Tuesday, 1-3

It was a rather busy day today.  I had to go and pick up some music for my students.  While I was there I had to order some music because they were out.  I don't need them until next week, but I had hoped to have it all in order by this weekend.  I do hope the music comes in soon.  After teaching, I went to a meeting with the subdivision.  I am on the board of directors of my homeowners association.  It is fun and I get to see my neighbors.  I had no idea where the house was tonight though so I had to call my other neighbor.  I had the address, but I couldn't see the addresses at night.  I did find it though thanks to Barbara Jean.  She was walking over to the house and I could see her.  Silly me!  Next month the meeting is at my house.  I don't usually volunteer but the house is coming along so well that I am proud to have my neighbors come over.  I will put the leaves in the dining room table to have enough seats for everyone.  I think there are 2 folding chairs in the furnace room.  I know I have two more.  I am hoping that the dining room chairs are fixed by then.  I just thought about that.  That is another 3 chairs.  I should have enough by then.  We did decide to have a block party this year.  We even picked a date for it and a back up date incase of rain.  I haven't been to a block party since I was a child.  I was never really interested as a young adult, but I think it would be fun this year.

I have another busy day tomorrow.  I am looking forward to being busier than I used to be.  I have plenty of time to rest included though so I pace myself very well.  So far, it is working out quite well.  I have my lessons with rests in between.  Yes, it takes up potential lesson time, but since I only teach a few, it is okay.  I am not going to fill that time up anyway so it works out for me.  I am almost up to my limit of what I can take for teaching.  I won't go over it because that would be too much for me.  I get exhausted so quickly and then I don't feel very well either so that would be bad.  Once that cycle starts, oh my, then the ER visits kick in.  I am just not going to go there this year if I can help it.  i don't want to get into that crash and burn cycle again.  I really don't.  It is such a hard thing to deal with when it happens.

I am watching Extreme Couponing All Stars.  It is insane.  They take two extreme couponer and have them compete against each other.  They have 30 minutes to shop and whoever has the highest percent of savings wins.  I am amused by these shows for some reason.  At least these shows benefit the food banks so that is really good.  I don't usual have good luck with many coupons because quite often the sale prices are often lower than what I have for a coupon.  They can even pre-order the items.  Usually, the coupon shopper takes almost all day to shop and go through the check out.  I have even watched episodes where they have to break up their order into 35 little orders.  I don't know why, but they are entertaining to me.

Anyways, some shows are just crazy and entertaining all at the same time.  I often have the TV on at night while I am on the computer.  I don't know if I can just sit and watch TV and not do anything.  i plan to get a couple of sewing projects in order for next Christmas.  I plan to go to the Mary Maxim store this month to get a few kits.  I have to replace the kits that were donated without me knowing.  I don't need as many, but I do want a couple.  I will only get a couple at a time.  I love sewing.  I hope I can sew after I get them.  I was unable to make my students' presents because every time I went to sew, I would remember how mom and I sewed together and that would make me cry so I am going to start small with these kits.

I hope your day was good too.

  1. About 11 years ago I gave birth to my lovely son. Within a day, I had sharp pain in my neck and shoulder, and I haven't had a pain free day since. I developed postpartum depression and IBS within a few weeks, and those symptoms have fluctuated since. My doctors are thinking fibromyalgia.
