Since I said so much below, an update…
Christine and I had *that talk*. Turned out OK… we realize that I was tossed into this without all the prep in the world, and that we need to have a voice workshop to iron out all the little problems that were building up into that big ball o’frustration you saw below.
And I found out that what I was seeing as micromanagement, Christine thought were simply communication with the Voice person — since we never established that, though, I didn’t know that. And I found out that I’m not nearly as knowledgeable as I’d like to think I am… 🙂
So I’m in a much better place emotionally now than I was before — especially since discovering that Christine saw the same problems with my participation in practice, but thought that I was handling them. 🙂 I’m going to skip a couple practices, then come only when the focus will be voice-related stuff.
We shall see… but it looks a lot more positive now.
