Here we are again, another exciting installment of…An Exciting Life. woo-hoo. We’re broke, please tip the writer-it’s only a fiver… Not much else going on-just trying to keep my head above water, hoping nothing happens to sink us. Our country is in odd turmoil-so much bad happening in D.C. and the media, but it’s like nothing is wrong on the streets (at least in Portland). That may change.
In a 2-day training, yawn. Had to be there at 7:30. More of a team building exercise. Gamelan-new piece. Easy bus ride, but so tired-I actually slept on the way in. Gonna play bass for choir-practice tonight. It was frustrating-my sight reading sucks, and the bass was tuned a half-step sharp. I got it going OK, but I’m better with a chart because I need to hit specific notes. Friday-trying to get back into it.
Home, worked out-not really up for it, ate late. I always get so tired on Friday nights. Woke up at 2 and at 7. A big crash on the road in front of our complex-many sirens, didn’t check it out until way after. Went practice driving with Matt, Gaffers in Tigard, Cabelas, home, C is at his gf’s. Church Sun, switched to Sprint, new phones for everyone, setup, M to libe, cook dinner, w/o-fatigued, dinner. E has tummy troubles-this is never-ending, and given our broken healthcare industry, has the possibility of breaking us.
Monday, up, the iPad is missing! Looked around, E is going to look. I know I had it Sun. am while I was eating breakfast. UPDATE: I put it in my leather computer backpack… Weds., money woes, need to chart the choir pieces, gamelan tonight. Making progress on the project. Got my phone loaded up with music. Now for the other thing-didn’t work the way I want it…got another app. Restless sleep. Got up early-ish, to work early-ish, home early-ish? That would be nice. Choir tonight-busy charting the songs. Gonna record so I can practice against it. Did ok-another piece coming.
Sat. am, trying to clean-kitchen done, 1 load of wash, bathrooms next. Need to practice. W/o last night-I’m making progress, and I think my belly is shrinking. Cleaned all day Sat., church-song went well, played for the postlude too. Libe, shop, home, w/o, dinner, playing around on the web late, bed, up but tired. Rioting, uh, “high spirits”, after Philly won the Super Bowl.
Links. brighter side: I need to look some up…OK-found one. No, two. Woman Finds The Boy Who Was Secretly Hugging Her Dog, happify.com.
