Trying something new--more frequent updates!
My goal is to post at least once a week as a way to keep a journal of my life and the happenings up here. So far, that plan has failed.
Anyway, the week looking back:
Today was fun--the choir had our big celebration/advent kickoff today. I had a lot of fun and am particularly happy that we don't have this to worry about in the later holiday season. The piece we did was challenging, but I like that my brain is being forced to go in different directions than usual. Music, particuarly when you're average, can be challenging! I feel like the other choir members are all ex-choir directors and professional musicians (while this isn't true of ALL of them, many certainly are!). But, it just gives me incentive to push myself harder. It's OK to be average among greatness I say.
Yesterday was amazing house-cleaning, fall/winter-preparation day. We insulated the attic (involving a rented truck from Lowe's, a machine that chops the insulation up and spews it all around the attic, and 20 bags of insulation!), miles vacuumed the yard (yes, that's right...to clean up all the gunk from the machine), we cleaned the house, I INSTALLED A NEW THERMOSTAT!! (i'm really proud of that one...we now have an automatic thermostat that is on a schedule!), put up holiday lights (to be turned on in 1 week), and worked on a few items from our to-do list. Of course, the list is never-ending, but we crossed off a couple things!
I also finished a gift for tarakins, but more on that later :)
Friday, miles got back from being in Indianapolis for job training. it was good having him back. turns out i missed him!
Tues & Weds & Thurs were pretty uneventful. Ditto last Monday. I've been trying, and failing, to work ahead on classwork. However, the end is in sight! Then next semester starts!! I'm excited for the course offerings next semester, so that's fine by me. Should be a good time.
