Back, back, back to schoooooooool...

That was me channelling Michelle Pfeiffer. Grease 2, baby.

Saw Grease 2 first, which totally ruined the first for me. How could Olivia Newton-John compare with Michelle Pfeiffer? Don't get me wrong, I loved ONJ in Xanadu [Mom even bought me the satin roller-skating jacket, which i wore until it frayed off my body], but the Brit in Grease 2 was WAY cooler than John Travolta. And the soundtrack ROCKED.

Oh yeah.

All this to say that I will not be going back to school this fall. And it's a little weird. Usually in the fall I'm ramping up, planning lessons, ordering music, kissing free time goodbye. But, being 2 days out from closing a crazily busy summer, I'm winding down...going in to work a little later, feeling a little less stress. Awesome. In some ways I miss the kids already - their willingness to work, (in full force in September, much harder to come by come April...) their silliness. But I'm excited to have this opportunity to try something different, knowing that I can go back to teaching should this not work out.

But I'd be pretty heartbroken should this job not work out. It's pretty cool.

So this week is just for tying up loose ends from the season, working on the fall projects, and thinking about the auditions in November. Plus several concerts (if I didn't feel so damn old, I'd go to all of them shows this week...Lyle Lovett, Steve Miller, Bruce Hornsby...already missed Chris Isaak because I was too tired to drive to work.) this week, and a day off at the end. Aaaahhh. Time to start really cleaning the house. You know it's bad when I'm looking forward to bleaching the hell out of something. My fingernails are shot, but my house is sparkly.

And the best part is that it's starting to feel a little bit like fall... time to turn off the ac and throw the windows open. My faorite time of year.
