For the past several months, not only have I been growing a new bean, I've also been rehearsing for a concert with a local operatic society.
This is me, in all my chubby-cheeked, fecund glory! Not too keen on the sparkly jacket/sack I was required to wear, but meh. It's just a costume! In this picture, I'm singing a solo from the song "I Will Wait For You". It's a French song, so my solo was sung in French.
Just for the record, I only took one year of French, my senior year of high school. It was just for fun, and I remember pretty much nothing of the experience. I was a tad nervous when I was asked to sing it!
Thankfully, all went well, and the show was a success overall. I have so much fun performing, and can't wait to get back into it in a year or so. Life will be busy when the baby comes, but once she's a year old or so, I'll be able to do their Gilbert & Sullivan production, Yeoman of the Guard. That should be great!
But the next thing on the agenda is to collapse in a tired, tired heap. Happy weekend, everyone!
