Hmm!! It would seem the last two day's posts are hung up in space, somewhere between my phone and my blog!
I have to get MyFavoriteKid out the door this morning to a practice SAT thing-a-majig, but when I get back to my laptop, I'll work out the kinks.

Home last night from concert and picking up MyFavoriteKid from his band competition around 11:30pm, asleep by 12 midnight.
Alarm went off at 5:45am and we were back at the high school by 7am for today's competition.
I am wiped.
MyFK is more wiped.
Only 1 more week of Winter Drumline season, with one last competition next Saturday (the Championship Finals).
Fuzzy phone photos from today.
First up: One school's routine was set to a medley Bugs Bunny tunes.
Complete with Silly Wabbit.
Our crews today....first our B-Line
Sorry for the lousy pics. I forgot my real camera. Only had my phone. And these kids move around too much!!
Exhausted. Off to bed.
Little shindig at TheNewDiggs tomorrow, and I have to get up early to hostess!

It has been a very long time since I have bought a pair of shoes (which for me is just A SHOE) that is this girly.
Of course when I took this photo in the light of day, I failed to get the heel in the shot, but it's just a little short one or one and a half inch thing. That, however, is usually too much for me! Just about ANY heel doesn't work for me when I'm using crutches (I usually lurch forward and feel like I am going to fall smack on my face) but somehow, this one works! I'm tickled, and feel like I can go play dress up now :-)

I just finished watching this movie about dancer and choreographer Pina Bausch. Nothing short of riveting and inspirational. It is clear to me that she has influenced a few choreographers I have worked with before. It is so much fun to watch movement go to unexpected places. I couldn't take my eyes away from the screen.
If you're into dance, give it a little look-see. Streamable on Netflix ;-)

YeOldHaus.....peach and cherry blossoms, yard is alive with birds.
I'd put out a "Beware of Cats" sign for them, but I don't think they'd read it.
I've never done this before, but this might be the year I "bell the cat" and attach something noisy to their collars (at least during the daytime).
They are gonna be so pissed.

Wow, today was productive, and we didn't even plan for it to be.
The only real thing on the books today was recovering from (danged stupid, if you ask me) Daylight Savings Time, and then MyFavoriteKid had a private drum lesson followed by some time with his girlfriend.
TheMostImportantGuy had the whole day free, and believe me, we probably could have spent it just laying around relaxing...but instead we decided on a whim to clean out the garage at TheNewDiggs. There was one corner of it still holding left over construction materials from last summer's bathroom remodel, including the old toilet and shower door. There was also a bunch of random things that we'd set aside for the garage sale that we'll probably never have.
We pulled it all out, then we called our regular guy for odd jobs and hauling, and lo and behold, he was free to do it today (I figured we'd call and make a plan for sometime during the week...but same day service! woohoo!).
By the end of the day he had hauled away the junk and agreed to get the stuff that could be re-purposed into a salvage yard. He also got rid of some debris left behind in the back forty, which now makes the property looking quite spic and span! Then TheMIG and I hauled some of the smaller usable items over to Goodwill. Before we left I got out the shop vac and cleaned the whole place spic and span.
All done. One afternoon. Pretty great.
And now we get to chip away at the garage at YeOldHouse, which will NOT be a one day task, I am sure. But I am hoping bit by bit we'll have it under raps just as easily. We're going to have to. Because eventually I'm outta here!

Ye Old Haus doesn't have a covered porch or any coverage from rain whatsoever in the back yard. In the front of the house, there is really only a covered stoop. The front of the house is pretty danged exposed to the street, and this a tight community where everybody waves at each other as they drive by.
But I needed to be outside if I was going to work on the flowers, and I needed to wear the crazy ventilator mask if I was to be safe. So click that last link to see what my face would look like (what little of it you can see), and then picture me sitting here:
I have gone from being that one legged lady that lives in the blue house to being that nutty one legged lady that sits on her stoop in the rain wearing a ventilator and burning little bits of something, making I dont know what, while blasting NPR podcasts like WaitWaitDon'tTellMe and Fresh Air.
I'm so glad MyFavoriteKid was at school while I was doing this. If he caught me looking like that he'd roll his eyes and I'd get the big "Mommmmmmmmmmmmm!!!"

Band-mommed it all day, up and runnin' hard at 6am...home at 11:30pm.
I have never been so happy to be out of my clothes and into a pair of pajamas in my life.
It was raining at the start of the day. the kid practiced/warmed-up in a partially covered walkway with the help of umbrellas to protect the equipment.
And now I am going to bed myself, with my stuffed bunny.
