Long story short

My life is crazy right now.  Someone should make a sitcom.

Long story "short":

Kyle visits for a gig.  He gets really sick.  There is a snowstorm during his visit that falls on Palm Sunday, so we have to cancel one of the services at church, and also the donkey that I had to hire (yes, a donkey) had to cancel.  A few days later (holy week) I get REALLY sick (like kyle).  Being sick during Holy Week when you're the music director is kind of a mess.  I had to cancel on a Chorale concert for that Saturday, and then showed up to church Easter Sunday with a huge fever.  There was a brass quintet.  Oh, and found out that our pastor had a stroke.  Yup.  So she's in the hospital.  Easter was crazy.  I almost died.  Then this week I kept thinking I was better, but I kept getting sick again.  I finally go to the doctor and get lots of steroids so I can get through a concert at the STL Basilica on Saturday.  I BARELY get through said concert, then get back at 3:30 in the morning on Sunday.  wake up 3 hours later and go to church.  I break the communion cup and everyone freaks out.  This week we have a service modeled after Prairie Home Companion, but pastor is still gone and NO ONE knows what to do.  Stress city.  On top of that I get a fax from the donkey people saying that they showed up to church on palm sunday and no one was there and they want us to pay them.  That is a lie.  I am in a fight with a donkey.

House Hating

Apparently in our house you cannot use the microwave and the washing machine at the same time.  Same goes for cooking pancakes on the griddle while microwaving syrup.  Also, I will never be able to blow dry my hair in our bedroom bathroom.
This townhouse is getting on my nerves.  We're thinking about moving.  I love this place, with its light floors, big, beautiful windows, and ivy crawling up our walls.  I love how big our bedroom is.  I love our neighborhood.  But people, it's time to leave.
It's also funny because we've had about 10 water main breaks in our neighborhood in the past 5 months.  That's a lot.  I'm just saying.

My Husband Rocks

He really does.

I have a lot of friends who talk to me about the negative relationships they have with their husbands, and this always makes me really sad for them, because as lame as it sounds, Frank and I don't have negativity in our relationship.  We really don't.  Maybe that will change, but in all the years that we've been together, the only goal in our relationship is to make sure we're happy when we're together.

Which is why my husband rocks.
