Thursday, April 12

It is almost mid April.  Can you imagine?  In Michigan, that means anything as far as the weather is concerned.  For example, last week it was in the 70s and sunshine, beautiful weather, Tuesday?  It was snowing and in the 30s.  We have had frost warnings the last few nights.  Now, I don't have any plants that need to be covered up, but many I know do.

It has been an okay day today.  I had a few lessons and choir practice.  I am not sure if I am going to sing with choir on Sunday because I will have at that point, have had no pain medicine but Tylenol for one week and I don't know how that is going to be.  Tomorrow my tummy medicine and my blood thinner medicine must stop too.  I am nervous about that tummy medicine stopping.  i am not sure what will happen and how many tummy symptoms will return.  After being ill last weekend, I am nervous about this coming weekend.  I am praying it won't be too bad.  That is the best I can do.

I don't have to teach this Saturday, which is unusual.  I usually have 1 lesson to teach but not this week.  I will miss Camille but she is unavailable for lessons this week.  She is such a wonderful student.  I do have Emily and Natalie tomorrow along with my Calli and Acer.  Saturday night I am having a couple of friends coming over to play games.  It should be rather fun, I think.  My friend, Mani is coming.  I don't know if he is bringing a friend with him or not but I haven't seen him in about 10 years.  We reconnected on face book.  I had often wondered about him over the years but I lost his address and his phone number.  I am not sure if Star is coming.  I hope so.  I will need to pick her up though since she doesn't drive yet, but I certainly don't mind at all or I wouldn't have invited her.  She wasn't feeling too well today but I am hoping Saturday will be better for her.  Kelly Lynn is not available because she is helping her older sister move this weekend so maybe next time.  I am anxious to see Mani and find out how he is doing.  I went to college with him so I have known him since fall of 1988.  Wow, that is about 23 1/2 years at this point.  The first day i met him was in Marching Band practice.  He said he was 26 and his name was Scott.  I had just met Julie and we so believed him.  Well, we soon found out he was just teasing.  He was really about a year or two older than me (I was 20 at the time) and his name was actually Manvydas, otherwise known as Mani.  Now he goes by Monty, but I have trouble remembering that.  I don't know if he minds being called Mani or wants to be called Monty.  It is really hard to say.  I just can't wait to see him until Saturday.

I need to change the table cloth this weekend too.  I have a beautiful spring table cloth.  I like the Easter one, but since Easter was Sunday, well, it is time to change it.  I got the spring table cloth when I bought the Easter one.  I got them from JoAnn's near my house.  I like that store.  Mom and I used to call it the dangerous store.  Another dangerous store is the bookstore.  Yup, both were dangerous for us to go in because we always spent way more money than we should whenever we were in one.  Mom was just as bad as me in either store.  When we were in the bookstore, she would find books that I might like.  She would be like, what about this one?  Same with the piano music store.  I sure miss shopping with Mom.  Well, I miss everything about Mom, truth be told.  I just miss her a lot.  I haven't gone to the JoAnn's store too much because I am not into sewing at this point.  I love to sew, but right now I am working on other projects.  I do have the material I will be using for next Christmas presents for my students.  I just couldn't sew this year.  Because I sewed with Mom a lot, I am having a lot of trouble sewing again.  It is just really hard to sew and not think too much of Mom.  Anyways, I should be okay by this coming Christmas.

Tomorrow I am getting up early because Mariela is coming to vacuum and clean the kitchen and bathrooms.  I am going to read some more and then go to bed.  I hope tomorrow is good for you.
