What a difference a day makes!

I didn't cry at all today. What a novel idea. Thanks for your kind words about my post from yesterday. It totally made it worth it to get it off my chest.

I got to spend some much-needed down-time with Max today. He's had a rough schedule lately. As a security guard, he usually works from 6 a.m. to 2 p.m. Some contractors been doing an overnight job in his building for two weeks now. Max's job has been to watch them not steal things from peoples' desks and make sure they keep the building clean. What a horrible job. He's worked with no days off from 6 p.m. to 5 a.m. for nearly two weeks. Hopefully, they'll finish this coming Sunday.
Thank goodness I'm on vacation. Otherwise, I'd never get to see him. He says the overtime pay is worth it. I'll be glad when it's over.

I bought a new digital camera -- the Canon PowerShot A590 IS. So far, I love it! I've only taken a couple of pictures ... Max and the cat. I'll post a few when I've got some new ones of me.

Also, some of you know that I'm a (somewhat) professional singer. For several years, I've been singing in a Jewish women's a cappella group. Talk about a niche market. However, we keep pretty busy, get paid to perform, and have a CD out. One of the girls in the group is engaged to someone who is in a blues band. He's asked three of us to be their backup singers. We had our third rehearsal tonight. AND, our first show with the rest of the group is later this month at a really cool bar. Definitely not a place the Jewish ladies usually perform. I'm so excited!

Not a lot going on otherwise. Has anyone read the new novel by Janet Evanovich? I don't know the title, but it's something with the number 14 in it. Is it worth buying, or should I just sit in the bookstore for a few hours? I'm #66 on the waiting list at the library. :(

Glad to hear today is going better! Good for you!

And Hopefully Max gets some down time together, sounds like you need it badly!

my girlfriend at work just got the new book - other girlfriend that lent it to her said that it wasn't the best - might be worth it to wait for the library!

I'm so excited you are blogging again! I haven't checked your site for a while, so I was super excited to see your comment!

I hope everything turns out well with your health issues. Testing positive for something is never easy, and when it is something that is sexually transmitted, that just adds a whole other layer of emotion on top of it. I'm glad Max is being supportive and is there for you. Keep us posted, if you are comfortable, with how things are going.

Definitely post pictures soon with your cool camera!

I'm so glad to have you back! :)
