My husband, who teaches at a local college, and our son, who attend UCSC, are still on vacation. Silly boys.

While I have taught all summer, I’m back to work “for reals” (as children like to say) this week. I have San Jose Chamber Orchestra (Opera!) and Symphony Silicon Valley (Music in the Meadow. I won’t be playing Video Games Live, as it only needs one oboist) this week. The following week I begin Opera San José, where we will be doing Eugene Onegin. In the middle of the opera run we also have a gala concert.

In addition, most of my students will get back to their regular schedules. Some I haven’t seen all summer long. I’m looking forward to seeing those I’ve missed, and getting everyone back on the “normal” schedule. I have a list of twenty students, but I have a feeling some may not be coming back. Good old marching band looks to have taken away one until at least the end of the year, and a couple others seem to be running out of time for oboe, what with their grueling school schedules and other activities. Guess I’ll find out soon. Our local schools begin this week or the next.

I’ll be glad to get back to “complete work” even though, for some reason, I don’t feel as if I had a vacation this summer. Work is good. Paychecks are very, very nice! 🙂
