I’ve Got the Moves Like Jagger

When I was growing up, I wanted to learn to play the violin. There was nothing I could do though. It was one of those situations where my parents pay, even for a rental on a violin, or we go without lunch or dinner. It was stupid expensive. So, I didn’t get to do it. Maybe if my parents had access to other programs, and maybe Encore Rewards – $10 off welcome coupon it would have helped. Probably not, though.

Madi has been talking about wanting to play. Her dad’s side of the family all did, and I’d love it if she had a chance. They start in fourth grade, I think. Maybe fifth.

Looking at MusicArts.com, I see that I have access to rentals, if I wanted. For an adult, a violin rental is only $29.95. That’s not bad. That’s a lot cheaper than it was when I was growing up. They have a lot of other types too. Trumpet, clarinet, flute.

I tried the flute in fourth grade. For someone who talks a lot, I sure didn’t have enough air to do it. I got dizzy. I tried the sax, and yeah, I nearly fell over, Laughing out loud. I tried the violin, though, and amazed my music teacher. I barely made a scratching sound, and she said it was as if it was made for me.

I really do wish I could have done violin.

I used my macro filters on my camera Open-mouthed smile I came out with some “decent” shots. Need to work on the focus. What looks crisp to me doesn’t always come out truly crisp Sad smile But I think I got some awesome bokeh!

A Piece of Me Missing

This was how we spent a nice chunk of yesterday. Today, not so much.

Today, Josh’s dad took the kiddos to Dave and Busters, and I floundered around. You’d think I’d know what to do with an empty home, but yeah, I had NO idea what to do. None whatsoever! Surprised smile It was weird.

I did a little simming. Okay, I attempted to. The tower just didn’t like it, and went VERY slow for times, and then speedy at other times. Something is going on with it, and I don’t know what Sad smile

I also did some dishes, and cleaned up the counters and table.

I also made a nice dinner, I think.

But today just felt off like crazy Sad smile
