Today is a beautiful day.....warm, sunny, and breezy. I am so excited about hanging clothes on the clothesline, which means I need to get a life.
DD is starting her 4th year as a docent at the local historical society museum today. She loves doing this job and enjoys learning about the different exhibits. My son is working today, other non child of mine is off on an overnight trip and hubby is working....I'M HOME ALONE! I guess you would consider it alone there are 4 dogs in the house watching every move I make in case I accidentally drop a piece of this pasta I'm eating. I can still turn the music up and sing as loud as I want to, the puppies haven't figured out how to howl yet so I should be good there. I'm opening all the doors and windows so the birds and the deer can hear me too. The neighbors are a little far away to hear me, though they used to be able to hear my sons band when they practiced in the basement. They said from their house it was just a dull roar that they couldn't hear unless they were outside. Lucky them, the boys practiced right under my bed room. Drum set, 2 crate half stack amps and guitars, one bass guitar and lots of "singing." I don't know if I have ever mentioned that my son is a good singer. He didn't sing for their band, but he was Conrad birdie in Bye bye birdie at the high school and was the scarecrow in the Wizard of oz. This week he started piano lessons. Next week he adds voice. It was just something he always wanted to do and now he is going to try it for awhile. I think it will be great over the summer when he has no classes.
This may shock you (Kim) but after months of planning, weeks of trying on prom dresses and finally finding the right one. Shopping endlessly for shoes and finally having to order them, getting the right necklace and earrings and hours spent researching hair styles and hundreds of dollars spent and my DD isn't going to the prom. Prom boy got back with his ex girlfriend and things just went downhill from there. It started with "well we both have other dates so if you will just find another ride home from prom so I can take her home." Ok DD was fine with that one. Then it went to "what hairstyle are you getting because girlfriend doesn't want to have the same one." Ok..... then it went to "Would you just come to grand march and then go home?" Uh No! Definately not spending another hundred dollars on hair, nails etc. for 15 minutes and a couple of pictures. She had another boy ask her to another prom and she may go with him just for the fun of it. I think I am getting a migrane.
