I can take it wherever I want to.
He has people to help me record, to help design my CD cover, and production, to help me design my webpage, and said he can get me in with Desert Book, FM100 Sounds of the Sabbath, and he can help me book gigs, like firesides, and local concerts.
I have floating on cloud nine! Could this really be happening?
I spent hours and hours transcribing a rough draft of sheet music for Solitude. I use Print Music, which is a computer program for songwriters. That stupid program kept timing out, over and over, and I kept losing my work. Hours of work. Gone. I got soooo frustrated. So, I sent an email to the help/support/customer service department over at Finale, and they said that the program isn't compatible with Vista, and that's why it's doing that.
Have you seen those PC vs. Mac commercials, where the PC guy gets frustrated with his Vista? Well, it's all true!
So, I paid for and downloaded an updated version of the program, and now I can't register it to use it.
I have really got to go take a shower, pack, do laundry, vacuum, go take back the videos, and get ready before 11:30 when I have to pick up TJ from school, and get back and be ready to leave by 12:30 because I'm meeting my friends in Draper at 1:30, and then we're off!
Wish me luck!!!
