Cello Love

Today was intense, with my day off work I had already scheduled so that I could take my mid-terms, except it turned into a snow day and time with the kids was more important. We played hard, making a hot breakfast, putting away laundry and doing chores, making vegetable soup, and running in the snow. We had such fun!

During quiet time, with the babies in naps and the older kids settled with a movie, I did get to finish a 35 page paper, but I did not get to my mid-terms.

I could have skipped FHE, but it was most important and we are committed to that, so we had our lesson and then gathered for our Monday night musical.

Once the kids were in bed, I could have worked a little on mid-terms, but that’s not where my heart was or what my soul needed.

I needed my cello.

I missed it so much last week with court, and always miss it on my overnights away at the hospital. That was the most days I haven’t practiced since I got the cello! I was so glad to finally sit down tonight and practice again!

You guys! I played for over an hour!

It sings to my bones, I am telling you!

I love it so much!

Tonight I finished my first two beginner books, and added two more Christmas carols I am working on.

I really, really love it so much, I do!

About Emily

I am a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints since 2009. I serve as a Chaplain, and work as a counselor. I got bilateral cochlear implants in 2010, but will always love sign language. I choose books over television, and organics over processed. Nothing is as close to flying as ballroom dancing - except maybe running, when in the solo mood. I would rather be outside than anywhere else, especially at the river riding my bike or kayaking. PhD in Marriage and Family Therapy, and currently doing a post-doc in Jewish Studies and an MDiv in Pastoral Counseling. The best thing about Emily World is that it's always an adventure, even if (not so) grammatically precise. The only thing better than writing is being married to a writer. Nathan Christensen and I were married in the Oklahoma City temple on 13 October 2012, and have since fostered more than eighty-five children. We have adopted the six who stayed, and are totally and completely and helplessly in love with our family. Nathan writes musical theater, including "Broadcast" (a musical history of the radio) and an adaption of Lois Lowry's "The Giver". He served his mission in South Korea, has taught song-writing in New York City public schools, and worked as a theater critic for a Tucson newspaper.
