Silence - and Laughter

It's NEVER quiet in here. NEVER! At least not during the work day.

Yup, I'm at my desk, it's near noon, and it's quiet. I'M LOVING IT! I can't even begin to explain how wonderful it is...well, wonderful enough to blog about if that tells you anything.

We're in the midst of planning a really big conference starting on Sunday. I am consumed with it all and will be staying in a hotel in my own town several nights next week just to make sure that I'm not too far away to tap in case of emergency. And it's inevitable that I will be tapped.

But right now? The stars have aligned and my phone isn't ringing and no one is asking me a million questions and it's great.

Oh, and the laughter part?

American Idol Rewind keeps calling me today, trying to get in touch with my brother. Several years ago, he made the decision to "follow his dreams" (hmm) and actually made it on the show. Now they want to find him and have him re-hash the experience for a "Where are they now?" sorta thing that some people [small voice]like me[/small voice] watch in the middle of the night each and every time it comes on.

Who knows what he'll decide. Maybe he didn't get his full 15 minutes out of Access Hollywood, The Big Idea, and whatever weekly entertainment magazine that was [/jealousy?]. I guess we just wait and see.

In the mean time, I'll just sit here and soak it all in and work on my own future claim to fame.

BTW, thanks for the kind, understanding messages. I really appreciate it.

hooray for silence! I don't know what to do with myself when my house is quiet, haha!

Good luck with work this week! :)
