Tuesday 9-18

I still have the cold.  It hasn't gone away yet.  I am hoping that by the end of this week, I will be cold-free again.  I sure hope so anyways.

Next week is the season premieres of NCIS and NCIS Los Angeles.  I can't wait to see them!  I love those shows so much.  I am glad that Dance Moms is over because I like that show too, despite its craziness or maybe because of its craziness and they are all on the same day and the same time.  I mean, seriously?????  At least the new season starts next week.  I can't wait and neither can my student, Samantha.  She and I are both NCIS and NCIS Los Angeles fans.  They are interesting shows even though at first I thought I wouldn't like them.  My brother is the one who got me into liking the show.

I haven't had too many bad headaches so far this week.  I am not sure if it because of the medicine I am taking because of the cold or what, but it hasn't been too bad so far.  I have the regular everyday headache, but I can function mostly with that one.  I hope it stays away or at least until this cold is over.

I had a few lessons today.  My Sammy was absent as she has the flu.  I sure hope she feels better soon because having the flu is not fun.  It is so much worse than a cold.  Amy, one of the new adults, is doing very well.  She started reading music today.  I think she is doing really well.  Dan, my other new young man, is also doing pretty well.  He had lessons before but he had to quit.  He is slowly remembering his note names and finding his hand positions.  I think in a few more weeks, he will be more comfortable with his music.  He is also one of my shy boys.  Dan is not sure he wants to be in the Christmas Concert, which I told him was perfectly fine.  If he wants to be in it, fine, if not, that is okay too.  For me, the concerts and competitions are not required, they are extras if they want to be in them or not.  Aubrey is ready for her next level book.  It is amazing.  She is heading for level 3 and she only started last December of 2011.  I am very happy with her progress.  Aubrey is an amazing pianist.  She really is.  Tomorrow, I have a few lessons so it will be a good day.  I am rather tired tonight so i am hoping for a good nights (or at least as good as I get) sleep.  I did make a mistake of taking the nighttime headache medicine, Advil PM, and the nighttime cold medicine on Saturday night.  I went to bed about midnight and woke up at about 3 in the afternoon.  It was 2:50 pm as a matter of fact.  Yes, 10 minutes before Becca's lesson.  wow, I haven't made the mistake again nor will I.

I have several new to me books from the used bookstore.  I bought them a few weeks ago.  I am currently reading Danielle Steel.  I do like most of her books.  There is only the odd one that I don't care for.  I just finished the O'Malley series by Dee Henderson.  I simply love those books.  They are filled with action but also with wonderful relationships between the characters.  The main characters are orphans who met at a group home and became a family of their own.  They picked a new last name for them all and as each of them turned 18, they legally changed their name to O'Malley.  I love the books too.  I am missing one book, so I will get it hopefully soon.  I have 6 of the 7 books.  I need the 4th book.


  1. I'm not familiar with the O'Malley books but they sound interesting and just the type of thing I would like! I'll keep my eyes out for #4.
    Is Mark Harmon still on the NCIS? I had a huge crush on him back in the day...;j

    1. yes Joanne! Mark Harmon is still on NCIS. He is still rather hot! I love that show!!!!

  2. I've never read Danielle Steel, though I'm always meaning to give them a try. Must get round to it. Feel better soon! :)
