So, tonight was the big night. High School Musical 2. I "watched" it with Lily Kate and 5 of her friends, over here for her 7th birthday slumber party (her birthday is Tuesday). I am currently on patrol, making sure these girls (and a precocious little brother) go to sleep with a minimal amount of drama. Yeah, right.
I think I am the only one who watched the movie from begnning to end. A couple of the kids stayed pretty engaged through most of it. But by the end, it was just Angela and me, tearing up at the big "we all love each other and the world rocks" musical number at the end. We are such cheeseballs.
Did you watch it? Did you like it?
It has been a nice week. Wait a minute...have we talked about last weekend? About the Women of Faith conference in Atlanta? About how I got to sing a little diddy with Sandi Patty? About how I could have just swallowed my tongue I was so beside myself? Well, yeah...that.
It was an awesome weekend. And a great honor to sing on the same platform as someone like her. I am very grateful for that moment in time!
It was an end to a brutally intense travel schedule for the summer. By the end of the day last Friday, I had totally lost my voice. I woke up the next morning and had nothing left. Nothing. Well, nothing but dangerously hoarse low noises. I was supposed to sing the next day (Sunday) at FBC Woodstock, GA (an awesome church where I have many friends). And I had to do the unthinkable - I had to cancel my day there. I was so stressed out, because I didn't want to cancel. But I know my voice well, and I knew that it was not going to bounce back quickly. So I had to call them and tell them I couldn't do it. Arghhhh.
So, although I hated to cancel, I knew it was the right thing to do. I will go back there sometime soon.
I have had this whole week to rest my voice, and it has been wonderful. Nothing but grocery store runs, football and cheerleading practice, grilling out, some office work...and, oh yeah, High School Musical with six 7-year-olds.
Awesome week indeed!
