Happy Memorial Day!

Oh my gosh - I have been WAAAAYYY too busy... I hope you all had a great Memorial Day weekend! We did - we got to put on our"performer" hats this weekend - one of the many hats we wear - and by far one of our favorite hats - in the music biz. We were in concert at Feather River Vineyards in North Platte NE. It was a gorgeous evening - apparently, one the first night it hadn't rained in a while! The vineyard was beautiful stretching out to forever. The audience was heavenly - a wonderful mix of people all ages and backgrounds. Got a standing ovation and an encore call...it is so nice to be appreciated. The next morning we sang for a church service at Holy Spirit church, also in North Platte, and got to see many of the same folks we met from the winery the night before. Everyone sang their hearts out - it was just beautiful! I love the people there and we made many new friends. We also got to spend time with my wonderful Aunt Karen and Uncle Dave. - they spoiled us rotten with cinnamon rolls, banana cake, enchiladas, a trip to the railroad yard, and tons of love... Boo got to meet some new cousins which is always a plus.

On the promo side of business, we won a Parents' Choice Award! Cool! Also Got some great write-ups too, in Nashville Parent (NAshville, TN), in All About Kids (Richmond VA), in TDMonthly (Toy Directory Monthly) and a few other places I can't think of off the bat...

I'm pooped today, but life is good.

Not every day is great...but that's...ok.

Last night was a bit of a bummer - had a trade show that was a bust. On top of a lagging economy, hubby still out of work from the writer's strike and now the actors may strike (which is another post altogether) - the tradeshow pushed me over the edge...and it all led to a very fragile me today...

Not every day is going to be great. I know that. My life's problems are so insignificant compared to women being raped in the Congo, or families who are living homeless on the streets. I live a very good life. I have a loving husband and a great kid. I work with a brother who is just a love. I love my family. I have a handful of a few great, very close girlfriends. And I am very thankful to my Mompreneur friends...they remind me that this too shall pass.

But I can't deny that today - sucked.
But that's... okay... I still have the right to grrrr.
Grrrr. And, thankfully, I have that right to say so.

Tomorrow will be better.
