...coming to our house.
No, not the two-legged type. Not the four-legged type. Not of the structural type. This is in the form of a new woodwind.
My husband and oldest went to the band meeting last night and got the child all signed up. They came home terribly excited and talked up a blue streak. The local music store offers "rental" on student band instruments, however, it is highway robbery, as my husband put it. We had pretty much decided before this meeting, that Josh would play his dad's old sax, and dad would get a new one (my hubby plays in a local civic band and has for about 22 years). So the search for the new sax began.
Mike was actually going to settle for a cheaper model, but he plans to play in this band until he rolls over in his grave (my words, not his), so I told him to get a really good horn that was reasonably priced. I actually am the one who found this one.
Hubby is one happy camper and is ordering it today.
Hubby is going to Scotland the end of this month on business. This is the trip that we've known about for a while, but thought was cancelled. So I'll be single-parenting for the last week. And it's the week of mid-terms.
Pray for me.
I am planning a "trip with the girls" in November. Should be loads of fun and I'm terribly excited.
Thanks to those who shared helpful hints on geography/map reading. Matt is doing a bit better with that, thanks to your help.
I have preschool open house with the youngest today. It'll be a really good time. He is so terribly excited, he can't stand it.
I am glad it's Friday. It has been hell week trying to get things done for the "back to school" time.
It's good to be back on LJ on a regular basis. I've missed you all alot.
(I like bouncy!Hugh, don't you? He's quite yummy!)
