New calling

I almost forgot to post what my new calling is. When I found out that I was being released from Primary I told Michael that I hoped I would be asked to do something soon. I was worried that they would wait until after the baby was born. I told him I didn't really care what it was so long as it wasn't scouting or ward music director. I know better than to say things like that, it always bites me later. A couple of hours after being released I was asked to be the ward music director. I don't have to lead the music during Sacrament Meeting but I do pick the songs. This is the part that I'm looking forward to. The part I'm not looking forward to is conducting the ward choir. I am not my mother; this is not my forte. Of course I said yes, but screamed in my head, "NOOOOOO" (imagine the echoing scream you hear in horror movies). I feel very inadequate; we'll see how it goes. Wish me luck. At least it isn't scouting!

That's so funny! You should know better than to say what calling you do or don't want, it happens every time. :) You will be so great as music director. And I hear ya about scouting, you definitely got the easier job.

I really liked scouts. Except for one dreadful year, I couldn't wait for some of them to have a birthday and get OUT of my group. But most of the time it was great!

You'll do great! Even if you don't have ALL your mom's musical skills and talents, you still have your mom to call for advice. And I know you have SOME of her musical skills and talents. ;)
