a quiet day

Not much going on this afternoon here in the Paxton residence.  I am going to go and get the two boxes that the decorations need to go into.  I finally am feeling well enough to do that.  I am sad to see the stuff go away for another year, but also glad because it has been a rather sad season for me.  I am thankful for my family and friends who helped me get through it especially Kathy, as I was lucky enough to be included in her Christmas Eve and Day with her family.  It was so fun.  I really loved watching the kids be all excited about what they got.  The older ones, the younger ones, it doesn't matter, it is very exciting.  I loved what I got too.  Kathy will be coming soon and she and I will be spending some of those beautiful gift cards!

I have a busier week coming up now that I have 2 new students, 1 from this past Saturday and another new 1 this Saturday.  I also have my Muglia girls tomorrow so that is just awesome.  Ooh, I just remembered I need to put their stuff at the front door so I don't forget it.  Be right back.  There, now in order to get out the front door, I need to move that stuff.  With brain fog, I have to be creative at times because I am not the most awake first thing in the morning.  I am excited to see them as they haven't had a lesson since November.  I did see them at the Christmas Concert and they played very well, but it isn't the same as the one on one time I get with them at a lesson.  I can't wait to see what they got for Christmas.  They got me a wonderful Harry Potter Ornament, Hermione.  I just love harry potter.  I am hoping to see the movie again sometime soon as I was very sad when I first saw it and can't really remember too much of what happened.  I am anxious for the next one to come out though.  We have so long to wait for it.  I also have the newest twilight movie to watch.  I had been waiting to watch it with Kathy, but she has already seen it.  I may still wait and watch it with her, it depends on my mood on when I want to watch it.  I find I don't watch a lot of TV or movies anymore now that Momma isn't here.  I don't know if it is because I am just not interested in a lot of things, or I am liking the peace and quiet I have.  Hard to say and depends on the day.  I used to prefer peace and quiet when I taught all afternoon and evening because I had so much noise while I was teaching.  I also like the soothing sound of the fish tank.  That soothes my mind and my soul so maybe that is it.

I am looking forward to the week too because I will be meeting with a friend on Thursday at Tim Horton's at lunch time.  I haven't seen Maria in a while.  It will be nice to speak with her.  I am going to be emailing my lawyer the rest of the pages today too so that will keep me busy.  I like busy days.  I am still rather tired from the cold, but I am feeling much better now than I was a few days ago.  it is almost gone.  Thank goodness.  These things sure wipe a person out.  Thankfully, I didn't get a flare up with it.  I was afraid I would, but i didn't this time.  I must have rested enough to miss it.  The new pain medicine doesn't seem to work as well as the darvocet did, but since I can't take vicodin, I am rather stuck with it.  It works okay, not great, but okay.  I am stiffer at night and I find if I take the medicine about 1/2 hour to 1 hour before I go to bed it helps me sleep a lot better than taking it and heading right into bed.

I have a package of music to put together this week for the newest student.  I am going to copy some stuff for her and make a CD because she is really just trying out the lessons to see if she will like them and practice.  I am hoping she will stay.  Kayla was worried about what would happen at the end of the month, and was relieved to find that her time will stay her time, there is no time limit.  A happy girl that one is.  So nice to work with a happy girl.

Anyways, this week shall be good, i think.  I am getting over the cold.  I am off to undecorate the living room now.  I hope you have a good rest of the day!
