It's not easy being a mezzo

I want to begin learning real pieces of music for a mezzo soprano. I've been looking online this evening and haven't been able to find many pieces, let alone books of mezzo soprano arias that interest me. Looking further, I realize that there really isn't a huge arena of opera parts for a mezzo soprano. Hm. I've been thinking lately that I want to pursue voice lessons and hopefully do some competitions and some performances - but as far as actually performing IN an opera...that doesn't interest me at this time. Even though I have an operatic voice - that doesn't mean I have to sing in an opera, does it?

This morning I woke up & took Anna to school, then came home and went back to bed. I woke up at 12:30pm...and was still tired. This is one crazy virus! There was a RS activity this morning at Jana's house, but I thought she'd appreciate my not bringing my virus over to share with everyone. Now that I'm not in school, I hope to be able to attend more RS functions during the day. :o)

I did some laundry & dishes today, plus packaged some eBay items I sold. My sweet husband mailed them for me. Tomorrow is his PRK surgery - prayers are appreciated! I think I'm more nervous about it than he is. As for leaving town on thursday - that's still the plan. Tyler says that whether we stay home or go to MI, he'll be feeling miserable - so he might as well be among friends - not to mention a doctor to check on his recovery (Thanks, Brad!) :o) Of course, we'll decide for sure after the surgery and his follow-up visit thursday whether or not to go.

I'm a Mezzo Soprano, too. I love Bist Du Bie Mir by Stozle.
