Home Sweet Home

Posted by rdub in Life

First day back at work, and I can’t help feel a sense of relief.  Today is the first night Athena and I come home to an empty house.  It’s nice to be able to unwind before being bombarded with family (we’ve seen non-stop family for the entire duration of our 2 week vacation), but it’s also bitter-sweet having to say goodbye to everyone.

We spent the evening doing absolutely nothing: I built a fire, she made us Top Ramen, we watched a movie, and now she’s casually rehearsing for her audition this Saturday.  Fate has cursed her with a small cold, but I’m helping her with whatever I can – Flonase, warm honey water, and by leaving the room when she’s really belting it out.  Eventually, I’ll convince her to record her practice sessions – it’s really the only way to learn.  Sing into a mic, record it, and listen to what comes out the other end – it’s often quite enlightening.

I think I’m gunna chill out for a bit, and just listen.

Party Time

Today is party day, so we got up early.  I’m still not quite functional, but I’m working on it. We’re going to have somewhere around 40 close friends and family over, and it’s gunna be awesome.  We got some budget money from our families, and were able to stock the bar, get a ton of good food, and decorate the place really nicely.

We’ve got a busy day today: buying flowers, getting Athena a dress, setting up party trays, getting ice, setting up the bar…. you get the idea – a ton of stuff to do.
