Let’s see … opera began at 8:00. The first act usually ends at 8:57. So right now it’s intermission, but that will end soon, so I’m guessing everyone is getting back to the pit.

I’m “watching” the Giants game. (Watching but not seeing currently, because somehow the picture has been lost and we can only hear it. Oh well.) It’s 3-0, good guys. Nice!

After worrying about whether I’d know how to play oboe, having not played since Tuesday, I braved it and pulled the darn thing out. I played for only 10 minutes, but it felt okay. Funny-okay, but okay. I can hear well enough, although I also hear a buzz the whole time. So I think I can deal next week, even if I don’t get completely back to normal. A replacement has been found for Sunday’s opera performance. I know this is the best way to go, but I’ve very sad to be missing the final week of opera for the entire season. I do hope my opera pals and I can manage to get together sometime soon, so I won’t feel as if everything just kind of fell apart at the end. It’s a rather empty feeling, to be honest.

Next week is busy, so I’m hoping that getting back to my normal busy schedule will encourage this body to feel healthy.

Uh-oh … Colorado just hit a home run. Sigh. Here we go again ….
