The Monday after...

Well, I have to say that I am pleased with the way the weekend went. My wombmate called me as I was leaving work on Friday and told me she was coming in to visit. It was much better having her here because I was able to focus less of my attention on what i was so nervous about and more on her, getting ready, and helping my throat.
I woke up on Saturday and my throat felt like it was going to five out before I got the opportunity to finish everything. It did not, however, abandon me until last night.

As I said before I was incredibly nervous (I think I almost made myself sick last Friday) but once I go up there I was fine. Everything I had planned worked quite well and I feel like I communicated what I wanted to. I did realize that I had cut out a lot of stuff I could have left in (my timing was off quite a bit) and spontaneously added some stuff that will stay.
I taped the whole thing, so hopefully I will be able to put some of it on here eventually. If anyone wants a copy you shouldlet me know and I can burn you one.

Thanks to everyone who sent me encouraging thoughts and let me know that they were thinking of me (Millie!)

Oh good! I'm so glad it went well. And glad you didn't have to do it all in a hoarse voice (although, as a storyteller, you could have worn a cowboy hat and gone with it!)

I definitely do want a copy. Maybe at Thanksgiving we can get one.
