The past week or so has become crazy around here!! Tomorrow is the first of two Solo and Ensemble Festival events in the area and I am accompanying many different students as they play their solos.
What this means is that I have had to practice with many different students in preparation for their performances. I am beyond exhausted and stressed.
My hands have been getting tired, but thankfully, they are holding up pretty well. My right eye is tending to the blurry side, but the left eye is staying strong.
Two weeks ago, my eye was so blurry before I went to bed that I knew if it were as blurry in the morning, I would have been going to the ER to get hooked up with some Solumedrol. It didn't seem as blurry that next morning.
But it has been going in and out, randomly, from day to day. Can I get away without calling this a mild case of optic neuritis? I don't have time for steroids. Period.
Tomorrow, my day starts at 8am at a school 30-40 minutes from my own home. Then I have to get to a different school to play for two other kids. A driving lunch break back to the original school to accompany another dozen kids from 1:00-3:30pm.
Trust me. This is a crazy schedule. I'm already exhausted just thinking about it. Fortunately, it hasn't been extraordinarily hot lately, so hopefully the schools won't be heat saunas.
I've got my fingers crossed that everything goes smoothly. Wish me luck.
In about 5 minutes, I'm going to go watch one of my horn students perform in a school production of Grease. She is a "pink lady." Should be a nice diversion. :)
Til later, be well.
