After a lackluster start to this week, I must say, it’s ending on a high note. And, might I add, not one of those wow-that-is-such-a-high-note-that-it’s-gonna-crack-the-glass sort of high notes. The good kind.
Aside from the excitement I feel about the new things pictured here — this pair of on-sale Nine West cuteness, a dangly-yet-simple-and-classy gold(ish) necklace, and a scarf I crocheted in my most favorite color — there is a whole blizzard of cool things going on. For one, I get to wear all this stuff this weekend, to a wedding. Another? The bride opted to pay me on the high end of my price range for playing the piano for her ceremony — a timely bonus. Yet another? My completely incredible husband, who works so hard, all day every day, has finally been rewarded for his integrity. His bosses gave him a stellar review along with a 12% salary increase. Also timely.
Still more good news: Diligent December is finally, um, diligent. In the past two days, I’ve nearly caught up to where I should be, despite not writing a word for three out of the past eight days. Not only is my word count up, but I’m feeling involved in the emotional aspects of the story, enrapt, and am confident that the quality is there, too. The scenes I wrote this morning were intense, emotional, important. They’re the beginning of what I’ve been building up to this entire time. Just as I was completely satisfied with the Glee winter finale, it’s nice to see loose ends begin to wrap up, lies get exposed, drama unfold. Consequences.
On top of all that, it is cloudy and cold and I love it.
In honor of the Glee finale, and in hopes that December stays awesome, here’s a link to a fantastic rendition of “Don’t Rain on My Parade,” as performed by Lea Michele in this week’s episode. So. Very. Good.
Thanks for all your support in this process, you guys. I can’t tell you enough how grateful I am to have connected with you all.
