A Run Down of my Week

This week:

The baby (does he still look like a baby?) had what I think will be his last band concert ever.  He's moving on to greener pastures...or rather, wooden pastures.  He's trading in his french horn for a basketball...too hard to do both in high school next year (both are year round with lots of weekend commitments...gotta do homework in there, too!) and he sorta lost steam in the musical world this year.  

Ready for my moment?  At his concert (which I was at alone because that guy that I like so much is quite literally working 60 hour weeks currently) the band director, after the band (have I mentioned that it was a middle school concert?) played a particular rousing rendition of Bohemian Rhapsody, stood up and kinda teary eyed said 'every time they play that it transports me to a different place...' ...and I LAUGHED OUT LOUD.

Middle school bands transport me somewhere else, too.  Just not sure it's my happy place.  Just saying'.


I had a free one hour massage this week, thanks to the fact that I referred a patient to my chiropractor.


I'm more than willing to refer others if it means another morning spent being pampered.

My car had a massage, too, though I had to pay for hers.  Fortunately I was in the heart of Santa Ana for work and it was $30 cheaper than my I sprung for lunch for her and I too.  A quart of oil for her; a salad from Boudin for me.

Thanks to a juicy recommend, I am reading a rather ummmmm, interesting new trilogy.  

The house is a wreck.  Boys are hungry.  Laundry is piled up.

And I am so engrossed that I don't care.  
(It's currently #1 on the NY Times best seller list and COMPLETELY inappropriate.  COMPLETELY.  Now excuse me while I go finish the chapter...)


Confirmation for Boy #3 is wrapping up.  Whew.  He had a mid-week meeting, so up to Long Beach we drove for church, stopping at Chik-Fil-A on the way.  Yum to both the food and the extra time alone in the car with one of my boys...and yum to mid week Lenten services.

I love this place (and it will always be our 'home'), but I am ready to be worshipping under one roof with my family again.

And yesterday?  I was invited to come and 'give a talk' to a class at a major university (go Bruins!) in LA on blogging followed by a question and answer period.   There were four of us bloggers there and what they failed to tell me was that it was for journalism students (an auditorium FULL of them)...journalism students who got to read blogs all semester for a grade.

I so wanna take that class...pretty sure I'd have passed that one!



  1. You never know...your youngest shrub may return to music some time in his future. Kate took a break during the year she was in England and came back with no plans to continue in music. Now she is a music major...go figure. She will happily sing her way through Europe for three weeks during May and early June. She is in Eric Whitacre's new virtual choir, so I can't wait to see the final product in early April :)

  2. I bet I know what you are reading! Let me know how it is---I don't want to buy it unless I know I'll like it.
