"High Priority"

That's the name of my brand spankin' new quartet. Our registration was approved, our money is paid, the harmony has officially BEGUN!! It is tres exciting.

In the sad/crappy news category is that someone I know has been a victim of domestic violence. She's okay, she has a support network (nowhere near here, which is good and bad), and how helpless do I feel. I've no experience at all with this (which I consider a blessing), but wish I could offer more help. I don't know if she knows yet what she's going to do.

I found out that if the police can't tell at the scene who is at fault in a domestic violence situation, both parties are taken to jail. So, she got beat up, *and* she gets to spend the night in jail.

Work is crazy and will be crazy until like, June 1st.

Got back from Pasadena ~ Sweet Adelines Region 21 Contest where my chorus hosted the other competing choruses & quartets. It was an amazing weekend. I spent the weekend at my brother's house, and got to hang out with a gal from the chorus 'cuz we drove together; which was also tres fun.

Planning a trip to N. California next... if I can get the 100+ pages of scrapping done.

Himself has painted the gargantuan shed (aka the man-cave) a very bright yellow. It's a bit "girly" - so we'll be changing that for a more sagey green color.

Life is good. I try very hard to remember that I'm not in control, and it helps.

Domestic Violence. Been there, suffered that, wore the bruises. Any man that treats his wife like that ought to be castrated with dull pinking shears. Other possible scenarios include being placed feet first into a giant ant hill.

Gob smacked at the audacity of the police to blame a woman. I mean... really!! Some things never change. Testosterone will side with other testosterone 99 per cent of the time.

I hope your friend is able to tough it out because once a person is in that situation, it's like a drug. Very complicated to explain but the dependency is high for that other person's approval and usually the victim has very low self worth. =/
