lagging way way way way way way behind

Ah well, the best laid plans, huh? Just a couple of weeks ago I said I was determined to work through the backlog of projects and get myself caught up. I was going great guns, too. Then suddently my Dad got seriously ill and was hospitalized... and I dropped everything to go up there and be with my step-mom & visit with my Dad. Just got back after a week away, and am still pretty tired... and I have a huge list of things to work on.

Yesterday, I did do the back-up vocals for 'Walkin to Nashville' - posted on soundclick at: I'd thankfully managed to get them a piano track before things fell apart last weekend.

Here's a list of the projects I'm currently working on, besides catching up with my students...

Besides this I'm supposed to be preparing repertoire for my new duo. It's a big list but I know if I put my energy to it I can get these things done. In the meantime, I can't really - as much as I would like to - take on anything else! Easy to say, harder to do, when there's so many great folks out there with inspiring projects to work on!
