It has been raining all day. Yup, ALL day! With lovely thunder and lightening with it. So lovely! I woke up to thunder and lightening and I will probably go to bed to thunder and lightening. The rain itself isn't so bad, it is needed usually, but it has been raining so much this season. There is a lot of flooding in people's houses. Fortunately, where I am, we haven't had that problem, and I hope we never do. I am cold today too because the temperature has dropped a bit. You would think that at 73 degrees in the house I would be warm enough. NOT! I have my Tinkerbell Fleece jacket. I am just so cold today. I get cold so easy. It seems the older I get the easier it is for me to get cold. I carry a jacket with me in the summer because I am often cold in the air conditioning. Mom used to do the same thing and now so do I. It is kind of funny now. I have never been so cold until these last few winters. The doctor says it is because of the blood thinners I have to take. Before that I was hot all the time. It is because I have such thin blood now or so I am told. I believe it. After the blood clot, I began being cold easily. Anyways, i have adorable fleeces and hoodies to wear so I am fine.
I realized this afternoon that I spend an awful lot of money going out to eat. I will be cutting way back on that. I could have paid a few bills with the money I spend. I know at times I have to leave the house because I am going stir crazy, but those days are not as often as they used to be. Since summer is traditionally lower income because of students who stop for the summer and many vacations, I have to tighten the belt a bit more. This is the way to do it. I feel really good about this decision. I will be able to get through financially speaking, to fall where lessons traditionally pick up. September and January are when new students start. yes, there are the students who start other times, but the bulk of new students happen then.
My little guy, Carson, had the stomach flu today so he had to cancel lessons. Poor guy, that is just no fun. Beth had her lesson though. She was about 15 minutes late because of the weather. I actually expected it because of the weather. We lost power a few times for a few minutes each time, but that was about it. I am hoping that we won't lose power anymore with the storms that are supposed to be here tonight, all day and night tomorrow, and during the day of Friday. I think I will be hiding inside from the storms these next few days. I did go out this afternoon in between storms for lunch and then I realized, I have lunch ingredients in the house. I have good buns, yogurt, cereal, soups, why did I feel the need to go and Burger King? Really? What was I thinking. I wasn't, that's what. i just went out of habit. It is a bad habit that I will be working on. I have really good soup here at home. I also have yummy yogurt that I love but still, I went out for junk. I will work on this.
Anyways, Beth is getting ready for her audition for the Music Man on June 12. She is doing very well. She knows the songs pretty well and is really working hard. I am so pleased on this. Tomorrow is Breanna's and Amanda's lessons. I am looking forward to them. Bre takes both piano and voice and Amanda takes voice. Amanda is stopping for the summer but I think Breanna is continuing except for when she is on vacation. I think so anyways.
Richard will not be coming for Andrew's graduation. I am disappointed but there isn't I can do about it. Maybe I should have waited to ask him. I am not even sure that the graduation is on that day. Andrew hasn't given me the exact details.
