Amanda’s SD Concert Calendar 8/19-8/25

Posted on by .

I had a wonderful but exhausting weekend doing horse related things. I might not have much of a brain when I write this so please check back for updates. I also managed to hurt my neck by sitting on the couch so it’s been a great Sunday evening.

This is also my birthday week. I’d say I’m excited but that would be a lie. I have zero plans to do anything other than the usual jazz and that’s fine by me. Maybe when I hit 35 I’ll make a fuss but that’s a few years off so I have time…
