My 12 days, compressed into one weekend

December 19, 2008 at 3:46 AM

12 Holiday songs for sung by 500 students in K-5 that are all about snowflakes & sleigh rides (it's going to be 76 degrees tomorrow)

11th hour babysitter desperation for this weekend's gigs

10 cups of coffee

9 beginning Suzuki violin students playing Jingle Bells & Twinkle

8 gallons of gas needed to fill my car to get to everything

7 meals eaten while driving

6 geese, not currently in the back yard, but will be soon, if it stays this warm

5 a.m.-when I will be up, getting ready for school holiday concerts.

4 stray cats who come running from the woods when they see my green Subaru (the food mobile).

3 more non-Messiah church gigs

2 more Messiah performances


1 Boy Paganini to accompany on violin, as played by a 2nd grader

At least gas is cheap right now.  Last time I filled up, in Chilton, I paid $1.59 a gallon.  Can't beat that with a stick.  Also, the drought is officially over!  Hang in there!
