Denver!

We left home this morning a bit before 6. By lunch, we were checking into the hotel. I had booked a room at La Quinta for two nights, but I decided to stay only tonight and roll home after the audition tomorrow. We were happy to get into our room, turn on the air and contemplate what was for dinner. After I booted up the ever-present computer, I ordered pizza from Dominos. While we waited, I checked my grad class homework, and made sure everything was caught up. Dinner arrived in about 30 minutes, but it took a lot less time than that to eat it!

After the pizza was gone, Bela went into a pizza-induced coma. 🙂 It didn’t last long. We spent a (very) few minutes outside, then back into the cool room. I had to have a smoke break.

The plan for tonight is to get a good night’s sleep, have breakfast and head to Magness Arena mid-morning. I won’t post tomorrow, but I will do my best to post Sunday.

I have a special announcement at the end of this post, so keep reading. I know many of my Facebook friends read the first few lines of a blog post and comment there because it’s easy. I love that friends are reading my posts, but make sure to click on the post and go to the actual blog site or you might miss important information! You don’t have to comment on the blog if it’s a pain. I know I hate to sign in to leave a comment!

Ysabela loves to sing!

Ysabela loves to sing!

My friends already know that my Ysabela loves to sing—any time, any place. It’s what she does. Many of you do not know that I made her an account with The Voice. A few weeks ago I received an email “heads up” about coming auditions and the cities where people can go to try out. The producer will be making selections for call backs since the judges won’t be there. I discovered the closest place to us is Denver at Magness Arena. Ysabela will be trying out in June!

I have been pushing her to select her two songs and practice, practice, practice! (Nag, nag!) I don’t mean to nag, but I want her as ready as possible to do her very best. This is pretty much a one shot deal. If you would like to say a prayer for her, go right ahead. We’ll never turn those down. If you prefer to send warm fuzzy thoughts, we welcome those too!
