I feel pretty... oh, so pretty...

I realize I haven't posted in a while, but it's actually been a pretty busy week for me. I had a solo, well really three performances on Easter Sunday. I haven't had a solo in a while, so I was on the nervous side. That frustrates me because I feel pretty relaxed, but when I sing, it's obvious my vocal chords are not relaxed. The first service was... okay. I could have been a lot better. The second and third were better as I was a little more comfortable. My friend Jeff was at the second service to cheer me on (and made me feel great about my performance) and my Mom was at the third. She was concentrating on the taping, so she really didn't hear much of it until she got home and watched the tape. That's fine with me! :)

Then the next day on Monday, I drove 200 miles to a job interview. It wasn't like any interview I've been on before really. It was more of a photo shoot (to promote their new thing), but it was very relaxed and fun. I laughed and had a good time, and yet still had somewhat of an interview. Today I got an official offer that I would be a freakin' moron to turn down. Praise God!!! I'll be getting somewhere around a 60% raise. It's awesome. The first two months or so will be a lot of travel, ie., living out of hotels and stuff, but it will be worth it.

So I'm pooped. There's a lot of stress involved in solos and job changes. I'm hoping to go to bed early and sleeeeeeep!!!
More later.

WoooHooo! Go Aimee!! Congratulations on getting a better job!! Um, I'm a little enthusiastic right now because I just finished watching American Idol and I've had a bottle of wine. But hey, this is great news!!

Thanks Faythe! I'm pretty excited - a little nervous, but that's to be expected I suppose.
