Consistently Inconsistent

If by technical difficulties you mean the writer of this blog can’t seem to post anything in a consistent fashion around here, then yes we are having difficulties of the technical fashion. Speaking of fashion my concert wear post seems to be the top viewed thing which is very cool by the way! Thanks to everyone who’s looked at it…or to that one person who’s looked at it 42 times! And because I care about spreading the concert fashion etiquette rules to you good people as I know them and see them, I hope to be back soon with another helping. I’ll give you a hint – it involves a knitted Christmas poinsettia sweater vest. Yeah I know, you can’t wait!

So, things I wish I could say we’ve been up to the last 3 weeks:

  • rockin’ out at some cool concerts like Jack White and The Ranconteurs or ZBB {there was much begging and pleading over Mr. White’s event, but the closest they were coming was Nashville…and it was a school night…and we live 9 hours and 6 minutes from that city in Tennessee….) 
  • rollin’ in the dough from selling drums parts and holding down really cool jobs
  • drinkin’ margaritas by the pool

What has really transpired:

  • We survived Hurriquake 2011! Hurray! And a first anniversary! Awww!
  • We are doing mega amounts of homework (well the boy is, not me per say, but i do my part by asking what do you have for homework? Have you finished your homework? and When are you going to finish your homework? Ya know, helpful stuff like that}
  • We (me) had our butts kicked by 20/20/20 class and the new elliptical at the gym
  • We journeyed into the land of plumbing (again) with the fixing of the drippy copper pipe under the house and by fixing I mean replacing as much of it as we could with something other than copper.
  • We (the husband) had a run in with a black snake. Yes Dad they do keep the mice/moles/voles/varmints away but they are still snaky and when they come up the steps to your porch WHILE you are sitting on it, they can cause slight heart attacks….{in case you couldn’t tell we are not a fan of anything that slithers by the way, but to each his own}
  • We had our first home marching band gig of the season (there was a football game involved but really who goes to watch that?) Too bad the field was still too wet to march on : ( But there’s always next week!
  • We woke up to fall weather! Overnight! Complete with a 20 degree temperature drop! Bring it!! I’m sooo ready!

What I would like to work on:

  • Make the drumroom more presentable. Right now it looks as if an earthquake happened in there. Oh wait…no really it’s not that bad but could use some organization, actually a bigger room would probably help a lot, but the boys have not fully convinced me to turn the living room into the drum room just yet!
  • Take more pictures so I have more fodder for ye ol’ blog. Picture me at the first football game last week, the one mother figure there without a camera. I know I’m failing as a parent…. but the man of the house says that we live with the boy and see him everyday so it was no big deal I forgot the camera! Grandma came to the rescue though- in her bag of tricks she had both the camera and the camcorder {I wonder sometimes am I really her offspring since I so frequently forget the camera or to even take pictures when I do remember it?}

{yes that is the side of his head ….I never claimed to take good pictures….and why is he holding cymbals and not a snare I don’t know…and why did I not take any pictures of the band on the field??? Failing….}

  • Be more consistently consistent in the writing department. Yes I’ve been a slacker here for the past 3 weeks. The first step is admitting you have a problem right?
  • Pick apples and make pies. Yep I’m that easily entertained. I also enjoy letting the boy deejay songs on the iPod whenever we’re in the car. It’s the simple things.

{one more side shot for ya from our apple foray of last year….is anyone else sensing a pattern in my picture taking poses?… Maybe I’m just trying to be sneaky by taking shots when they’re not looking so they don’t realize I’m taking their picture….and by the way it’s really amazing what one year living in the country will do to a kid- ours gained about 6 inches in height and lost about 6 inches of hair…}

Happy Fall Y’all! I’m off to produce more posts, practice proper picture-taking techniques,  procure apples and prepare pies. Peace!
