We went to Jazz's winter concert tonight - it was AWESOME. No really. The kids sounded phenomenal. Jazz is in advance band this year and it just warms my heart to see how much he's grown both as a musician and as a person. I taped their performance, but I have no idea when I'll … Continue reading Appreciating Another Winter Concert
I'm kidding, of course. For those out there that don't have a sense of humor. You know who you are. Jazz's driving "lessons" are going well. He's catching on pretty quickly. We're still having trouble staying in the lane - he tends to drive on the edge of the road, which makes me ride on … Continue reading Driving Lesson … Hey! Don’t Hit That Kid! They’re Not Worth Very Many Points
Jazz had a buddy from school come over yesterday so they could finish up a project for their Earth Science class. They built a structure that is supposed to withstand a rocking table for two minutes. In other words, a structure that can withstand an adolescent earthquake. They were given some wooden rods, glue and … Continue reading Busy Weekend – Actually, It Wasn’t. It Only Felt That Way Because We Normally Just Veg Out
I'm tired. But what else is new. I'm going to Harrison on Friday. As in Arkansas. I know you're silently screaming FOR THE LOVE OF GOD, KAREN, WHY?!?! I'll answer that silent scream with, "Because I opened my big, fat mouth and volunteered to learn outlying clinics and *POOF* they took me up on it … Continue reading OMG. I’m So Boring. All I Ever Do is Work, Eat and Sleep – Not Necessarily in That Order
Someone linked to a Zumba video that was playing this song on Facebook today - I've been jamming ever since. Listen to this song and tell me you're not shaking your booty, or wagging a finger at least. (Click the blue arrow to play) If you're not, then you're lying. Or dead. Or a dead … Continue reading Pause is An Awesome Song – Also? Sleep is Pretty Awesome, Too
Jazz has been banished to the garage. He was getting on my nerves and I couldn't take it anymore. I'm sure he's hot and it's stuffy out there but TOO BAD - feel the wrath of MOM. Okay, not really. He IS out in the garage, but we had nothing to do with it. He's … Continue reading Band, Podcast, Pushy Parents
(Not my eye. Click on it for credit). Good grief, this day passed in a blur. I dug my heels in and answered ALL of my emails (well, almost, I got a few more just now, but those are going to have to wait until the morning because my brain? It's mush[ier] than usual). In … Continue reading At the Moment …
Now all we need is for the weather to cool down so we can eat on our patio. And yes, Kevin is cooking. Are you kidding me? The man could be on the Food Network, he's THAT good. Me? I prepare the food for him to cook and then wash dishes. That's my job.
I recorded this little blurb for my in-laws over the weekend. It's a phone message to try and encourage people to join their Reliv business. They thought I had a good voice for this sort of thing. *pause* I think they need to change the batteries in their hearing aids. HAHAHA! (Kidding. Sort of).
