I am still in my pajamas. I am having a do nothing day. I got burned out with all the doing and stuff last week with Thanksgiving, and I got a little overzealous. So, if you got a comment from me on your blog today, that's why. Today is blog day.
I wanted to tell you all about my latest news with my music without sounding like I'm begging for you go over to my website and spend money, but really, that's exactly what I'm doing.
I ordered a new batch of CD's, because I finally "sold" (more like gave away) all of my other ones. I am selling them on my website for 20% off for the holidays. I think I will keep them on sale until Christmas.
I also finally put together a song book with songs from the Solitude CD. So all of you pianists out there might like it! It is also for sale at my website for 15% off. I might slash it a little more for Christmas and go all crazy and do 30% off or something. We'll see.
CD's are a great Christmas gift! Go order some! PLEASE!?
Ok, I have a confession to make. This is really stupid and I'll probably regret writing this, but I'm been blog stalking a lot today. And I've gone over to all of my family member's blogs, and I think I'm pretty good at keeping up with them and commenting and stuff. But I've noticed that a lot of my cousins/sisters comment on each other's blogs, but not on mine. I feel like the loser dork who desperately wants to hang out with the cool kids. Is that dumb to let that hurt my feelings?
My precious little angel is getting baptized this Saturday. I'm so proud of her. I can see the Spirit in her, preparing her for this momentous event. She has been the sweetest, most helpful, wonderful little girl lately.
I had intended to go get her picture taken, but life just got busy. So, I was thinking of just going to Kiddie Kandids, but that almost seems sinful knowing there are so many amazing photographers out there in blogland.
Anyone have any recommendations for someone who could take beautiful pictures of my angel for a low price? Someone maybe in the Northern Utah area, that wouldn't charge me to travel to my neck of the woods?
My ward Christmas party is tonight. I was asked to play the piano for it. I'm always happy to get a gig, even if its just for the ward party. They want me to play Lamanite and Jerusalem music. Other than Book of Mormon stories, and maybe Hava Nagila, I got nothin. Any suggestions?
I've also been wanting to get around to transcribing some of my Christmas arrangements into sheet music. Would anyone be interested in some Christmas sheet music?
And I guess I should expand on my Facebook status, since I left you all hanging. I went to my doctor yesterday. It was just supposed to be the first of many check ups--every six weeks, I was to go in, check in, and get blood work done. But, my blood work came back abnormal. the doc showed me my test results and told me I'm a record breaker. I guess the test only goes up to a certain number, and my results were so far above that number that they can't even measure it. And after 6 weeks of being on anti-thyroid drugs, they are still too high for the test.
So, the doc decided to bag the drugs and schedule radioactive iodine treatment instead. That's supposed to kill my thyroid. Then, I get to take thyroid hormone drugs for the rest of my life.
We're doing it next Wednesday, which means this week, I stop taking the drugs. My symptoms will come back, and I have to be on this special zero iodine diet. It sucks. I can pretty much each nothing but fruit and veggies. I have to stay away from all dairy, and can only eat 4 servings per day of whole grains --as long as its made with non-iodized salt, and only 5 oz. of poultry--not turkey (so much for leftovers). And then I have to be isolated for 3 days. I can't see anyone. It really sucks.
