Opera emergency

Yesterday afternoon Brian heard from his agent that the tenor in a production of La Cenerentola (Rossini's Cinderella) was sick and they were looking for someone to cover in case he is not well enough to sing this weekend. So we had Brian to the airport this morning by 8am. Kind of crazy since we thought we had a bit more time to relax, but they will pay him just for being there, and pay him more if he has to sing. With the new baby coming and Brian keeping his schedule free for the newborn time, extra money will not hurt us. Colin was sad Dada had to go to work (he cried by the door for a while when we got home from the airport) but Brian should be back in just a few days.

Anyway, I am a single, pregnant mom of a toddler again for a few days. If my parents were not close I would go crazy. My belly is getting big, which makes wrestling Colin hard sometimes. If the new baby girl comes as early as Colin did, we would only have 10 weeks until she is born. But if I am overdue, it could be as much as 15 weeks until she comes. Crazy.

    Brian is in exotic Ohio. He is not going on for the opening, but I think they want to keep him close just in case. We are glad the other tenor is doing better because that is a terrible situation to be in. Brian is touring all of the area malls and reading a lot. He comes home on Monday night, which kind of cannot come fast enough.

    Yeah, good thing your parents are "close" (meaning in the same house).

    I did just mention to April that now that you are in SLC, excuse me, Holladay, your blog is kind of boring. What about your adventures in Utah?

    Thanks Pat and yeah, I know my Utah life is not too exciting. I went to Walmart today and the toliet flooded. Should I post about that?

    Wow, whether or not you post about the walmart and the toilet totally depends on whether the toilet flooded AT walmart or at home. Its a world of difference, you know!

    Sadly, it was a home toilet flooding, upstairs from our living space that made water pour down into our bedroom and bathroom. The drama was fairly short-lived, and hopefully there is not much long term damage. It is easier to walk away from a public toilet when the water is not interfering with private living space.
